I'm not sure what's going on with me but I feel like I'm losing the motivation.😪😪😔
I need some motivation from all you lovely people can you please help throw some things at me to keep me on straight and narrow again.
I sliped up again today with 1 smoke and this isn't like me.
I don't think it's fair after 3 months of going to a friend's house and been smoke free that I fi...
I'm an American male in my early 30s. I decided to quit smoking last year on October 12th, two days before my 31st birthday. I had smoked on and off for a few years but had pretty much been a pack a day for two years.
What made the date to quit easy was that I wanted to say I quit "by the time I was 30", and on October 12th, I was still 30 years old for 48 hrs.
Secondly, I suffer from anx...
I just need some help and motivation. It's my 147 days and I still have the urge to smoke, occasionally😵. Everyday went by with me thinking of lighting up a cigarette. I even reach a point where I don't even know what to do with my life. Everytime I got a free time, my brain will always told my body to light up a cigarette. I still yet to slip up though, but it just getting harder and harder the...

Is it normal to have a slip up with smoking?
I mean I had done 3 solid months of nothing cold turkey
And then 1 day it was like over whelming cravings that really took over and I give it? Does all ex smokers get this feeling.
I think I am doing Okie still
I no I did slip up and I'm really annoyed at that.
But i am still moving on counting days like that didn't happen.
It’s been 7+ months so far for me. Quitting smoking was one of the biggest life changing decision for me. I didn’t realise how much money, energy and time I was spending just to get that hit of nicotine. In last 7 months even with Covid 19 i was able to pay off 80% of my debt, saved enough to see house mortgage on horizon, switched my job and home (now living independently without any housemate s...
Hi all well I am very angry and very disappointed with myself.
I had a smoke. I had just 1 smoke since I stopped 3 months ago.
And to be honest I felt sick to the gut with anger that I give in.
The thing is it triggers when I am at a friend's house
Because that's where I used to go and have a drink and a smoke with her. And today well it got me.
And now one hour after doing so I thought...
It is day 36 and I feel like having a smoke, a cigarette. It is really full on! But, I'm not going to. I have come too far to go back, because all that would happen is I would take a few drags, feel a bit dizzy and think how wonderful that is and then realise what have I done??!! So I am going to save myself that old familiar anguish and say "No" to my self. Otherwise I'll be hooked right ba...
Champix fourth week and although I've cut down a lot I've still been smoking a bit. However today is the first time I've actually felt the same when I smoke as when I've not had one. This is encouraging to me. I'm surprised to learn that for some people champix can take up to four weeks and I guess I'm just one of those people! So new quit date is Saturday, please wish me luck 👍
Hello all, Today I start my first dose of Champix, I am anxious that I wont stop smoking with these but I have so much drive to push through I really hate being "the Smoker".
Any tips for a first timer on Champix
(I know about the possible side effects and will be monitored)
