    Default Non smoking :)

    I've stopped smoking, or at least i'm trying to

    Smoked a maximum of 10 a day since i was 15 so thats 12 odd years.

    Had my last on Sunday night and seem to be doing well so far but its so hard!

    The cravings are immense and i'm breathing through them like i were pregnant.

    Don't want to spend out on patches because it kinda defeats the object of saving money (apart from the other benefits)

    Any other tips on how to get through this? its the first time i have really pushed myself to give up.

    I tried to give up over 22 years ago as my ex wanted me to. No use.
    Gave up a couple of years later because I wanted to. Success. Took up golf with the money i saved and wished i'd done it long before.
    Now i have the odd cigar at weddings, birthday parties etc. Not a cigarette has been any where near me for 20 years and never will.

    You will put on weight though as you can taste your food better and seem to "snack" where you would have lit up. Go for a walk, take up jogging, got to the gym. Anything to stimulate the brain rather than think about needing a fag. It is a habit that is obviously highly addictive but the more you think about it the harder it is to stay off them. HTH

    P.S. Just smell your clothes next morning when you have been out in the pub etc. If that is not enough to make you give up

    i don't smoke, but when i'm out in the pub, i get home stinking of cigarette smoke!! i'll be very blunt here.....i don't see how anyone can live with the smell permanently, it's vile!

    that alone could be enough motivation.

    i welcome the day when smoking is banned in public areas!

    To give up smoking you need first to identify why you smoke - if it is stress relief its a piece of pi55......long slow breathing reduces stress, and what are you doing when you smoke - yes, long heavy breaths - therefore Dr. JCB's tip of the day - practice slow breathing and you'll soon realise that you can calm yourself down.

    If its for any other reason - all you need to do is write down the amount you spend on a packet of fags eveytime you do so - then after 3-4 months tot-up the amounts and go......bu99er me I could've bought something to mod me vec with that much!!!

    Good luck with giving up. I don't want to introduce a low note here, but I had to watch my mum, a lifelong smoker, go through cancer of the oesophagus, which she got through after some very heavy duty surgery, then cancer of the lungs, which took her away.
    After seeing her suffer, I could never, ever condone smoking.

    Just my 2p-worth.

    Phil
