Day 1 today in my lifelong love/hate relationship with smoking. I already know that day 3 is my worst enemy, day 21 is my risky complacency day and any form of high stress just sends me straight back to the cigarette counter BUT this time i have new tactics. I have developed diffusion and distraction techniques, I've downloaded and registered on the icanquit app. I've entered the icanquit number...

Hi there everybody. I am on day 15 of Champix and was feeling that the side effects weren't worth it any more so searched for guidance online.
Wow, I have read through some comments and could just keep going.
I am down to around 3-4 cigarettes a day now but feel I could drop to one in the morning one at night which is my goal by the end of this week. I have multiple ...
I have just had enough of this habit consuming my life
Hi guys tomorrow is the day I’m stopping this habit. I have thrown out all cigarettes and everything. I’m a little bit nervous because my previous attempts have failed. But I really want to stop this habit.
I’m cold turkey and a patch during the day is what I’m going to do. Does anyone recommend anything else to help me get through the first few days?
During this Ramzan(15th may to 5th June)(holy month for Muslims,though not a Muslim) trying to be smoke-free completely for next 21 days. I have started my journey from today to live a smokeless life. I have planned to follow it religiously as Muslims follow their routine during this period. My main reason behind smoking is low confidence,self-doubt, hypothetical pressure and self created negativ...
I’m having major surgery soon and I want everything to go smooth so I’m going to try and give up smoking. This is day 1 (actually 7hrs 8minutes), I’m aware of certain triggers and my plan is to keep busy but I have a special needs child which can be challenging so I hope I can stay strong with that.
So, I've decided to quit finally, starting tomorrow. And I'm so scared. I've been smoking for 18 years and it shows. Weazing, can't catch my breath, severe cough... I'm scared I can't do it. Im scared it's going to drive me crazy. But I want to quit! So, I'm glad to be here, reading all of your stories. Im gaining encouragement and im finding comfort.
I just finished "Easyway to stop smoking" book by Allen Carr, a british author. Before reading the book, I tried so many times to quit smoking but i could not quit. The craving that made me mad. I used to be like "just one puff!! ", that one puff led to 10 to 20 per day. While i was searching for tips online, i came across this book. And i read it in just 2 days. The author has explained best way...
Hi there, I made the decision today to stop. So went online and found this website.
I am trying to get Champix from my doctor as I tried cold turkey and quite smoking aids before but still keep failing :-(.
Not sure why I am sharing my thoughts on here but I hope it will help putting it out there and motivate me to press on this time.
Today I started my Quit journey. I am going Cold Turkey as I am sceptical about stop smoking aids. I am 66 and have been smoking on and off since I was 17. My hubby is helping me, he gave up about 30 years ago. My one tip is "one foot in front of the other" every day I don't smoke is one step closer to quitting forever.
