8 weeks


I do not believe that I have got to 8 weeks. With all my other "so called" quits I have barely got past 24 hours.

There have been many things this year that have happened to make me "quit for good" so feel that this is my time and it is going to be good.

Thanks for the support received on the forum and I would say that although I haven't posted much I have learnt alot from reading, reading, reading. Even though I am on Champix, I have read Allen Carr's book 3 or 4 times during my quit and it has helped me enormously.

Good things to come out of my quit are being able to go out and so******e without the worry of "when can I smoke" and "where do I smoke". These have lead me to virtually become a recluse since the smoking ban and quite frankly I have had enough. Hence, a couple of weeks ago I went to see Nickelback, am going to see Queen on Wednesday, have been out for several nights out for drinks and meals and ..................have got tickets to see Take That!!!!!!!!!!!!

Best wishes to everyone on their quit.

Well done Tracy on 8 weeks
