I'm afraid I'm a "Never smoked but like to vote anyway" although my Dad has given up and is doing really well. He had stopped before but had a relapse about 25 years ago - thankfully he's stopped now.

Would need one that said stopped, started, stopped, started, stopped, started, and maybe repeated that pattern for a bit.

At present totally clean since early June last year, since just after I bet the Gavster £50 I could go longer ythan him without using a tobacco product.

Best so far stopped for approx seven years before starting again.

hey those bets are a good idea.. keeps both of you on the straight and narrow..:D
Stopped smoking about 17 years ago when i started going out with the bloke who bcame my husband, everytime i fancied a ciggy he snogged me instead. i can recommend it as a cure for smoking.
BUT
Even now if i am totally paralytic i still fancy a ciggy and if i actually have one i am sooooo sick the next day, i think the nicotine adds 300% to the hangover. This only happens about once a year.:D

In the clear since the start of this year.
Do get the urge when I've had one too many, but not really the rest of the time.
Not a fan of self help type books usually, but Alan Carr's smoking one did help.

I was a so-called social smoker, on a night out I used to see how long I could last before buying cigarettes, then at about 1130 purchase my first pack , become totally engrossed in my packet of cigarettes, stop talking to people and chain smoke for the remainder of the evening !
Feel like crap in the morning !
So in my case it was antisocial, I now hate people smoking near me !

Smoked as a young lad (many years ago - before Daz gets that one in  
), stopped ages ago, about 30yrs but still get the urge every now and again, awful isnt it that once hooked you might always be so. Never started again, so I suspect I wasnt addicted in the true sense. Wouldnt have the money now to dive and smoke, know which is better for me, but the wife doesnt like the smell of **** so I dive instead  


Keep going people, you know it makes sense.
