I am glad my test posted, so I will try again.
We have been brainwashed for years.
We are not weak willed. We were so determined to teach ourselves to smoke despite the foul taste and gagging. We were told it was bad , unhealthy, but not ADDICTIVE. And if that was mentioned, we were young and it tasted so "Yuck" that was hard to believe. We just wanted to present a new image and fit in wit...
I am testing here before writing and no post. Read the next entry called QUITTING SMOKING CAN BE EASY! REPEAT QUITTING SMOKING CAN BE EASY! We need to undo all the brainwashing. That is not to say that you may find it hard, but QUITTING SMOKING CAN BE EASY!
I want to be fit and healthy
So it's been 38 days. And im still taking champix but 1 tablet a day as 2 was making me feel worse. And so far so good the weird dreams have gone, i still get occasional headaches, but what i do notice is the fact im not as stressed and depressed as when i did smoke. i did go through a week of feeling like i lost a friend but that's all due to quitting and i found out its normal. After reading ot...
So its been 122 days since I went cold turkey. I can tell that the cravings are getting less frequent and my breathing is getting much better when going on a run, so that keeps me somewhat motivated to continue on down this path, but I cant help but wonder: am going to be stuck like this forever? Am I going to have to fight an urge to light one up every day? Does it ever go away?

Now I'm starting the constant disgusting cough with phlegm. Its time. I'm scared because I enjoy smoking. Always have. My triggers will be coffee, love my first smoke of the day with fresh coffee. I am...
This my second go at trying to quit smoking again, and I'm trying to learn how and what I can do to distract myself any tips
In the past the cost of cigarettes was never a motivating factor for me to give it up. I would find the money and just go without other things.
However it was annoying at times that I didn't have a certain something and just had to improvise. I calculated today. I would have purchased 14 packets of cigarettes by now at an average cost of $40 per packet. Wow that's $560 i have saved. That's a ...
Started Nicotex patch today. Didnt feel craving for the first half of the day but bit itchy now:( I have tried cold turkey a few times but it didnt last so hoping the patch with help. My spouse is a heavy smoker so I am bit nervous about relapse- psychological / habit based rather than withdrawl... I am more determined in a non- dramatic way this time so lets hope!!
