The problem is that cigarettes don't cost the same at every shop ... It doesn't have a fixed price like gas (petrol), so you'll have to track it per brand per shop.

In USA Gas costs different per state (Between some states as far as I noticed from my travels) and sometimes per gas station (In the same state).

Wow, that's cool. I think we're not big enough for that ...

lol, I don't really think that's cool.

Let's say I go to one gas station and buy 15 gallons of gas at $1.90 per gallon and then on my way home I see a gas station selling the same gas at $1.85 per gallon. That's $0.75 difference... not much, but it's still something you could have saved... (Prices don't reflect the real prices we/I pay today, but is very close to it :lol:).

It's just that bigger gas stations could stand to loose 5-10 cents on gas and they make up that loss and more from soda and other stuff they sell inside.

Bogey, you're right - not cool. lol That's just how it is, I guess. I work 45 mins away from my home, and there's on average a 15 cent difference, so I have to try to remember to fill up before I get low enough that I can't make it back, or I pay the difference. *shrug*

I have done 30 since xmas.. not bad really after 30 years smoking the horrid things. I was going well until I got beaten up 3 weeks ago.. Needed that old friend to make me feel better then took 2 weeks to get rid of them again.

It's possible.. I know it is, but addictions can come back and bite you when you get down.. and that sucks XD

On a side note my mother did multiple things to stop smoking for the past 15 years, first started cold turkey worked for a year... and then she started again with her divorce then decided on some pills... she stopped for a month and gave in again. Then maybe 3 years later went on to try Hypnosis which worked for a year and half maybe two.. The last shot was the good one I think shes now been off cigarettes for 3 years going on 4. She went to a specialised clinic where they cleaned her entire body of the cigarette, she ended up having kidney stones because of it.. but after her very first treatment, everytime she smelled cigarette she felt like throwing up. So the envy to smoke was never there and till this day her new fiance is a smoker and NEVER does she think of wanting a drag. I'll look into the name of the treatment.

It really did an amazing job for her.

Well, I just got down to the last one that I had and made the decision NOT to go to the store to buy more. Going to give it my best shot to just stop cold turkey without the Chantix this time (although I do have a few pills left in a pinch).

I started smoking at the age of 14, I was up to 3 packs a day up until 2 years ago. I tried auricular therapy and never had another craving at all. Not even one. amazing!

Just another idea in case the chantrix doesn't work. Good luck!

Here's a link with a little bit of info.

This might sound harsh, but if you can't quit cold turkey it's more than likely not going to last.

There's not many things more stressfull than giving up smoking. If you can make it through that experience there shouldn't be many, if any, thing that could make you start up again after you quit.

I have to agree with TPAM.
If you managed to quit smoking, other things would be easier.

Congrats ATNO!

I gave up two years ago due to a cold and unable to breathe going up hill. It was the right time for me to stop.

I had - had family stop but died from one cancer or another so I was worried about stopping. I had support by phone calls from the NHS line. The first 12 months I was fine and never bothered but then out of the blue I wanted a cig desperately but never gave in.

Its when I am on the machine and things don't go right and I get annoyed then I want one so have a drink of tea or coffeee instead. If anyone says its easy they are liars.

Water was a lifesaver too ATNO.

Good luck!

Chanpix, is called CHAMPIX in Australia.

Quote:
Champix is a non-nicotine tablet specifically designed as a stop-smoking treatment. It works in the brain, helping to reduce the cravings and withdrawal symptoms associated with quitting, while also reducing the pleasure you get if you smoke a cigarette while you're taking the tablet. Champix is available only on prescription so ask your doctor or pharmacist if it's right for you.


I know so many people who have used this successfully. Its quite expensive here though (about $120 or so for 3 months), unless you have a concession card then its $4.40 lol.

Congratulation!
I tried many time to stop smoking. It is very hard for me to stop. When I feel hungry i feel to smoke and when i feel lonely i am urged to smoke. Sometime i quit for one to three months but after sometime i used to start again. It's really hard for me to stop smoking. :onfire:

Well it isn't easy for sure. Not making much progress. But I'm not giving up either. If I could get rid of the stress I have right now, it'd be a whole lot easier.
