With the price of ciggies in the UK now at £5.75, I have realised that if I smoke 20 a day for the next 5 years, I will spend £10,493 !!!!!!!!

 

Any advice on the best way to stop? Lozenges, chewing gum, hang myself?

 

(What will I be like on TC while I am quitting? ) {#lang_emotions_ninja}

You may want to try my way - get somebody to knock you up By the second month I wasn´t smoking. But then, if it´s only about saving money it doesn´t seem the right way

Saving money has given me more incentive than anything else ever has in this current climate!!!  I don´t think having a baby is a good idea though right now and I fear it would cost me more than smoking

I gave up just over a year ago. I read that alan carr book and weirdly never smoked again. I struggled for years to quit then I just stopped no patches or substitutes

 My husband (2 pack a day smoker) was able to quit relatively easily with the prescription drug Chantix.  He was on it for only 6 weeks and quit completely.  That was almost one year ago.  Because the drug blocks certain nicotine receptors, but prepared for strange dreams or a few sleepless nights.  Other than that, there were little side effects.  You just need to talk to a doctor about it. 

 

I quit DD´s way.....12 years ago when I was pregnant.....both ways are highly successful ways to quit.  Good luck!!

Patches are OK

 

but don´t try chewing gums, it´s a procedure to take them!!

 

There are also, at least in my country, herbal ciggies to help you stop smoking, but they´re 4 times more expencive than normal cigarettes hahaha

 

You can also try hypnosis lol
