The secret to quitting is willpower. If you realy want to quit you can do it. I did with the help of Champix and this site. Three yers in and feeling proud. Give up the filthy stinkig habit and you will fell much better.
Who would have ever thought that I would quit smoking after 43 plus years. Not I in my wildest dreams. Which reminds me that for a second time, i dreamed of smoking, was appalled and thankful it was a dream....or rather a nightmare.
I got an e-mail first thing this morning congratulating me on my one year quit. Despite some reminders of the old days, I can honestly say that I never dwell on ...
It’s still shocking that I quit cigarettes 1st try. I’m 33 and smoked since 13! 20 years of fags and I gave up 1st time with champix which in my view is a wonder drug. I do t know why there are nicotine replacement ads on TV, when this drug actually makes you not want to smoke. Having said that, I’m struggling with my emotions. I’m so upset, angry and sad as well as happyish and I have no idea wh...
I am 59 days quit today. Every single blood test and scan is normal. I am grateful beyond belief and realise that smoking can cause many medical conditions to crop up not just cancer. I was lucky my “cure” was to quit. Keep going everyone. We all know in our heart of hearts it’s killing us. Be strong. We’re not losing anything and we are gaining everything 😁👍
I am at 544 days quit now after 48 years of being a slave to it. I wanted to share an experience that I had a few days ago.....I was out with friends....none of them smoke...all of a sudden I felt the greatest urge to have a smoke that I have experienced so far. It came out of no where....I thought I was over ever craving again. That craving stayed with me for the rest of the day.
Hey guys 3rd time posting here, i couldn't post on my anniversary and i found the opportunity to write today. It's been 1 year and 16 days since i last smoked, and i feel great and everything. I have started excercising since i quit smoking and i am in a great shape. I don't think i will ever go back to smoking again, even though i still am attracted to it for example when i see someone smoking e...
I am smokefree for about 119 days. I was having trouble far into quitting and got into nicotine gum. It works with cravings better than patches, I believe. Although there are some side effects like vivid dreams, I don't mind. Smoking was hard enough with that, especially when caffeine was involved and harsh day-to-day experiences.
It is so good to be smokefree at 119 days though. I was laughi...
Since I quit smoking I can barely breath, while before i didn't have any problems like this when I smoked. Is it normal? How long will it last? It's just the second day without cigarettes for me.
I want to thank you all for your help, encouragement and experiences on this forum. It's helped me get to the 6 month milestone unscathed. Its hard to begin to list all the benefits of being smoke free but freedom from the nicotine slavery, health and wealth all rate highly. After reaching 3months I set a new goal of losing the 6 kilos I'd gained and am pleased to have only 100g to go. I went on ...
Did anyone else experience metal taste in their mouth and everything taste like metal?
I know that I am getting my taste buds back. But the metal taste is something new.
