Hi, my name is shifra Nakibuuka. I'm not a doctor or a guest lecturer Instead, I used to be a chain smoker for over 10 years.
I quit smoking 5 years ago, and today I am a proud mother of two living with my husband in South Africa, Western cape
I struggled many years trying to quit smoking. There's nothing I didn't try.
I tried Allen Carr's program and went through what Abrahamson had to offer....
Realize that having a cigarette does not change the situation you may be facing. Making up an excuse to have a cigarette is just that, an excuse. Generally, during our earlier attempts, most of us tend to be full of excuses, once you realize this and take control which means to stop making excuses, you start to get results.
QUITTING SMOKING IS SIMPLE AND STRAIGHT FORWARD compared to dieting. Both take determination and positive thinking but dieting is always ongoing whereas quitting smoking is simply just done.
I caution dieters to not go below the 1200 calories as that is our basic metabolic rate for most of us. I prided myself for putting nutrition and exercise first but was appalled at how recklessly some at...
FEAR. Fear immobilizes us. Fear prevents us from going further. A great post PuffNoMore and fear was a great reason why people don't quit smoking. If we could remove that fear and get people to BELIVE that there is nothing to fear, many more would quit.
We value N.O.P.E. (Not One Puff Ever), so perhaps we need an acronym for FEAR.
Please submit your answer that might help someone conquer...

Hi guys, I’ve tried champix and I find it great except it gives me dreams all night so I woke up exhausted and it also breaks my skin out. I have literally cut a tablet in half to only have a smaller dose. It helps to make my skin less bad but still effects my sleep. Has anyone taken it at night instead and found that helps? Has anyone had the same experience?
I want to take it to help me quit ...
Everyone's quit is different. Some want to avoid temptations and triggers while others want to see and feel that they are making the CHOICE. That is empowerment as I see it. When we want something else more than the temptation. When we simply make up our minds to do something because we WANT to. It really is much easier.
I had always felt the first step to quitting smoking was to find the...

Reading Allen Carr’s book- ‘Stop Smoking Now’ is a great help.
Keep sending me your inspirational messages x
So I think I had a personal breakthrough when it comes to managing those disgusting cravings that used to pop up every now and then. I used to use sheer will to fight it off, by telling my self "I can't smoke a cigarette. I shouldn't smoke. I wont smoke." All the while I subconsciously thought about the words "smoke" and "cigarette."
Thinking that way only made things worse. Every time I told ...
First, i want to say Hello to everyone in here. Now i’m willing to share my strategy which is i using at the moment to beating of craving or to calm my feeling down.

I am glad my test posted, so I will try again.
We have been brainwashed for years.
We are not weak willed. We were so determined to teach ourselves to smoke despite the foul taste and gagging. We were told it was bad , unhealthy, but not ADDICTIVE. And if that was mentioned, we were young and it tasted so "Yuck" that was hard to believe. We just wanted to present a new image and fit in wit...
I am testing here before writing and no post. Read the next entry called QUITTING SMOKING CAN BE EASY! REPEAT QUITTING SMOKING CAN BE EASY! We need to undo all the brainwashing. That is not to say that you may find it hard, but QUITTING SMOKING CAN BE EASY!
So its been 122 days since I went cold turkey. I can tell that the cravings are getting less frequent and my breathing is getting much better when going on a run, so that keeps me somewhat motivated to continue on down this path, but I cant help but wonder: am going to be stuck like this forever? Am I going to have to fight an urge to light one up every day? Does it ever go away?
I was craving them so much it was like a hallucinary experience for me to get at them again. My Mom got me some patches to really do the trick and make it all go away once I made my mind up: no more of it!
though it has been sum months, i have returned back to this beloved site to let u all know that u have not driven me off it.
i understand the bullying u all were doing was to drive me off- both this website and my journey on quitting smoking.
i missed u all, esp happiness. my biggest fan through-out this journey. i will be updating u all on my recent adventures.
- love u a...
Tabex Sopharma the best for quit smoking.
Hi everyone still on the non smoking train
I am still struggling with cravings.
Especially first thing in the morning.
The minute I open my eyes it's a feeling of o wait I don't smoke anymore and I fell a downer feeling happening and I don't like it.
Why this happens I do not no.
Yes I am happy that I no longer smoke but I think it's still fresh in the mind I no longer smoke.
It’s only been something like 60 days since I went cold turkey and had my last ciggie.
I had really tough moments in the beginning and almost relapsed, but I stayed strong.
I’ve realized it’s going to be a lifelong battle that I choose not to lose. I’ve made changes to my lifestyle that keeps me away from temptetation. Working out is the best lifestyle change I can think of.
I have s...
Hey there, so at the moment, I’m currently on day 19 of champix and for about a week now I’ve had nothing but constant vomiting. I know feeling nausea is common but just want to know whether vomiting every day is common?? Every bit of food I had that day, gets taken back out with ease and it’s starting to make me panic a bit. Anything I can do??
So far 8 days which is great. Lots of quitters seem to want to eat but I have the opposite effect I don’t feel like eating. Don’t get me wrong am eating my 3 meals because I have to. Yes have just got back into yoga and the gym. I have always been thin but would love to gain about 6 kilos. How many times have I heard “ just eat more”. Trying but I guess it will take time. It just goes to s...
At the beginning of December I said that quitting smoking was easier than losing weight.
To back this up, since I truly did find quitting smoking easy, once finding a site and believing that it was at least a realistic possibility. After all I am not special in any way, even if i would never have believed many things that have come to pass.
I did not believe I could quit smoking.....but h...
Six years ago I was found HBsAg positive and by taking Worldherbsclinic HBV herbal medicine, now I am negative. abdominal pain gone. All this happened between 2 months.Am very happy to share my victory over HBV. I always knew i will beat this deadly disease, i never stopped researching for solution. Don’t ever give up, you will surely be free on day.
2 days with 0 smokes. Wearing a hair band on my wrist every time I think about a cigarette, I snap the band on my wrist and it diverts my thoughts. Also breathing in and exhaling deeply.
Drink mint water it works trust me
