Hi. I have been smoking for past 5 years. I want to quit badly. I have 1 pack remaining. After that I am not going to get any cigarette. Could any one has any tips on how to deal with cravings. That would be great help. Thanks
I am on one week down on champix and stupidly thought I could quit with only one week of it in my system.
Although I do have the desire to quit, I need to be patient as I have been smoking for over 10 years now so a couple of weeks is not going to hurt. Champix has decreased my pleasure in smoking and from past experience will make the coming week a lot easier to quit as the pleasure will tur...
I am a 54 year old woman who has smoked for 36 years.
I have attempted quitting around 10 times over the past 20 years,managing to last 18months the last time I tried ( around 7 years ago) I notice how bad my skin looks,how much phlegm I have every morning and how much my apartment smells. So,armed with patches and determined to successfully wipe this addiction from my system,I am here.
Hi, I just joined the group here and hope I can be as successful as some of you have been. I'm actually seeking advice on the natural types of herbs that I may be able to use to help me quit.
I can't use any of the OTC or prescribed products, as I have tried them a found to be allergic to whatever is in them. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
Hi everyone, I am super new here and using all of your posts as my support network to help me through! Im day 8 now and haven't had a very easy day of it, the struggle is real. I've been reading Allen Carr and listening to podcasts to find my resolve, and trying to distract myself with work. I'm hoping it gets easier soon! Any tips gratefully appreciated!
Hello, I am new to this group. I have been a smoker off and on since I was 16. I am now 46. I have tried several times off an on through the years to quit and have had some success, but have always gone back to it. I now have a 6 yr old granddaughter and my boys are 18 and 26. I want to be there for them as long as I can. Also, my husbands ex-wife just died from lung cancer (age 59). So, I ...
I’m on day 16 and still smoking! Today I didn’t smoke all day but have had 2 tonight. I feel like I’m failing at this and going to just keep smoking through the bad taste and not enjoying it because of the damn habit!
Tomorrow is my planned quit day. Today I have spring cleaned my bedroom. Clean sheets and clean pillows. Tonight after showering and washing my hair I look forward to jumping into a smoke free bed. Hopefully this time I CAN QUIT FOR GOOD.
Hello all, Today I start my first dose of Champix, I am anxious that I wont stop smoking with these but I have so much drive to push through I really hate being "the Smoker".
Any tips for a first timer on Champix
(I know about the possible side effects and will be monitored)
Day one again for me. I hope this time will be THE time. I find after a few days I stop having cravings but as soon as I have any alcohol I cannot control them and lose all willpower. I have a great marriage (non smoking husband) and wonderful kids and that HAS to be enough to stop this dangerous habit. Fingers crossed...
