I'm new to this, but I thought that after 43 day without smoking I needed to try something to keep me going. I'm 60 years old and have smoked since conception, since my mother smoked during pregnancy, and my dad smoked all the while I was going up. I took my 1st puff (not second hand) at age 6. Started smoking everyday at the rate of a pack a day when I was 16. I have tried to quit many...
Day 2 & going strong, I believe from cutting down to zero has helped me stay stronger from not going back.
With your help, I know I can achieve the best result. I have smoked for many years, I think about 45yrs. THANKYOU
Keeping in good spirit
My first day, first day in years that I have not had a cigarette. I feel like I want one, but I don't. I am going to beat this.
You were right, everyone. Thank you for commenting on my story, you were right. I hadn't made up my mind. I woke up to many nice and encouraging words from you all, and I think that was it.
Yknow, not just being nagged to quit, but being believed in that I could do i...
I have been 31 days quit, its been a struggle with stress and anxiety but i am handiling it.
Since i been quit i no longer suffee pain and numbness no dr could figure out, i gained weight (49 to 55kg) and generally look well. I quit cold turkey.. I also been rewarding myself with the money i would spend on smokes on myself like new camera gear etc. My 6yr old is so proud, my strength and my supp...
I have to do this. I'm 24, soon I'll be 25 and that means I've been smoking for 7 years. <br />Why can't I do this? I can't help it, not on my own. Maybe I can, but it doesn't feel like it.
I remember the day, the day I started. 27/12/2013. Two days before I began destroying myself was Christmas day, I'd separated from the first girl I had ever dated. No...
I busted back on the gasbers today

Also tomorrow is another mile stone for me which i wasnt sure i would make but it will be 5weeks (35days)that i have been on my quit journey woop wooop 😊
I’m 52 and started smoking from the age of 15. I’m an asthmatic with heart arrhythmia and not doing myself any favours to my health or the back pocket for that matter. Tried on numerous accounts without success. Smoking has taken its toll over the years and not sure if it’s failure that’s stopped me trying over again or the fact after a meal, coffee or stressed a cigarette is my best friend. Coll...
I'am 24 going on 25 years old and i have gone a full day without smoking. At certain points it was hard but i'm remembering how my father died of Lung Cancer and how it was now affecting me as well negatively.
A strong support team and the urge to not want to smell or taste like crap really moved to do this and i really want to never have one again :) I can't wait for the upcoming days, weeks ...
Im only at the very beginning of my quiting journey. Its been 3 days since i had my last cigarette (feels like longer lol). Im using patches, which actually seem to be helping a teeny bit. I definitely feel better than what i did when i attempted to quit cold Turkey a few months ago.
I've needed to quit for a long time due to my health, but the stress of everything i had going on m...
