I have just decided to quit social smoking - smoking when I drink. I cannot imagine ever having a good time again when I drink. I have tried to do this many times and failed. Does anyone have any tips? Hypnotherapy? Visualisation? Meditation? Stopping drinking for a while or changing to a new drink? Any advice would be welcomed.
Thanks for the check in. Yes 3 days after countless attempts not getting ahead of myself but am feeling okay. This time I’m trying not to do too much and getting plenty of rest. On minute hour at a time.
After 20 years I have finally quit smoking. The cost and the dependence had finally got to me. I decided to go cold turkey and quit any triggers that could tempt me to get back on the band wagon (alcohol, coffee, ect)

I’ve chosen to take champix and using my willpower managed to accomplish this step, unlike all my previous attempts that never got further than a few hours.
This is my 3rd attempt this year...First time I gave up for a month, second for a fortnight...Wondering if I go for longer this time...
Serial quitter for the last year. I have probably been smoke free longer than a smoker in this time but keep thinking I can have a few puffs. Need to be true to myself and no more sneaky puffs which leads to more and more. It’s in our hands and I want to be free and stop lying to everyone especially myself.
