I am 39 years old... I have been smoking since my teens. I've "attempted" to quit a few times but never made it past a few days. My heart wasn't in it. I wasn't quitting because I wanted to. But now I am! And I WILL succeed! Cigarettes have controlled me for too long. Now I control myself! I'm tired of waking up and reaching for them before I've even opened my eyes. I'm tired of smelling so horri...
I am 23 years old and I started smoking when I was 19. I never expected to be a "smoker." When I started college I took a lot of pride in the fact that I didn't smoke. Unfortunately, I ended up being around people who smoked often, and even people that would buy cigarettes for me when I was trying to quit. I certainly don't blame those people, but I do regret letting others decide the course of m...
First time posting, but I am really excited that I have made the two week mark and have not touched 1 smoke. This time around, I am finding myself a lot stronger and ignoring cravings. I think my mindset is different this time around :)
I am also amazed at how much more time I have!

I read Allen Carr's book about 3 months ago and for some reason it did not resonate wi...
Hello everyone! I am 32 and I started smoking at 18. I smoked my last cigarette right before having a tooth pulled(6-25) and decided to use that as a platform to quit. I am using the patches and I am on 21mg. Although the patches help a lot, it's still very hard at times. My anxiety is driving me crazy. Also, I have never really had sinus issues but I definitely am right now, chest pains started...
Hi I am a newbie here and am pleased to announce I stopped smoking mid April 2020. The Covid 19 was my reason beacause the only time I left home was to go and buy cigarettes. So with only 6 cigarettes left in a pack and another trip looming to buy more ciggies I decided NO today I stop smoking, so finished off the pack I had. Have not had another cigarette since. I do though vape and this has...
