I was a smoker for 20 yrs  carton of 200 Marlboro a week  i gave up in '85 when they were $15 a ctn they're now 87 a ctn.
I tried to quit 6 time after a week each time my wife couldn't  stand my mood and bought a pack and that was it she studied hypnosis and under suggestion told me when i need a fag to eat a tic tac not real smart i was quickly dependand on tic  tac's lol . We tried again we swapped the tic tac's for each fag tasting like petrol it worked a treat. The worst cravings only lasted a few weeks and my biggest problem was what to do with my hands !!!!!!!!!!!!! so i got stuck into modelling.
In times of severe stress (every time mother inlaw visited ) i craved a smoke real bad this lasted 7 or 8 yrs

Stick at it Guys you'll be better off in the long run, it's been 24yrs since i've had bronchitis or pleursey.

Well it's ten weeks on Tuesday since I stopped - and now this part of the ride is easy. I'm 250 up on the spends, woohoo me! I've no desire for one anymore - secondhand smoke smells awful, and I had one dream a week ago where I'd had one, followed by a major guilt complex on waking up.  %)

Most important thing is the health benefits and having saved all that cash!  :-))

Keep it up! Istopped five years ago and still smoke in my dreams
Are you noticing that the nice fresh open air these days smells
more of smoke as every smoker now has to stand outside public
houses, shops,offices and all public buildings.
I seem to come out of shopping centres (smoke free) into
the smoky open air
