Yes, taste, smell, breathing, snoring, colds/flus all affected by smoking.
Off them 5 years this month & agree with H2H, best thing I’ve done.


Fair play, can't be easy. 

I'd say there's a serious temptation when you're on a night out.

Zero cravings these days, month 1 was the hardest, didn’t drink for the month which helped then went on a stag & brought an e cig. Once I got through that weekend I never looked back

Day 1 off them Smile I tried to go off them about 3 times in the last 5 years but more determined than ever now, I don't even like smoking its just the habit/addiction, gonna stay off the booze for the first month as well

Off them 3 years on NYE gone, similar to what someone posted here previously I was smoking the last bit of rollie tobacco about 23.50 on NYE and decided that was it, I went cold turkey and found it easy enough to be honest, I think deciding on a whim the way I did made it easier than planning it as I would've built it up in my head.

I'd say maybe once a month I might get a "craving", though it's probably more nostalgia than an actual craving. Hate the smell of them now, was in a bar in a smoking bar in Copenhagen in Nov and it was f**king disgusting Dead

Anyway best of luck everyone Thumbs Up

First day in the office after giving up 4 weeks ago. It crossed me mind before leaving that I normally have a smoke on the way to get the luas. Just decided to run the luas instead, which was grand as I just caught it by the skin of my teeth. Win win

Same here. When I moved to Canada 5 years ago I just gave them up cold Turkey and now cannot stand the smell of them or the smell off people who smoke. They really are disgusting.

The most disgusting thing there is in my eyes now is seeing someone smoking in their car, especially if the windows are up. 

Claudia Schiffer could pull up beside me at the lights, puffing away behind the wheel, and I'd still look away in disgust.

Not going against the grain for the sake of it, but noticed absolutely nothing different, the hangovers are the same, yes, I do get out of breath at times but I'd say that's more to do with my general lack of fitness than anything smoking related, I don't ''feel better'' or capable of running a marathon all of a sudden, other people smoking doesn't really bother me much either and I don't run away from them because of the smell of cigs.  The one thing I'd agree on is the smell of smoke in confined spaces, I wouldn't say disgusting, but whereas before I'd barely notice it, now it is that bit more unpleasant and I find meself wanting fresh air.

It looks like rollies are being banned on Wednesday? It would seem hardly anyone is aware of this. Snuff not to be banned.

Yay, seems like so long ago I was trying to give up. So far in the past now.

Just decided one day that was it, I wasn’t buying another pack and went from there. 

Would recommend not to go out for a month or so while giving up, that is what always use to catch me out. 
Don’t get cravings whatsoever, even if hammered and someone else with me was smoking, was like a switch went off and I find them disgusting now Smile

I’m off them a while now but still smoke when I’m locked. Was smoking at my Christmas party last December then I was in Madrid in February and was smoking over there. Can’t remember the last time I had a smoke sober. I’d guess around two years ago. Just can’t resist the temptation when I’m drunk. I mean after about 6 pints or so and I’m in a pub. I’m grand when having a few cans at home.

Norwegian lad gave me some in Edinburgh before, it was dreadful!
Greed has won, big finance has won. Whatever small role elite clubs still play in the local communities from which they grew is dwarfed now by their position as global brands.

Off licences and pubs sell it. It's good for a blocked nose but you'd be sneezing for an hour after it.
