In a fog

I wish it was just fog.
I stopped in April of last year, going from 30 a day to none and not looking back. Yes, I have put on weight but I'm in the process of dealing with that - and even with the extra weight I haven't felt better in a long, long time. It ain't easy and no one can tell you when it's time to stop, only you, but it will happen and once you make that decision...

@graemestevens well done! I gave up about 20 years ago but hubby is still well and truly hooked. He now has breathing issues (copd they call it these days) but like you say, no-one else can make you stop. It has to be your decision. I just wish he'd bloody hurry up though before it's too late.. If its not already.

@graemestevens did you use anything to help stop or did you go cold turkey? I was not a heavy smoker so it was much easier for me to stop.

@katrinanz In the past I tried Xylan, Champix, hypnotism, cold turkey, patches and gum as well as a book called "The Easy Way to Stop Smoking" - while that book worked for Mrs S I read it 8 times to no avail. In the end it was a another stint on the Champix and putting up with the side effects (incredible nightmares, nausea, headaches, sleeplessness) that made it happen - not I can't even smell the things without feeling nauseous

@graemestevens yeah he's got something similar to champix but I don't know if he can handle the side effects yet. He has anxiety issues as it is. At least now he smokes outside (as of last week). Small steps..

@katrinanz We never smoked inside...even in the UK, in the middle of the winter, snow and all, out I'd go for my fix...
