last night, I gave up smoking.
I'm going to be liberal with myself at first and allow myself to smoke a fag if I'm out drinking and somebody offers me one or buy a pack of 10 on a big night out but nothing more (if I'm not liberal with myself and that will happen anyway then i'll think its failed and just start smoking again)
My main method of stratergy, though, is whenever I feel a craving for a cigarette, to drink some beer. Hopefully the pleaseneness of the beer and relaxation effect will take my mind off the nicatine. We'll see.
