no more cigs

am now at day three of being smoke free. a touch irratable, but otherwise doing quite well. and am saving the money i used to spend in a seperate account. at the end of the year, i can consider a trip to the uk, 17's for the xr (which arrives on tuesday...and i am paying by visa...they will sh#t when i pull the card out, but i need the frequent flyer points).

anyway, i am rambling. looking forward to spending some extra $$$ on myself, instead of supporting a filthy, dirty, smelly, expensive (but i did enjoy it) habit.

for all those currently smoking...go get zyban. they help a lot.

I've stopped smoking about 8 1/2 months ago and went through cold was hell!! and I was giving everyone around me a hard time as well.

Long way to go! but rewarding if you succeed I saved $300 a month from quitting.

I have only ever quite once for three months and then started again. I want to quite too! But it's not easy. Good luck.

I quit 18months ago as a 25 a day man. Did the first day cold turkey and nearly killed my boss.

I used the Nicobate patches, worked really well, haven't looked back.

Your all crazy!!!

I have actually increased my smoke intake.

Look at it this way, without my taxes on smokes, who else is going to pay for the public hospital system.

Also, just a minor factor, im addicted!!!

Here, here

If there are no smokers, there will have to be more speed cameras i guess.

I quit once though, cold turkey, lasted 2 months, was the worst 2 months of my life.

Do I really have to write something funny in here?

Way to go

Good on ya rsgerry.
I've been free for a year now and the missus going well also, she does stumble sometimes though. I used the money to buy my first Ford, '98 EL XR8, so it was more than worth it. Good luck.

Good for You Rsgerry,

I gave up 14 months ago and I'm glad I did! My Wife and I were spending around $140 a week with the both of us smoking. It was like giving myself a $7000 a year pay rise.

Good on ya!
Me too about 6mths ago nearly 15yrs worth. That Zyban is good long as you are reasonalby healthy...get a check up first dont let the doctor just prescribe it without(remember the people in the newspapers...)
It reeks havoc when youre a shift worker, personaly I had trouble when I stopped Zyban with insomia(HUS)only for a week or 2, a VERY small price to pay.
When I first stoped I started riding the treadly and jogging around a footy oval 1 lap was all I could manage(after a 10km ride!).
Now Im at gym and can run 2 laps(not jog)after a 15-20k ride!
Maybe I should take up bike sprint racing again...30yr + class

Takin it to 7 turnin it to 11
