It's now the 23rd day without a cigarrete and I'm going through really bad withdrawal symtomps. I used to smoke roll ups, about 15 / 20 a day and starting the day with coffee and to cigs before getting ready for work. I am 35 and have been smoking for 20 years. I've been having some chest pains for maybe 6 months and decided that it was now a good time to stop.
The first week was fine, may...
So I have been 'wanting' to quit for years. I don't think I have gone more than a day or maybe a week without a cigarette. BUT this is the first time I have sat down and read this entire website.
My willpower sucks. I have read you can train your willpower so I am going to start with that.
Things that I worry about when thinking about quitting.

Today marks day 7 on Champix.
I had set my quit date for next Sunday but TODAY choose itself to be the day I quit. Not entirely sure how I feel about not getting the chance to say goodbye but perhaps its better this way.
So far champix has been okay! A bit of nausea in the morning if I don't take it with food. I have been sleeping really deeply and my dreams are a little more vivid but nothin...
Hello everyone I decided to quit 27 days ago after a news article about covid 19 and smoking literally scared me to the max.
I am 27 and smoked for around 9 years (stopped twice when I was pregnant) and then started again when the children were a few months old. I smoked around 5-10 a day.
I'm on day 27 and had it all, dizziness for a couple of days to start with, insomnia, sore throat, si...
I lost the 20kg I needed to, and maintained that weight loss for 3 months, prior to quitting. Concurrent with quitting, I have continued my weight maintenance program. Doing things in this order paved the way for me to quit without stressing about weight gain.
I've been using the money I save from quitting to justify buying: nicotine lozenges; significantly better quality and more expensive cut...

Hi, I quit smoking 11 years ago after 13 years of smoking. My husband purchased a packet last year for fun at a party, we then quickly became hooked. Now 11 months smoking and I plan on quitting again in 2 days. I have had 4 quit attempts since starting back, some for 4/5 days. Feeling like a silly idiot for starting again and needing to go through the process again. My mother was also diagnosed ...
I’ve just been reading all of your stories and support for and encouragement of one another; super motivating so thank you all. Quitting after so many decades feels possible.
I’m 50 and have been a “occasional/ social smoker” more or less since I was 17 with a few years/ months in between. I find it so hard to relate to most quitting support and materials as I smoke 5-10 a week max. I always feel so guilty about the damage I’m doing to my health but find it so hard to give up.
It’s something I know I need to to do but so scared to do it.
I’m 31 and only started fully smoking a little over a year ago.. really stupid decision.. what started off as an occasional smoke break at work has now become a full on addiction.
I always think about quitting but weirdly I find ways to convince myself it isn’t THAT bad.. and to be honest I’m now just super duper afraid of the side...
