I read allen carr book, stopped straight away afterwards. I wanted to though, and in like three days i felt noticably better. In a month having washed everything i owned nothing smelt of smoke. and let mew tell you, once you give up smoking you smell it ewverywhere, i can smell smokers from 100yds away. Every now and again I want a fag but the feeling passes quickly, like its a brief thought "ooh i'd love a fag" and then i totally forget i thought it. Plus i yawn so much less, its weird. Anyway you want to run you gotta quit, can't do both, that would be pointless. Good luck
Hi, Brentwood is going to be my first half-marathon, am really nervous. Not sure where brentwood is yet! I gave up smoking cold turkey at the beginning of october (pack a day for a decade, give or take) and started going for jogs. Started training seriously on the 24th of Jan and have since clocked 85 miles in training (i made a spreadsheet, dead sad i know). I have entered a couple of other races post brentwood because i am desperate for some reason to crack 2 hours! Good luck if your running for the first time too.
