Hi Everyone. I am day 9 into taking Champix. Quut day is the 12th. Did anyone suffer from facial sweats, nausea and vomiting after having a smoke whilst taking higher dose tablet?
Just remember NOPE 😃
Hello everyone,I’ve had a beer tonight,I’ve stood outside the pub with numerous smoker friends,chatted,had a laugh,watched them smoking,and not once thought “god I’d love one of them”,I think I’ve broke the camels back,I truly am a none smoker 😀
I have hit 28 days off the darbs today! Feeling pretty compared to a couple of days ago when I was having a hard time breathing.
How's everyone doing?
Keep strong, team!
Just letting everyone know that you can make it. Just past 2 year mark and don't miss smoking one bit.
Happy Monday everyone
No more slips for me I made it I'm a nonsmoker. I never altered my dates after the slips and set backs I had because they are part of my journey in becoming a non smoker. I am in no way shape or form recommending slips because in the past they only led me back to being a smoker however for me this time they played a role in me becoming the non smoker I am today. If anyone o...
After reading today’s stories a song by Queen “we are the champions” spontaneously started playing in my head. It keeps playing and I can’t get rid of it. Congrats to all my fellow quitters because to quit this addiction you’ve got to be a champion.
Going cold turkey, last attempt lasted a year.
I’m here for a support network - ex smokers get it!
11 year smoker - started during first deployment with the Army.
Health scare - Couldn’t breath the morning after a 5km run, 2 days coughing up phlegm, coughed up a little blood also. Chest X-ray and stethoscope showed all clear, just waiting For blood test results. I’ll be asking for a Spri...
Hi everyone hope you are all staying strong and having a wonderful smoke free weekend.
It's great to not have that small lingure around me anymore or in my hair and clothes.
My partner is much happier and proud of me that I have come this far and continue to be a non smoker.
I did have my slip over 2 weeks ago now but as I said I will not go back to the start as it was so hard to stop the ad...
Today marks 6 months quit! I may not post a lot, but I come to this site weekly (sometimes daily) to keep me focused. I’m so thankful this site exists, and I have others I can relate to!! My anxiety is WAY better, and the freshness in the air almost brings tears to my eyes. NOPE.
Wounded tonight,After work we always pop for a quick pint on the way home to a pub close by,since we’ve been going in I was attracted to a very beautifull waitress there,well after a few weeks of having a bit of banter and stuff we exchanged numbers and tonight we’ve been messaging,it was all going well until I asked her if she smoked,she said”yes”and now I’m not interested but I don’t know what ...
I was out tonight and on the way home was so determined that When I got there was “just going to have one”. Then I got on here and just read stories. You are all so amazing the way you encourage everyone. It has helped me. Thank you all.
Morning everyone ,I had the worst night last night I hardly slept my mind was really active,but when I did sleep I remember dreaming I’d failed and lit a cigarette up in a beer garden with my friend,I woke up really fast but remembered the dream,I’m surprised I dreamed that as I don’t even feel like I would like one,feeling a bit flat today,but I’m sure I’ll snap out of it.Have a good day everyone
Think about your reasons for quitting as this leads to motivation then be determined. My doctor told me motivation is all that is needed to quit, i agree if the reason is big enough (throat cancer ect..) yes for sure that would motivate just about everyone. My reason was imagining i was on my death bed at a young age knowing it was my fault i have shortened my life and now its over. This was a st...
Hi all I'm not sure why but I'm craving badly as we speak I'm doing all I can to beat this craving but this 1 well it's a hard 1. I so t want 1 and I will not smoke 1 but serious big craving right now.

Today is my 5 month. Wow what a mission. I can’t believe this is really hard but I did it . Like I said before my anxiety is still there and the feeling if this is real is still her . I have to deal with it now . I take a lot of cbd so it helps me out. My breathing is ugh geting better I still have to take a deep breath all the time but it’s geting there day by day. Hope everybody is staying safe...
It’s only day four today but I am feeling proud of myself. I also just saw the NOPE mantra. I love it and have now got it stuck in my head. Good luck everyone and have a great fresh smelling day.
Hello, I am new to this group. I have been a smoker off and on since I was 16. I am now 46. I have tried several times off an on through the years to quit and have had some success, but have always gone back to it. I now have a 6 yr old granddaughter and my boys are 18 and 26. I want to be there for them as long as I can. Also, my husbands ex-wife just died from lung cancer (age 59). So, I ...
I am so pleased to say 109 days smoke free with 1 slip up which I Think is not really that bad for someone who that had no willpower atal
But obviously I do as I had enough power to take back control after slip up.
I am very proud to be almost at 4 months smoke free.
I think what keep me motivated now is the thought of how hard I worked to get this far smoke free.
It is not an easy addi...
Hello everyone my cravings are quite high tonight I dont know why. I am keeping busy by coming onto this site and reading stories and comments and commenting on stories and now writing a post. It sure beats having a cigarette and means once these urges pass I will still be a non smoker. Have a magical evening everyone.

175 days and feeling great! I’ve learned to accept that I have bouts of anxiety and I have learned how to deal with it best for myself. I’m a better dad now than ever, and have baby #3 on the way. I’m so glad smoking is not apart of my/our life’s!!

Finding it very hard tonight. Fighting it but cranky.
I’m on day 16 and still smoking! Today I didn’t smoke all day but have had 2 tonight. I feel like I’m failing at this and going to just keep smoking through the bad taste and not enjoying it because of the damn habit!
Start fresh in the morning after not smoking all night and also have a plan for the first day to stay busy
