I gave it up about five times, the longest spell off it, ending when our oldest child was born. Finally, a lot later, I took the option still easily available in ex-mining areas and went over to snuff, which a I cut down five or ten minutes a week for as long as it took. It probably saved me from lung cancer to take my nicotine that way - I got a bladder tumour instead! Happy days! The great thing to remember is that the tobacco companies' profits kept up wonderfully. Long liver capitalism, eh?
    Yep, for sure. Now they market their poison to people in third world countries.

    I'm glad you were able to break free!
