I started smoking when I was 16. I was disgusted by it by the age of 18, tried zillion ways and nothing seemed to work. Finally nicotine replacement therapy worked and I successfully quit for 10 years. Now I am 31, I made the classic mistake of lighting one cigarette thinking its one only. I had forgotten all the learnings, how proud I was of not smoking for 10 years and that I am an addict even ...
Today is day 2 of no smoking, I have been smoking since I was 17! Grew up with both heavy smoker parents! A couple of days ago my daughter asked me if I wanna die early! Is that why I smoke so much! And it hit me! I have been smoking for 13 years and I am not even 31 yet! So I threw away everything and hopefully gonna stick to the plan and not pass on this bad habit to my kids like it was passed ...
second attempt of quitting. has to be cold turkey because i’ve been put in hospital, this is going to be very hard. especially because of medication interchanges ect. good luck to me i guess
3rd serious attempt in 40+ years. Tip to self: take all the help available - left the Dr, script filled straight away, signed up here same day - today!
I will also finish the treatment/pills even when I think I don't need to.
I will go on this site daily and track my progress.
I'm keen, I'm excited, I'm going to be cigarette free before my 60th birthday and I'm going to have a little more sav...
I’ve been smoking rollies now for a year and a half. Prior to that I had been smoke free for nearly 10 years. I’m not sure why I started again exactly but I think it’s probably due to a stressful situation at home at the time. I think I also continued to smoke as some relief from home and work stress…and now it’s a full on as breathing. The need the habit is stronger than ever. I m...
My husband and I married 18 Sept. Since then, we have been non-stop on the go packing all my stuff into storage and travelling. We arrived in Sydney on Oct 8, and - obviously - I haven't had a smoke since we got on the plane in San Francisco. I've had the occasional craving, but I've managed to curb that with food or chewing gum. My problem is that I'm fantasizing about the day we get out of quar...
i’m under 21 years old and picked up smoking from peers at work. i couldn’t stop because it suppressed so many feelings of stress and made me feel better. but now i’m starting to feel sick from it. i want to live a healthier life and make my family proud and let them see the change in myself. i hate myself for picking it up, and disappointing everyone around me. this is day 1
Today is the day for me and I’m at the hour of having my first cigarette, have a patch on but feeling a bit shaky and not too confident but I’m just going to give it a go. Trying not to make it a huge deal cause then I obsess and then cave. Going to have a coffee in a different setting and see how l go.
I very much want to quit but I’ve become trapped in a never ending cycle of stopping for a day and then starting again. I feel physically sick from smoking but I feel mentally obsessed and unable to let it go. I’ve got nicotine replacement inhaler which I’ve never used because I just want the cigarette! I haven’t smoked today. What can I do?
Hi guys! I’ve been reading so many stories and feel so encouraged by each and everyone of them. Today is the day for me! I found out I’m PREGNANT (again) I’ve got a son already, gave up than stupidly took it back up after giving birth. I’m afraid that I will fail this time as I feel sometimes having a smoke is the only 2 mins I have to myself, but I’m also so determined 🤗!
