Good luck mate :agree1:

My Dad gave up when it started to affect his health and he realised he is just too fking tight to waste money on something that was going to kill him, he went cold turkey and he hasn't smoked a tab for a good 6 years now. If my Dad can do it you can do it!

P.S. me Dad must be single handedly keeping the Extra Strong Mint company in business, hope you find a nice healthy vice to keep you going or the garage chocolate sales profits are gonna be soaring :mrgreen:

All the best with this Craig :agree1:

Lived with my Dad whilst he was giving up and I thought he would struggle but he did really well. Having other treats to ease the pain helped, booze and wine gums were his favourite! I scoffed his packet one evening and he almost throttled me :lol:

Good luck with that. Mrs Sligo says Allen Carrs easy way to Stop smoking helped her (he makes me laugh on his chatty man show).

Another buddy uses electronic cigarettes. Makes his own potion. I think he gets a nicotine fix without the chemicals /tar. After 3 months use he tried a real cig again and said it was disgusting so he's not going back.

2k a year is 5.50 a day so I presume that's around the price of a pack of 20.

Over here they are going up tonight to of 20 to €10.

When you put it that way it adds up. How on earth do people on benefits afford it? I quite often see people whom I know are claiming buying packets and alcohol.

Beggers belief.

Saves money on matches using vodka to light your cigarette.

Good luck Craig :chant:

I dont envy smokers who want to give them up. Glad I never took em up myself. Dodged a bullet there, figuratively and literally.

Any consideration given to those vaporiser yolks? They seem to be getting super popular. But in a way you are only transferring your addiction to a slightly cheaper (i presume) but hopefully not so unhealthy habit

18mg/ml. Yes, lots of benefits. I've been flying a lot over the last few months so very handy. :cool2:

Why not try dropping down through the strengths? Then stop altogether... :medic:

Tried dropping back a couple of years ago but found the zero or low nic stuff vaped a bit differently. Not convinced it's the nicotine that I need nowadays as I can go without for long periods... but the juice seems to have a bit more kick with nic in it.

Does this just not mean that people are now addicted to e-cigarettes

Surely the right thing to do is just quit :what:
