    Struggled to give up the first time as I thought I could continue smoking weed. Soon realised that wasn’t so easy and cigarettes slowly crept back in.

    Jacked them both in 8 years ago.

    I’ve never had the urge to smoke myself but would be interested to know why you did start?

    Same reason as binners really, I was 14 and most of my mates smoked, we thought we looked cool and it was rebellious – we were sticking it to the man.

    When I first started it also used to give me the most amazing headrushes, which I used to enjoy in a strange way.

    Well done to all who have done it and good luck to those who are trying. There will come a time when the penny drops so stick with it.
    And if you still enjoy. Good luck to you.

    1 year in 4 days! Wahoo.

    Havnt saved a penny as I have spent it all on bike stuff. Oh yeah!

    Good luck to anyone giving up at the mo, keep battling through it!

    Been mostly stopped for 2 years now. I used to really enjoy smoking, as hard as that may be to understand. However I got up to 20 a day for a number of years and knew it was a pretty uncool thing to do.

    Think over that time I have smoked on average 1 weekend every two months or so, usually coincides with a weekend away sailing, camping or on holiday etc.

    Feeling a lot healthier and good not to be dependent on always having tobacco on me.

    But I still allow myself a “Dirty Weekend” every couple of months. Strangely I find this remarkably easy and rarely think about fags.

    Until threads like this come up…

    It’s when you consider reporting your debit card lost and getting ’emergency cash’ out of your NatWest account just so you can buy some fags – because you left your wallet at work overnight – that you realise it’s all got a bit silly.

    Hopefully, anyway.

    Not had a snout since new year. On the electric ones now though, so kind of cheating really.

    Looking back, I probably didn’t enjoy the vast majority of smokes I had, but every so often, the ones with a beer in a sunny garden were awesome. Unfortunately its not so easy to pick and choose the ones to have.

    Well done everyone who’s quit successfully and keep going those who are going through it now.

    I smoke about 2-3 cigs.

    Every 40 years. I think half of those weren’t even inhaled!

    I’ve never had the urge to smoke myself but would be interested to know why you did start?

    Mostly because when I was a teenager everyone told me not to. And death or illness seemed so irrelevant and far away.

    When I first started it also used to give me the most amazing headrushes

    That too. And by the time they wore off I honestly enjoyed it. Or thought I did, I’m not sure anymore.

    I quit being a full time smoker a year and half ago. Since then I only smoked when I was drinking. I have now though quit drinking for a year so that should put a final stop to the smoking too.

    It were 10 pence a smoke when I was a lad in the 80’s 😉

    I still miss the head rush though…
