Welcome to the iCanQuit community this is your opportunity to share with your fellow community members any tips, stories or advice you may have around quitting smoking or staying quit.
I think perseverance is the key word I would like to share. This means that although I get smoking thoughts I still use basic skills. I use skills like the four D's. When I need a break I sip water, I deep breathe, I delay, I do something else. I imagine what the smell of smoke on my face would do to me. It would make me nauseous. A smoke after all this time would make me dry reach or vomit. It w...
So here I am on Day 51 and doing very well! Most days, it is now an afterthought that I smoked. I can go thru an entire day and not even think about it....until I jump on this site. So I have been trying to figure this out for several weeks now so I’ve been really quiet. It seems like every time I jump on to check the stats and stories is when it starts to bug me. And it’s not...
Hi you good things,
I'm on day 13 without smoking. I'm feeling kind of antsy. Well, a bit aggressive. Luckily I live alone, so after pacing and general swearing and looking for a way to curb this, I thought I'd check in with people who are on the same journey. OK. Cheese has calmed me.
Day 56 (week 8)nicotine free.
such an achievement for me.
i once found going an hour with out a cigarette difficult.
so very pleased with the progress i have made.
thank you all for the support you have so freely given.
G'day all, just a quick note that i'm staying strong and enjoying the freedom. Had a really enjoyable lunch today, no real culinary delight, just your normal sandwich, the difference today was that I actually tasted most of it. Staying quit never ceases to amaze me!
Hi everyone, it's been 60 days. And I'm feeling liberated, in control and relieved that I've finally stopped smoking. I don't ever want to go back to that filthy, smelly, expensive, socially unacceptable habit again. I still have times that my mind tries to tell me that just one won't hurt. But we all know that's just not true. One of you told me that they travel in packs, and I've been there bef...
Howdy ICQ World. I just past a month nic-free. I can honestly say that I actually have 2/3 hours a day that I am not thinking about a craving. Thanks to the folks supporting this site. It keeps me reading, believing, and sharing.

Day 10 with absolute thanks. Day 9 started with a support call from a " professional " support worker which proceeded into a massive diference of opinion, being that when i told him i was day 9 and feeling great, he suggested thats good, but to feel better i should start NRT. I once again told him i was feeling great and had no use for NRT. His reasons being that the amount I smoked per day for 5...
I feel if I document it here, it'll hopefully stop me relapsing again!
I had 2 cigarettes in the last hour, I could've worked through it if I tried but in my mind I'd already decided to smoke. As soon as I had them I regretted it.
My nose is starting to feel stuffy and I can smell the stink on my hands and clothes. It didn't make me feel any better - but there's an underlying issue that's ...
Hey all, really quick one guys. Just touching base to say on track and loving life. I am sick with flu at the moment but have decided to take leave tomorrow to give myself a break and rest. My freedom is great
