First of all, let me congratulate you on this forum.
It's a great idea, and from personal experience (as all of you well know), support and encouragement are the extra "ingredients" that make the difference.
I started smoking shortly after I went to college (lots of time in pubs, you know the story), 10 years ago.
I was at the time a heavy smoker (if I went clubbing, 3 packs in a day was common thing), but now, I don't even "enjoy it".
I hate the taste of it, it makes my mouth dry and taste horribly and I also feel very tired (it's a circular thing, I don't exercise because I'm in bad shape for smoking and I'm bad shape because I don't exercise).
I mainly use cigarettes nowadays to "focus". I often have a "thinking fag" break.
But, well, I decided this thing is not going to control my life, and it's basically a stupid routine at best.
This is going to be (hopefully!) my last smelly, coughing, eyes-burning, yellow fingered weekend and Monday I'm going smoke-free.
I also hope that in some months I may be in the position to help anyone posting in this forum for the first time!
