I quit 2 days ago with a patch. This isn’t the first time I have quit. My problem is staying quit. My past quits have been cold turkey, gum or patches. I know with me it is totally more of a mental addiction. I’ve joined this forum for support from other quitters and maybe helpful tips you can give and to give support to future quitters.
I was a smoker for 36 years it was starting to affect my health as I'm lung infections and not being able to breathe etc...I gave up 6 weeks ago and can't believe I don't even think about smokes anymore..occasionally I get what I think is a craving and on those times I use the nicorette inhaler, I honestly think that little device has helped me quit.

Hi everyone, I haven’t been on here for a very long time. I’ve tried so many times to give up. I need help🙁 I need motivation & support with quitting.

Lately I have slept...

4. Cuticle Oil and a good lip balm. Just ...
I started smoking since I was 12-year-old and had attempted quitting more than 30 times.
It was the most challenging and arduous task I have ever undertaken.
Quitting was difficult because I believed that I had given up a real 'pleasure' or 'enjoyment.'
