    Ok, ok, I know it's bad for you and it uses up your cash but I need to stop but I quite like it. I should never have started (heard that before) but hey ho what's done is done.

    Did you have a puff and if so did you manage to quit? How did you do it?

    Any ideas/suggestions warmly received

    I read the book "Allen Carr's Easyway to Stop Smoking" and I haven't smoked since, nor do I want to smoke ever again.

    Some of you like it the day after Thanksgiving. It's called "Cold Turkey".

    I've never smoked in my life---never even tried it, but I applaud you that you're trying to quit. Good for you!

    Laser therapy is a new way of treating smoking addiction. Here's a link you might want to check out:

    Good luck!

    Here are some tips:

    A lot of smokers find it helpful to:

    • change their routine.....if they usually smoke & have coffee right when they get up in the morning, they change it to showering first, then coffee, etc.
    • keep their hands busy....get a squeezy toy or something to fiddle with so your hands don't feel awkward.....when smoking, your hands are busy a lot of the time, so replacing it with something else helps avoid triggers.

    After many years of intensive research and experimentation I developed the Closet Smoking Cessation Strategy (CSCS).

    The technique works like this:

    1. I chain you up and lock your ass in a closet.
    2. 30 Days later I let you out.

    Note: This also works for curing morbid obesity.

    LMAO @ Elsewhere!

    Can we assume that bread and water and the latest copies of the WT will be available during this time?

    Only water, salt tablets and a daily multivitamin.... if you behave yourself and you don't make any noise or try to contact the authorities.

    THe gum is easy thing to transition to but then you have to get off the gum which can take a while but is better for you than smoking

    Easy, unless you want to freeze yer baws off smoking outside a pub or club come the winter up there you're gonna have to stop. A way to really put you off the smell and show you how much you STINK is to take a load of cigarette butts put them in a jar with a little bit of water and seal the jar with the lid over night. When you feel the need for a cigarette, unscrew the jar lid and take a big sniff of the contents. The smell will put you off

    What is that on your avatar?
