Welcome to the iCanQuit community this is your opportunity to share with your fellow community members any tips, stories or advice you may have around quitting smoking or staying quit.
I remember watching non smokers and wondering how they did it. How did they not smoke after a meal? It seemed impossible to me, the thought of being eating and not instantly needing/wanting /thinking of a cigarette seemed very foreign. How was I going to be able to sleep, drink alcohol or even be able to be around smokers if I quit?
How would I handle a crappy day at work? handle a crisis? How ...
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.

Just completed day 12 of being smoke free yay! I'm having troubles with my account though so may have to disable it and start again. I'm not receiving emails when people comment on my posts and in my quit plan, it won't allow me to change that I'm a former smoker of only a week or so, it says I have bee for years. I've emailed this site and they are trying to fix the issues for me. Real...
Day 10 of starting to stop quitting but day 4 smoke free. Nausea,fatigue,aches and pains. I am not sure if this is side effect of the patches or withdrawal symptoms. But Not feeling the best. I understand some here has to work. Lucky I don't but still having trouble getting though my day. So how do you cope getting though your day feeling like all you want to do is sleep.
On my second round of champix as i quit the last round because of debillitating nausea. This time i tried some different things and found, with much releif that very strong ginger tea wipes out the nausea completely. I am no sophisticate so a half level teaspoon of dried ginger stirred in when pouring boiling water in, works fine. I take it with honey and milk but you can take it anyway you want....
482 days nicotine days free today 1st Jan 2017 and still cannot quite believe it. Thanks all my mates on here and icanquit for a brilliant web page. Happy and smoke free 2017 to all.
I was a long term (40 yrs), heavy smoker (50 plus daily), attempting Champix for the 4th time. This time, instead of giving up after a week I persevered to let my body get used to & settle with some side effects which encouraged me to continue. I still had side effects, other than laxatives, I struggled & coped with the rest because I was determined. After a couple of weeks I only smoked 1 a day ...
Today I am 457 days away from my last cigarette and feel so grateful. When I quit at 67 after 53 years abusing myself with poisons I sort of knew this time I meant business.
My wife had had a triple heart bypass and detested everything about smoking.
In 2008 I had three heart stents put in and still carried on.
I always knew that cigarettes were self destructing but rationalized it in the m...
