Hello everyone :)
Quitting with the smoking addiction was the start of a new chapter in my life, which lead me to a much better path. This has inspired me to help others achieve this, because I want everyone to able to live a heathy lifestyle.
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.
also broke up with that a**hole of a boyfriend and back to the other one <3
-chwoe, the lover
(12) Today was easy!
Listen to what I am saying: “Going the entire day without smoking was easier than anything else I did today.” Now consider this . . . I am a 73 year-old man who smoked anywhere from a pack to three packs of cigarettes a day for 53 years of his life. I also happen to have celebrated 8 years of being nicotine free on July 12, 2020. If anyone had told me on July 11, 2012 that I...

Associate yourself to new place where your old habit reminds you, keep walking in new places/garden/mountains and breathe (deep breathe) after 1 month and observe what you missed when your able to breathe easily and deeply... :-)
What I didn't realize when I quit smoking was how much time I was losing by smoking. Not just the time at the end of life but the time during my life. I smoked about 25 cigs a day which took about 10 minuets per cig. That's over 4 hours a day wasted. I think this is one of the reasons quieting is so hard. You sit around with all that spare time with nothing to do but wish you had a cig. Time for...
Had been smoking for 50 years apart from a couple of short breaks...Anyone with a similar habit knows how hard it is to quit, besides which I have always considered it as one of the few things I do well.Smoking consists of basically two things - The Addiction to nicotine and the Habit....Sticking it in your mouth, lighting it, smoking it and sharing with your friends..Now the addiction is the eas...
In my quit smoking survival kit i have:
1. Kava capsules or powder for quitting smoking side effects like irritability. They have helped alot at keeping me calm.
2. Fidget toy sutch as a stress ball or fidget spinner.
3. Symbolic friendly reminders, i have a coin to symbolize the mony i am saving and a feather to remind me of my freedom of addiction.
4. Cuticle Oil and a good lip balm. Just ...

Giving up this Monday for good. Want to be here for my kids weddings
We need to support everyone in a positive way.....we do not need quoted passages from books etc, we do not need people standing on their soap boxes dishing out advice as if they know all there is to know. We simply need to quietly encourage and support anyone that needs it. Everyone has a point of view, but I honestly believe there are some who are giving advice that has not been asked for. Somet...
I have a few questions... I quit around a week ago after smoking a pack a day for a little over a year. I assumed that after the four days passed, so would the symptoms. While they have decreased, I'm still having trouble concentrating and communicating. My mind is so foggy I have trouble forming coherent sentences at times. It's really inconvenient since I'm in school and this is an important ti...
My experience at 80 days was the first 3 to 5 during the nicotine withdraw were the worst and most difficult. The next difficulty was changing the daily routines! " The first morning smoke, the stress reliever, the after meal smoke. Smoking to me was like my best friend that's killing me slowly!! Changing the high risk smoking times of day, need to be changed with healthier alternatives, the mind...
Go for a long walk. Worked well for me on day 1.
I am eating more than ever since I cut down on my cigarette intake for the day. My cravings for healthy food has increased due to my metabolism being fast when I was active. I am hesitant to just binge out on good food and drinks as I have a lot of stress and am currently not active since being in a motor bike accident last year October my smoking has increased a lot up until now as I do not have...
I have compiled a list of the top things that have helped me get to the point I am at now (over 15 months quit). Please keep in mind the quit process is different for everyone but I believe there are certain techniques listed below that will help most quitters:
1) Read and be open to the concept of Allan Carr's "Easy Way to Quit Smoking" The foundation for Allan also gives live seminars in ce...

Hi I quit also, using champix.
Few headaches to start with but no problems now as long as I eat before I take the pill.
I was not a long long term smoker, I smoked for nearly 2 years.
Still been hard.
Apart from using champix I just cut down from 8 to 3 then to 2 then none.
Also I gym everyday which helps with stress and I also ride my bike.
On top of this I had my partne...

Hi all, today is my first day I'm going to quit my smoking habit. I know its tough to do but I really hope someone out there can help me out. My last cigarette I had at 2pm today. I'm going to be free from nicotine. I re-frame my mind and make my will strong enough. Pls wish my success and keep pray and motivate me.
I found a program called You Can Do It 123 Easy on ITunes and it is fabulously helpful and is making it so much easier check it out everyone. Cheers!
I am really struggling to staying quit. I keep trying after a relapse of not smoking for 10 weeks, but I just can't seem to shake it. I'm not giving up on giving up though. Any words of advise or encouragement for a determined struggler.
I am proud I can now finally say I am 9 days without smoking. I smoked around 20 cigarettes a day for more than 10 years and after a couple of attempts I now finally decided to quit forever. The reason I wanted to post is to share my point of view regarding the emotional reactions witch all of us have to endure during our first months without smoking. In my case I could describe it as an emotio...
Today is my first day of being smoke free. I am going well, been to see my doctor and got and filled a script for patches. I have been tempted to smoke, but when I feel the urge to I use NRT and deal with it in my thoughts, and re assess my goals and reasons for quitting. I know I can do this!!!!
Hello all you lovely smoke free people. It's been 2 full months now for me and I finally did the the big 5k run at the weekend for Cancer Research UK. Guess what! I managed it, I ran all the way round the course and I even had enough breath left at the 4k mark to have a chat with a lady who quit smoking 3 years ago. It was thrilling to see thousands of women dressed in pink and all running for...
