Default Give up or Cut down ?

I started smoking a few months after I arrived in Dubai, about 18 months ago, that after having given up for 15 years....stupid, I know

However, I have decided to knock it on the head again from this weekend onwards

So what was the last thing you gave up or was told (or decided to) to cut down on ?

ah, you see, now there's a bit of information you forgot to mention, BangleMan. it's not that you're trying to quit, it's that you're trying not to smoke packets of mints

(i once had someone say to me that riding a motorcycle was kind of like smoking methols... you'd like to share/offer a lift, but not one will take you up on it...)

If we have to explain, you won't understand.

I gave up for 2 years, cold turkey, just picked a date and did it. Put on loads of weight.

2008 was not such a good year for me and i started smoking again in April, still on them, not lost any bloody weight, so that myth that smoking reduces your appetite is so over for me

Funnily enough i have picked this coming Saturday to stop again, got the nicotine chewing gum and the inhaler thingy to help.

Lol i will be like an anti christ all next week

I gave up for three years after reading The Easy Way by Alln Carr, started again when I came over here so need to find another copy.
