I gave up last Easter, really wanted to, went to the docs and was given champix tablets they are fantastic, you take the tablets and still smoke by the second week i had smoked my last ciggy. I have not even had a puff on one since that day.

i was a heavy smoker for 30 years until 2 weeks ago. went on patchs and havn't really felt like having a cig apart from the odd small craving.
My advice is dont use any aids that you hold in between ur fingers as this just reinforces the habit side of smoking.

Good on you Max. Another tip, avoid second hand smoke, it will trigger cravings, even years after you quit.

I'm the opposite. Second hand smoke really puts me off.

Yet, every now and again, I really really fancy a drag. I think that once having been a smoker, you are always a smoker who doesn't rather than a non-smoker.

Ignored all government warnings (the rebel in me!!!) but gave up Jan 26th 2000 and have never looked back . Used homeopathy to help and, for me it seemed to work. Keep it up

Well done to all that are stopping, possibly one of the most beneficial dicisions in life you will make. Which I'm sure most above me will agree. Well done all

Me too Lemmy, but prolonged exposure to smoke, even though it bothers me terribly, will trigger little cravings for a day or two after. It's imoossible for us to avoid smoke totally, some of our neighbours smoke, so especially in the summer with windows open, we get their smoke.

Sounds like you are as sensitive to it as me. My pet hate is walking down the street and someone in front exhales a lungful of smoke just as you are breathing in. Until I get a grip, I momentarily feel nauseous.

Whenever I light the barby, my neighbours call the fire dept. It's been the same wherever we've lived.Smile

Nicotine is a strange thing - i signed up to this site about 3 years ago but haven't been very active, due to an illness i have "Ulcerative Colitis" - some people with this Disease and also crohn's have Nicotine Therapy to stop it from flaring up!

I've also known people after smoking for many years then pack up and then they get very serious illnesses - maybe the nicotine acts as a barrier.
