well, i only quit today but i have my last experience to share. OK so i have been smoking for 9 years. I am now 23. I have 1 year old son. I didnt smoke when i was pregnant but i started again when i had him. when he was about 6 months old i quit for 40 days. My reason was... u know how when u smell a certain smell it, it brings back a memory? well i didnt want to be an ashtray memory! I want to smell like his mum! I don't know why i started again... but my new inspiration, apart from not living long enough to see my grandchildren, is.. OMG how fresh are oranges?? eat one of them then try a ciggy!! how disgusting! Oh and if u need further inspiration.. to me it seems like we are paying the government so we can kill ourselves in a slow painful manner.. who would voluntarily pay Julia Gillard?

    you know how much money the govt. get from smoking for every $1.00 spent the govt. get 75 cents they don't want you to quit, but it is good to quit and good for you, all the best.

    Haha omg!! Well said in that last sentence!
    I'd rather jump off a cliff than give my money I get any longer than I have to!
    My last smoke was 11am today (21-01-2013) and I'm on nothing but champix. And my official quit date is tomorrow.
    Good luck to you Natty23 on your quit journey :)
