cheers Cin. The way I felt during the run and in my chest was a lot worse than any withdrawal. I will do it

Good for you Hoosie.  My mum is kicking the habit, she was very poorly at the end of last year and was told she must give up this time.

(( Cin)) -sorry to hear about your mum-wish her luck from me. I am finding this book useful and you can download it free and print it for her (unless she is good on the net)

Lol, no she's a bit anti technology so will download it for her thanks

I am near the end of treatment of Radio Therapy for Throat Cancer No better incentive to give up i can tell you. Hav;nt touched one for four months.

You  are right Davy. I have early COPD.

Hope your treatment is successful. The dangers I guess were made very real to you.

stay well

Well done Hoose  ....again.

11 years for me this year and Im soooo smug about it

You can do it this time find someone to give up with so you will let them down if you go back, guilt is a strong motivator.

Good Luck

JFDI Hoose or I'll come round and break your smoking fingers ?
11/01/2009 at 14:25

What is COPD?

Doesn't matter how many times you start giving up, you'll get there in the end! Mum has tried many times but this time its right for her!

Hoose good luck

davy Tree- i'm sorry to hear that - i hope you be ok

i have'nt smoked in oohh 30 odd years -

i don't smoke, drink or gamble - boring maybe - but when me and brothers were young - it crippled our young life with mums and dads habits

I did it by listening to The Easy Way to Stop Smoking audiobook by Allen Carr. I didn't even want to quit I only tried it out of interest but I soon realised that it was going to work just from the first chapters. My brain has been rewired back to the days when I saw smoking as a horrific thing and I used to throw my mothers fags down the toilet. This book really works if you want to quit.

A friend of mine's given up (this year). Tried lots of times before. I'll give him a month before he's back on them again..

I really don't understand why ppl give in and re-start when they say they're giving up - JFDI.

Ultimately it's weakness.

thanks for the support folks. I know i have stopped and started countless times-it is a dreadful addiction.

Adam- Allen Carr clinic stopped me for 3 months-have to audio book somewhere-cheers.

Siance-thans ut not sure if it is weakness or what. I will not beat myself up as eing weak if I fail-gets you depressed and smoking more in my experience.

COPD Cinders is Chronic Obstructive   summat disease. It is catchall term to describe damage to lungs through emphysema and and other stuff. Medics here will put it better than me.
