Or start masturbating chronically. Which would make for a very amusing worker in a call centre

Maybe give this a go: http://www.stevegjones.com/stopsmokingwithhypnosis.htm
It's cheap and ya listen to it at night before going to sleep (im asleep within like 5-10 min), I have been giving one a go to help me with my speech impediment, and while it's not getting rid of it totally, it seems to be making me concentrate on what I am trying to say before I say it. Whether that is the hypnosis or my analysing if its working or not. It has helped!
$30 is cheap if you wanna give something a go without wasting your time going to an actual hypno for a few sessions etc.

Ignore the fact that all of the "specials" end at midnight tonight, its a script that grabs the date and displays it back to you. (Could say something about the product?)

If you've given everything else a go I think what's there to loose? (besides cash but pffft thats nothing compared to your health)

I know of a couple of people who have been to a place (in Brisbane) called Matrix...
http://www.matrixlaserclinics.com/ quite expensive and doesn't work for everyone but they give you a money back guarantee type thing.

My mum had it done & she hasn't had a smoke since. She was a heavy smoker & for years so for her not to have one is good & she hasn't had any mood swings which she has had when she tried to go cold turkey. She says she still craves for one though so alot of it would be will power as well. I tell her to try one as who knows she might hate it but she doesn't want to take that risk..If your really wanting to quit then i guess give it a try. She paid $160 so that's not to bad when you consider how much your going to save on smokes..=]
I can only please one person, today isn't your day & tomorrow isn't looking good either!!!

you don't say. Makes you wonder what else you do or don't do that's just all in your head.

But enough about the power of the mind, and it's myriad uses on the path to self embettermentness, I want to hear more about spoke's hand shandy affliction.

My mate did it, and he stopped getting cravings.
But then a couple of weeks later, he had some ciggies when pissed, and started smoking again.

So it doesn’t stop you smoking, it gets you over the cravings

I read that book too. And then continued smoking on my merry way. i take this to mean my willpower to smoke is far greater than all the non-smokers in the world.

so far I haven't got a date or a venue. Or anyone to play. Or a particular cause. Or backing from any girl on girl social welfare agencies. But I'm not letting that stop me. Like you said, every woman needs a good man behind them, even the lesbians. And with that shining light of good intent powering me, I swear to you by all that's holy, there will be a benefit gig, and it will be called Lemon Aid.

And it shall be good. Remember, when Jim Morrison appeared with the half-naked Indian, he said to you; if you book them, they will come.

To miggz: 7months was excellent. You could do it again. Give it another go. Now there's lots more laws against smoking there's not a lot of places left where one can be tempted to spark up.

As to alternative "therapies" there are many scam merchants out there, looking to take money from those they see as "suckers".

Take care with anything thats not medically and scientifically proven.

There are lots of scams out there, and if it seems too good to be true, it usually is.

like anti-smoking advice from a junkie?



miggz I gave up smoking 2 years ago - I used the patches - I haven't smoked since - I know it sounds trite - but its willpower mostly and the added oomph from the patches to bring you down. You have to want to quit, hypnosis and books aren't going to help with that. You are going to help with that. You have to reach that point where you want to quit.

I jest...actually...no, i'm still smoking, but many have said how effective that book is. I'm just superstrong in my willingness to die a painful death when i'm older.

If you're really hardcore you can get that book in the "Test Your Willpower" edition.

The pages are all gummed along one side and the cover's perforated for easy roach construction.

Two of my friends did it and they stopped smoking sober (possibly to justify the ridicule we gave them). They still smoke while drunk though.
