Hi all. My story is that I have mouth cancer and need to stop smoking. I would think this would be a good motivation. My motivator does not seem to be very powerful. I have cut down but find it hard to get going in the morning and give in to the puff. I like my coffee and smoke rest time during the day also. I wonder when I start my treatment if I will hate smokes. Mean while every smoke I urg...
One of the most random amazing ways I've used to help quit is a sort of hypnotic, but Ural beat music I found on YouTube - here is the link: https://youtu.be/UrhlyWo0zto there are many like this if you go 'quit smoking music' into YouTube. I can say it does do wonders.
So I’m 4 days in. My mental health is completely all over the place.
I’m craving a smoke right now!! But I don’t want to stuff up the hard work I’ve done so far.
Would someone be able to give me some advice on dealing with the withdrawals for someone whom suffers from mental health illnesses?
I’m worried I’m going to relapsed and I want to prevent that as much as I can!!
Thank you ...
I imagined there was a tap in my brain and each time I take a puff, this tap turns on to release some satisfaction fluid. This happens approximately 10-15 puffs per cigarette 20 times a day. When I stopped puffing, after a while my brain realized "hang on, no satisfaction fluid is being released" this is not normal. I noticed this as my nervous system was out of whack, kind of a distortion with m...
How do you keep on track when you start smoking heaps after smoking less.
To commit one needs to accept to bad and what sacrifices must be made to achieve the good.
Remember that you are choosing you.
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...

Reading Allen Carr’s book- ‘Stop Smoking Now’ is a great help.
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 ...

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...
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.
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!!
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 :)
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...

Hello everyone :)

Im already helping two test clients with success on the journey to stop smoking completely. As I want to perfect my method and gain more experience, ...
today i received my package from the government to help my journey on quitting smoking. the package has humbled me, because i only got books on how to stop smoking and some silly little magnets.
i didn't even get a vape or anything, scomo continues to disappoint me.

Every time I write a post and try to post it,I get a message that it’s flagged up with offensive content and won’t let me post it ,so frustrating the messages are as clean as a whistle
Quitting smoking is one of the hardest experiences, however with the right support it is possible to leave this habit. I struggled for three years with my smoking habit but something marvelous happened three months ago. This all happened when i learnt about this seven day hack that enabled me to quit. Today is my 95th day off the smoke. https://bit.ly/355yhHd
I have found meditation helps heaps....
When I wanted to stop my 60 full strength a day habit I thought about what might happen if I was marooned on an island, my thoughts would be food and water .
I don't believe that under these circumstances the need for a cigarette would come into anyone's mind.
So I considered that I had put myself on an island and a cigarette was not an option, here I am 22 years later, never since have I had o...
