    I am currently not smoking as I've been trying to give up, since the New Year. I've been smoking since I was 15 and that is a long time...

    I am as a lot of people have been, way past any of the numbers of X-13's table of nicotine withdrawal symptoms.

    However, I am still daily needing a huge amount of willpower to resist starting again.

    ..which is why , even as a Pagan, I give things up for Lent every year! It sort of hones my willpower and proves to me that I CAN give something up (not comparing it to obesity issues or smoking before anyone jumps down my throat!)
    I managed to give up smoking eventually but even then, personal issues would send me straight back on the fags after years of abstention. I am still addicted and cold start again tomorrow - I CHOOSE not too and it does get easier over time.

    We had some friends years ago (lost touch with them when we moved). They both smoked. He smoked about 60 a day. She smoked about 5 a day.
    We persuaded them to give up.
    He just gave up. She had terrible trouble.
    I actually saw her on the sofa crying and very grey and shaking for a fag!
    In the end they both started again.
    So addiction for one is very dif then addiction for another.
