Welcome to the iCanQuit community this is your opportunity to share with your fellow community members any tips, stories or advice you may have around quitting smoking or staying quit.
Well, last time I was on this site I was feeling pretty good, but unfortunately I took up the evil habit again. I don’t know if this will be my final successful effort to quit for good, but I certainly hope so.
Have been smoking only 2years.Started out as a rebellious act then turned into a coping mechanism. Now not feeling so great and want to stop but not finding it easy to stop. I have read the book Easy Way by Allan Carr. I understand the method but not sure why I don’t feel ready to Quit or i am just afraid to Quit.
Has anyone had a similar experience?

Hi My nickname is Nuts because i was nuts to take up smoking. I have smoked for over 20 years and enjoyed it. But the time has come to quit. First i cut down to 5 a day , and then started using patches. Very determined. First day easy. Second day hard. Got a bit better after that. Today is day 7. Struggling a bit, but hanging in there. Have to keep busy. Hope tomorrow will be a bit better

I am back again. I have been having more trouble breathing lately and currently have bronchitis and a bad cough. I tried to quit about 6months ago but failed miserably.

I feel really lousy about all t...

Just started quitting smoking a week ago, on the Champix. My body is in detox mode, chesty cough, sweating, and quite tired all the time atm. I'm drinking heaps of water which I hardly ever did. One thing that irritates me is the constant eating, but happy that it's the fruit I'm snacking on. Waiting to get through the first month and hoping the sweating subsides and more energy levels, which wil...
Day 1 of attempting not smoking. My chest is so bad, I can hardly breathe. Coughing continuously. I think it's too late but I need to stop. I've had 1 cigarette with coffee today. This will be so hard. I'm very anxious, but I know I can do this.
