No Smoking Day

I'm not a heavy smoker, i've been smoking about 10 a day for the past year, maybe 20+ at weekends. I tried to give up before after i got bronchitus, i lasted about 2 weeks but then i relapsed. I'm giving it another go from now on but what i would really like to see is the end to the horible cough?

Does anyone have any ideas how long it will take for the cough to leave me after i stop smoking?

The cough is a very productive one after quitting, churning out the layer that's built up with the cigs'.

How long it lasts is very different from one person to the next. I would imagine this is depending on the amount of stuff in there and how productive the cough actually is.

It's worth it though huh?

Well Done on quitting x x x x


Yeah i'm on day 4 almost now and i'm feeling better already. The cough is much less painful than it was and more productive. i just want to get rid of it soon rather than later. Also, has anybody ever tried snuff. I know it's bad as its tobbaco but someone got me a tin before and whenever i'm getting in a really difficult patch i have a small ammoun, say 2-3 sniffs a day. Has anyone else found that this works for them?


Ooooh havn't heard of someone taking snuff since i was a little girl! didn't know people still did!

I wouldn't use it as a method for quitting as I think it will be another hurdle to quit Snuff, can't be at all good for your nasal passage or cough!!

Glad the cough is easing up for you

and consider dumping the Snuff?
