    Hey all, Can't believe I'm able to say that I've been smoke free for 7 weeks and I'm super proud of myself. I barely think about smoking anymore and am just about off all nrt. A huge thank you to Johnnie for your advice because I've taken it and now go for hours at a time with none. Good luck all and stay strong.

    49 days smoke free, 24 days off NRT, taking 100mg Bupropion each morning, how many times I've trying quitting in 30 years? Once and that day was March 9th, 2017. After numerous hours of searching on the internet, I really only wanted to know one thing. When will it start to get better for me? This is the main question I wanted answered ever since I quit 7 weeks ago. I've been keeping a detail...

    Back on track!

    Ok, I'm back on my journey and determined to succeed once again. I know I can, & I know what can happen if I slip up again. Even more reason to be strong. 2 full days free and have hardly given cigarettes a thought. Still a long way to go to get back to my recent 60 days free, but each and every day counts. In my mind I detest cigarettes but even though I slipped, I see the past few weeks as...

    I am pretty blown away that I haven't smoked in just over a month. I see people smoking and remind myself that they are slaves to the addiction. They are not enjoying the ciggie, as much as it looks like they are, more they are trying to feel like I NOW DO! The smoke is a top-up, trying to feel normal. I am sleeping better, I am WAY more energetic. I am proud and still pretty confident. It's pret...

    Two Weeks In

    Posted in Quit experiences 25 Apr 2017

    So I am 14 days as a non-smoker. Other than a bothersome cough (which I did not have when I smoked) I am trucking along. I miss smoking. But I feel pretty good considering a 25 year smoking career of a pack per day. Mostly what motivates me now is never wanting to experience having to quit again. Ha!! I do still have cravings, although they seem much more stress/habit related than an actual need ...

    Getting better at it!

    Posted in Quit experiences 22 Apr 2017

    Day 8 today and feeling really positive. I am on my 6th week of champix for the third time. I never stopped smoking last time, but thought it worth a try again. I was having a hard time totally stopping, and kept getting just one more packet. This made me feel weak and miserable. I realised I had to make some positive changes to give me a bit of strength. Before my quit day I cut most alcohol and...
