I really want to quit as I am so done with smoking. I’m so worried and I have no idea how! Anything I should use or take to help start quitting?
Struggling today being day 13 of my Champix journey I am finding it’s helping me not feel like one and they taste like crap but struggling with my quit date being 14th feb as to letting them go completely I feel like I’m loosing something stupid I know it’s mentally a boxing match going on inside my head and anxiety is kicking in now 😣
Just wanted to share my journey so far. I am 26 days quit free. Feeling so determined this time after several Quit attempts in the past. Just taking one day at a time. Using patches and gum for cravings. Also reading other people's Stories are helping me immensely 😊 Keep up the good work everyone! We can do this!!
I have smoked for 14-15 years and When I started quitting I slipped up majorly brought a pack spent the day trying to smoke them cause I was quitting for sure the next day. Next day I had 3-4 didn't have anymore then the next day I was so proud I didn't have any at all it's not that easy but it's not that hard either I downloaded a heap of apps to help me and tried keeping busy on my phone I stil...

They really do help, although I hope I don't experience withdrawal from them when it's time to stop using them. I have such a hard time sleeping at night.

I have read the book Easy Way by Allan Carr. I understand the method but not sure why I don’t feel ready to Quit or i am just afraid to Quit.
Has anyone had a similar experience?
Hi My nickname is Nuts because i was nuts to take up smoking. I have smoked for over 20 years and enjoyed it. But the time has come to quit. First i cut down to 5 a day , and then started using patches. Very determined. First day easy. Second day hard. Got a bit better after that. Today is day 7. Struggling a bit, but hanging in there. Have to keep busy. Hope tomorrow will be a bit better
