Wife stopped at same time as me, 9 years ago, inducement was that whoever fell off the wagon first, gave the other 250. Now as a Yorkshireman - - - -  {-) Neither of us have weakened, although, there are still times I could kill a cig but I know darned well, one would lead to two etc.

   Stick with it Nick, you know it makes sense.

I stopped 'cold turkey' some years ago - got fat, not from substituting, just from not walking around smoking outside the house in the evening - I've lost that extra 2 stone now - but the best bits about giving up?

I'm a little fitter, stuff does taste better, I've noticed I don't larrup my food in spicy sauces or use loads of salt anyomre, I don't smell like an ashtray and my kids will sit next to me when they visit. My car doesn't smell either - and I haven't got burn marks in the leather upholstery. I seem to have more time to finish little jobs and the most noticable thing? My wallet is never empty.

There's absolutely no negatives to giving up - deal with any issues you think you may have and continue the good work you've done so far.

Don't,  however, become one of those over zealous anti-smoking nutters that preach from on high - you know how difficult it can be, encourage don't bully!

Oh yes Glasshopper, SWTSMBO is like that, totally intolerant with the emphasis on the rant. I flatly refuse to "preach" to anyone else because I know how much enjoyment I got out of smoking and no matter what is said or shown, it always happens to someone else.

Good Luck!!

Well done mate, it just shows you what can be done when you put your mind to it. Whatever method you use to help to stop
smoking, at the end of the day it is willpower that counts. Keep at it.

Managing great on the Champix, no side effects, still not smoking.Latest savings financed a gas tank and 1 1/2 inch ceramic burner from Forrest Classics, so, apart from the health benefits, more dosh to spend on model boat stuff, a win win situation if ever there was one :} :} :} :-)) :-)) :-))

Good Morning all, well, sorry to say, I've let the side down and picked up the fags again, temporarily I hope. Had a traumatic experience Tuesday last, My littleYorkshire Terrier, Minnie, was attacked and killed by an out of control Rottweiller, an ex guard dog that is now owned by one of the local winos, this bloke can not even look after himself, let alone a dangerous dog such as a rottweiller. It sneaked up behind us (minnie was on her lead, as she allways is) silently, and grabbed her, I was bitten trying to rescue her, but she bled to death in my arms. The Police and the Housing Department say they can't do anything about it as a person was not attacked. so my little sidekick of 14 years is no longer with us and I am totally devastated, hence the relapse in the no smoking exercise. I will have to get back on course before its to late, but it is a bit hard at the moment. <:( <:(

Thats absolute rubbish!

Speak to the RSPCA if he allowed his dog out unsupervised then he is breaking the law.  Also you said the dog bit you.  I think you should seek further advice on this

RSPCA told me to speak to the police, they said the reason they could not do anything was that I was on its home ground, even though I was at the communal entrance to the building, and it was my fault for getting bitten because I intervened in a 'dog fight', I tried arguing that a rotweiler sneaking up on a tiny little dog hardly constitutes a dog fight, but it got me nowhere. so I still have to put up with it living 3 doors away from me.

re ,that dog biting you ,there is a clause that says about a dog being aggresive ,,now this can be broken down into various forms , starting with a big licking ,,if you get my drift ,the list can go on ,but in there you CAN put it to the police /ouner /whatever ,the animal did ,whatever ,and that was the agressive part being carried out ,to make a case ,more in your favour it was unsupervised ,,want it ..
