  • The women version has recipes in the back on how to cook smoked bacon and kippers.

    oh we have a comedian in the house!!!

    If you're referring to "Scandal" by mr carr it's actually about the scandal of NRT and the fact that he's been dissed by the NHS.

    If it's the John Profumo affair please accept my apologies...

    Still a good read though.

    You have to admit he knew a gravy train when he saw one.... :D

    Phil have you been reading Allan Carr's "Easyway to stay single" again? :D

  • well what a constructive conversation this has been

    perhaps i ought to read "good retorts to sexist mens comments" instead

    More like how to lose friends and alienate people :p

  • My friends are very happy with me I'm a realist I call a spade a spade and they know I have a sense of humour I guess that could be one of the reasons I'm not finding this quit as difficult as I thought it would be.I don't let little things get to me stress seems to be the main reason people start smoking again.

    Me too, i'm forever upsetting snivelling spineless wimps in work and indeed everywhere else.... a spade is a spade in my book.

    Look at my sig too.

    well i hope your referring to a garden spade and not something else!!! thanks for your words but i wasnt implying you were stressing over little things. i was implying your comments are sexist and uncalled for

  • Really not sure who is being serious and who is joking here :p

    So I shall ignore all of it and answer the original post... guaranteed safety that way :D

    A little light reading can't go amiss and the Allan Carr book's - even if they don't speak to you and flip the switch in your head that make you say "Of course, how could I not realise it before" in a forehead slapping manner, are still a great read and full of useful stuff.

    Best wishes for tomorrow.

  • im being serious. i find it offensive to have to read sexist/racist jokes when i joined up for support.

    from some of the things iv read towards others and now me, i wonder why i bothered

    nevertheless, thanks for your best wishes stuart

  • People show up and get offended regularly here. If it bugged me that much I would hit the X in the corner, you haven't paid for any 'support' and it doesn't have a 100% quit success rate guarantee so let's not get things out of proportion here.

  • Good luck for tomorrow.

    Although you sound as though the champix combined with your resolve will do the job just fine.

    As you have already seen on other threads you will get plenty of support from people on here but like any mis-matched bunch on the internet there will be people that you just don't get along with.

    If you find any of us irksome then just add us to your ignore list in the User CP settings then you need never read any post we make.

    All the best,

    Nic

  • Do you have another user name on this site you sound very familiar.By the way you don't have to read anything its your choice if you read it or not.

    no i do not!! why are u all getting the arse with me when U offended ME?? your rude to me then pretty much tell me if i dont like it i should just go?

    nice!!

  • I think that some members are getting a little over sensitive over posts that may not have been meant the way they have come across and this has lead to other members posting back with comments that are not very constructive

    Please let's leave this now and get on with the important matter of quitting

    Many thanks
