Did anyone else experience metal taste in their mouth and everything taste like metal?
I know that I am getting my taste buds back. But the metal taste is something new.

I follow the nope mantra .My quit was not as bad as I thought it would be ,but I know that if I get trapped again I will not be so lucky . I have gained so many benefits from not smoking ,the best is the freedom ,you can go anywhere with an...
Ms.Maxine congrats. Keep continue day by day. Drink lot of water. Eat veggies when u have craving. Don't drink alcohol. Don't roam around with smoker friends. Stay away from tension areas. While you have stress air inhale and exhale. If you have vicks inhaler in hand which will be better. You can do it. V all r with you.
30 years of smoking habit. Couple of times tried to stop thru cold turkey, but relapsed. Now on 129 days smoke free. Hope this time, I will be successful.
It is 2 years and seven months since I first shared a story here, just one line that I had given up.
In all this time I have tried to give up over twenty times. The best result was just over a month.
So here I am again in the first hour of giving up. Now more than ever the financial pressure of smoking is simply beyond my resources. Health wise it does lower my mood and of course general fitnes...
I have lot count at the amount of times I have tried to stop smoking.
Today is day 2, see whether I can succeed this time.
I am using a tea spoon of cream of tartar in a glass of fresh juice, morning and afternoon, meant to rid of any nicotine cravings.
So far so good.
I decided to check how long I have been quit for, and I am pretty stoked with the no. 477. It's so weird, I feel sometimes like it hasn't been that long...like it's only been a month. And i feel pretty proud. So everyone on a quit journey, You can do it!!! 🤩🤩🤩
Hi all. Its my first time here. I have been quite cold turkey for 6 weeks now after 40 yrs smoking
I am doing ok, but have a question that i cant find an answer to online. Since i have quit smoking my libido has gone, luckily im single so its not a problem, lol, but i found it a bit strange.
Was just wondering if anyone else has experienced the same.
Had been smoking for 50 years apart from a couple of short breaks...Anyone with a similar habit knows how hard it is to quit, besides which I have always considered it as one of the few things I do well.Smoking consists of basically two things - The Addiction to nicotine and the Habit....Sticking it in your mouth, lighting it, smoking it and sharing with your friends..Now the addiction is the eas...
Hi everyone just checking in I'm still on my journey it's hard not to keep count 1/11/19 I remember the last day I smoked a cigarette was before I had two teeth pulled on 1/11 they kept making a point to make sure to advise me not to smoke to avoid getting a dry socket and I just was so overwhelmed by the control anxiety it had over me I was more worried about not being able to smoke then I was ...
I have had more quit dates than I have bought cigarettes. Quitting isn't easy, but it is worth it. My main strategy is using the "day at a time" principle. I only have to get through today, I know from talking to friends that it will get better. I let go of any thoughts about having to quit for the rest of my life. Ultimately I will be doing that, but I will be doing it one day at a time, on...
Just checking in. 334 days of being a non-smoker. I'm so happy for myself. I should do something to celebrate my one year milestone in November. A spa day? A weekend getaway? What did you do to celebrate your first year?
Today is my 1st day here in this forum. I really need to just express what I'm feeling today, my 4th month without a smoke. I'm really craving one this last week for some reason, I really don't have any friends to explain this to, they do not smoke and don't get it .The one friend I have that is a smoker just wonders why I quit. So I thought I would express my feeling and maybe I would feel bette...
I can’t believe I’m at the 60 day mark. I’ll be super excited when I get to 365 days smoke-free, but everyday matters and small victories should always be celebrated..
Don’t forget to do something that makes you feel badass, all day.. Whatever that means to you!
1600 days smoke free cold turkey. 45 years and I would never have believed my determination. I just love the new numbers. Some are ordinary and some are so exciting. Hope you enjoy your journey as much as I do mine. So amazingly incredible. I am flabbergasted,
shocked, dumbfound, taken aback, bowled over, knocked for six, floored, astonished, amazed, astounded, stunned, flabbergasted,
G'day All, I have been watching this site for a while now having quit 108 days ago. It's been a hard journey and I am sure from reeding the posts by the long term non smokers I still have a long way to go. to all you who are starting out or in the early days of your Quit, stay focused remember who, what and why you are doing this
after 30 years of smoking I truly got tired of being winded and tired of smelling like an ashtray! I got tired of cigarettes controlling me!
Today is day 17 and I've done it all cold turkey! I'm a little dizzy today and have insomnia but I am taking each day minute by minute.
Hi everyone today day 83 and feeling great,just want to say to all the quitters stay positive.
Thank you Allen Carr 😘 40 days today and still smoke free.
The cough has gone but still shortness of breath.
38 years of being a slave to the coffin nails.
Congratulations to all that have quit or even thinking of quitting.
It’s been 5 blissful weeks of non smoking
That too being with my best friend for almost 8 working hours everyday and he is a serial smoker
It’s feels amazing and liberated
Guys just push yourself to non smoking environment till you forget that once upon a time you too were a smoker
I can assure you will feel amazing
All the best guys
I am watching the v8 supercar coverage at Bathurst and iCanQuit is advertised everywhere. They even have a helicopter cam. Thousands of people watch Bathurst, and if it helps people quit smoking, then i think that its great. Go Lowndesy 🏁
After smoking for 35 years and trying everything else there is to try l made an appointment and saw Michael. Tomorrow l am 4 weeks smoke free and very confident that l won't ever smoke again. I still felt like smoking at times but found it much easier to resist and just not have one. I highly recommend this to anyone.

I just wanted to check in and let you know I am 10 days short of being smoke free for a whole year 😃
If you asked me a year ago if I would/could succeed I would have laughed.... but here we are and I truely couldn’t be prouder of myself! Thanks to willpower and Zyban!
As I am 27, I decided to quit because of my health and fitness. I'm not quite as mentally sound as I could be -- trust me, I remember not smoking and there is a difference in actions. (And yeah there is a difference now and again). In the time I smoked, my actions never really had a valid reason to happen. Maybe I have a disorder, but that calmed down and now I feel so much better.
It has not been one bit easy to meet the demands of a smokefree life. It is easy in some respects, but I seem to fail in others. I am not over the cravings, but it seems to be getting better because I eat something or just have a glass or sip of water when they happen. I have become hyponatremic though, which means basically that I am over diluting my body. I have low sodium and chloride. It is h...
10 days ago I started on Champix to quit smoking. I have tried Champix in the past with no luck due to nausea but after failed attempts of cutting down, cold turkey and NRT over the past few months I’d had enough and took my first tablet 10 days ago.
This time on Champix I’ve made sure I have something to eat before having my morning and evening tablet and the nausea is almost no...
7 days ago I was prescribed Champix as I decided I had to quit smoking as I require open heart surgery. I was asked if now was a good time to quit by the doctor (I also have bipolar). He feared due to the stress, both mentally & physically it may cause complications in the lead up to my surgery. Mind you I don’t know when the surgery will happen but I have decided to be prepared. So in conjunctio...
