Well if you finish that process, DD, i.e. become firm in your conviction that you really do want to stop, then it might be worth giving hypnotherapy a go. If the therapist is any good they will be able to tell in your initial discussion whether you are truly ready to benefit from it. Of course if they aren't any good they will probably take you on regardless... So it's worth getting a personal recommendation from someone you trust.

She's a neighbour I have known for some years, Nora, and all she has done is make the offer - must be nearly a year ago now. The rest she appears to be leaving to me, as the subject doesn't arise unless I broach it, and her response is always that it is up to me when I'm ready. She is a lovely lady who has a very calm manner, and I think she would be good, but cannot perform miracles... :smile:
