9 days smoke free now.
I have been using patches and they started to leave really red marks on my legs so I am now on a different patch to see if it will make a difference
Still going strong. ✅😁😁
I will not smoke with you today.
I will never ever give up...Even if I fall once, twice or a hundredth time...I will fight this terrible habit/addiction called 'SMOKING/NICOTINE'...
Lovely to read all your stories/experiences. Keeps the fire in me still burning to give up 'SMOKING'. So this is my 7th day smoke free. For some reason my WILLPOWER wears off between now and Day -21...Not this time though...I will continue to fi...
21 days today. No more cravings and smoking feels like a distant memory! I dreamt 2 days ago that I smoked a cigarette and was angry about it( in my dream). I was so happy and relieved when I woke up. Don't know why I had the dream in the first place cause I wasn't thinking about smoking! any hints???
Hi all :-)
Just wondering if there are others out there who already suffered with anxiety and depression BEFORE they quit smoking and what affect did quitting have on ur already existing mental health?
Also, if it made ur anxiety worse for the first week or 2, did it then begin to get better?
Day 24 SF. Many many quit attempts. Longest quit time was 6?weeks about 3 years ago. This time I’m ready to make sure it’s a permanent change.
My motto is
I borrowed that from elsewhere but find it a very powerful reminder that I will always be just one puff away from going back to full blown smoking addiction. Using Nicotine patches is helpful for me. My first ...
A bit of a struggle getting through a weekend, but I am surviving. Taking naps and going to bed early to avoid cravings. Cold turkey and lot's of celery sticks!!
Today is seven weeks smoke free cold turkey for me which totally blows my mind when I actually think about how did this happen 🙏 I never gave up on trying to give up. I always wanted to return to that pure state of being that I was before this addiction took over. I don't think I truly believed that I could be a nonsmoker again until now, until this attempt. I love no longer being a slave to the...
I am back and I feel fine! I've had some urges but I remind myself they are only thoughts. It's all in the mind. I worked hard to change my mindset. Read and viewed about all the bad stuff smoking does and drilled it into my head. It does absolutely nothing for me. Also read these great posts about how awesome it is once a non-smoker. Thank you all for your posts. I know it's only day 5 so I don'...
I am really frustrated today. I finished my Champix starter pack and I am 32 days quit, however, there is now a disruption in the chamipx supply and I cant get any till August. I am using Quitly which is great but would be nice to not have a disruption in my Champix course to allow time for new routines and habits etc to be embedded.
I have been trying to stop smoking for atleast 5 year's now, I am truly over the mind games and want to know how to get the right mindset everyone else seems to find easy?
