        • To what one at a time ..or two  

          Yes cutting down in stages works for some but I would be worried I would go out for a drink and my careful 3 fags will suddenly become 40 overnight ......

          You remind me of the Irish snooker player Alex Higgins who smoked two at a time and was a joke on the telly for it .

          I don’t think snooker makes extreme sport as a hobby !

        • My horoscope of today 1/2/09: ARIES You need to avoid the temptation to take on new challenges today—you’ve got enough going on! It’s one of those days when you are much better off sticking with the tried and true.

          Great excuse for me!

          carrots, celery, anything but sweets. lol
          I gained about 15 pounds.

          I am on year 3 of quitting.

          It is a bitch!! lol

          I quite for both pregnancies then started back up about 5-6 mos after.

          My hubz is on year 4.

          I tried the patch, the nicotin gum...never worked.

          I finally quit cold turkey.
          Day 5 and for me was the worst then it got better after that.

          Good luck, you can do it...but only do it if you  are ready!!

        • Thank you for the support ......

          Howard good look your working there with two “Fags/ciggies” .....
          I’ve been up since 6am UK time and I’m in the process of now scrubbing the flat and doing a mountain of ironing I’ve also been chewing normal gum like a nutter ... drinking coffee ........
          I’ll keep you posted - I’m of to Weight Watchers Monday so I can then go food shopping Tuesday and only buy the right food - If I hit the supermarket today I would inhale the food ....I’m so not replacing one problem with another.

          Who would have thought a small stick of veg matter and paper would cause this amount of chaos ....

        • Actually I've been up since 6am and I've been very busy (read manic) cleaning , more filing and then de cluttering.

          I'm now going to whizz through all my work emails ready for work on Monday ............

          I’m in a very upbeat moood and when I felt like having a ciggie I’ve cleaned my teeth - so in a month I’ll be toothless or have very white nashers .....

          Alex Higgins had a wild torrid affair with my old school friend Siobhan Kidd  - it was as he was just going into melt down - godness could that man drink and smoke and it had no effect on him - in fact I think he used to drink himself sober ....he was a nightmare when she broke up with him - stalking ...pouring paint on her car - sugar in the petrol tank!

          As they say fine line between genius and madness ....sums him up well ...

        • I NEED to stop, again!  Yeah, I said, again.  I smoked for almost 25+ years.  Got sick, couldn’t breathe and just stopped.  Started back 8 months ago (stress on the job).  I am determined to stop again.  Dr. gave me Chantix to try.  I cannot do patches and gum - they make my heart race.

          I WILL stop again!  Good wishes to all of you!
