Hi. I began smoking when I was 16. I first quit 6 months before getting pregnant at the age of 30. I did not smoke for 4 years. It was my most successful quit. I used the patch and online support. After 4 years, I began to have personal issues and smoked here and there. Long story short- I have been smoking on and off for awhile now. Within that time I had a 2 year quit. Ugh- then a major li...
Gotta get past the mental anguish of starting
I have smoked since I was 22yo, surprised at myself how quickly I became addicted. I have had a couple of cold turkey attempts where I became aggressive in my speech and physically. I have identified that I need a pacifier.
I have my first appointment on the 20th with my GP to get support for my journey. So far I have managed to cut down my 15-20 a day habit to 8-10 using a vape while I'm in pu...
I’ve been smoking since I was 16 years old and I just turned 54. It is something I’ve wanted to do for years but never tried. I did stop during my pregnancies but would pick them back up after. I work in a job that doesn’t allow smoking at work. So I go about 12 hours without smoking daily. As soon as I get home, I light up until bedtime and then smoke every morning.

I have been smoking for over 18 years now in my 30s and my health is going downhill, my bank account is feeling the pinch and I am just generally sick of being so reliant on something so disgusting, I've been so depressed that i have even started smoking in my house which I have NEVER done, and everything smells. I have my last packet in front of me and today I joined icanquit, NEXT STEP is to go...
I just found out I’m pregnant after a failed IVF attempt in February. I got my blood test results today and I want to make sure this baby sticks and grows. I’m scared that I’ll miscarry and that’s my trigger.
Day ONE here we go again. Attempt No 5 and hopefully the last. Bloody smokes are killing me and I can't breathe wearing the mask I have to in my job. Wanted to buy a pack when I finished the one I said was my last. Resisted today. I WILL resist tomorrow. I need my headspace to get stronger
So here I am again......Trying to quit for the 3rd time. I'm trying or rather I have to keep my plan in place
