I have tried a few time over the years to give up but unfortunately the problem with my wife smoking allay made me go back to it, even after months without a cigarette I would start again (only maybe 10 to 15 a day) then on day my wife announced she was giving up.
after a couple of weeks I felt she meant it and so I also stopped and it is now over two years and I cant see me going back now so I do feel I have quit.
You have to be ready and to have the support of your partner in the giving up otherwise you need an awful lot of willpower as well as being ready to kick the habit.
Whatever way you do it matters no as my wife has these electronic cigarettes and they have helped her.
Me, I think I must have been ready as I have had no false cigarettes or the incentives from the no smoking pack you get from the government or where ever they come from.
If you are trying to give up be aware it is always with you, even now there are times when I have wanted one but it goes quicker each time over the years (as I have been told)
If you are thinking about giving up then try your hardest to keep thinking of the down sides of smoking, the smell on you your clothes and your house. and the biggest one the COST.
if you give up put away the money you spent on tobacco products and have a nice holiday every year. (do not be tempted to smoke when on holiday as that will kick it off again)
I hope you can get something from this ex smoker who is still suffering with the effects of smoking as you most likely will unless you are very lucky.
We always joked that if my wife won the lottery it would be ideal as she could buy herself an iron lung.
Take great care and kindest regards
