I started smoking at 14 and after 25 years smoking my lungs were wrecked. I tried cold turkey, gums, sprays, patches, even hypnosis.
Nothing worked for longer than a couple of weeks.
The patched gave me a horrible rash and the gums made me feel like I was going to throw up. I have no idea what was in the sprays but it burnt.
5 years ago I found out about vaping.
In the space of a week I ...
I had tried all kinds of methods to stop smoking, patches, gum, cold turkey, nicotine inhaler etc etc. In the end the only thing that worked was a vape. I haven't even touched a cigarette in two years now. Admittedly I still use my vapouriser sometimes but I feel amazing. I can run 4 KMs in 20 minutes now. My wife actually picked up my vapouriser and she has quit aswell now. As did my brother. I ...
My name is Andrew.
I have 4 children and smoked over a packet a day for 32 years
I tried every way to quit including Champix, patches and sprays.
The only thing that has stopped me smoking for 18 mths now is Vaping. The Royal College of Physicians in the UK 100% endorses vaping and it is now in 2 UK hospitals to assist patients who wish to quick.
The easiest,safest and best thing I have don...
After reading Allen Carr's Easyway to Quit Smoking, as soon as I read that last chapter, put out the final cigarette - I haven't had one since. This book made me realize many things. WHY am I smoking? WHY am I letting myself be in simple terms, addicted to a drug that is destroying my health and my bank account at 22 years old. It made me see that substitutes like the gum or patches aren't going ...
I just wondered how much money we could put on the Money Tree by Dec. 25.
I will bet it will blow our minds. I am sure it was put to better use than blowing smoke.
Any money saved while on this site this year counts! I will publish the total collection before the New Year.
Good morning everyone.
I just finished reading Allen Car's book on quitting smoking. First of all, thank you to everyone who suggested reading it. I believe much of the material was beneficial to myself, and certainly to others who have read it.
Happiness, I believe it was you who got me rolling on the concept of "hating the cigarette"; the idea that we are not actually giving anythin...
My experience with the Forum is awesome. The Forum helps you talk to others who understand and who can inspire and support you. It's what gets me through sunrise to sundown . Patches help you get rid of the nicotine but friends help you through the other times
My first post just thought I should as I have read others and found them helpful. I an in my sixth week of no ciggs have smoked for upwards of 30 years.
Basically slowly cut cigs per day from 2 50g packs of tobacco per week to 1 every 3 weeks and then set a date to quit period. Have being off them now for 5 weeks with the use of Nicorette quick mist and eclipse mints.
I am finding wee...
11 months smoke free, thank you to everyone who has helped me make it to this point in my journey. I hope everyone have a great holiday season.
How our brains are lulled into something without thought. Have you ever considered some of the nursery rhyme lyrics that we loved. Humpty Dumpty, Ring around the Rosie was about people dying from the plague, Rock -a-bye Baby, and what about Jack and Jill? Jack fell down and broke his crown.
Those are pretty harsh for a child , yet all dolled up in a nice chant and animated cartoon to represent ...
