Tomorrow is my planned quit day. Today I have spring cleaned my bedroom. Clean sheets and clean pillows. Tonight after showering and washing my hair I look forward to jumping into a smoke free bed. Hopefully this time I CAN QUIT FOR GOOD.
I have been trying to stop smoking for the past 1 year or so but i failed each time.
I have decided to go cold turkey and i will smoke my last cigarette after publishing this.
i hope and i want that it will be my last cigarette.
I started when I was in 8th grade. I was angry and depressed and suisidle. I wanted to get a break and have a distraction. Immediately after doing it I could see how I was changing and how I was distancing from my friends. They were scared of me. They didn't want to be around me because I was always high. Then one day after having just gotten a wax pen and being "off my rocker I got suspended fro...
Hello all, Today I start my first dose of Champix, I am anxious that I wont stop smoking with these but I have so much drive to push through I really hate being "the Smoker".
Any tips for a first timer on Champix
(I know about the possible side effects and will be monitored)
Day one again for me. I hope this time will be THE time. I find after a few days I stop having cravings but as soon as I have any alcohol I cannot control them and lose all willpower. I have a great marriage (non smoking husband) and wonderful kids and that HAS to be enough to stop this dangerous habit. Fingers crossed...
I am on day 4 and finding it hard. I haven't been sleeping much averaging 3 hours a night. Is this normal? I would like to hear the positives from people that have quit.

My coughing was really embarrassing as I work in a contact...
After chaining for 47 years I went cold turkey for 4 days. Thought I was so smart before having a giant meltdown & smoking 4 cigarettes while shaking with rage.
This morning, woke up happy again, told myself happy birthday, now put a patch on & get back up on the horse.
For the first time ever I'm not berating myself as a failure. Me thinks I'm a much happier more relaxed person today. Even if ...
Hi, I quit smoking 2 1/2 years ago (yay) but the trouble is I’m addicted to 4mg lozenges! Sometimes I’ve been putting another one in my mouth before finishing the last! I’m nervous about quitting them as I get anxiety and the horrible withdrawal feelings scare me. I know I probably use them as an emotional crutch as I did smoking too. I seem to miss them even 30 mins after not having one (unless ...
I feel devastated. I havent managed to quit so far. Not sure what to do. Price of cigarettes has just gone up again and its ridiculous. I cant afford it anymore. I NEED TO BUY HEALTHY FOOD INSTEAD.
While I may respond too much, it is my priveledge. I feel if I do not respond, someone might feel slighted. I think encouragement , a simple thumvs up means so much to some in the veginning of this journey. I commend all who find the strength to even try. I congratulate all who have succeeded and of course I support all along the journey to gaining freedom from smoking and staying free of smokin...
