So difficult to do, I cheated and got an E-cig Image Image Worked though. Image
xx
So did I Image Image Image Image
Is using an e-cig cheating? I wouldnt have though it was any more than nicotine patches Image
The doc told me it counted as giving up Image
My brother gave up many years ago.......he's still chewing the gum Image
It's not the nicotine in cigarettes that do the damage - it's all the other chemicals ! But it's the nicotine that is addictive.

I've tried quite a few times to give up - the last time was back in 2008 before I moved in with Mum. Even my GP agreed that it was not the right time to try Image

I really would like not to smoke, but can't afford to put on another stone in weight like I did back then (add another 2 stone gained in the intervening caring period and you can see why I'm hesitating Image ).
Well done Dee....I gave up 12yrs ago!!!! Hubby gave up 10yrs ago and the state he is in the moment with ((COPD/EMPHYSEMA)) he wishes he had never started!!!

So keep up the good work!! Image Eve x
Well done everyone who's managed to give up "the weed". I'm lucky - it's one vice I've never had, but I know how difficult it was for my dad.
