    Don't buy any and isolate yourself from other smokers for about a week you will make it

    Don't give in to your crazy lady lol. Think of it as your inner child throwing a tantrum because you're not allowing to get its own way.

    I stopped smoking 10 years ago.
    I found the actual craving for a ciggie lasted 3 minutes so i made a point of doing something else for 3 minutes. once you get past the craving the hardest part then is the habit, when u would normally have one etc once u get past that you conquered it. I also found extra mints (sugar free) to help with the need for a cig after you eat.
    Well done for taking the step to stop. Keep it up and good luck.

    I am so glad I have never smoked, nor has my husband or children. My late parents didn't smoke, nor do my siblings. No one has ever been permitted to smoke in our home.

    Now people know the dangers of smoking it is daft if they take it up, or continue to do so, credit to those who do manage to give up the awful habit.

    A neighbour of ours smoked in his youth, but gave it up some years ago. Sadly it still affected his health and he died of lung cancer last year.:eek:

    Humans smoking is such an ANTI humane thing to do. Why would ANYONE willingly ingest a narcotic into their body?

    They not only harm their health... they ACTUALLY PAY TO DO IT..!!

    That's not a smart thing to do.

    I still have shares in BAT...;)

    Keep puffing...:D
