Im on day 2 not smoking, using nicotine patches and quick mist mouth spray.
I've had numerous failed attempts over the 22 years of smoking, always cold turkey which was miserable for myself and everyone around me.
The patches seem to help, don't feel so edgy. I've been planning this quit day for some time I've put my name down for half marathon at the end of the year so have a focus.
Today I started my Quit journey. I am going Cold Turkey as I am sceptical about stop smoking aids. I am 66 and have been smoking on and off since I was 17. My hubby is helping me, he gave up about 30 years ago. My one tip is "one foot in front of the other" every day I don't smoke is one step closer to quitting forever.

Hi, my name is Nathan
I'm 46 and recently I was diagnosed with COPD. I quit virtually straight way after the doctor told me. I quit for seven days but unfortunately I cracked and even with the knowledge of this lung condition of mine I took up smoking again. I'm now going to quit again tomorrow. this is a wretched habit and I've found that it is very hard to stop even after being diagnosed wit...
I have used Champix before, and it was the only product which helped me at least for 5 years. I only had a morning dose with no evening as I had nightmares. Now I use the double dose and take the evening dose earlier, I still have trouble sleeping and wake up very early, which makes me a little tired during the day. I don't know whether its the medication or lack of sleep. I am now on my usual bu...
Hi everyone .. after 30 years of smoking and the merry go round of half hearted quit attempts, I’m back for another go. What’s different this time is that I have consciously built my support networ and been more transparent about quitting and the reasons why. My main reasons are health and money. I want to breathe easier and experience the rush of a truly deep inhale, I want to wake up witho...
First day without a packet of cigs near me. Yesterday I was quite sad in a way, plenty of self talk and a plan for breakfast which changed when I got up. Its early yet, but have changed the radio to relaxing and happy old fashioned music, and found myself singing (to my dog) she liked it! I hope my happy mood stays with me today.
I am going to use the memory of enjoying my last quit smoking attempt. I returned to smoking due to work place stress which I’m ready to face again.
Last time I quit, cold turkey, hard, but stopped for 28yrs, started again, emotional reasons. Harder this time, using NRT, & willpower, having a prob with patches, they fall off. Any advice would be appreciated. thanks
Well I am not quite sure how I feel. I guess it is like I am walking away from an sad old friend who if I look at it is not a friend.
I am a person who enjoys being alone so leaving this sad old friend will be a good step to being alone.
