If it doesn't work for you this way, Fiona, you can always try cold turkey while using patches.  We can do it, come on give me your hand and we'll get there together, we can be free!

I'll try that again!

I know this sounds like an excuse (prob is....) Jim and have taken early retirement (well I have), very rural area and winters can be very extreme.  However, come spring we will be busy with polytunnel and arranging a "garden" (using that term loosely cos it's a field just now) should I try and cut down (more expense than anything else) and try cold turkey come spring when we will be busy again.  Hmm ponders.  Many thanks for your support TAbig_hug

It might be the way forward for you, if you think you'd be too tempted in the winter months.  Whatever you choose, I'll be here backing you up.big_hug

I'll try that again!

That is a real achievement, TA, because they (well, perceived knowledge) say that it takes 21 days to either break the back of an old habit or to form a new one.

Very well done to you. star star star star star

Keep going and you may well inspire me too. wink

Well done Janet!champagne        

Yes Danny, you can do it too!

I'm having a bit of a crisis this morning, I really feel that I want nicotine but I haven't even had a drag on the old inhalator so I am being good.  

It's a smashing sunshiny day here so will get out and about soon to take my mind off it.

I'll try that again!

Mornin' TA, just to let you know that I'm thinking about you, and wondering what else you can get into - perhaps painting; carving; photography; any other crafts ............. big_hug
