I have been excited to write 7 days on this forum. I have been here many times before, what always gets me back onto cigarettes is that I don’t have cravings necessarily but reward thinking. Thanks to all of your stories, I have some real treasures in my belt now to stop that, for instance someone wrote of week three being hard and month three. Well, I have felt that in the past as well, but this...
Hello everyone, this is my first day on the process of quitting. I have attempted to quit many times in the past but I can’t stand the feelings of guilt, shame and worries about my health anymore. I have been trying to quit for months now and manage to avoid cigarettes for a few hours until the night comes and I fail again, recently the worst has been not having a smoke in the morning before begi...
2020 was my quit year and yes it was the whole year. I would start day 1 then by day 3 I would be really struggling so why not just have a couple of puffs to get through.

I read about the efficacy of iCanQuit and figured that I could use much of the process to curb my TV watching. So, if you will have me, I am eager to contribute to the conversation a...

Hello all 😬
I’m so glad I found this forum. I need all the positive reinforcement I can get.
Today is day 31 of me being cigarette free after quitting cold turkey. It’s not easy as I had to shake myself three or four times from driving to the store and buying a pack. I managed to stop myself though and feel great full for that as my cravings are gone.
I have a feeling it’s going to be ...
