I have just decided to quit social smoking - smoking when I drink. I cannot imagine ever having a good time again when I drink. I have tried to do this many times and failed. Does anyone have any tips? Hypnotherapy? Visualisation? Meditation? Stopping drinking for a while or changing to a new drink? Any advice would be welcomed.
Hello All, and thanks very much for the chance to be part of your group.
Today at 1pm I quit smoking and looking forward to sharing my story as I progress over the next few weeks.
the first few hours were always the worst for me in previous attempts, I would set a date, get all riled up and start the day with great intentions.
This never worked, by 11am I had those damn nagging doubts, ...
I thought I'd write this to help myself in my journey to quit smoking.
Just like everyone on this page, I am addicted to smoking cigarettes. I have been smoking on and off since a very young age for about 10 years now but throughout the past 2 years it has become a problem and has affected my mental and physical health.
I value my physical health and mental health a lot and smokin...
I have finally decided to quit smoking! If i don’t do it now it will never happen. I am 27 years old and have been smoking for about 8 years now.

I’ve been a smoker since I was 16 I’m now 43 - smoked a lot in my 20 and 30 but since had kids- I can go days and weeks without smoking until I have a glass of wine and then I crave / need cigarettes-
I can’t seem to break this habit and I feel so remorseful and angry the next morning after a night drinking and smoking. Love to hear stories on how to break this awful habit. If I can not smoke ma...
I am a 54 year old woman who has smoked for 36 years.
I have attempted quitting around 10 times over the past 20 years,managing to last 18months the last time I tried ( around 7 years ago) I notice how bad my skin looks,how much phlegm I have every morning and how much my apartment smells. So,armed with patches and determined to successfully wipe this addiction from my system,I am here.
Hi, I quit smoking 2 1/2 years ago (yay) but the trouble is I’m addicted to 4mg lozenges! Sometimes I’ve been putting another one in my mouth before finishing the last! I’m nervous about quitting them as I get anxiety and the horrible withdrawal feelings scare me. I know I probably use them as an emotional crutch as I did smoking too. I seem to miss them even 30 mins after not having one (unless ...
i’m 21 years old, I live in SA, and i’ve smoked for 5 years now,
I need help! i’ve tried quitting, i’ve failed soo many times before, but this time I really want to do it. I need help dealing with pressure to smoke, all my friends smoke, it’s hard, i live in a small town, so meeting new people who dont smoke is near impossible, i don’t want to push my friends away, but i don’t want to ...
Today i decided to quit, this is going to be difficult.
Personal story.. after 35 years smoking 20+ a day I decided very suddenly the time was right to stop smoking. I have joined a U.K. smoking clinic and have patches free also invested in a vapour. I cannot believe I am almost 14 dats without a cigarette🤗 it’s not been easy I have moments where I think I need a cigarette but it does pass. I know I am eating more but I can tackle that eventually. Wh...
