Well as I've already touched on my attempt to give up smoking I guess I had better give you the stats. On the 1st Jan this year I got myself a set of bathroom scales that gave all the fat and H2O readings as well as my weight, as I wanted to keep an eye on my progress with the Zyban. Well heres the chart at the end of February. Maybe a little down on the weight and body fat and a touch up on the H2O levels, at least I've not put any weight on which is the main thing. And as for the smoking... well, I'm doing just fine so far, let's hope it keeps on that way.

Five weeks into the course of Zyban (the stop smoking drug) and I feel like I haven't slept a wink since I started taking them. Ok so I've stopped the smoking which was the main point of taking them in the first place, and what's more, after 20+ years of 40+ a day, I'm not missing them at all, which has surprised me more than anyone else. But this tiredness is killing me slowly, probably more so than the fags themselves! At least in 4 weeks time the course will be finished and I'll be able to sleep again. I was warned about some of the side effects, and there are a lot of them, but I guess, the sleeplessness and sweaty (very sweaty) nights are minimal to some of the side effects I could have had. Even death was one of the side effects, but at least those people gave up smoking for good.
