    Six weeks of non smoking and I think I'm doing pretty bloody well. Haven't had a single cigarette so far and, after a few days of being grouchy right at the beginning, I have been dealing with it really well.

    I've been using something called Snus (a non combusted tobacco product) every time I want a cigarette, and within a couple of minutes the craving is gone with about as much reliability as it isn't gone with patches or gum. I was told by several people that this stuff really works but this is the first time I've really given it a proper try and, it really does.

    And, of course, I've saved over $200 bucks.

    So, this post is basically to say "Thanks" to all the folks who have sent me PMs etc to wish me luck and be supportive. :clap2:

    If I fuck it up now it will be all down to me being an idiot. :lol:

    So, in other words, you are not doing your fair share to finance the SCHIP program for uninsured children.
    How heartless of you.

    Can we have one discussion that DOESN'T go into politics?

    On a political board? I trust that was a rhetorical question.

    I quit the same time you did, I think.. I've had 2 slips since then.. If you've had none, you're doing far better, and I'm jealous. :(

    Snus is making it a lot less tough than I expected.

    This is the health and lifestyle forum. There's also the music and sports forum.

    So therefore, not every discussion needs to be political. :eusa_eh:

    And remember Bob; just count up all the money you saved from not smoking and you'll be quite happy. :lol:
