Giving up coz I can. When overseas smoke flavoured cigars. Australia wants us to give up but more ppl will scrounge for butts or hit up cars for change. All anti smoking aids should be tax free (or gst).
Today is day 25 on Champix and Day 24 of last cigarette. Problems I face is stomach cramps and nausea but it all goes away after an hour. I am generally an anxious person so started controlling my mind wandering off to overthinking since I am on Champix. My main trigger is feeling bored. Whenever I am alone at home or I have nothing to do i feel like going for one. So I started watching all the l...

Hi Quitters. I’m a noob quitter 20 times over. Signed up yesterday. I’ve set a quit date of 23 March. I plan to cut down over the next 3 weeks from 25+ per day. Is that too quick? I wonder if there’s any useful tips for cutting back?
Day 1 for me today. I have tried many many times to quit in the past and 3 months has been the longest. I already feel anxious but I am also determined to kick the habit. Good luck everyone.
I look at my kids and think why do I do this? Im 34 and i feel so unfit. When you cant run cause your outta breathe it needs to change. So here I am. Week 3 of champix and picked my quit day 7 days ago. I have had 2 slips but im feeling great.

I need help, badly.
I was a smoker until I fell pregnant in October of 2017. I managed to stay smoke-free until a few months after my daughter was born. In the 18 months since then I’ve tried to quite a handful of times, once I managed to go for 10 whole weeks. But I always manage to convince myself to go back to it. I feel weak and guilty and ashamed.
After reading Alan Carr’s book I gave up t...
Hello again, finally took the plunge two weeks ago and have no doubt my last smoke was Thursday night the 6th of February.
I,m not going to allow myself to become complacent with my success, as I have let myself get hooked from just one Puff before and will not fall into that trap ever again.
My advice to those who havent Quit yet is to make a plan, set a date for your last one and dont loo...
Hi you good things,
I'm on day 13 without smoking. I'm feeling kind of antsy. Well, a bit aggressive. Luckily I live alone, so after pacing and general swearing and looking for a way to curb this, I thought I'd check in with people who are on the same journey. OK. Cheese has calmed me.
