Hi. Iâ€™m new to this forum, but a mate at work swears by it and seems to spend half their life on here! I havenâ€™t touched a cigarette for two months now which is a personal best (alright I have touched one, but I didnâ€™t smoke it which is progress!). I was never too heavy, only about ten a day but felt I had to try and stop this time for the kids. Basically for me Iâ€™m someone who just fidgets when Iâ€™m bored, Iâ€™m always doing something with my hands and picking up things. The first few days without a cigarette was really killing me as Iâ€™m so used to having one between my fingers, so my husband recommended I do anything to try and change the habit, such as playing on the kids video games. Not being one for the modern games (give me Tetris any day!) had a look on the net and found this wicked games site called pogo.co.uk The games are really fun (and definitely mum proof) and the kids canâ€™t believe that Iâ€™m even outscoring them now! Best of all, thereâ€™s a brilliant chat forum to talk to other players, a great chance to talk to other people who you know you need never actually meet.
Theyâ€™ve just launched an anti-smoking campaign, giving people the chance to talk about quitting. Well worth checking out.
