Hi Adonia :) ..Thanks!
Sorry to hear you didn't find your little puddy cat yet :( . I'll be keeping my fingers crossed that she shows up soon.

Your chest doesn't sound good at all, I do hope you find the courage to give it another go...

I'm doing it cold turkey, I tried everything in the past but nothing worked for me.
The Chimpax, doesn't appeal to me at all(the side effects are too much)!! But I have heard from lots that think it's brilliant....I took your tip and went for the mints so I'm sucking on extra strong mints most of the time...I think they help cause I wouldn't dream of having a ciggy with a mint!


Take Care and I hope you join in soon :)

Hi Adonia :D ...Yes, indeed I do think your mints help me, for the following reasons. 1) Whilst sucking a mint the thought of smoke is not very appealing 2) I always have a mint ready to pop in my mouth straight after a meal so I avoid the craving entirely 3) I also believe the mints are aiding my digestion, in the past when I've tried to stop it was as thought my digestion stopped also...but now this time everthing seems to be moving on through me a normal.
I've been using those extra strong mints, since my local Netto is doing a deal on them at the moment, 5 packs for 99p!

Any word of Fluffy yet?

Tripz
don't worry if you can not stop smoking :wink:
I love to puff a Monte Cristo cicar once in a while but unfortunately my lungs are not up to it yet.
So when they are I will have a cicar. Life is to short to have hang ups and I must die from something
someday so I might as well enjoy it while I can. Long live the smokers they are a dying breed :mrgreen:
Love to all

Tripz, sorry you have had a relapse. Hope you are ok and not too down about it.
Mr Snowleopard is trying to quit yet again as he has terrible breathing. He is trying to cut down now his regime is as follows:- Gets up has 1 cigarette.
Puts a 15mg patch on
After teatime takes patch off, has a cigarette
Supper time and then 1 cigarette.

So by doing this he is helping his lungs by significantly reducing his intake. He is covered from cravings by having the patch on he also is comforting himself by keeping his smoking action going with the 3 cigarettes.

His next step is to get a nicotine inhalator from the nurse at the stopping smoking clinic so that this should replace those odd cigarettes he has. It doesn't matter if he keeps on with the nicotine replacement products because they are not the harmful thing. The main thing is to protect his lungs and arteries from any further damage.

I hope you don't mind me sharing this with you as I thought it may give you a few options to chew over. Nobody wants to have to give up if they enjoy smoking, it's the smoking that makes you have to give up in the end.

Oh Dear nurgis,i wish i could just be disciplined enough to have the 'occasional' cigar.I went to a wedding a couple of weeks ago and as is the tradition the cigars were going around but i couldnt dare have one as i new it would start me off again.
I like smoking it helps to relax and destress,you cant beat a nice roll up with a pint,but i then look at people suffering with lung desease and especially when it is a 'lingering' and uncomfortable death.

Day 119 for me now and i know i keep saying it but it gives me incentive when i know i've got an extra £476 squid in the bank.And i am keeping it in cash in a secret place and every now and then i go and count it and take a deep 'healthy lung' full of air and think of something nice i am going to spend it on.
I make it £1460 per year and that will pay for some sort of holiday.

All those trying to give up just keep thinking of all the advantages and hope you all get through.
Best wishes. Lioned

Dear Lioned sure this is a serious matter and my lungs could not handle any smoke at the moment not even a scented candle burning without getting me coughing :roll:
I am very proud of you that you have reached day 119 and all that money in the kitty :bounce: I wish you all the best.

Mrs. Snowleopard I am so sorry to hear of Mr. Snowleopard. Thank you for sharing and you are right of course, that it is the smoking that makes you give up in the end.

I hope I have not offended anyone talking so lighthearted about smoking, it was not my intentions :roll:

Thank you nurgis you are very kind.It took me a long time to accept that smoking is bad for you,I think i can honestly say that my decision to give up was equally based on the health issues and the cost and after 119 days i feel richer both health wise and in my pocket so it has worked both ways.
