So after several relapses, I’ve taken time to think, reflect and have decided to start my quit date over again.
I am ready for a new day 1 of N.O.P.E and am determined to stay away this time. My triggers seem to be straight after work, I go to a shop, buy a pack and then Chuck them away as soon as I’m home and have smoked 2-3.
I am so over it. Over my addiction ruling my life, making me feel...
Hi I dont have any quit tips as I fail every time I try. I will share my story with all of you. I am 81 and have smoked for the last 60 years. I panic when I am down to my last cigarette, then I go an buy a packet, then I am so down on myself. I am an age pensioner so how can I buy a packet every day on my age pension, its for the money I could save that is why I really want to stop. Thanks f...
I have tried numerous times to quit but I believe mentally you have to be ready to quit - talking to others about there quit journey allows you put yourself in there shoes making it seem possible. Then it’s the constant thought of reminding yourself why you want to quit in the first place. It’s not easy but talking it out definitely helps I will try and try again until I can on day say no thanks ...
Hi 🙋♀️ I’ve tried many times to stop, but I really want too for many reasons. I am using a cut down smoking app. Just started 3 days ago, messed up one day but went right back. I’m really hopeful that it works this time, my quit date is May 4, Also this app is helping me to see day by day how many cigarettes I have and I’m glad to see the pattern of my smoking
I have just decided to quit social smoking - smoking when I drink. I cannot imagine ever having a good time again when I drink. I have tried to do this many times and failed. Does anyone have any tips? Hypnotherapy? Visualisation? Meditation? Stopping drinking for a while or changing to a new drink? Any advice would be welcomed.
Thanks for the check in. Yes 3 days after countless attempts not getting ahead of myself but am feeling okay. This time I’m trying not to do too much and getting plenty of rest. On minute hour at a time.
Well, as of now for the first time in 7 years I’ve gone a full 24 hours without nicotine in any form. It’s a step in the right direction, and I will continue taking steps to go further!
I’ve chosen to take champix and using my willpower managed to accomplish this step, unlike all my previous attempts that never got further than a few hours.
This is my 3rd attempt this year...First time I gave up for a month, second for a fortnight...Wondering if I go for longer this time...
Serial quitter for the last year. I have probably been smoke free longer than a smoker in this time but keep thinking I can have a few puffs. Need to be true to myself and no more sneaky puffs which leads to more and more. It’s in our hands and I want to be free and stop lying to everyone especially myself.
Hi everyone, today is my 4th day of being smoke free. 3 days 6 and half hours to be precise. I got a flu from today and i feel depressed for no reason. I dont want to smoke but i miss smoking so much. I feel very lost 🥺🥺
