If it's any help at all to anyone trying to give up smoking......

In the 4 years since I stopped I reckon I have saved £10,200 (30 a day at around £5 a pack).

That's a big chunk of dosh (looks better when converted to euros! €15,172)

Apart from the tremendous health benefits and a feeling if immense smugness I reckon that would pay for a fair bit of fuel and servicing for your rib.

The best of luck. It's tough but worth it in the end.

Mike.
Anyway, there I was, lying in bed in unfamiliar surroundings, with the beautiful dark eyes of Doctor Heather looking down at me and in a velvet voice she said:

"It's up to you, Russell. You can smoke; or you can live. No pressure."

So I quit, there and then.


Seven years now.
