I am sure many have grown tired of my long responses and repetition.... however, some newbies come without knowledge, and my post and other valuable posts about the mindset, and other great quitting information by myself and other members has been long buried. I once had a comment that someone was quit smoking for about 8 weeks before realizing there was the psychological part of a quit which we ...
Finally the step towards quitting a very bad addiction of smoking. Funny enough I cannot stand the smell of a cigarette and always uses hand sanitisers to get rid of the smell after a smoke. Its my 4th day on champix and I had funny feelings of painful stomach cramps and a runny tummy. My GP never warned me about any side effects, but I do trust his judgement. I can feel a difference in my habit ...
I really want to quit as I am so done with smoking. I’m so worried and I have no idea how! Anything I should use or take to help start quitting?

Me and my husband have been trying to quit for the past year and now that I am pregnant, yesterday was day 1 of our quit journey. Over the last 12 months I have cut back from 40 cigarettes to ten cigarettes per day.

Im trying again tomorrow, I’m going for my last one. Wish me luck
I am 2 days, 20 hours and 22 minutes into my quit and i am proud, taking it minute by minute hour by hour and day by day, i find keeping track of this helpful as it is a reminder of how far i have come and that its not worth throwing that time of being smoke free away.
Time means alot to me now i am a mother. 😁
And smoking was stealing so much time from me. I am proud of the t...
I have, and am working on, a plan this time round. This will be about my 15th attempt. I'm going to use as many resources available hat I can access. I don't want to keep making excuses to stay addicted. I want to have more reasons to live, and live a better more fulfilling life of fitness and exercise. I want to feel strong in my life, not weakened by addiction.
