FYI you have your best chance of giving up at your third serious attempt. (research has been done on this ) I think the reason is : when you first give up and the initial cravings are over , you think you won't be a smoker again , you get a bit cocky and at some stage you have a drag at a party or have high stress ect and within weeks end up smoking again . Next time giving up, going through the whole process again, you gain expierience and realise the consequences and that the easiest way is just not to smoke at all. This trial and error process is hard work and takes three serious attempts unless you are a quick learner or very very determined.@Rocket-Boy Well done. There are still going to be temptations ahead, but they happen less frequently.
I have given up three times in my life:
and now six and a half years.
So please do not be as foolish as I was during the first two times.
