Dizzi, When we both stopped smoking in 1984 we were spending £15 a week. And we only had one car (my company car). And small children needing to be ferried about.

So that £15 per week paid for running costs of a Datsun 120 that smoked more than we ever had. But did the job.

One idea is that - every time you would have spent £7 on a packet of fags - put a similar amount (say a fiver) in a box somewhere. It will soon become a worthwhile amount :-D

John. That is exactly what I did about 3 years ago, I still do and it goes a long way towards paying for my trips to Australia and America which I couldn't afford to do or go all that time on the planes without a smoke, if you understand my gibberish. LOL.

Friends of ours are both heavy smokers.

When they do a long-haul flight they wear nicotine patches!

Geez, have some self-control!

I'm a smoker :-(
