I'm here because i quit smoking 4 days ago after 12 years as a heavy smoker. i came in here and read all the smoking addiction stuff last week, got on the Aussie Quit site, calculated I'd spent over $50,000AUD on them and it really hit me. Thats a pretty big investment in my own death. Anyway I quit on monday and I feel like a weight has been lifted off my shoulders. i really want to thank everyone for their advice in this forum. I guess i just realised finally that if you dont have control over your mind and body, you havent got much. And even though its soooo hard, i really feel determined, i just hope the feeling lasts. So yeh - thanks, i owe you all one!
