Hey fellas,
Quick update, I've been off the fags since the 15th of August, thats 3.5 weeks, I'm still on a low strength nico patch which i will be taking off on Sunday night and will be clean from then on. I've found it easier than expected, I've been out drinking at tourneys in smokin areas and I haven't touched one, a lot of ppl can vouch for this. Anyway theres one person on this thread who's failed to start the last longer and I've been sound by giving this person a second chance to start. You kno who you are and I'm giving you until midnight this Sunday to start upholding your side of this bet otherwise i'm calling it in. Cheers Gl

Off the fags 7 weeks yesterday by my calculation now lads, im pretty pleased with myself and have found it easier than expected. I still get some bad cravings at times but they pass quickly enough, its all about gettin your head in the right place to quit. Unfortunately one person who has demonstrated that it is possible to have a gentleman's bet has come forward to me and conceded losing the last longer. Unlucky sir, i hope u can kick them soon and wish you all the best. I'm lead to believe that teh person having the 1k last longer is off the fags so time will tell but be prepared for a drug test in the coming weeks my friend!

Hey bad news for me good news for those punting vs me, I'm back smoking,dunno how the fuck I let it happen, had a few on a night out last week, got up next day and made a beeline for the shop to buy some, I'm a spastic I know! Got u Knew I shouldnt have punted vs. ciaran, should've listened when he said I was drawing dead, I did last nearly nine months but it never goes away. Some ppl said say nothin just go off them again but a bets a bet and couldn't take money off anyone like that, I'll get in touch with ye about sortin ye out.

first time i went off the fags was 17 years ago and i stayed off them for 2 and half years then went back smoking little by little a cigar here and there . im off them now again since oct1st 2008 and i still crave one every now and then and i say if i tried one i be back smoking again full time . its not easy to do but my health is a lot better than what it was when i smoked so that helps me to stay off them .hope you give it another try because in the long run its better for you not to smoke

You gave them a good sweat!

Why not try out the electronic cigs, if you're going to rely on nicotine, might aswell do away with all the harmful chemicals of smokes, yes it's still a cop out but by far the healthier option, a lesser of two evils so to speak.

Send me a pm if you need any advice on them, so many options these days it's a bit like buying a new PC.

I've been using one over a year now with small stints here and there nicotine free, found it far easier coming off these than quitting the smokes.
