I quit 2 days ago with a patch. This isn’t the first time I have quit. My problem is staying quit. My past quits have been cold turkey, gum or patches. I know with me it is totally more of a mental addiction. I’ve joined this forum for support from other quitters and maybe helpful tips you can give and to give support to future quitters.
Hi all. First time joiner and poster 😊 I started smoking age 14, quit age 31 for 8 years then started again 3 years ago. I’m 23 days in of ditching the death sticks and have found it relatively easy.

Many people can come to Change Their Minds and Make the Changes needed to embrace this journey, but some and probably most are older and retired like I am with many hours to fill . While we know that taking up a good habit to replace a bad one is beneficial, we cannot do that 24/7. We did not smoke that much either, but in those first days I am sure it is on the mind of some and may feel like tha...
Hi All, I am reading some stories from new people and they are really struggling. I would just like them to ask themselves Why? It seems to me that you want to quit that is why you are here. You are embarking on the best journey that you could ever give yourself. Your health will improve greatly, you will have more money in your pocket, your self esteem will be at an all time high.

I just wanted to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and give you all a story about Christmas and a little gift.l
My sister pulled a Christmas prank on Mom and it was hilarious! She presented my Mom with a box with air holes, a bag of dog food and a leash. My Mom , while liking animals, was appalled at the idea of owning a dog. Too much work for her at her age. We howled in laughter as we surmise...
