If anyone is serious about giving up, try Champix (I know it has had bad press but it works). Teresa and myself wanted to come over on our reccie as non smokers (and the kids were nagging us) so we went to the smoking clinic and were prescribed these.
Teresa had been smoking for bext part of 20 years and i for 27, within 6 weeks we had both quit. Importantly, no raging bull acts or petty arguments. We has both ried patches and the likes before but no luck.
7 months on we don't have any regrets about giving up, we can go down the pub and mix with smoking friends and not have the desire for a smokeBonus was that with getting theseon the NHS it only cost us the price of a prescription.
I agree wuth CB that the law about smoking in cars with children should e intridyuced here as well
