    Work keeps me doing a rather good impression of an old motor with expired piston rings but I've been trying to quit (one type at a time tho!), and I've got all the more incentive nowadays...

    Regards,

    Rob.

    Gave up 20 years ago - never regretted it for a minute. Hate the smell of it now, on people you speak to, in pubs, on your clothes etc. (down South or abroad, of course). Smoking ban up here is the best thing (some would say the only thing) the glorified local council in Edinburgh has ever done - you can go to a pub or restaurant and actually enjoy it (once you've dodged passed all the puffers huddling in the doorway keeping warm, of course).

    No probs, I know exactly what you mean - for the first couple of weeks I just tried to keep busy with other stuff so it took my mind off it. A bit of support and encouragement from others doesn't go amiss either sometimes. Just think how much coin you'll save and then be able to spend on the car!!

    Never smoked. At school that scene just passed me by, thankfully, and it's never interested me. TBH I can't wait until this year's part-public ban starts, and then hopefully those wimps at Westminster will extend it to a full ban.

    I'm sure that would help those here trying to quit as well as me.
