    Fags, destroy me having them, destroys me not having them!!

    Hi All,
    I am a smoker. Smoke 25/30 a day. Not Good. I have a heart condition too. Want to jack it all in just feel "youl never sucseed so why bother" Deeply annoys me to think I throw upward of 50 quid a week away on fags. Esp when my car is out there almost standard because "I cant afford it at the mo". JUST SAY I gave up for 2 weeks, I could have a debadged grille and both boot and bonnet lifters (from LMF) and thats just a start, so Imagine "me motor" in 6 months!!!!! VERY ANNOYING!

    Please somebody- tell me your in my shoes and wanna give up to fund your car......

    Its not so much if you want to pay for the mods on your car... its whether you want to live to be able to drive it!!

    i have cut down masses now... got a new house which i dont smoke in and work from home half the week and in an office the other half .. prob do about 5 a day if that now.... hoping to stop real soon but doing it in stages.....

    If you REALLY want to stop... go to the docs they giving everything out free now!!!

    That is £2400 a year you could be chucking at your car instead - it all mounts up!

    Then again I'm larger than the average so I can't really comment on addiction matters I suppose!

    If you want to stop or cut back, go onto rollies.

    I did and smoke less because I canot be arsed rolling them. And I am less that £5 every 2 weeks on filters, papers and 'baccy.

    Its a means to an end IMO, I will stop but when I am ready to.

    You can get the patches from the doctor?

    I smoked 20 a day, now Im at an average 5-10 a day, through will power only. But essentially because of Paranoia, whenever I was ill i thought "cancer", no matter what it was, sore throat? "cancer", bad cough, "cancer", any symptoms relating to cancer I thought I had cancer and that's what gave me the power to cut down. I'm only 19 and very very paranoid when it comes to health, I'm also asthmatic which doesn't help.

    Dude, 25/30 is an awful lot, especially with a heart condition. Psychology can play a big part in quitting smoking, especially if you're into the modding scene! Imagine "what if?".....what if you didn't buy those cigarettes last week and you had a new debadged grill on your car like you say! Killing two birds with one stone as you're getting healthier and putting money to good use.

    At the end of the day though sunshine... its like losing weight.. getting fit.. stopping drinking... or calming tempers... The only person that can make it happen is YOU.. and you have to want to do it bad enough.. A list 100 items long with reasons to stop will only tell you what you already know!

    and if all else fails.. get a patch and stick it over your mouth!
