    Default Quiting Smoking - Some Advice Please...

    I gave up ages ago and I am all cool with it but I have a problem. My brother in law is smoking and I need to get him to quit. He is 16 years and if he carrys on smoking it could kill him due to a family heart problem we have just found out.

    You would think would stop him. But no.

    So a bribe is in order, a beating wouldn't help! I will be buying him some suspension for his car if he meets his targets and a few other bits. But I need to know where can we get these patches or gum for free? I know you can somewhere... But where I don't know.

    I gave up by just stopping completely from 60 a day and I suppose was lucky. Sure it was a struggle for a while but I got on with it. But I understand for some people it is harder.

    Any advice greatly appreciated.

    Patches and other items such as gum and lozenges are available F.O.C from Dr. Get appointment at Drs or local clinic, to recieve items free he must agree to go to a quit club for a few weeks.

    Alternatively you could just get him the patches £20 or there abouts from Boots etc.

    12 week course of patches £240, then let him buy his own suspension with the money he's saved

    How you gonna check he ain't smoking out of your sight? breath analysis? cough in my face dear brother in law.....

    My experience is that, like any addiction, in the first place you self must want to stop smoking/drinking/..... If that is absent: forget it.

    The only thing you can do is try to "re-program" him with subtle remarks/behaviour like pulling a face when he talks to you and when he asks why you tell him he has a foul breath. Comment that his clothes smell so bad. Make him slightly social unaccepted within your family, if he is any kind of a social person he'll adjust his behaviour to group behaviour....but in the end he must want himself to stop smoking.

    If you promise him something: he will live op to that promise but in the long run will fail you.

    sad but true

    Cut his hands off


    Alan Carr's book might help, watched him on tv the other night on Horizon, just a few short clips of what he had to say nearly convinced me, and it doesn't involve patches, he reckons they cause ppl to fail, can p2p the edits of what he said if you like.
