Typical ex-smokers attitude

 

Keep it up all of you trying to give up. Best of luck

 

I wouldn't regard it as "typical ex-smokers attitude". You should not tar everyone with the brush!

Yes, some people do go way over the top but not everybody does.

I am an ex smoker. I gave it up in the space of two minutes after a little chat with my heart consultant in hospital.... from 40 a day to zero.

That cold turkey was delicious.

 

I don't have a problem with other people smoking, in the same room as me, if they wish. I had so many instances of the holier-than-thou attitude of some ex-smokers when I smoked, that I vowed that I would never fall into that trap..... and I never have.

 

I will freely applaud anyone who makes the choice to give up smoking and encourage them in any way that I can. On the other hand, I will never criticize anyone who doesn't succeed. Having tried, unsuccessfully, a number of times before my first heart attack... rather, I will suggest that they try again. It's a habit and I know from experience how hard it is to quit.

 

Well done everybody who has made the decision. Good luck.

If you have failed and succumbed to having a fag..... it's not the end of the world. Just try again....You'll reach your goal eventually.

I'm sorry Rooster perhaps my previous post was wrongly worded but it is the attitude of a lot of ex-smokers. I am a long distance lorry driver and have had several aborted attempts at giving up, I smoke from boredom. I am going to have another attempt now that the new smoking laws have come into being and I can no longer smoke while I am driving.

 

So here goes, I will let you know how I get on.

Hi Michael good luck in your quit! ;)

You are right in that a lot of people do have that attitude but i can

honestly say with hand on heart ive never had this attitude before when ive given up smoking

I think its down to the fact that i know i have given up for the final time, i will never smoke again

I have a bad chest so gave up for three reasons, my health, my grandchild and money

Champix made it easy for me, i hope you do as well as me

I QUESTION THEREFORE I AM!! [sIGPIC][/sIGPIC]

 

Unfortunately i'm not an expert in any given field legally and my advice and that of the Consumer Action Group and the Bank Action Group is given without prejudice and without liability so please if in any doubt whatsoever seek help from an insured qualified professional. Contents of my posts are purely my own personal opinions and not condoned or endorsed in any way, shape or form by CAG. Thank you! :p

  • 3 weeks later...

Hello there, three weeks now and still not smoking. My wife says it is a miracle. I am beginning to notice what you said callumsgran about smokers smelling of ciggies as well.

 

I have given myself a pat on the back.

Well done Michael :D

 

I didn't have any side effects with Champix, apart from a little nausea with the first tablet in the morning. Eating before hand sorted that out.

 

Good luck to everyone who is quiting, it's the best thing you can do for yourself.

I've been on Champix for 2 weeks now, finally gave up the fags on Sunday. I've had the weird dreams, was warned they were a side effect by the nurse at the doctors. I'd tried giving up before, tried patches etc,managed 2 weeks at new year just going cold turkey, before will power gave in and i started again. This time tho, haven't felt the urge to smoke like i did on previous attempts, tho i have been told the pills wont stop me from smoking, thats down to me and my will power, they'll be an aid to my giving up.
