THE DEATH STAR.
Was limiting myself to once a week for months. Last time I drank I decided enough was enough. I am just going to quit

I probably also, no I have abused caffeine before. Got that under control not going to quit though.

I really want to quit smoking but nothing works.

Set yourself small doable targets then increment so you feel you are not failing. So 1 day nicotine free, then 2, 4, 8, 16, 32, 64 etc. Worked for me. Or alan carrs book is really good.

The first 3 days are the most difficult with nicotine - once you're through those you're past the worst of it!

Do you use ecigs? After tapering down from 6mg to 0mg and a month of so of using 0mg liquids just for the action, stopping completely was quite easy.

You can do it :)

I was in a shop the other day and the person in front of me at the checkout bought a packet of 20 cigerettes - I was appalled at the price.

So the best advice I can offer is work out what you spend per day, week, month. Then think of something you would really like to buy or a trip you would like to go on and see how quickly you could save up given the money you would save by not smoking.
