    congratulations when i gave up smoking i used to suck sour sweets when i needed to smoke take one day at a time

    put the money that you would have spent on fags in a pot to treat yourself
    good luck x

    well done keep it up

    why did you guys/gals start smoking ?

    Ive never smoked, not even a try of one, so i cant see what the attraction is :thinking:

    Congratulations,
    I stopped 3.5 years ago now, best advice has been given already, take it one day at a time, if you cave in and have one don't stress just class it as a blip and keep focused on the end result.

    Good luck

    so why did you choose to take up something that eats away at your health and finances with no benefits whatsoever?

    odd life choice:?

    i gave up after nearly 17 years of hard smoking when the ban came in. it did help that they done away with our smoking room at work and that no one else smoked at home but i did it and its the best thing i ever done but know i like to suck a mint instead.also this is where you find out who is your friend they either support you or annoy you by saying are our sure you dont want one.
    good luck

    don't tell people you've stopped smoking, the pressure is too much, I've … don't tell people you've stopped smoking, the pressure is too much, I've been off them for 5 days now, mood swings range from depressed to deliriously happy every 5 minutes, and I've ate like a pig all week, good luck anyway and good for you, keep it up!!!!

    maybe but it dont get me paranoid or lead to stronger herbs! :whistling:

    stop thinking about them, get diversions. if u r thinking about fags all day u will restart..

    Maybe the thought of seeing your grandchildren graduate one day will be enough to get you through!

    I know it's not all about the money but you can work out how much money you will save as a non smoker with this calculator.

    Put the money you would have spent on fags in a pot, save it for a while, watch it grow while you slowly become more healthy and when you've got enough do something great with it!:-D
    Don't worry if you feel a bit chesty for a while it will soon pass and you will start to feel the benefit.
    You CAN do it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    good luck, the patches are good. Id say just keep busy and try not to think about it :thumbsup:

    Well then "4 stop smoking" makes no sense.



    lol just realised what u meant iv means"i have " sorry grammers not my strong point :oops:

    I recommend Allen Carr's 'Easy way to stop smoking' book. For a couple of quid (or free from the library!) you can stop smoking easily, forget the patches.
    I read this book about 5 years ago without expecting it work, but by the end of the book I put out my last fag... until about 3 years later after a drunken fag at a party & I started again. I read the book again & haven't smoked now for another 2 years!
    The book explains why we smoke & why we get the cravings etc. so when you understand that it's easier to stop.

    thanks! i asked for advice not put downs :x

    Well done! I quit 2 months ago and it is hard work, but you just have to be strong Putting the money is a great way of showing you how much you are saving, but also think of your family and friends. If you contracted a smoking related disease, could you look them in the eye to tell them....its a heavy self guilter, but works for me when I'm feeling weak!
