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.
Day 56 (week 8)nicotine free.
such an achievement for me.
i once found going an hour with out a cigarette difficult.
so very pleased with the progress i have made.
thank you all for the support you have so freely given.
Entering day 6, got to thinking about how i was feeling the day before i stopped smoking to how i feeling now after 5 days of freedom. i remember the lethargy, no motivation except to light up then the coughing and phlegm while i was "enjoying the first 1 of the day" What a joke, my old pal Nic Tine allowed me to lie to myself again and again. No prizes guessing who is not my old pal anymore. In ...
Day 35 Today of no smoking. Day 1 nicotine free. Today I ditched the lozenges, I told myself time to take the plunge and yep no guts, no glory. I've been at this stage before and know what to expect, a bit of discomfort for a few days and then onwards and upwards. I have felt a bit stressed today if I'm really honest, but not rattled. I know that this is a phase that will pass and I'm proud to sa...
I went 20 days without a smoke and slipped up on the weekend
Tomorrow I start my quit plan
I know I can beat this crappy addiction and everyone's stories are encouraging this time I'll have it beat
Name is set as trying
As i will not stop trying
4th attempt, longest was for 35 days by reading others stories, when i started to stop reading 2-3 days afterwards i would bust, so stay strong & committed and believe in yourself. Its all about you
ODAAT - Remember that "One Day at a time". I'm on Day 21; after 25 years of smoking. The difference on this quit this time, no nicotine replacement therapy. it was so much easier after Day 3. I think NRT just teases you and eventually becomes a habit. Just do it cold turkey.
Hard, yes; work it YES!
