I started my quitting smoking journey 13 days ago. I use to smoke 10-15 in a day and sometimes even 1 pack a day. For the 1st 5 days I was completely smoke free but unfortunately after that I haven been sneaking few ciggarate now and then 😔😔. I feel really bad for doing so. So today I have decided to start my journey again. I will be posting my experiences here and read other’s stories as well...
I have been addicted to nicotine lozenges for ten years. They are making me terribly ill. I have made my quit date for Wednesday. Does anyone have any tips?
Today is my Day 1. My plan is to go cold turkey and replace times that
I would have had a cigarette with a walk around the block (it's a small block!) OR with a carrot stick. My partner is a smoker and will smoke this evening at our end of work day chat. That will be hard! Fingers crossed.
I've been here before...
I gave up for almost 3-years about 10 years ago.
Since then i've given up for 9 months, then about 12 months, and a few periods of days, several weeks, a month here and there.
I guess i don't have a lot of will power... i struggle with weight as well.
I also have leant on replacements, and other prescribed drugs to allow me the brief periods of non-smoking in the past...
I quit for 5 days then caved last night and bought a pack. Smoked maybe half of it and soaked the rest of the pack in water and threw them out about an hour ago. I don't want to quit quitting. I am so tired of being a slave to the stuff. Any tips and tricks welcome. I really want to be done for good!
Hi all. I’m on my about 1000 th attempt to quit smoking for good. That’s a bit of an exaggeration but I have tried many many times and I haven’t nailed it yet. I have smoked for 35 years and this last attempt I did 3 weeks cold turkey then I caved in and smoked one. But I decided I would not relapse. It is just too much hard work going cold turkey then just giving in. I have had major heart surge...
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. The answer is I should quit. I didn’t realise how hard it would be.
Start day tomorrow!
Got a great tip from the quitline to start on two nicotine patches, this could be why previous attempts failed.
Also decided to have my morning coffee outside on bench seat instead of going back to bed and having a smoke - breaking habits
I'm nervous, but positive :)
Hi everyone! As a smokers for several years, I have fallen into the habit of first thing in the morning having a smoke, I have it as soon as I get to work, go on my lunch break and before my lunch break ends, after work after food and before bed. Some in between. Can I ask, what has worked for you in terms of breaking that routine? I live with a family of smokers and some mental health issues, so...
Day 33 with no cigarettes or vaping. Well two days ago I slipped and weakened again today.
I’m trying not to look at it as a failure.
It’s difficult when people you know look at you in distaste or call you a failure because you slipped and had a cigarette.
I find the hardest for me is missing that morning cigarette.
And the one that I used to have halfway through dinner to enjoy my dining exp...
