It is wonderful that you and your wife had teamed together to stop smoking, even if it was a bet~~
I, also have tried all the above mentioned things to stop.
Nobody around me smokes,now. I had one friend that stopped back last Feb., of this year. So, I will have to just make the bet with myself. You'd think with my huge fear of having some form of Breast Cancer at the moment, I would stop in my tracks. But, I just seem to get nervous and head for the smoking. I will not smoke the entire cigarette, because it taste bad to me but still want it....sad situation with these things!
