    That's great!
    I have never smoked myself, only because I spent alot of time with my grandparents when younger and they smoked like troopers! Put me off thankfully!
    Think of the money you will save to put towards new clothes!!!
    Good luck! x

    Well done, I gave up just over two years ago when I was trying for a baby. It is hard but I found will power was the best way and everyday gets easier. Keep it up, you can do it !

    Wow that's great good luck! I gave up 15 months ago, I found the gum a godsend, you can buy it in say petrol station where you would go for cigs and you only need take it when cravings are really bad. I'd not use it for a week but then just use it when I thought I was about to cave as it kills the cravings. Just a thought :)

    Good luck again!!

    I went cold turkey and am off them 4 months (nearly 5!) now, I don't miss it, I hate getting stuck walking behind someone smoking and can't believe I ever wasted so much time and money! I found that when I stopped I would just take it one at a time, like ok, won't have the morning one, but I can have the mid-morning, then at mid-morning I'd skip it, but promise myself I could have the lunch one (or two or three..) and then at each cigarette time I weighed up whether or not I wanted it, given that I'd already skipped a whole bunch of them already, then it turned into days, like I didn't have one for all of yesterday, do I really want to ruin that now etc... I think if you have the willpower for a VLCD then you're well able to kick smoking's smelly ass!!!
