    Well done indeed! As a non-smoker I find it very hard to understand why this could be difficult but I have seen people try to give up in the past. Six months is a good milestone I think - extremely well done to get so far!

    I've done that a few times too. Longest I've managed previously was 3 weeks (When I was 14:oops: ). 15 years later, I tried accupunture and it seems to have done the trick. I can thorougly reccommend it to anyone who's trying to quit.

    Well done.

    After two and a half years I still get the odd craving every now and then.

    Keep up the good work.

    Thought I'd ressurect this old thread since I'm now an ex-smoker (or a non-smoker :rolleyes: ) and have been for just over 4 weeks.

    Hows everyone else doing?

    I found the best way was just plain old Cold Turkey and chewing gum whilst on holiday. Coming back home was the hardest part and the first few days back at work were sheer hell but it gets easier day by day.

    Keep going, Steve. It never goes away completely but it does get easier. I've been stopped nearly 11 months now. How's Timbone and Ju33les getting on, they quit about the same time I think?

    It'll be 12 months for me in November. Sometimes it's still ****** hard to say no, so I've taken up alcohol instead ;)
