Awesome Job well done you, Keep up the good work :)


Wow - you are on your 2nd week already. It really will start to get easier and easier, I bet it's great to see how much money is building up.

But you are right, it isn't just the money - there is so many more benefits to quitting smoking. The best of all is being in control!

Keep it up - stick with it!


thankyou both of you..yes does feel good seeing the money grow too aswell as knowing my health will be better,,ive not worn patches for 2 days ,not sure if they were helping or not but dont feel any different without them,, but cant do without my inhalotor thingy,,dont think id have managed to last without a ciggi if i didnt have it,,ive named it my givup,,lol ill prob be addicted to that forever now,,but at least its cheaper and healthier :)

watched my mum die aged 52 when i was only 19 all through smoking so now im getting older i dont want my daughter/grandaughter to watch the same happen to me,,
