Me and my husband have been trying to quit for the past year and now that I am pregnant, yesterday was day 1 of our quit journey. Over the last 12 months I have cut back from 40 cigarettes to ten cigarettes per day. On my first day I actually started crying because I wanted a cigarette so bad but my husband managed to calm me down. So today is my second day and I am feeling pretty confident. I re...
The first step is to decide which im sure everyone does pretty often.
The second step which needs more willpower is to carve a date and see yourself not smoking beyond that.
Im on the second step of the journey and want to make this the last attempt and succeed.
Its actually not that big a deal since ive quit before for days/weeks straight - cold turkey and still been ok.
The third step i...
I am 2 days, 20 hours and 22 minutes into my quit and i am proud, taking it minute by minute hour by hour and day by day, i find keeping track of this helpful as it is a reminder of how far i have come and that its not worth throwing that time of being smoke free away.
Time means alot to me now i am a mother. 😁
And smoking was stealing so much time from me. I am proud of the t...
I have, and am working on, a plan this time round. This will be about my 15th attempt. I'm going to use as many resources available hat I can access. I don't want to keep making excuses to stay addicted. I want to have more reasons to live, and live a better more fulfilling life of fitness and exercise. I want to feel strong in my life, not weakened by addiction.

I feel I’m stuck in the mental thinking of needing a smoke so haven’t given them away yet but also not g...
Tomorrow 2/7/19 is the day I’m going to do it for good... last 4 years I have struggled to quit pretty much on a daily basis only to end up smoking even more thinking each day was my last day to smoke. Going to try to use vape sparingly and let it stick this time once and for all. I’m determined but afraid to continuously fail.
Have been smoking only 2years.Started out as a rebellious act then turned into a coping mechanism. Now not feeling so great and want to stop but not finding it easy to stop. I have read the book Easy Way by Allan Carr. I understand the method but not sure why I don’t feel ready to Quit or i am just afraid to Quit.
Has anyone had a similar experience?
Think about better future
Day 1 of attempting not smoking. My chest is so bad, I can hardly breathe. Coughing continuously. I think it's too late but I need to stop. I've had 1 cigarette with coffee today. This will be so hard. I'm very anxious, but I know I can do this.
Keep reminding yourself how smoking does nothing for the better. I keep telling myself how energetic i am now and how good i feel and realised its only feeling normal and that shows me how much smoking can make you feel crap.. Its doing nothing good and now i have the motivation growing to achieve a lot more than i could when i smoked. I was lazy and wanted to just do nothing. But i feel awake ag...
