Hello dear ex smokers!
My name is Cath- and Im just 11 smoke free. I went cold turkey..my two biggest fears for relapsing in early days were :1.smoking when going out and 2. Going on a coffee with a friend that smokes.
On day 9 I went out..had two glasses of wine-I didnt smoke!Felt so proud!
Today, on day 11-I went on a coffee with a coworker that smokes..coworkers were usually a trigger for ...
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
Keeping in good spirit
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.
Yknow, not just being nagged to quit, but being believed in that I could do i...
I have to do this. I'm 24, soon I'll be 25 and that means I've been smoking for 7 years. <br />Why can't I do this? I can't help it, not on my own. Maybe I can, but it doesn't feel like it.
I remember the day, the day I started. 27/12/2013. Two days before I began destroying myself was Christmas day, I'd separated from the first girl I had ever dated. No...
I’m 52 and started smoking from the age of 15. I’m an asthmatic with heart arrhythmia and not doing myself any favours to my health or the back pocket for that matter. Tried on numerous accounts without success. Smoking has taken its toll over the years and not sure if it’s failure that’s stopped me trying over again or the fact after a meal, coffee or stressed a cigarette is my best friend. Coll...
Well today is day 1. Sadly i have already slipped up this morning while drinking coffee as soon as i woke up. But i did put a patch on and im going to try and keep from smoking for the rest of the day. Im more worried about going to work in 2 days. As a waitress, there is a lot of stress and triggers for me at work and as much as i would love to get rid of those triggers, i can't. Im going to hav...
My experience with the Forum is awesome. The Forum helps you talk to others who understand and who can inspire and support you. It's what gets me through sunrise to sundown . Patches help you get rid of the nicotine but friends help you through the other times
Well, after 35yrs of smoking, it’s time to take the plunge to give up. I’m a bit worried about how my head will cope though. I already have anxiety and depression after giving up alcohol 5 yrs ago. I now just drink coffee and smoke all day. As I’m on the disability pension, I don’t work and am home all day, this boredom will be my challenge.
I’m struggling to pay bills and stay on top of things ...
Well today is my first day since last nite. Keeping my self occupied and calm and being aware of my triggers is the trick.
