I literally attempt every time I finish a packet, and will smoke more to get rid of them quickly, only to end up buying another packet and then having to chain smoke that packet just to try get rid of them & try quit again.

I extinguished my last poison stick on the 15/3/2020. I started nrt patches on the 16/3 so I am now 1 week free. The first few days were a challenge. However each day is getting better. So far I am doing ok. I know it’s early, however I am enjoying learning more about myself and eating better. I look at it as an awakening experience rather than fear. One day at a time for me.
I am new here. I really like to quit,not just because of my money but most importantly, for my health.

Today is day 25 on Champix and Day 24 of last cigarette. Problems I face is stomach cramps and nausea but it all goes away after an hour. I am generally an anxious person so started controlling my mind wandering off to overthinking since I am on Champix. My main trigger is feeling bored. Whenever I am alone at home or I have nothing to do i feel like going for one. So I started watching all the l...
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

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.
