No Smoking Day

Quitting's cost me a fortune!!!!

Been eating loads of sweets in the first 2 weeks of quitting and broke a tooth (wisdom) last week on a hard boiled sweet :(

Saw the dentist on monday whom made a further appointment for today at her other practise as she didn't have the machine she needed there (didn't quite catch or care what she said really as just needed it sorting).

Went today for a filling (or so i thought ), the bill was £324:eek:

Seems she told me on monday that she'd do a "4 Surface Porcelain Inlay" ........... being a typical man it went in one ear and came out the other.

Next time i'll listen and if it's anything other than a filling then it's coming out !!!

Absolutely gutted as that's 3 months of quitting money i've spent before i've actually earned it!!!

:(

I was so annoyed with myself that i thought about having a ciggie........ for a split second ;)

But in all seriousness, are you not a member of an NHS Dentist?

I went yesterday and had to make an appointment for a filling that is costing me £6.

No i'm not Jill. Tried many times and failed to get one :(

I pay £10 a month to cover twice yearly examinations, scale & polish etc BUT obviously didn't reckon on something like this. It's my own fault as if i'd taken notice of what she'd said i probably would have questioned it, asked the price and then said no thanks.

Ce la vie :rolleyes:

If I chose my career wisely I would have been a dentist, they charge a fortune

Hey Pete, business opportunity there? :)

That's a lot of money :eek: I would have told them to take the thing out, I mean we don't need wisom teeth do we, after all we don't get them till adulthood then they cause all sorts of problems.

Fruit pastels or jelly based sweets for you from now on :)

I want to know who your dentist is!! We have an NHS dentist, but a check - up alone still costs us £45 - thats with no treatment!

Back onto the thread.... bad luck on tooth, but did the toothache stop the cravings for a while? Maybe we should all smash our teeth as a way to beat the cravings?!?
