Good Luck. Put the money in a piggy bank and if you have doubts after a month, count it and pick a holiday destination!

cheers. know what you mean, taste smell etc already noticing it.

looking at the nhs info; after 24 hrs carbon monoxide leaves body, lungs start to clear mucus. 48 hours nicotine free, improved sense of taste and smell. 2-12 weeks circulation improved. 3-9 months lung capacity improved no coughing weezing etc. 5 years half the chance of heart attack compared to a smoker. 10 years chance of lung cancer half that of a smoker, chance of heart attack now same as someone whos never smoked.

Hi ford stick to the beer not as fattening as the food also try to keep hands busy to keep your mind off the fags.

 

All the best with this and the new year.

hope so. cause it has been, and still is sometimes, tough (and have had a couple of cigars since stop, but not since last time). an e-lite might have to be an option if can't resist a craving! :)

cheers dpick for support. (as an added incentive for myself, will post up every 4 weeks ish for awhile!)
