I’ve been a drug addict many years ago… for me cigarettes are my last drug enjoyment. It’s not speed or smack or codeine.. I’m a massive drinker and that also needs addressing. I see a shrink weekly for childhood sexual abuse and violence. But it’s all up to me now. No excuses and no one is coming to save me. It’s all about choices and I want to make good choices for me now. This is my time!!
For us dad
I can't believe I made it 6 months!
It has not been easy, especially the first 3-4 months!
I still have those few out of the blue cravings/thoughts and it does catch me off guard. I think to
Myself why is this still happening, oh yeah the junkie mind.
The one that still gets to me is when I am getting ready to drive somewhere and it is raining and I think oh I need to smoke first...
So. I’m officially 5 days in. It’s intense right now. My mental health is not where I want it to be.
At at this moment I’m craving a smoke!!
I really don’t want to slip up but I feel like I NEED ONE!!!
Withdrawals are kicking my a$$ right now.
One of the most random amazing ways I've used to help quit is a sort of hypnotic, but Ural beat music I found on YouTube - here is the link: https://youtu.be/UrhlyWo0zto there are many like this if you go 'quit smoking music' into YouTube. I can say it does do wonders.
My reasons for quitting are definitely about health and relationships and mental health. I find my quoting for a few days really opens people up otherwise I find I get the cold shoulder quit alot and people listening to me will often go out the window. Maybe it's the smoking maybe it's something deeper I don't know but I do see improvement in my relationships when I manage without it only for a f...
Trying out the full step 2-3 nicotine patches program has proved very difficult for me. I'm having awful nightmares and finding it hard to sleep I am almost at the 5th week of the patch program and still cracking every now again when the anxiety is too much for me. However I have had a few days of non smoking in a row which is a big leap forward. It's my birthday today and I feel like crying it w...
Hi all. A story on here reminded me of why I wanted to quit, that was for my heart health but am many other reasons have come up. I suffered heart failure in 2018 but still I continued to smoke, even lying to doctors at the time. Nothing would stop me, such is the nicodemon. It’s heavy. Anyway it took until 7.3 weeks ago to finally get my headspace in the right place. I’m now just over 7 weeks qu...
Well its been 10 years on the 9th of november and i never went back on the smokes. I think im more healthier than i was ten years ago. I did have a heart attack so that was the decider. I must say though going cold turkey was tough. Anyway thats it i might come back and tell you when its been 20 years. So for those of you that want to give it up just stop it is hard but you will save a lot of mon...
I can’t believe I have had no cigarettes in 5 whole days. This is the 1st time in 20 years I didn’t go a day without a puff. I feel proud. I just want to keep going like this and I’ll be happy.
