This Little Bit Of Kit

Is hopefully going to help me stop smoking...so far in a week I've cut down from around 40 roll-ups a day to less than 10..and after 30+ years that has to be a good thing...the desperation of a smoker can be hard to understand..we find the money for tobacco no matter what..if,as I do, we have asthma, we just use inhalers more than we should, we look at all the horrible warning on packets, then light up anyway...I have tried before to stop but I never lasted more than a couple of days. I've seen some good results from friends on facebook and I'm determined to join them this time!

Now, having imposed a computer time ration on myself (in front of the computer is where I smoke most) I'm going to catch up on some of the things I've missed this week

Good luck!

I just stopped a couple of years ago (without any 'quit smoking aids') ... gotta admit I put on a little weight afterwards but that's ok with me ;-) and it's definitely worth it.

Good Luck to you, my daughter quit about 6 years ago, and added some pounds too, but is soo glad she quit.

You're missing some of Vincent's tea-tree chew sticks love - although they only seem to work for about a month at a time ;0)

Good luck on your quest. Like I suggested to someone at work once who was trying to quit, just set fire to a £5 note every time you light up; it may focus the mind wonderfully!

Good luck! I had a colleague who quit with those cigarette holder things while losing several stone so she could have surgery. So the weight gain is not inevitable.

Good luck, Eliza. I never was a smoker. My "addiction" is, always has been, and always will be...FOOD. And that is a battle I've been fighting my entire life. Wishing you nothing but the best!!!!
