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

if it wasn’t for the sore on my buttocks I wouldn’t have known I had it. Once I discovered the blisters on my buttocks I went to the doctor. They scraped a sample of the blisters and had it tested. The results came back and said I had it. I started on WORLDHERBSCLINIC HERPES VIRUS (HSV1)herbal medicine treatment. I was on it for just three months,and I never thought I will recover so soon and My ...
Its hard to gather my thoughts to literately help someone who needs advice. Everyone seems to be moving in a positive direction. some have moved into no-smoking territory, stay strong Gemma & Jess. Swap & Chapter have things sorted and keep your great work up please. We've come to realise that we all have to work along-side others who smoke in front of us sometimes and we dont worry or want what ...
I have tried so many times to quit but failed every time.
This time I’m going to put 200% into it
Smoking 40+ a day and now on the NRT
I’m on day one today so yes I have a long way to go
My biggest setback is all the other smokers around me
I live and work with people smoking around me
Any tips on how to overcome and beat this is greatly appreciated
This addiction is actually helping me stop other addictions too!
its important to keep an online journal so you can always look inside and see how long you have quit, this gives you strength on a challenging day, it gives you a pat on the back and this will make you the ultimate winner!! Thanks God for this great community!!

Tomorrow marks my 2 years of being a happy non-smoker. I think the realization that I was an addict of sorts albeit legal made an impact. Trying to better my health in other areas led me to the belief that I could quit smoking. After 4 decades of smoking I finally came to understand how I started and how to end it.
Hence lesson 101.111111 and yes i won,won, won, won. And will keep...
My helpful thought that I have come up with in case I feel tempted today is: I prefer to breath instead of choking on phlegm.
I am going to use this as my response to any temptation today.
I have just signed up today with the goal of reducing and then going cold turkey.
One concern that came up for me is what impact would this have on my body and I was hoping that you all may have some tips on what foods and/or supplements may help my body with the change of becoming a non-smoker?
Any tips are most welcome.
Hi Everyone, I was chatting with a friend the other day and she said something about smoking that I felt was a great point to share. We used to smoke because smoking was a very social thing to do.....however these days smoking is just plain lonely.
So if you don’t want to be lonely....you don’t want to isolate yourself from others....you don’t want to feel shame.....stop smoking
I'm stunned at how few resources there are in Australia to support people who want to quit smoking - this website is the most i could find, and its not really a forum but more for people to put a few 'stories' here and there.
We have the world's most expensive cigarettes! though all the government websites/resources are shallow and hollow.
Any recommendations for podcasts or YouTube channels for quit smoking journeys? For those sleepless nights :)
How's is everybody doing with the no smoking journey.
It's a hard one to beat but you can do it with the right mindset.
I'm 128 days smoke free. Had 2 slip up over a month ago but that was it.
It does get easier as time go's on.
How did everyone start there journey?
Interested to no how you all started
I myself went cold turkey
Just get straig...
hello my amazing fans, i am sure u all have missed me. i have been extremely busy, with quitting smoking and all.
recently, this dumb b*tch has been creating drama in my life. she is a strong 2/10 and the girls hair looks like hay. she is a compulsive liar and pretended to have dated multiple men as well as pretending that she was my friend (i have never spoken to this girl in my life).
Hi everyone hope you are all staying strong and having a wonderful smoke free weekend.
It's great to not have that small lingure around me anymore or in my hair and clothes.
My partner is much happier and proud of me that I have come this far and continue to be a non smoker.
I did have my slip over 2 weeks ago now but as I said I will not go back to the start as it was so hard to stop the ad...
Think about your reasons for quitting as this leads to motivation then be determined. My doctor told me motivation is all that is needed to quit, i agree if the reason is big enough (throat cancer ect..) yes for sure that would motivate just about everyone. My reason was imagining i was on my death bed at a young age knowing it was my fault i have shortened my life and now its over. This was a st...
Hi all I'm not sure why but I'm craving badly as we speak I'm doing all I can to beat this craving but this 1 well it's a hard 1. I so t want 1 and I will not smoke 1 but serious big craving right now.
Hello everyone my cravings are quite high tonight I dont know why. I am keeping busy by coming onto this site and reading stories and comments and commenting on stories and now writing a post. It sure beats having a cigarette and means once these urges pass I will still be a non smoker. Have a magical evening everyone.
Happy Sunday everyone. I love it when I wake up in the morning and can easily take a few deep breaths and feel how much more air my lungs can take in. I love hitting the pillow at night knowing I have been blessed with another smoke free day. I love being able to participate in this community. Thank you to who ever came up with the idea of this platform and thank you to those who made it happen. ...
Time flies..I am 6months free
Thank you everyone for all of your support and recommendations. I have picked myself up dusted off and am back on track. I am a non smoker with lots of friends in the icanquit community. Im sticking with all of you winners. Have a great afternoon everyone xo
Hi everyone it's jess I need help I am on day 55 and have been having lots of slips it at the point where it's to many I have just gone a purchased a packet of smokes.
Hi every body i need advice. I have quited smoking a year ago as same as drinking alcohol and all kind of caffine and reduce sugar. One month ago i started taking caffine like sodas tea and sugar. It was heavy for me i sttoped. These two weeks my eyes are getting red my back head and back neck burns i can not sleep. Is there any body experienced this.
Is it normal to have a slip up with smoking?
I mean I had done 3 solid months of nothing cold turkey
And then 1 day it was like over whelming cravings that really took over and I give it? Does all ex smokers get this feeling.
I think I am doing Okie still
I no I did slip up and I'm really annoyed at that.
But i am still moving on counting days like that didn't happen.
other than being harassed on this website, i am taking amazing dubs.
the man that makes me feel young is out of the door and back with the man who has a plethora of mental issues. but we can work on that another time.
i am feeling, free. like an unwashed hippie in the 70s. i am zen
-chwoe, finally at peace
