Although I was still smoking I was going through withdrawal . I got a bad cold a few weeks later and just stopped completely . Now suffering from the depression and exhaustion but hopeful to make it through th...

Anyone who is struggling with urges and cravings stay strong - quitting is possible; not always easy but certainly within reach. I am quit 5yrs today whoo hoo and that is after 40yrs smoking.

One day at a time
Hi, icanquit.com's readers. I ended up with smoking 10.04.2018. I have been smoking cigs for five years. It was hard to stop. I just said to myself something like Shia Labeouf and his "Just do it". I found VapingDaily on the web and it was my save point! So if u wanna break up with smoking go on and check it. I highly recommend it:) Thank for ur attention! Gl in ur trying!

had to deal with all the emotions of what i was pushing down w...
