Man I can't even imagine trying to get off cigarettes that must have been torture congratulations. I still need my nicotine fix and how dumb I'm I, I forgot to say congratulations to @EclipseRedRing for kicking the habit.Awesome PIF and although I'm in the UK, respectfully not in.
Congratulations to everyone who has posted about overcoming their addiction - it's tough although I can't imagine what @Dave himself went through.
I managed to finally stop smoking nearly 18 years ago - I was a heavy smoker and had smoked for something approaching 20 years. I tried a few times and failed - cold turkey, patches, hypnotherapy - nothing worked. Eventually it took 2 years of NRT to get me off. I haven't touched anything since and I know I'm a lot better for it.
Thanks to @EclipseRedRing for such a generous PIF and happy anniversary on the 26th!
