As mentioned in another thread, I recently quit smoking. I've done it before and fallen off the wagon even after more than 5 years abstinance. Any tips?
A friend told me that once you smoke a dragon gets inside you. You can starve it but once you feed it smoke it wakes up again. I bloody hate those people who can have the odd fag now and again. They don't have dragons.
Why did I give up? Not the budget and not because my doctor nagged me. A much better reason. At a wedding recently I met an old school friend. She is now a beautiful, fit (and single) businesswoman of 50 something; a bit younger than me. She mentioned that she hated the smell and wouldn't kiss anyone who smoked. What was I supposed to do? Say "That's very interesting" and pop out for the fag I was gasping for? By the time she returned to Brisbane I hadn't smoked for a few days and it seemed daft to start again. Still bloody difficult though and nicorette "fag sweets" just make you explode.
All suggestions welcome.
