I was as guilty - in fact I think it was me that started it in the first place!

I think she is doing ok on her own. I certainly wouldn't be buying a book about giving up smoking. You either do it on your own (as I did) or use the patches, tablets etc.

Thats why you should open up your mind to the book.Substituting cigarettes for any other nicotine replacement therapy is not the best thing to do,thats just replacing nicotine with nicotine & still feeding that little nicotine monster,I was just purely saying that book worked for me when nothing else has & its a lot easier than i thought.

Hi kieser I think the book is a good option if you can get it from the library even better as it costs nothing to read it, it will be a good resource for some in the same way as tablets or patches are for others, I would never dismiss it and often want to read one about losing weight but never do but I ought to make more effort.

I personally went cold turkey giving up smoking but to this day if I'm too stressed I can have one, but that's it, I have one and then don't need another but for that moment it calms my nerves. 9 times out of 10 I hate cigarette smell/smoke but but that 10th time well that's whole different story. x

I went cold turkey and would never have another one as I know I would go back to smoking again.

I agree with Lesley that you should try the library.

To be honest Lesley I wouldn't buy diet books - I've wasted so much money on those over the years and it made no difference.
