Well that went quick...too quick....I have just completed 1 year with no smoking. Roughly...I'm about $4,500 better off in 1 year from no smoking and almost no drinking. It's not been hard at all really....Champix is a miracle drug!!!!

To be honest..i'm pretty happy with myself. I had grave doubts I could do it and kept putting it off because the one time I did stop cold turkey was REALLY difficult. I'm not sure my commitment would have been strong enough without using Champix but in the end it doesn't matter because I have done it and will never smoke again.
In the two years I have been in Tathra with minimal drinking and now no smoking, I reckon I am $6,500 better of and by this time next year will be $11,000 ahead. Considering the price of a better quality 50grm pouch of tobacco will be about $60 that is pretty easy to understand.

Awesome mate, well done!

There's been some research to show the biggest factor in giving up any addiction is finding a hobby that you enjoy and keeps you busy.

Go fishin'!

My new hobby at the moment is spending money on the Dmax. It's taking shape but my credit card is in really bad shape. I'll have to stop for a few months. I'll check my pics and see when I last updated.
