Drink lots of fruit smoothies - I am 33 days quite after 40 years and noticed that I get so thirsty all the time. So I have been drinking losts of fruite smoothies and boy are they good.
I'm using patches and found that the 1st couple of weeks was easier for me to also carry the nicotine lozenges. I'd only take one when the cravings got bad. After that first couple of weeks I didn't need them anymore, until I went to step two with the patch for the first week. I will do the same when I go to step 3. And probably carry them when I'm done with the patch for awhile, just in case. I'...
I don't know what I am doing differently but I am still smoke free. I get up for a couple of hours most nights. I prayed about it every day. I was so determined not to smoke over sleep deprivation. I was putting myself to bed early each night. Then I would wake up in the middle of the night. I figured if I took up smoking because of lack of sleep I would never be able to stop. Lately I have slept...
I have lot count at the amount of times I have tried to stop smoking.
Today is day 2, see whether I can succeed this time.

After 25 Years and multiple times of trying to quit - I think I'm done with Cigarettes.
I tried everything to quit then a friend of mine introduced me to Pod Type E-Cigarettes - These were the small Pod type called Juul.
So I got on line and bought a couple with 5% Nicotine.
I was able to give the cigarettes away immediately.
After 3 months I have recently given these away and now oc...

I love this one because of the whole internal battle crap. This brings me some perspective & helps calm my frantic mind. "This is only a blip on my timeline & it isn't even close to any of the other battles I have overcome. Keep it moving forward & don't look back, you don't live there anymore." This is one of the things I am trying for self talk.
It isn't as late tonight as...
Good evening (late afternoon for some) folks. I have spent some tie on the site reading the new stories since my last visit. One story scared me, but most inspired me. I got to thinking about a comment by Happiness when I mentioned my notebook full of motivational quotes. She suggested I post them in a story & I said I would. I haven't gotten to that post yet. I just came up with an idea tonight ...
Quitting smoking is as easy or difficult as you make it.
I was going through some favourite stories and found a link within one that i missed. It is truly inspiring and instrumental in changing the mindset .
