I'm new to this, thought I could do with the support. Well I have had numerous attempts at trying to stop smoking - patches,gum etc, none of which seemed to work! But I have got to the stage where I just simply don't enjoy smoking anymore, I am worried about my health, and then of course I could find better things to spend the money on. I did read Alan Carr's How To Stop Smoking. I liked this book, there were no lectures, it just gave me an understanding. I must admit it is worth a read. It didn't stop me smoking however (I only lasted 2 days), but I would say it gives you more determination and will power. So to cut a long story short, I am now trying out Zyban. Today is day one, I have not had a cigarette since 10pm last night. I feel good, during the day it was easy, but coming home that was tough. My partner smokes, so it is right infront of me, trying to tempt me, but I haven't given in and I am determined not to.
