just keep pedalling forward and don't look ...
I'm so happy to say I've reached 2 weeks smoke free. It's tough but nothing

For me it seems that I will always have the propensity to nicotine addiction but one day at a time I am not indulging. This seems to work. I also make sure I stay close here on icanquit even though I may not con...
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.
