Excellent stuff! Keep o ngoing mate cause you know it will be worth it.

I havent smoked since 2006 and dont miss is one bit.

One you get past 2 weeks the cravings will lessen as you become weaned off the cancer sticks. Watch what you eat though as your appetite will return with a vengance.

Keep it up, (you're going to need the money, your buying ALL the booze :D )

Have you quit completely or have you been on one of those electronic cigs :?:

Giving up cigarettes was one of the best things I've ever done, good on you dude :)

Habits are a peculiar, interesting part of the way we act and, whilst giving up, being able to see it objectively made it a lot easier. Not doing it will make you more aware of your actions, take advantage of this if you can and see how you act when you want something as opposed to when your body/brain wants something. We're peculiar creatures and times of change can tell us a lot about how we work, or how we think we work. It can be surprising :)

I won't wish you luck as you've already made the decision you need to make, instead I'll congratulate your sensible decision and hope you may make many more :)

Without my sandvich, I am useless. I must eat my sandvich true. I must shoot straighter than my enemy, who is trying to kill me. I must shoot him before he shoots me. I will. Before lunch I swear this creed: my sandvich and myself are defenders of my country, we are the masters of our enemy, we are the saviors of my life. So be it, until there is no enemy, but sandvich. Om nom.

After three days, the nicotine is out of your system so the physical side of the addiction is gone. It's the psychological habit part which is the real bitch to get rid of.

Just remember, you're not dying and there's nothing to cough out of your lungs when the tiny hairs inside them start growing back lol

i recently tried to give up smoking..... 24 hour patch and the nasal spray and still ending up smoking through them.... went back to the no smoking clinic and the lady there said my GP won't prescribe the Tablets as they are too expensive *sigh*... but keep up the good work man :) :cheers:

Keep going. I never started smoking and when I see how many health problems my deceased stepfather had due to smoking, it makes me wonder why he never tried stopping.

Tar'el, I highly recommend using a vaporiser rather that trying to get the tablets.

Try cutting the patches down (or even in half) or you may become dependant on them :shock:

Keep going though matey, you're doing fine.

think of all the money that you are saving :D
