Had a trawl through your posts as I haven't visited for a while now. Didn't recognize one of your names. Regardless, I want to encourage all of you to stay strong. Don't let the nicotine demons win. I've saved more than $10,000 since I quit smoking on January 1, 2012. I used Champix and read a book called Allan Carrs Easyway To Stop Smoking. It worked. It hasn't been easy but it was easier than the previous 2 times I tried to quit. Stay strong! You CAN do it.

    Good to hear. I am at 528 days and $8712 better off.
    But that is using the 18 month old price. Has the cost of a packet of cigs gone up in the last 18 months ?

    Also depends how many you smoked back then Gerry compared to NNS. Congrats to both of you, I'm very keen to be where you are!!
