4 weeks motivation

This is a post for all the people thinking about quitting, or in the very early stages of a quit.

The first three days are tough - very tough.

The first ten days are not pleasant.

But within 2 weeks of being free of nicotine you will be so comfortable in your quits you will be kicking yourself for not doing it sooner. No cravings.

And you WILL notice the money - say you spend £7.50 a day to feed your habit - that's well over £250,000 for the next 40 years of your habit - assuming inflation is only 2% and tobacco continues to rise at 2% above inflation - & they are both very conservative estimates.

£250,000 of taxed money!! It's pretty easy to make a craving go away when you realise what that ONE PUFF would cost you....
