So nearly a year since I first posted on here hoping it would help me to quit along with nicotine patches(used for 3 months). I’m still smoke free and although I haven’t posted in so long I still find myself on here every so often reading all your stories which spur me on. Looking back I was so worried the constant nagging my brain did urging me to light up. But the days are easier, the nagging h...
Hello, I am a 29 year old female. I started 6 years ago although I had been against smoking throughout my life. Long story cut short, I dont know when it got out of hand and I was at almost 20 a day. The lockdown got me to reduce. But not completely. I started facing health issues recently - chest pains, skin darkening, grey hair and I could see my life ahead. The worst of all? I could not share ...

I have realised I have passed 8 months smoke free. I am bloody proud of myself. I have done it w through covid and losing my marriage and the life I knew. It has made me realise I am a strong woman. And proud of myself. It makes me feel good to be able to share that with my I can quit family. I proud of the woman I have become. You can do it too.
Everyone's quit is different in some ways and in others we all have the same battles to fight.
As I reflect on 1000 days quit, I was lucky that my quit itself was unplanned which is not the norm. However when I did decide to stay off cigarettes after returning to familiar routines, the cravings flooded in but I had a streak to protect as a motivation.
I still get distressing dreams that I h...

Hi, today is Day 1 of starting the quitting process and I'm scared of failing. Smoking is just plain STUPID and that is one of the reasons I will stop.
