I have been smoking for over 18 years now in my 30s and my health is going downhill, my bank account is feeling the pinch and I am just generally sick of being so reliant on something so disgusting, I've been so depressed that i have even started smoking in my house which I have NEVER done, and everything smells. I have my last packet in front of me and today I joined icanquit, NEXT STEP is to go...
I just found out I’m pregnant after a failed IVF attempt in February. I got my blood test results today and I want to make sure this baby sticks and grows. I’m scared that I’ll miscarry and that’s my trigger.
While Mothers Day is a tribute to Mothers, for their caring and wisdom and love, where did we lose the love for life and the lov e and caring for ourselves? What better gift then to honour their hopes and belief in us, than to quit smoking and inspire their hopes and dreams? We are capable of almost anything when we have the desire to do so.
So whether you have a Mom or are a Mom, make ...
I have always been scared to quit because I know how hard it will be and how you have to keep strong mentally to resist the cravings. As someone who has a mental illness, this can be extremely daunting thing to do. Just take it 1 day at a time, and if you slip, don't be too hard on yourself. I'm not saying to quit quitting, but it might be able to show what your triggers are. When you see what t...
Day 4 today. I think yesterday (Day 3) was my toughest so far. Being home all day on Sunday.
I had quit, cold turkey back in 2011 when I met my partner.

By this time I was snowed under with the motherhood stresses with having two, very demanding sons, under two years of age, and I was struggling, had no support.
I started smoking again!
Not a lo...
Hi all, day 1 and decided this time to go cold Turkey and save the nico spray for emergencies, I'm in the right head space so go me lol
Day 14 and the last week has been hard. Felt like I was slipping into depression. I’m 64, recently retired, and my thoughts have all been doom and gloom lately. I must also say I am quitting alcohol at the same time as well…. Not a good idea kids! Then I read on multiple sites that quiting nicotine can cause depression and anxiety. Well I’ve smoked for 40 years and never realized how it affected ...
Don't have any hints or tips yet. On week 3. Stopped due to having dental surgery. Knew it would help me before surgery and definitely help post surgery to heal. Smoking has ruined my teeth and gums.
Problem I've got is that I've always really enjoyed smoking. I can go weeks without one, if there is a reason. However when that reason has gone, I start again. Once my mouth heals, I know that alt...
