Right...

I've decided to make a proper go of quitting smoking. I haven't had one since saturday, and I don't plan on having one. Furthermore, I'm trying to cut down my booze intake, so this could be fun... >_<

All I ask for is support - and if anyone wants to quit too (anything - not just the smokes) post here, and we can offer each other support!

*sigh* This is going to be hard...

Good fer you inky!

Giving up smokin is hard, so it's prolly best not to make it worse by cuttin the alcyfrol at the same time...

I gave up smokin 4 years ago an I can honestly say it's the best thing I ever did. Well, certainly one of em anyways! What I did in the end was have a jar, an I used to put me ciggy money into it. Seein all that cash not goin up in smoke (especially after a couple o months) is a big incentive to keep ya off them! After a few weeks I'd amassed enough to buy a DVD player! biggrin.gif

Anyway, best o luck buddy, an if ya need any help or whatever from a reformed smoker, gimme a shout!

After a very successful campaign of Bullying, intimidation and random acts of violence I have recently coerced my favourite Turkish work-colleague into quitting smoking.

She has been unlit for just over 1 month now...

She started by buying one the the many selfhelp books on the subject (just to collate everything she already knew and put some order into her efforts)

Then she got me to but her a packet of the no nicotine no tobaco cigarettes (sounds odd but they do exist)

Then she realised that these new smokes tasted and smelt really bad...

Then she smoked them until she could bear it no more (and her mind had subconsciously made the link between bad taste and smell to smoking)

Then she gave up...

So far so good...

If you want I can post the name title etc of the book she used, and the details of these new ciggies and where to but them from.

The only time I really need (and enjoy) a smoke is when I drink. Furthermore, I was drinking faaar too much in the not-too-distant past, so a good detox is in order...

And thanks for the voice of experience - the jar idea is one that half-worked for me before. I think I may just buy a new album every coupla weeks - that'll keep me on the road to recovery... laugh.gif

kitten - those cigarettes sound odd... I can see how they would work, certainly.

For me, it helps that the last smoke I had was a Marlboro Light. Yecchh... I hate those things...

It's not that smoggy where I live. lol

Plus if the governor has his way ciggy taxes will be raised to where a pack will go from 3.85 to around 6 dollars. I need to quit cause I need to breathe..........

I really hope Inky does better than I probably will though. I don't have much faith in myself so being Inky's quitting buddy may help me more than him. lol
