Well done mate, but it will get harder. Your mind will play tricks to convince you thats it ok to have one, have your reasons-not-to at hand when it comes. Write them down! 2 Weeks to clear out the chemicals, then a psychological battle.. apparently.

Don't you dare trying to post here that your attempt has failed. I'll personally book a ticket over to the UK and slap you for it. :lol:

If it's any consolation, I've given up coffee, alcohol and chocolate for Lent. Or whatever the German equivalent of Lent is.

It's a nightmare sm16 Coffee is the worst, particularly in the mornings. My tea consumption has trebled.

I really don't get the whole "giving up chocolate for lent" thing. Even giving up beer seems a bit silly. Why stop yourself having enjoyment? (Other than religious reasons). Every year it seems bizzare to me. I mean cigs I get, theres nothing good about them really.

Because it's the most difficult. I drink gallons of the stuff normally.

Weight, health, not getting too used to things... A break from some things can't do any harm.

Giving up posting on Volvo forums for Lent might be an idea for next year ;-)
