    I also gave up smoking, on the 29th of April 2008 at 18:00 that evening I had my last sigarette, till today - havent touched it, not even a pull from someone :thumbup:
    To make a success you have to be ready in your head, don't do it for anybody else - it usually fails. You must do it because you want to!
    If I think back, I didn't suffer, because I told myself I am the boss, not the smokes!!! ;)


    I wasn't even snappy or grumpy(maybe had a moment or so :p ), if you feel you get tensed up, sit in front of your tank, calms you down quite a bit :)

    By the way, your food tastes better after a few days, you'll feel better and everything smells better - it's well worth it!!

    If you feel like smoking, read my post again ;)

    Good luck, and be positive ;)

    I love my coffee, and I always smoked during and after it. When I stopped smoking, I still had my coffee, but drank a glass of water after it, it took the craving away :thumbup:

    Yeah, how stupid of me. I was in the army, first week, everyone smoked except me - what a mistake to join! Could've had 10 species specific tanks by now, but noooo, it's better to burn your money away :nono:

    And now I'll save R22/packet x 365 days = R8030/year

    I see a new skimmer , I see a new skimmer coming :slayer: :slayer:
