I find if I chew gum it helps me to stay focused on quitting, BUT, then it makes me hungry so I spend more money then necessary on food.
How do I get started? first day of not smoking and it scared to start, I know I want to give up.

Hi All, we have just had another price rise in Australia...12.5%....wow.
We are paying the highest of any country in the world. Makes you wonder how anyone in Aus can afford to smoke, but people always seem to find the money to do so. Really sad that people will pay so much to destroy their health and self esteem.

Top one: A strong belief in myself.

For I will not leave you alone
