4th attempt, longest was for 35 days by reading others stories, when i started to stop reading 2-3 days afterwards i would bust, so stay strong & committed and believe in yourself. Its all about you
ODAAT - Remember that "One Day at a time". I'm on Day 21; after 25 years of smoking. The difference on this quit this time, no nicotine replacement therapy. it was so much easier after Day 3. I think NRT just teases you and eventually becomes a habit. Just do it cold turkey.
Hard, yes; work it YES!
My reason for quiting this time is for my dad.I have already lost my mum and brother I have to be around for my dad.Some days it feels I have nothing to live for as I live with lymphoma hanging over me and that it could be back.I need to quiet once and for all.i went 12 months in 2018 and I think I can do it again.wish me luck.
Day 2 & going strong, I believe from cutting down to zero has helped me stay stronger from not going back.
With your help, I know I can achieve the best result. I have smoked for many years, I think about 45yrs. THANKYOU
Keeping in good spirit
My first day, first day in years that I have not had a cigarette. I feel like I want one, but I don't. I am going to beat this.
You were right, everyone. Thank you for commenting on my story, you were right. I hadn't made up my mind. I woke up to many nice and encouraging words from you all, and I think that was it.
Yknow, not just being nagged to quit, but being believed in that I could do i...
I have to do this. I'm 24, soon I'll be 25 and that means I've been smoking for 7 years. <br />Why can't I do this? I can't help it, not on my own. Maybe I can, but it doesn't feel like it.
I remember the day, the day I started. 27/12/2013. Two days before I began destroying myself was Christmas day, I'd separated from the first girl I had ever dated. No...
I'am 24 going on 25 years old and i have gone a full day without smoking. At certain points it was hard but i'm remembering how my father died of Lung Cancer and how it was now affecting me as well negatively.
A strong support team and the urge to not want to smell or taste like crap really moved to do this and i really want to never have one again :) I can't wait for the upcoming days, weeks ...
i had my first cigarette at 14 (i'm only 15 now). it all started off as a joke with a few friends at a party until we all decided we actually wanted to try it - before this i had only ever vaped with no nicotine. so one day we all went out together and got someone to buy us all a packet. after we got them we found a place to smoke them and ended up smoking nearly a whole packet each, it was reall...
I have been stalking this site for the last 24 hours and decided to join because I know I am finally ready to quit nicotine and would appreciate support and friendship for my journey. I’ll share my highlights from a life of smoking and attempting to quit so you know my history. I have fought this nasty addiction for decades and am sick of it. I know that it will take me out if I do no...
After reading Allen Carr's Easyway to Quit Smoking, as soon as I read that last chapter, put out the final cigarette - I haven't had one since. This book made me realize many things. WHY am I smoking? WHY am I letting myself be in simple terms, addicted to a drug that is destroying my health and my bank account at 22 years old. It made me see that substitutes like the gum or patches aren't going ...
