I started smoking when I was 13 years old. My family were all smokers, mostly truck drivers and I was surrounded by peers who smoked.
I’m now 38 and a certified Chef. My idol(of course) is Chef Ramsay. I own all of his books and every one of them tells you that if you smoke, quit now because smoking dulls your palette. I knew patches and gums wouldn’t work so I decided to try E-cigarettes. Howe...
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.
Yesterday I was cleaning out my utility room and found an old electronic cigarette. I am not sure how long it's been hidden in a cabinet but I found it.

I am trying my best to quit smoking & I thought being a Australia Day would be a good start to my journey to be smoke free.. I had a couple of beers & half of a smoke, while I was sitting outside near the Bbq & the other half later. Still hoping to see light at the end of the tunnel. Your comments inspire me, keep them going.

My first day, first day in years that I have not had a cigarette. I feel like I want one, but I don't. I am going to beat this.
You were right, everyone. Thank you for commenting on my story, you were right. I hadn't made up my mind. I woke up to many nice and encouraging words from you all, and I think that was it.
Yknow, not just being nagged to quit, but being believed in that I could do i...
