I just want to quit but it just so hard. Can anyone help me. I don’t smoke at night but I have a few through the day. I just need motivation as I want to be healthy n I want to loose weight as well.
This is the second time I totally quit cold turkey . I have been totally off cigs for 23 days . A few weeks before I quit I switched to green tea cigs that were awful but have no nicotine . Although I was still smoking I was going through withdrawal . I got a bad cold a few weeks later and just stopped completely . Now suffering from the depression and exhaustion but hopeful to make it through th...
Went 5 months ciggie free earlier in the year. With help of Champix. Trying again after a couple months back on....Dr won't give me Champix again because I got quite depressed so trying patches this time.

I hope this will be a smooth transition as I weaned myself right down before taking this step. So here's to keeping my eyes on the prize and looking forward. There just is no turning back now😊
So it's been a month already since I quit smoking. The time has flown by really. I remember posting here when I was 2 days quit. Thanks to everyone here for their support :)
All in all it's getting easier. But as I've said in other posts, sometimes I still feel that urge to have a cigarette. However I resist so all good. But relating to how others feel, it gets annoying at times.
It takes a lon...
