I smoked when I was in my late teens for around 10 years. I wanted to have children and quit smoking a few years before trying for a baby. I was successful and quit smoking for 15 years. Stupidly I started up again four years ago and am desperately trying to quit.
I start a new job on 2nd May which is next week and have set myself a goal to stop smoking on this day.
I found it easy to quit the first time as I had a goal, I wanted children more that I wanted to smoke and this was the incentive. I am finding it a lot harder to quit this time around, but am focusing on the money I will save as cigarettes are £6 per packet. This means that I would save £42 per week. This is what I am thinking about, as the extra money I save could pay for a holiday at the end of the year.
