Hi Y'All! I quit Feb 6th and was 13 days into my quit when I relapsed on the 13th day because I dropped my phone in the toilet and was freaking out about it. So stupid and silly of me to blow the whole thing up in my head and start smoking again. So I smoked for 3 days and then I quit again, now I'm on day 6 of my quit today. I learned that I was a little too confident about my first quit an...
Im new to this community so I thought I’d start by sharing my past experiences.
I first decided to quit in 2019. I lost a loved one in 2018 which sort of pushed me off the edge. It was easy to drown my sorrows in 2-3 packets of smokes, junk food and alcohol.
During my first attempt I did use Champix but I substituted normal cigarettes for herbal ones. I managed to stay smoke free...
I have smoked for nearly 38 years. I'm embarrassed to admit this. I fact, I have tried to not think about how long I have smoked. I need to quit. I survived breast cancer and should have quit then. Now I'm starting the constant disgusting cough with phlegm. Its time. I'm scared because I enjoy smoking. Always have. My triggers will be coffee, love my first smoke of the day with fresh coffee. I am...

Today is my first day of quitting smoking. I have smoked for over 40 years and I’m really scared. I have asthma and my lung function is decreasing. I’m 64 years old and I already feel like crying. I need support but live alone. I would love to hear other peoples stories. Oh yes I have a Nicotine Replacement Patch on and am planning on tapering down from 20 cigarettes per day to none. Did anyone e...
I stopped smoking 20 days ago and it's been a bit of an emotional roller coaster since then. I find myself bursting in to tears every now and then for no reason that I can think of. I don't feel tempted to smoke, but I am strongly aware of missing something. I feel adrift, restless, disconnected and also most things feel kind of meaningless and pleasure less. To be honest, I think I'm either gett...
