  • I stopped in June 2006 so if I add up how much I used to buy (which actually wasn't that much) I've saved about £70. Whoopi!!

  • OK, I'm ready! Going to see the stop smoking lady tomorrow and beg for some help, I've failed many times before so I'm after the Zyban this time. Friend went to her last week and apparently she has to refer you to a doctor and the doc will only prescribe if she has referred, otherwise he sends you there first! Very confusing but hopefully I'm going the fastest way about it. She will refer me to doc, he will prescribe, then I'll see her once a week throughout the 3 month course........got good incentive in a new puppy coming mid-November so I'm going to have to get fit and healthy to run around with him! By the way, anyone who's thinking of stopping around now feel free to drop me a pm......I'm going to pack in alongside my friend but the more the merrier!:beer:

  • I stopped 11 months ago after trying for the previous 2 years albeit very half heartedly. I tried the gum and it helped but half the battle is getting your mind round not smoking at certain times, in certain places, when you crack that you are there. However, i am still tempted when at the pub with mates. I now have a 5 month old daughter and do not fancy letting her grow up and watch me slowly kill myself. Good luck all, you can do it.
