😫can someone please tell me why I’m having the worst anxiety of my life? The physical side effects are getting unbearable. My chest literally feels like it’s crushed and I can’t breathe right. My chest is tight and all that’s on my mind is smoking. I didn’t think it would be this hard. Will this go? I just need help with the crushing feeling. I’m in hospital 3 days post ob (breast abscess) and I...
Hello my names Gina I’m new to this so bare with me please, I’m day 2 into cutting down to 1 smoke. I used to do about 25-30 a day easily. But I’ve come to realisation that going to hospital on Monday has told me I need to snap out of it and stay committed or I won’t be able to breathe for much longer.

I am absolutely stoked about being now 4 weeks as a non smoker!
I can't believe now how scared I was. This is the first time I have actually confessed to that. My days are so much easier now. The anxiety about when I am going to fit my smoke breaks in, getting to the shops to make sure my stocks are ok, who is around, can they smell me......all gone.
And I saved enough money to go out and buy...

Started smoking everyday at the rate of a pack a day when I was 16. I have tried to quit many...
Day 2 & going strong, I believe from cutting down to zero has helped me stay stronger from not going back.
With your help, I know I can achieve the best result. I have smoked for many years, I think about 45yrs. THANKYOU
Keeping in good spirit

I started smoking when I was 13 years old. My family were all smokers, mostly truck drivers and I was surrounded by peers who smoked.
I’m now 38 and a certified Chef. My idol(of course) is Chef Ramsay. I own all of his books and every one of them tells you that if you smoke, quit now because smoking dulls your palette. I knew patches and gums wouldn’t work so I decided to try E-cigarettes. Howe...
