I see we are but days away from Nanny's "Stoptober" campaign to encourage smokers to quit smoking en masse for 28 days.
In theory, if Nanny is to believed, those who manage to stop for 28 days have a greater chance of breaking their "addiction" (Nanny's word) than those who don't.
I predict that whilst the usage of fags may diminish temporarily during the 28 day period, the consumption of other "Nanny disapproved" substance (eg booze, illegal drugs, sugar and chocolate) will increase.
Like it or not, the brain is programmed to seek pleasure; deprive it of one "vice", and it will look for a substitute.
In the meantime Nanny may care to consider what she will do do supplement her ever dwindling tax revenue, if she ever does succeed in weaning large numbers of people of her much hated "weed".
FYI, my granddad used to smoke a robust substance called "Diggers' Shag" (I dare say the name would be banned now); one day he simply decided to stop smoking (of his own free will, not because the state lectured him to stop), and did just that. He had a strong will, and never suffered from withdrawal symptoms.
He died in the early 1970's, not from the effects of smoking but from complications caused by the piece of shrapnel that was still in him from when his ship HMS Pegasus was sunk by the Konigsberg in 1914.
