After smoking for 35 years and trying everything else there is to try l made an appointment and saw Michael. Tomorrow l am 4 weeks smoke free and very confident that l won't ever smoke again. I still felt like smoking at times but found it much easier to resist and just not have one. I highly recommend this to anyone.

It has not been one bit easy to meet the demands of a smokefree life. It is easy in some respects, but I seem to fail in others. I am not over the cravings, but it seems to be getting better because I eat something or just have a glass or sip of water when they happen. I have become hyponatremic though, which means basically that I am over diluting my body. I have low sodium and chloride. It is h...
7 days ago I was prescribed Champix as I decided I had to quit smoking as I require open heart surgery. I was asked if now was a good time to quit by the doctor (I also have bipolar). He feared due to the stress, both mentally & physically it may cause complications in the lead up to my surgery. Mind you I don’t know when the surgery will happen but I have decided to be prepared. So in conjunctio...

I'm 49, Started smoking at 13. I'm 10months and 7 days clean. I had numerous quit times. 1st time was 3years, 2nd was 8 years. I have to say it did get harder with me every time I relapsed. I won't lie, I really enjoyed smoking and if I could still do it I would but I have witnessed the damage it's done to others. If I had 6 months to live then I would buy a pack right away. It is the hardest thi...
Phase one complete. You're about to embark upon a great journey. The biggest thing is being free....it's so liberating! It is amazing how quickly your body can heal itself. Breathe.
I encourage you to continue to peruse these stories and other resources on line. You are not alone. Happiness was my mentor. I wanted to quit first but she's the one who stepped off the ledge first. She was able t...
So it has been a bit over 6 weeks since I decided to quit. I faced a little stress last week and gave in to the desire to have a cig.
I thought it would taste awful and make me feel sick but it was as if I had never quit. The anxiety subsided, returned and I had another. I was afraid i had failed yet another quit attempt.
Once I was away from the stressful situation though, I no longer desire...
