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 it has been a week without a smoke. I feel ok !!! Not great yet but ok. After day 3 I felt a lot better. The crosses lined up on the calander for each non smoking day look great. I am commited to go the journey because I know 1 smoke and I will be back on them.
The cost is incredible. $40 for a pack. Feel like such a fool. What’s amazing is how you justify it. You won’t buy a nice $150 shirt cause it’s way to expensive, but does not even enter the radar spending $200 plus a week on bloody smokes. So angry with myself
Hi all, I have been smoking for 35 years. When I was younger i was a very heavy smoker. I have tried to give up many times but have always got back on them. Day 1 is done and now into day 2. I am more determined than ever. It is my time to quit. My wife smokes but I have given up before with the smokes in the house. I feel like garbage but I know that will pass. I am 53 and have had enough of the...
I woke up on my son's first birthday and reilsed I was over the smell and cost of it. I couldn't really enjoy the party without blowing smoke over everyone their
Hi fellow quitters!
I'm a long time smoker that wants to quit.
Over the past few months I've managed to cut back from 30 to 10 cigs a day. I'm pretty proud of that but I just can't seem to keep reducing it to "0".
So, today, is Day 1 of 7 using NRT (e-cig).
Having tried this method before (obviously it didn't work for me then), next week it's Champix.
If I can stop cigs/NRT/meds by the end...
So once again i am quitting. I have tried several times before & have done really well for months, but i need to kick it for good, i want to kick it for good. My kids don't know i smoke, my husband hates it & no other family members know. I'm sneaky. I hide, & I'm sick of it. I hate smelling of it & the money wasted on them is getting beyond a joke. It's my 47th birthday today & this is my presen...
I am so desperate to give up! My feelings right now are ones of failure & feer. My heart is racing! I feel like Im going to loose my best friend, but I need to say goodbye to them for ever. Omg, Im so anxious right now!!
I chose tomorrow as my quit date, cold turkey! I know I am going to struggle, as I am a heavy smoker & I really enjoy it.
Tomorrow is a new day & I know it is going to be tough...
I am looking for tips and advices. I don’t smoke but my partner does, about 10-15 cigarettes a day.
We have been together for 3 years now and smoking has been a huge issue for us and has put us apart.
I have been trying to make him quit for the past 2,5 years with no luck. I know He needs to do it for himself and not for me, but he lives his life as it comes, thinking that tomorrow could...
I have attempted numerous times to quit smoking using the cold turkey method, i only get to a week or two then relapse because the inner feelings of frustration and anger occur and i usually cannot stand myself lol..... This time i have decided to use NRT method for the first four weeks whilst cutting down gradually in an attempt to break the habit, then plan to withdraw from the nicotine patches...
So yesterday was Day 1 of not smoking or nicotine. I did pretty good not think about it. I had used the patch to taper down the week before and I think that helped.
BUT I had a bit of an emotional breakdown and ugly cried and felt really irrational and emotional. I think my boyfriend was super confused. I am sitting at work today and feel like I might start crying and I am feeling some depress...
