Hello, I am a 29 year old female. I started 6 years ago although I had been against smoking throughout my life. Long story cut short, I dont know when it got out of hand and I was at almost 20 a day. The lockdown got me to reduce. But not completely. I started facing health issues recently - chest pains, skin darkening, grey hair and I could see my life ahead. The worst of all? I could not share ...
So after several relapses, I’ve taken time to think, reflect and have decided to start my quit date over again.
I am ready for a new day 1 of N.O.P.E and am determined to stay away this time. My triggers seem to be straight after work, I go to a shop, buy a pack and then Chuck them away as soon as I’m home and have smoked 2-3.
I am so over it. Over my addiction ruling my life, making me feel...
Hi 🙋♀️ I’ve tried many times to stop, but I really want too for many reasons. I am using a cut down smoking app. Just started 3 days ago, messed up one day but went right back. I’m really hopeful that it works this time, my quit date is May 4, Also this app is helping me to see day by day how many cigarettes I have and I’m glad to see the pattern of my smoking
Thanks for the check in. Yes 3 days after countless attempts not getting ahead of myself but am feeling okay. This time I’m trying not to do too much and getting plenty of rest. On minute hour at a time.
Serial quitter for the last year. I have probably been smoke free longer than a smoker in this time but keep thinking I can have a few puffs. Need to be true to myself and no more sneaky puffs which leads to more and more. It’s in our hands and I want to be free and stop lying to everyone especially myself.
I have just started my journey towards a smoke free tomorrow so that I can breathe well and be healthy. I would love to share my progress every day and I hope I will be able to complete this jpurney
Hello All, and thanks very much for the chance to be part of your group.
Today at 1pm I quit smoking and looking forward to sharing my story as I progress over the next few weeks.
the first few hours were always the worst for me in previous attempts, I would set a date, get all riled up and start the day with great intentions.
This never worked, by 11am I had those damn nagging doubts, ...
I have smoked for nearly 38 years. I'm embarrassed to admit this. I fact, I have tried to not think about how long I have smoked. I need to quit. I survived breast cancer and should have quit then. Now I'm starting the constant disgusting cough with phlegm. Its time. I'm scared because I enjoy smoking. Always have. My triggers will be coffee, love my first smoke of the day with fresh coffee. I am...
Started Nicotex patch today. Didnt feel craving for the first half of the day but bit itchy now:( I have tried cold turkey a few times but it didnt last so hoping the patch with help. My spouse is a heavy smoker so I am bit nervous about relapse- psychological / habit based rather than withdrawl... I am more determined in a non- dramatic way this time so lets hope!!

I’m 20 years old and I’ve been smoking solidly since I was 17. I was going onto my 4th year that I started smoking. Smoking now is getting really expensive and I want to start saving more money and living a healthy lifestyle for my family, friends and especially myself. I’ve had a lot of support over the past year of trying to quit. This is now my second attempt and my girlfrie...
