I quit smoking. Let me repeat myself. I quit smoking. It’s been about 3 weeks now. The first two days I was crying, screaming and pulling my hair out. I compared quitting smoking to:

a) the loss of a great love
b) the death of a family member

Yes both of these are a bit dramatic in hindsight, but that’s how it felt.

So now it’s been in three weeks and I’m over the hump, I hope. Quitting smoking has given us and extra $250 a month to put towards the loans and, hopefully a few years tacked onto the end of my life. (NOTE: My voice is still very deep and my skin looks the same – damn!)

Well done! What's your secret? I'm still trying and only manage to last during the week at the moment. The weekend always makes me falter!
