Kudos to all those trying to quit or those who have done... I'm sure it must be really difficult! What I don't understand, apart from the obvious health side effects, is why people want to stop completely... I used to smoke about 30-40 a day since I was 15 (appauling I know). But within the last 6 months I have cut down to 1 or sometimes 2 a day. This wasn't difficult and I still get to chill out in the bath or on the sofa with a fag and it feels good, but I don't feel the need to have any more! Surely if you are on a diet (which I assume most on this forum are) then it must make things seem so much more difficult denying yourself cigarettes as well as your favorite foods? torture! I don't know the ins and outs of the damage that smoking causes so excuse my ignorance but 1 a day can't really be that bad, my great granny smoked all her life and lived till she was 96! Reckon it might be a bit of a conspiricy or at least over-dramatised?
