I was an intermittent smoker in the late 80s early 90s, I gave up when I fell pregnant with my first of 4 beautiful babies. Now in my 50s I have been introduced vapes I have always missed smoking so thinking vaping is a great answer. But I had to hide it from my husband and family feeling so ashamed.

Start day tomorrow!

I want to quit smoking and did tried earlier on my own but was never able to stop it. If anyone can help me with how to stop smoking would be of great help. I think it's not possible but still I would like to try and not give up.

I'm feeling extremely inspired by all the struggle and success stories I am reading on this site.
Today is day 3 of my quit journey and I am pleased to say that I am feeling relatively good. Yes, I have all the cravings with the devil on my shoulder telling me to have just one but I keep repeating the mantra NOPE (not one puff ever) - thank you for sharing this. That's really the long and the ...
