I know this isnt the usual hot deal, but i felt i had to write about it as it is a fabulous price saver if you really want to quit, i went through the drive through in my area and saw a banner for this, i enquired last week and signed up, they took off the shelves a packet of inhalators at around £17.00 and a packet of 24mg patches for £25.00 step one . That totals to about £42 and i only paid a pound for it, this continues every week, i just go in they take my breath and give me what i need again, apparently the goverment would rather spend out on this than treat people with smoking related illnesses as this can go into the thousands, if you have benefits you get this totally free by the way. Im not sure if all boots do this but i think its pretty widespread so maybe you need to go in or give them a call.
This is my 5th day of being cigarette free, after 19 yrs of smoking

Awwww thankyou Arnold, i feel ok actually but i will be honest, ive done the patches before but needed the cigarette to mouth thing as it was habit so thee inhalator has come in very handy.
suspended#3
Keep up the good work. It is hard to stop smoking but eventually you will feel so much better and cleaner. I ended up a fresh air freak and now cannot tolerate the smell of smoke even though I have been stopped around nine years now. Again well done

Thankyou BlueBindy, i have already noticed my perfume is stronger and food is sharper on flavour, im feeling so much better for it. To be honest smoking is unsociable now, yrs ago we all smoked in pubs, work, homes everywhere but its just not really accepted now and i feel bad going outside for a ciggie when im out for lunch with people.

5 days well done dont give up mate ive been smoke free about a year it will take a bit of time. but stick with it. Turning down and wanting a fag will get easier and easier. you will have a few close shaves but think of the money youve saved and the health benefits. well done keep going.:thumbsup:

Thankyou Sedge, ive had some great comments and you have just added to my willpower xxxxxxxxxxx

Seems like a great deal for all the wanna-be quitters, and congratulations on 5 days smoke free.

I only smoked for about 1 year, whilst i was at college, but if i remember rightly i went cold turkey and just stuck to it. The hardest part used to be going out for a drink at night, but now with the smoking ban its much easier to avoid the smokers and thusly, the temptation.

Keep up the good work, you smell infinitley nicer, even from this far away!!!

Thats a really good deal, hot from me.

Good luck giving up, i used the patches for 2 weeks brilliant in my opinion, i smoked for 10 years before. 8 months later I am still smoke free :-)
#9
Hey well done and keep it up. I gave up last year (18 April) for the 5th and last time something was different this time I knew I wanted to stop and didnt want to smoke anymore. I also went to Boots but you paid 1 prescription fee and you got an 8 week course went in every week to breath in the machine and have a little chat then they gave me my weeks supply I chose patches to start with then went on to chewing gum. As I was told just take 1 day at a time if you laspe and have a smoke start again (quitting not smoking) Just because you had 1 dont give up giving up. Well done again

i think its an offence to sell to anyone under 18. or for him/her to buy or attempt to buy.
#13
CONGRATULATIONS, BUT KEEP IT UP. It really does take years but gets easier as time goes on.
After a few weeks buy yourself a present with the money you have saved.
A good post.. Heat added
#14
brilliant, thanks OP, good spot. might make enough profit off these to keep me in fags at least.
#15
Hey good luck eveyone - I am on month 6 and am not really thinking about it any more. Just gave up the patches about a month ago and was quite ratty for a while but now have come off it.

I started cycling wjen I gave up and done alot of running which really helped - not only keeping weight off but also makes you feel good and glad to have given up.

Treat yourself after a couple of months - think of all the money saved and can spend on stuff you'll never need on here. No, jokes aside - i bought myself a £1000 carbon bike - now I definitely cannot afford to smoke.

Hot deal by the way, I got a 3 month prepaid prescription card twice at £28 a pop so cost me £56 in total. Used to get the patches and inhalator as OP.

Went to a party last night and everyone was smoking - didn't bother me

Good luck all
#16
Great Deal.

Going to a smoking cessation nurse would cost you £7.20 for a prescription (free on benefits) so £1 is a really good deal.

Im on day 133 of not smoking, down to 1 x 2mg chewing gum per day.........3 days of gum left then going solo. Never felt better!
#17
Boots that stop you smoking? Must try those.
#18
So is it £10 a week?

It is an offence to do a lot of things but people still do them especially underage.

Anyone from the age of 12 can take up this offer..if not from boots / chemist but from the smoking nurse.

Concrete ones! stop you doing quite a lot!
#22
Congratulations....keep up the good work...it gets easier day by day! I gave up 5 years ago today after watching a programme on BBC Wales about the university hospital in Wales....they were following people there who all had various ailments caused by smoking!!

Like you said the smoking ban makes it easier not to smoke when youre out too!

£1 a week is a bargain. Pack of fags about a fiver now??
#23
:thumbsup: Well done to you for deciding to give up..keep up the good work and I hope its not too difficult for you.
Thank you for posting this, I will let my sister know,she gave up on the 1st Jan but Im sure she would like to take up this offer to help her along the way.
Thank u xx

Champix can have some quite severe side effects...if anyone is offered this treatment do some research first. It works for approx 1 in 4.....the rest fail due to problems. Govt see 25% success as being a success.
#27
A friend of mine said that he tried the patches but they were a nightmare to light!
#28
I'm having a cig whilst reading this..
I quit and was 'clean' for 2 years until i had a car crash a year ago, This was when i thought stuff it we could go at anytime, i may as well enjoy myself before then.
#29
Well done, keep it up. You'll get there in the end.

I gave up just over two years ago at New Year and haven't looked back since. Wasn't the first time I tried but I went cold turkey and it worked for me. The smoking ban in public places definitely helps. Now our friends are doing the same. I smoked for 24 years. The best of luck to you.

We understand that giving up smoking isn't as easy as going a day, a week or a month without a cigarette, but a change that requires persistence and willpower.

We also know that difficult changes are easier with support, which is why the NHS-supported Stop Smoking Service is the vital step you can take to quitting smoking for good.

The Stop Smoking Service includes:

* A private and confidential consultation with your Boots Pharmacist
* Regular counselling sessions
* Nicotine replacement such as patches, lozenges and gum*
* A Smokalyser test to assess your carbon monoxide levels**
* Expert advice on becoming smoke free - from how to curb the cravings to what health benefits to expect

Just in case you weren't already aware, giving up smoking is one of the most important decisions you'll ever make to improve your health. It will help to cut your risk of developing some of the serious illnesses associated with smoking, including some forms of cancer such as lung and throat cancer, and heart disease.

It will also benefit your family and your finances, especially when you consider our Stop Smoking Service is FREE (please note that products recommended by the service such as nicotine replacement patches or lozenges may not always be free and varies according to your local NHS Primary Care Organisation).

To find out more visit your local Boots pharmacy today for a private and confidential chat with a member of our pharmacy team. Their expert advice is available without an appointment, up to 7 days a week. Some stores even offer a late night opening service. To check which pharmacy may suit you, please go to our Store Locator.

You can also find free NHS support through NHS choices, click here to check for your nearest NHS service.

*Will vary according to local Primary Care Organisation service criteria & eligibility

**Available in selected pharmacies only

I just wanted to second this. After many years of smoking, I gave up cold turkey using Alan Carr's method. I can't guarantee it'll work for everyone of course, and the first couple of weeks weren't easy. But after that I felt much better, and after three months the cravings had totally disappeared. I don't even think about it any more, even though many of my friends still smoke. Just another option to try, if you fancy making a completely clean break from the nicotine!
