Elizabeth  F Say No To Smoking! Challenge

Elizabeth F I actually have been a non smoker now since 1997 and had to give it up cold turkey for my health. I can say it was a battle in the beginning but as time past it got easier and yeah the weight gain happened, and didn't want anyone around me to smoke. I now don't care if my friends or family smoke around me. I just ask that they don't smoke a full train around me cuz it does get to me. Plus what has happen to my mother who is now a full COPD patient I am glad I went cold turkey back then. Good luck to all that is trying or is stopping. It is a struggle, but if you set your mind to it "IT WILL GET BETTER"

Nicotine is supposed to rank with Heroin for being hard to kick. I wish you luck, friend.

Slowly cutting down is a start. I use to have a packet a day .Then I cut down, wasn't only noticing my health getting bad, but I felt tired and lethargic all the time, mouth stank and was constantly on the mouthwash n chewing gum for years teeth starting to suffer abit n I ended up with going dentist every fortnight Not cool when you hate them places. When you think about your next fig think of something else or an exercise. You will get there in time. Good luck!
