just adding support, fag free for coming up to 11 years after 10 years of heavy smoking so it can be done. (those figures make me feel soooo old!!!)

I gave up 2 years ago and (despite the odd lapse) am still fag free.

Bloody well done so far!

Just lending some support and applause for you

i tried to give up several times but always cracked thinking 'just one won't hurt...' once i got it into my head that i couldn't have even 'just one' it worked. that and ttc, lol!

I think a good way to think is that it is like being an alcoholic. I am a smoker who at the moment doesn't smoke. But I will always be a smoker.

Well done www.whyquit.com for mental ammunition!
