My husband would like to give up smoking. He sees the benefit in doing so from both a health and financial perspective.
I guess I am lucky. Both my parents smoked and I remember car journeys choking in the back seat and resolving never to smoke. I have not even tried despite teenage friends trying to tempt me to join them in the dubious joys of the cigarette.
Of course, if you never get involved in smoking, you are sorted. However, if like my husband you started smoking when you were very young, it is a real challenge. He has tried giving up completely, reducing the number of cigarettes smoked per day and hypnosis.
Despite failing in the past, he has a new resolution to stop smoking, with the desire to save money, be healthier and show a good example to his children.
Quitting smoking is so challenging but there are new methods of support for those who want to say goodbye to cigarettes for good.
I believe he can do it. After years of smoking crazy amounts of cigarettes per day, both my parents gave up in their fifties.
What are your tips on giving up smoking?
