it has been hard at times ...but its going to be worth it i feel..i took it an hour at a time,then a day at a time. im still not convinced that i can do it ..so when someone offers my a dreaded fag i just say nah ill have one when i get home..by the time i do get home i have changed my mind..i have noticed that people who do smoke are a bit smelly ,so that makes me want to carry on. also i went to the shop for ten cigs for someone the other day and they cost £5.50 that's bad. im using normal chewing gum and it does help with the craving and it keeps me off the sweeties. good luck people.
