      This is - I know - gonna sound outrageously patronising but it is meant sincerely.

      I always feel heart sorry for smokers when I see ‘em huddled outside the boozer / restaurant on a ‘freeze the bollocks off you’ night.

      Firstly that must be sh*t in and of itself but to be so in thrall to a habit / addiction must be even worse.

      Don’t get me wrong I’m a massive advocate of the smoking ban - but I do still feel for those people when I see it.

      I’m no fan of the ban, I mean as you say groups of smokers huddled outside and you have young children walking past, not a good look..I think there should be a designated areas indoors with the correct ventilation..

      Smoked 3 in the last day.... saw it coming to be honest & I guess dealing with an alcoholic brother who is on self destruct does not help..

      Life isn’t absolute mate. Don’t beat yourself up.

      Very hard watching someone you love self harming and (in my experience) self deceiving.....

      Couple fags is neither here nor there.

      Still going well.

      Although my down fall is when on the beer.

      Would need to go off the beer to completely go off the smokes.

      Like that's gonna happen.

      Keep it up peeps and don't beat yourselves up if you give in for the occasional one or two or three. Cutting right down is a good way to start the process of getting out of the habit.

      The last cig i had was on holiday Sept 14, so nearly 5 years without touching one again.

      It wasn't easy but I started by cutting down gradually and then vaping when i had a drink (which is quite often).

      Good luck!
