    I deliberately didn't drink when I gave up been years now 9 or so i'd suppose??

    don't go back keep looking forward, you can do it. Don't keep thinking about it,do something you'vebeen putting off to keep you busy clean the shed out etc. You are doing really well over 2 weeks, you can do another 2 . well done

    Sound advice
    but i'm glad im not his neighbour - i'd be a bit hacked off being woken at 5am by lawn mowers and the like being chucked round the garden oO
    Keep it up though jonny619447 it WILL be worth it

    well done jonny, keep up the good work mate!

    Well done, don't give in. It DOES get easier, I gave up nearly a year ago & feel so much better for it....even though I'm a little heavier than I was

    I quit at the beginning of December due to hospital stay. I'm so pleased I did as I've smoked for over 25yrs. Having cravings after meals etc.. but determined to stay off the fags from now on.

    Yay to all of us recent non-smoking converts.

    Have a smoke - and remind yourself why you gave up in the first place. Pumping destructive chemicals into your body, clogging up your lungs, wasting your money and smelling like a large ashtray having everyone talk about the smell when you stand next to them or you walk past them.

    Go on.....you know you want to waste your life away.

    PS : I smoked for 12 years and gave up cold turkey about 5 years ago. It doesnt bother me at all now. In fact I find it repulsive to be honest. I'm not all for this 'Oh well done, congrats', pat on the back stuff....yes its nice to hear but thats not the reason you gave up. You should recognise that the biggest achievement, will and determination comes from you....and your action of stopping is the greatest applause you will receive.

    Don't give up, I used to hear all the stories about how bad smoking was and never believed anyone until I was diagnosed with terminal lung disease! I thought that was a joke too but nope it was real!
    Best thing I ever did as although the damage has been done, it really is a lot better since I gave up!
    The best thing is being able to say "sorry I don't smoke" and then wonder why you are apologising for not smoking!!!
    Keep it up it will be worth it...............

    Surely a fag will be much less destructive than drinking a bottle of vodka?

    I think a shots of vodka is a lot better for you then 20 fags a day, no brainer isnt it.

    I'm paraphrasing, but op said "I've just drank a bottle of vodka and want a cigarette"

    One cigarette will be nowhere near as bad as a bottle of vodka. I think op gave up the wrong thing tbh......

    If the Op had just drunk a bottle of Vodka - he won't be thinking 100% clearly. So if he was considering having 1 cigarette - let's be honest - it wouldn't just stop there. So all of the good work he had put into staying off cigs would all have been undone. I don't know the OP, but even though he had just downed a bottle of booze - that doesn't make him necessarily mean he's addicted. But smoking is something that you can do most of your waking day as opposed to drinking - so the temptation is much greater. Excessive drinkers tend to have to be furtive to hide their habit, but smokers can be quite open about theirs. OP needs to be supported - not to have the offer of an alternative toxin

    Obviously the NHS has wasted it's money on the Quit Kit..........maybe they should add a crate of vodka

    You appear to be condoning the drinking of a bottle of vodka, how strange

    Lol not at all but if turning into an alcoholic helps people quit smoking .........lesser of the 2 evils maybe?

    Seriously though, anyone who can down a bottle of vodka need not worry about a mere problem like smoking.

    i quit smoking 2 years ago, smoked for about 20 years, i don't even think about them anymore, even after a beer

    Worst thing u can do is light one up! it will start u smoking again, the headrush is quite strong and will make it very difficult to not have more until you are hooked again, i gave up for 2 years before and stupidly started again. Learnt my lesson this time around.

    I inject heroin now... ........................................................................... just kiddin.

    the best solution is when ever you think you need one, just bite one of your finger really really hard(but don't chew it though),which will trigger your mind to take care about your finger rather then a fag,and after a few bites hopefully you will give up.and if you still need one(and where all of your finger are bitten)then try on your wife's finger,in this case she will take care of your fag habit for ever
