Okay so it’s hard second go
My quit journey begins tomorrow! I am going cold turkey as I’ve tried reducing in the past and ended up lying to myself and others around me.
I’ve been thinking about quitting a lot lately and kept pushing it to the back of my mind or finding excuses.
My big step was today saying ‘I need to go to the shop to get ciggies’. When I got to the shop I said ‘no you’re can do this and you will’ so I...
I hope I'm posting in the right area. But I have quit smoking for 14 days now, and I know that I am still in the early stages.
I can handle the cravings but I cannot handle the out of nowhere depression and the crying, even though it is not an everyday thing, IT IS NOT WHO I AM. But when it does happen I cant control it and it is starting to take a toll on my husband emot...
Hi everyone. I’m on here again because I just can’t seem to quit 😢 I’m suffering from depression at the moment as well as stressed. I want to quit but it doesn’t seem like a good time to do so. I need a lot of encouragement but I’m not getting that at home as I don’t want to bother others as they all have enough to deal with. I’m at my wits end with smoking & trying to loose weight. I’m on here ...
It's now the 23rd day without a cigarrete and I'm going through really bad withdrawal symtomps. I used to smoke roll ups, about 15 / 20 a day and starting the day with coffee and to cigs before getting ready for work. I am 35 and have been smoking for 20 years. I've been having some chest pains for maybe 6 months and decided that it was now a good time to stop.
The first week was fine, may...
So I have been 'wanting' to quit for years. I don't think I have gone more than a day or maybe a week without a cigarette. BUT this is the first time I have sat down and read this entire website.
My willpower sucks. I have read you can train your willpower so I am going to start with that.
Things that I worry about when thinking about quitting.
*Willpower or lack of..
*My mental health is...
Today marks day 7 on Champix.
I had set my quit date for next Sunday but TODAY choose itself to be the day I quit. Not entirely sure how I feel about not getting the chance to say goodbye but perhaps its better this way.
So far champix has been okay! A bit of nausea in the morning if I don't take it with food. I have been sleeping really deeply and my dreams are a little more vivid but nothin...
Hello everyone I decided to quit 27 days ago after a news article about covid 19 and smoking literally scared me to the max.
I am 27 and smoked for around 9 years (stopped twice when I was pregnant) and then started again when the children were a few months old. I smoked around 5-10 a day.
I'm on day 27 and had it all, dizziness for a couple of days to start with, insomnia, sore throat, si...
I lost the 20kg I needed to, and maintained that weight loss for 3 months, prior to quitting. Concurrent with quitting, I have continued my weight maintenance program. Doing things in this order paved the way for me to quit without stressing about weight gain.
I've been using the money I save from quitting to justify buying: nicotine lozenges; significantly better quality and more expensive cut...
