    Holy smokes...and I thought cigarettes were expensive over here

    (I've been smoking for 14 years now...and while the thought of quitting has crossed my mind, even more so recently after basically almost everybody around me quit and the prices increased yet again, but I didn't get my head around to it yet...and the only way for me to quit would be to go cold turkey, too...hmm...maybe I can use your example as inspiration...we'll see)

    But back to the real topic: Congrats and keep it up! Your health and wallet are thanking you for sure!!!

    The price hikes certainly helped me to consider stopping but it is definitely the mindset that YOU WANT to quit.

    Go for it Ingo, the first few days are hard - day 3 is very hard but I assure you that it gets easier after about a week.

    I feel tons better for giving up (prepare yourself for a bit of weight gain though!)

    Was just thinking about you the other day when I talked to one of my friends about smoking / giving up.

    Keep it going!

    Seeing as this thread was referenced recently I figure an update is in order!

    Well so far I have been smoke free for 290 days or 9 months, 15 days including today!

    So I can now call myself a non-smoker
    I have also save around 1600 and feel a whole lot better.

    So there we have it, I QUIT!

    That's quite an achievement, I can't believe you used to spend that much on smoking, outrageous!

    Congrats

    Well Done!

    Now all you need to do is decide how you want to spend your extra years and extra money.

    The NHS should market quitting as one of the "credit crunch busting" techniques that irritatingly keep cropping up all over the place. I bet there are enough people out there who'd stop for that reason alone.
