Gonna give this a try again on Ash Wednesday but won't be going cold Turkey. There are small lozenges you can get that are made by the same crowd that do nicorette which you take when a craving hits. I found them ok but didn't succeed the last time. Would find it very difficult to do without something for the cravings
I could agree with you but then we'd both be wrong.

Lasted 4 days. Think I attacked it wrong. Going to cut down to 3 a day first and weave myself off that way. The mental side of having one in the morning after lunch and before bed time is what killed me.
Always said I'd quit before I'm 30. 29 in a couple of weeks so on track to do it before then have already cut down considerably

Don't smoke midweek ever and don't get any cravings to do so anymore, smoke only when drinking and that's not even every week anymore so am happy to keep it that way.

Ease yourself off them Andy

Im delighted Im off the fags on nights out since Christmas.
Ive had a trip away to Liverpool, a few 30ths and a medals night since so Ive been really tested but never budged.
I think it comes down to really wanting to get off them.
I tried a couple of years ago but, with hindsight, my heart wasn't in it.
Oh Poland we loved you.....

Haven't smoked since Saturday, major factor being that I've now got pneumonia. Sick of smoking at this stage anyway, reckon I'll be able to stay off them this time.

Aul fella smoked 60 a day and went to the Allen Carr clinic about ten years ago and never smoked again. He then sent my mother and she never smoked again and a lot of his mates went and it worked for them. I know he has a book and I know a few lads that read it but most of them went back on. You don't need me to tell you that you have to actually really want to give them up. But if that Allen Carr clinic worked for my aul fella it will work for any of you.
