Just a quick note to see how everyone is getting on. I have just completed my fifth month. It has been very hard going and I have felt quite poorly but things seem much better now. How is everyone else getting on.

      Well done you. You are amazing. Wish I had felt good so early. Had paid several visits to the doctors surgery in the early weeks. Still I had been s owing for 50 years so it was quite a shock tomy system. Keep up the good work.

      Hi radley13,

      i had had hypnosis to give up smoking as I had no willpower at all. I wouldn't use champix  n. My daughter used it and towards the end of the course she felt depressed and suicidal it's not for Everyone. Hope it works for you but take care. Let me know how you progress biggrin

    Thankyou - could you tell me more about your experience for hypnosis and where you went - it is something that I have but not a good experience and dismissed it what was it like for you and it obviously works too.  R

      The lady that did my hypnosis was really good. Nothing like what I was expecting. I was totally aware of what was happening and could hear other things that were going on outside the room as well as listening to her voice. There were moments when I thought 'this is just not working' but it obviously did. The session lasted an hour and a half and cost me £120.  My tobacco tin and lighter are still in the glove compartment of my car which I

      Haven't opened since.  I had no willpower at all. I had been smoking for fifty years and hadn't even stopped for 24 hours. Give it some thought but try and go with someone that comes recommended.

    Thanks for sharing your exerience- how long have you stopped for now?  I have no intention of ever smoking again a complete waste of time money and health.  Do you ever get the desire with your hypnosis ever think about it or if you see others smoking or if your wound up and would normally reach for a smoke to calm down just interested to know thank you.

      The fact is that I get very cross when I smell other people's smoke, and don't feel the desire to smoke again myself. I have got a vapour cigarette with a zero nicotine liquid. I might use it once a day. The worse moment I had was when I was driving, I had a panic attack. I now keep a supply of lollypops in the car which seem to do the trick. I gave up smoking on 20th of January this year and to be honest I felt ill for the first few weeks and am only now feeling back to my old self. My under active thyroid has been affected by my giving up and recent blood test showed border line results. Have spoken to someone on the thyroid chat line and they are experiencing the same thing. Sorry, seem to be going on a bit, but hope I have answered your questions ok 😊
