You've got all the luck I can give...it'll certainly make you more attractive to the opposite sex...I just hate the smell of smoke on women and it's a real passion killer in my opinion..but more important is the health issue....I'm sure you have the positive attitude to kill the habit...and think of all that extra cash to spend on HOT DEALS!!

very sensible fireheaven..I've seen many increase their size after giving up the cancer sticks...they resort to sweets as an alternative...and then get addicted to them...keep to the fruit and your chassis will stay in shape..I recall seeing part of it in the tat thread..and the part on show looked very tempting LOL.

Thanks everyone - day 2 :thumbsup:

Good luck fireheaven. I gave up almost a year ago using the boots support service. It doesn't take long before it gets easier and before you know it you won't even think about them.

Best advice to remember is cravings only last 5 minutes so if you can last that amount of time you'll be fine.

Clean out your car so there is no ash or smell of smoke in it anymore.

If you do start to crave have a drink of something cold (non-alcoholic) or take a big lung full of air - it feels great!

Hope it works out for you.

Fireheaven, i stopped smoking 11 months ago now and managed to put on just over a stone. I really dont mind though as i am healthier than i have ever been. 4 weeks ago i joined slimming world and have lost 10.5lbs so the weight wont stay with you even if you do pile it on.

Good luck and remember Dont give up giving up:-D

Day 3 still going strong. Can I ask the others who have given up - how long do the cravings last for ??

TBH, I have forgotten :? I know this doesn't help but they just went. I'd say give it a week or two....maybe more?? I don't know...

Keep up the good work tho!!! :thumbsup: :w00t:
#26
That's good, for some unknown reason I was thinking 12 months!!!
#27
wow, 3 days? that great. well done. i know people that couldnt last 3 mins - without a smoke i mean, get your minds out the gutter lol.
#28
Fireheaven, well done and keep it up. Im always encouraging my friends to quit!!

Make me proud :)
#29
I'm sure the physical addiction to nicotine only lasts a few days. By that I mean your body craves it. After a few days its all out of your system.

The rest is down to habit.
#30
Just think of the excellent example you're showing your kids - keep up the good work
#31
Well done so far!! :-D

Keep up the good work and remember we are all behind you here. :thumbsup:

Thank goodness I've never tried smoking in my life but, I have every sympathy for you as have friends who have given up and I take my (imaginary) hat off to you and them. :)

Only similiar thing I have is dieting/healthy eating/cutting down, call it what you like and that's tough. But, I believe giving up smoking is harder, so I admire you for what you are doing. :)

Once again, well done and keep going, your doing brilliantlly!!! :thumbsup:
#32
Well done. Just think of all the things you can buy with the cash you would have wasted on smokes.
Buy yourself something to the value of what you saved in the first week, puts into perspective how expensive cigarettes are.

Thanks everyone for the nice comments and motivation. DAY 5 and it seems to be getting slightly easier now I am getting out of the habit. I was a roll up person so the cost wasn't huge £5 a week but its the health issue that made me want to give up. I used sit each night when the kids where in bed and make 20 or so for the next day. I have now entered myself into the Cancer Research Race for Life and go training (in a fashion, lots of huffing/puffing lol) when I would usually have been making my roll ups.


Woo, 300 posts

Congratulations on 300 posts, and great to hear how well you're doing kicking the habit :)
#35
Well done Firehaven, I know its not easy, I gave up 7 years ago and what I was spending a week on cancer sticks I spent on a car so couldnt afford to go back to them.

Keep up the good work !!:-D

I really need to quit, I'd save at least £100 a month:oops:

Go to see the NHS Stop Smoking service in your area. They are so helpful and give you loads of info and you can try all the NRT products available and they will give you a prescription for the two of your choice. Without them I think I would have struggled a lot more. :thumbsup:

Just think what you could buy with that money and how you would also benefit health wise. Give it ago, nothing to lose (except mabye temper when withdrawl sets in ):w00t:
