    No probs Alan. I just think I need to have a decent sum of money on it for me to stay off for a year and hopefully for good. I've been in Malta since Nov and more than likely will be here for the next year. My name is Paul Redfern and don't play live much so not many people have met me personally from IPB. I have a boring blog which I update monthly...

    Caf is the other IPB'er I mentioned living over here in Malta and he is a smoker so drinking with him would be a challenge if the bet were to take place!

    So its up to you if you want to put forward an amount your happy with if you want to proceed with the bet, but no probs if you want to keep your bets local/with people you know..

    Also meant to add I did a 500 euro 30 day without alcohol last longer bet with a 2+2'er in June, so if you do need incentive to give up a vice, last longer bets are defo the way to go.. tough going but well worth it
    You seem pretty cool, and thanks for your helpful suggestions, and ive noticed some of your posting. How about we do a 300 one month last longer? U can pick your date to start it.

      Ok folks so far I'm facing a potential payout of 2850 should i go back smoking. I really hope the offers continue, last longers obv better for me, but also at least thats two ppl tryin to kick the most damaging habit you can have. Could actually save some lives here. Smoking related fact for the day: Smoking causes over 90% of lung cancer.

                Nice One Alan,

                Yeah, that would work for me for sure. I can start right now, I havent had any cigarettes today but i have had 2 nicotine lozenges .. I was so close to buying a box of smokes in the shop earlier but somehow resisted.

                Start date 16/08/2011
                End date 16/09/2011

                Conditions - nicotine replacement aids allowed.

                I'll pm you my skype so we can keep each other motivated.

                thanks
                Paul

                                              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!

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.
