im 18 and quit in jan 08 for 3months, and the first time on the scales i started again i put on weight, now my breathin has gone bad and each week i get paid im skint, im quittin on sunday 4 my health and plus 2 save £££ :)

i used patches and i felt great didnt have craveings, i felt reli proud as my bf smokes 2 and my parents and when i had a wiff of their smoke i new i didnt wna go back but unfortunally i did:mad:

since i started again i noticed my skin esp my face was oil`y and my hair was gettin greasy fast again.. i only have 2 walk up 5 stairs and im gaspin 4 breath.. lol.. when i last quit i replased fags with food which was a big mistake, now i have 2 days till my quit day and im prepared with what 2 eat, im goin 2 get a stress ball so if i want a fag ill squish it and say " no deb no" lol, i feli soo bad when i had that fag after 3 months of goin smoke free, my throte hurt so much for a few days everytime i took a pull.. but this time im determined 2 quit for good (or more then 3 months:D)

any help will be gladly

Don't be too hard on yourself, it's a matter of picking yourself up, brushing yourself down and getting back on that bloody horse! Set the new quit date and go for it.

I loved all the extra money too. I haven't saved it in a jar but I get more treats now than before. Funny how you can always find £150 a month for cigs lol (that's what I spent - ugh)

Good for you Stinky :)
