Will be quit for 9days at 9pm tonight. Cold turkey and strong will power ,even though my partner smokes I haven't had the urge.
I really thought I would want a smoke with my beers but I haven't, I think because I'm so determined and I'm ready in my mind
December 10, 2018. One of the best days of my life. The day! Had my last cigarette. I have dealt with more medical issues the last two years than ever before, and all because of smoking.
Friday, I had to have a breast biopsy. Nothing to do with smoking, I don't think.
Thank God the results came in negative for malignancy. I couldn't be more grateful to God, and for any and all prayers sent up o...
Today is the day! I've been taking Champix for the last 7 days and today is my quit day. So far it has been working great, whenever I light up and inhale I don't get any feeling from it, so why light up?
I've only smoked 3-4 the last view days, down from 25. My biggest downfall is that my husband continues to smoke. We've always smoked outside and just knowing he is going in the garden gives m...
I started preparing for a half marathon in next 4 months. So I desperately want to quit and I tried many times but failed. This time I wanted to use my full effort and concentrate only on up coming marathon
Just checking in to report I'm still on track and continue to be amazed that I am actually here today 1000 days quit. I was seriously a tragic smoker and failed my quit attempts many times and often thought it was sad impossible. It just goes to show that if you don't give on giving up this insidious habit, you will be free of the shackles one day. I can even have a boozy night around smo...
I wanted to say Thanks to Happiness, Nuts, PuffNoMore and Ravisca2003 for helping make it to this day. If not for your support not sure I could have gotten this far.
I have saved $3099.00 this far and plan to take a trip to the states next year with my daughters for a month. We should have enough to go shopping as well.
To all those who are quitting or thinking about quitting all I can say ...
On the 2nd of may it will be three years since my last cigarette. In the past three years my health has improved dramatically I ran a 5km marathon. Ive had baby number six and he was healthy and my heaviest baby. Ive been able to afford extra things for my children weve done things we could never afford to do before quitting. The thought of ever lighting another cigarette literally makes me sick ...
Hi everyone, I am happy to report today is my 100th smoke free day. With the achievement of this milestone I truly feel a sense Of accomplishment, because I know how difficult it was to say no to smoking in the early days of my quit. Looking back, the reason I can celebrate 100 Days Smoke Free, is because of all the mine fields of temptation I had to push through to make it to this point in time....
Hey guys first time posting. Right now the 4th day is starting for me. I have been constantly thinking about cigarettes. Right now I am at the gym, and I feel awesome. My breathing is already improving. Stay strong! No more smoking!
40 days as a non smoker, plenty of ups and downs on the way, but I seem to be doing it anyway. Happy Easter to you all
I am thrilled that I have actually managed to quit. I like reading posts still here and there and reading stories about others early on struggles helps me to stay on track and focused at all times. For me quitting was REALLY hard, so I never want to revisit that first 3 months ever again. I owe this website and all the good people on here so much for there support and for anyone reading this star...
10 days since I decided enough was enough and stopped cold turkey. Today has been the worst day of all. On the drive home, I found myself doing a lap of the supermarket carpark with the intention to stop and buy a pack. Luckily, my usual spot was taken. I took that as a sign and came home instead. Close call. Too close! Hopefully I can be stronger tomorrow!!
6 weeks on and still no smoking. The first few were weeks were challenging and you feel very vulnerable but my goal is never to pick up another smoke ever again. Keep busy and start walking! And looking after my grandson also keeps me on my toes. I feel great.
I’m on my third day, and my withdrawal symptoms have been very trying I’ve been feeling nauseous, dizzy and experiencing head aches, the withdrawals are very difficult and want to feel normal again but staying strong
I am so happy to share that it's been 7Months since I had my last cigarette.
I am travelling and in the same hotel where I traveled 7 Month ago after quit and was struggling like a addict to smoke. This time I have no such cravings.
Saw my Cardiologist on Friday. Thank God he told me everything looked great after my stress test.
I saw my regular doctor early this morning. She says my blood work looks great, except for my thyroid levels. Easy fix. Nothing to do with smoking.
Then I had an ultrasound at my surgeons office. Again, I believe all is well.
So, my health is great, super duper, wonderful. I am celebrating my 18 w...
I made it . 100 days. Yay. Thank you so much to every one who helped me on my quit journey. Your support and kind words really meant a lot. Thanks so much to Happiness, Broncor, and PuffNoMore. You have all been with me all of the way. I am now a non smoker. Nope.

Today is HARD
I have been using patches 21mg
Today I wanted to relax in a hot tub so hadn't put a patch on untill 3pm.
Its been and emotional rollercoaster, I have had to pull the will power out today!
Feel like crawling into a ball and hiding.
I refuse to go back I never ever want to feel like this again.
Counting down the days I need this to get easier.
I am at 124 days smoke free, or almost 18 weeks. I mentioned last week that I am having difficulties lately because of major upheavals causing major stress.
I haven't smoked and I am not going to but I am finding it hard to find something else to occupy my mind.
My husband still hasn't found a job and we have about 2 months before we have to start moving to-somewhere.
I can't work because I am...
I am nearly 5 weeks without a cigarette & I feel so much better. I have now got a little rescue dog & spend my $$ on her instead of cigs. Went to the shop last week to buy cigs & he said he no longer stocked my brand cause I hadn’t been in. Went to 2nd shop & same story. Decided to come home to Missy instead. Someone up there was looking after me. 🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏👻👻👻👻👻👻
lots of fruit and Zooper doopers plus cut a straw in half and hold in fingers or chew it
Hi everyone, I am 33 days as a non smoker. The last 3 days have not been easy as I needed to drop the night dose of Champix, I started cutting the night dose in half but eventually needed to drop it, because I was too tired with waking up about 3 times in the night. Strangely enough I had a dream on the first night of dropping the dose about a whole cigarette I could see it clearly. I cant remem...
Start writing and communicating here.
Today I went to a check up appointment for my dental cyst. They said that I should have a procedure removing it after all - dental cystostomy. I can't stop but wonder if me smoking is the reason it all started happening in the first place, but I'm sure it made it worse. So now, with two teeth less and one 'surgery' more I'm laughing at my old self - I started smoking because of stress... Treat yo...
Just remember that we are not having withdrawals after a few weeks. We are listening to that little addictive devil in our brain. It is trying so hard for you to take that next puff. Don’t let it win. It is trying to kill you. Imagine you are the hero of a horror movie. Everyone is hoping you win and kill that addiction.
Every day I smoked my breathing got that little bit worse.
<p style="text-align: left;">Hi! <br />I am 20 years old female, had been smoking for 3 and a half years now. I had root canal procedure around age 14. Last year, that same tooth gave me trouble, it gave me a cyst (dental apsces), I lost my tooth and continued with my life still smoking...
<p style="text-align: left;">Ten days ago, it all started again. I had another cyst, same place, stuck...
Changed my morning routine in which I find the hardest. Instead of waking up having a cuppa and cig first thing which I used to do. Today I jumped in the shower stuck a patch on quick mist spray had a healthy smoorhie & went out for a brisk walk with the dog.
Tomorrow I'm back in work any advice I would be grateful majority are smokers.
Hi everyone,I am happy to post that today is my 3 month smoke free milestone. When I look back at the beginning of my attempt to quit smoking I remember all the failed attempts, it was hard for me to make pass the first 24 hrs without smoking. Each time I failed it would set me back months before I tried again, this fight to be free fro nicotine only began to change for me when I stopped romancin...
