    I hope you don't mind me offering a word of advice, I would stop on 4th January. All over Christmas you will be doing things you associate with smoking, having a drink, eating rich foods etc...
    I stopped on 5th January when we went back to work. Was working nights so was able to come straight in and go to bed so a lot of the day taken care of. Didn't go out first weekend but then made a point the weekend after of going down the pub. When .I got through that I knew I could crack it.
    Found out I drunk quite a lot more, raising my glass up and down instead of being occupied in smoking a cigarette.<laugh> Shows how actions become engrained in you.

    I totally understand that, but the best I ever did was just before Christmas two years ago. I stopped for four weeks and three days.

    I only started again because the Missus was winding me up. (it was her time of the month and she wanted blood, wouldn't let it go).

    I'll gaurd against that next time and just go to bed <laugh>

    Unfortunately you can't follow my standard procedure at the moment if the missus winds me up, you know doing provocative things like not agreeing or suggesting there is a possibility I may just be wrong, which is to inform her I am going down the pub.

    I stopped after visiting a hypnotist - my willpower alone was hopeless, I could barely go a day without one. I went to see this guy who'd had a 100% record of helping work colleagues to stop - first thing he said was ''I can't make you do anything, I can only help you if you really want to'' That was almost 25 years ago, I smoked my last one walking to the guys house and I've never had one or wanted one since.

    Kemps will do it - Chazz will see to it!

    I stopped on Xmas day 2003. Tried a couple of times before by going cold turkey but failed. Changed method the third time. Nicotine is a very powerful drug so instead of going all out and just stopping, I reduced the amount I smoked by one a day. If I was having a bad day I didn’t reduce by one but didn’t increase either. I was smoking 40 a day to start with then 39 then 38 etc. Over time I got down to 7 and just stopped on the Xmas day. Weaned the body off slowly so it wasn’t as hard to stop completely. In the 17 years I have never even had a cigarette in my hand. And don’t use patches or gum. The hard part is getting the body to accept a nicotine free life. Patched and gum delay the process. Good luck with it. Transformed my life.

    Whichever way you stop there comes a time you have to do it on your own with no aids. Unless you wish to remain on them or vaping for ever and a day.So may as well go cold turkey. That was the way I stopped after trying nicotine patches, gum etc...
    Nicotine is out of your system in a few days after that it is just adjusting things and getting used to not reaching for a cigarette when you have had a cup of coffee, the phone rings etc...
    My doctor at the time said in some ways it was harder to give up cigarettes than heroin due to the easy availability of cigarettes everywhere you go whilst you have to seek heroin out. That was after his struggles to stop smoking when he decided it was hypocritical to tell others to stop. Mind you, after seeing him in my pub on a couple of occasions I realised why he didn't lecture about me about not having too many units.<laugh>

    What many forget is that Radford's goal was the equaliser to force extra time.
