See the gp or nurse and get patches, gum etc on prescription. Put all the mmoney she would have spent on fags in a jar and see it grow.

pleanty of fresh orange juice, also brewers yeast tablets, also avoid things that made you have your ciggies, so if you enjoyed a ciggie after a meal, make sure you wash up straight away so removes the habit of a ciggie first, probably in a morning cup of tea and ciggie first before brushing teeth, so now brush teeth first etc etc

its all about breaking the habit, so try to change the way you do things

Just try and picture herself in 30 years time.

Wrinkled face, nicotene stained fingers, clothes smelling of cigarettes.

Worst of all lung problems and difficult breathing and so on.

I watched my wife's father die of smoking related illness a couple of years ago and it was not nice. Lack of breath, kidney failure, gradual decline and then death.

If we are going to be honest about it smoking is one of the STUPIDEST things we do.

Roll up a few leaves, stick them in our mouths, and set fire to them. Madness !

Just tell her to stick with it an she wont regret it.

i always wish i had NEVER started

Yup i'm the same. I started at about 15 and still smoke (i'm 34 now) :oops:. I managed to give up during my 3 pregnancies - although I found that really hard during the last one. Nothing can be said to justify it - It looks/smells nasty, kills people and we pay a ridiculous amount of money for the so called pleasure. I never smoke in the house (always out in the back garden) but as my kids are getting older they keep asking me to stop too. I soo wish that I had never started. Good Luck btw :).
