Hello all the way from Derby, England! I stumbled across this site whilst looking for advice/support. I am trying to quit mainly for health reasons, I like to push myself hard in the gym but I'm starting to realise I can only push myself so hard as smoking holds me back. I quit about 48 hours ago so it's still fresh and the temptation is killing me! I sat outside a supermarket for 10 minutes on t...
Long story short.
I have a prescription starter pack of Champix, but decided a few hours ago I had enough of smoking after I came back from a lousy rainy run. It does help I was also out of cigs.
I've been planning to quit for while, and was able to get a prescription of Champix before I moved internationally from my previous GP.
Does it still make sense to start with the Champix after you'v...
Going bonkers feeling like biting down hard on anything! Day one nearly finished
I hate myself for slipping up majorly. Had two deaths in the family and fell into minor depression and major anxiety. What is wrong with me. I knew there was no such thing as having only “one smoke”. That escalated quickly into 7-10 cigarettes a day.
The self-hate is killing me. Man I feel like crap. This is my third attempt of quitting. I cry, and I hate it but I still reach for that sickening...
I woke up on my son's first birthday and reilsed I was over the smell and cost of it. I couldn't really enjoy the party without blowing smoke over everyone their
Hi fellow quitters!
I'm a long time smoker that wants to quit.
Over the past few months I've managed to cut back from 30 to 10 cigs a day. I'm pretty proud of that but I just can't seem to keep reducing it to "0".
So, today, is Day 1 of 7 using NRT (e-cig).
Having tried this method before (obviously it didn't work for me then), next week it's Champix.
If I can stop cigs/NRT/meds by the end...
So once again i am quitting. I have tried several times before & have done really well for months, but i need to kick it for good, i want to kick it for good. My kids don't know i smoke, my husband hates it & no other family members know. I'm sneaky. I hide, & I'm sick of it. I hate smelling of it & the money wasted on them is getting beyond a joke. It's my 47th birthday today & this is my presen...
I am so desperate to give up! My feelings right now are ones of failure & feer. My heart is racing! I feel like Im going to loose my best friend, but I need to say goodbye to them for ever. Omg, Im so anxious right now!!
I chose tomorrow as my quit date, cold turkey! I know I am going to struggle, as I am a heavy smoker & I really enjoy it.
Tomorrow is a new day & I know it is going to be tough...
I am looking for tips and advices. I don’t smoke but my partner does, about 10-15 cigarettes a day.
We have been together for 3 years now and smoking has been a huge issue for us and has put us apart.
I have been trying to make him quit for the past 2,5 years with no luck. I know He needs to do it for himself and not for me, but he lives his life as it comes, thinking that tomorrow could...
I first picked up a cigarette at 13. I am now going to be 25 at the end of the month and I realized that I never even gave myself a chance. I had my last cigarette this morning at 7:05 am (it's currently 11:39 am) and now I'm trying really really hard not to go out and buy a pack. With my father recently diagnosed with COPD (he also has emphysema) I've taken a step back and looked at myself. Do I...
