Day ONE here we go again. Attempt No 5 and hopefully the last. Bloody smokes are killing me and I can't breathe wearing the mask I have to in my job. Wanted to buy a pack when I finished the one I said was my last. Resisted today. I WILL resist tomorrow. I need my headspace to get stronger
I found my smoking linked to my anxiety and am very excited to try ziban
I have been hooked on nicotine since I was in my teenage years and I have tried to quit so many times and failed. I have watched my friends I used to smoke with as a teenager quit and I'm still here unable to kick it. I think it has to do with my mental strength cause I have made many attempts to quit and really only got to 20 days. I use sites like reddit and stopnicotineaddiction.com to help ke...
I have always been scared to quit because I know how hard it will be and how you have to keep strong mentally to resist the cravings.

Day 4 today. I think yesterday (Day 3) was my toughest so far. Being home all day on Sunday.
It’s day 1 of myself wanting to quit, I finished a 20 Pkt last night and told myself last night I wasn’t going to buy another packet tomorrow. I had 3 of hubby cigs this morning with my coffee and now I am feeling anxious and wanting to go buy a 20 packet of cigs to get me through till my quit date. This is my 3rd attempt to quit, its not easy 😞
Don’t have any hints or tips as I have just started today anybody got any good tips for me
I feel like a lost soul, I just ordered no smoking tablets and as soon i will receive it , my journey will start. I tried several times to quit but due to work stress and I believe no will power I did not succeeded. i know always will be excuses if not full committed! keep you posted!
Joined just now, I am feeling hopeful just by reading other people stories. I want to quit, but I feel like depression keeps me reaching for the cigs, almost like I am deliberately punishing myself ( I guess it’s like self-harm but a weirder version) I know it’s wrong and I hate myself for it, but I am going to try so hard to be stronger and get through this….

First morning I woke up and thought yep coffee and smoke time even though I put a 16hr 25mg patch on the day before then I realised I didn't feel like or want a smoke it was just out of habit so I changed my habit instead of making coffee and heading out side for a smoke I made coffee and sat inside on the lounge and opened a windows and enjoyed my morning coffee.
