As you can read, in my other post, I cut down over a short time, and then just quit. I had smoked an average of a pack a day for 45 years, and by day 30, h...
I just want to say that no matter which
way you decide to become smoke free, you're a winner in my eyes!

I'm so happy to say I've reached 2 weeks smoke free. It's tough but nothing

Having spoken over the years to smokers that have started again after long quits there seems to be two triggers. One is a traumatic event and the other is " it was offered so I took it "
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.
