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.

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...
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 think it's time to look at how far we've come, to stand proud with heads held high, to acknowledge our successes. So go on stick your finger up at that nicotine troll, moon it, poke your tongue out- what ever floats your boat. Sure we all have a way to go but we have also come a long way.. Give yourself a good old high five, God knows we deserve it.. Here's to all of the nicotine freedom fighte...
