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.
We've had a lot of discussions on different ways and tools to use to Quit.
We've all had our say.
We've all got our beliefs.
We've all got our preferences.
I think the main thing is we all want to give up Smoking and being a slave to the addictive drug Nicotine that was ruling our minds and lives and well-being.
Personally I think Vaping is still smoking and although I don't believe ...
I have a problem of severe anxiety about my heart and feel any day can have a heart attack/ cardiac arrest. I smoked 3-7 cigarettes a day.
Its been 5 days since I have quit now and whenever I feel like smoking, I check my heart rate and if it is above 90 I feel concerned and my mind tells in if I smoke, it will go above 100 leading to severe risk to my heart
If is less that 90 then...
I’m new to this idea of joining a website to help me quit, I’ve cut down to 3-4 a day and intend to make that 0 by the 1st of January 2020. Thanks to all the encouraging people who share their struggles and successes.
I am almost 52 years old and smoked cigarettes for 42 yrs.
I started smoking at the age of 8. I began doing it regularly from the age of 15 where i progressed to smoking about 35-40 cigarettes a day by my early 20's.

I developed a very persistent smoker’s cough that got progressively worse as...
Over 6.5 years ago I quit inhaling combustible tobacco. I’d tried everything prior. Cold turkey, Patches, Gum, Medication, Hypnotherapy... you name it I’d done it. A friend introduced me to vaping and the minute I tried it, I knew this would work for me. I purchased a unit and liquid and from the moment it arrived I have not touched a cigarette since. Over the next year I weened myself down from ...
I have given up on giving up
I have been a heavy 30+ a day smoker for near 17 years. I am now, for the first time, 42 days ciggarette free thanks to vaping. Already i have noticed a difference in my health. My skin, eyes, gums, less phlegm, easier breathing and less snoring. I'm less irratable and less lethargic. Luckily I have the options for flavoured E juice because I think having tobacco flavoured for me personally would...
Oh my gosh. I have not had internet for what seems like forever. It's been 2 or 3 months since I last checked in. I hope this finds all of my friends on here doing well-and not smoking.
Today is the 1 year anniversary of my surgery and quitting smoking. My health is amazing and I love being a non-smoker!
Yesterday my husband took me out and got me a new tattoo for my anniversary.
He has had a...
Tonight we seemed to have attracted a number of vape users and supporters. While all points of view are to be respected we all have to consider all the points and decide what is the best for you as an individual as all quits are different.
These four who came forward within the space of a few minutes to support each other seems strange to me. All four joined today. All four claim to be happil...
