One day away from 1 week smoke free guys! I can’t thank those who replied to my last post enough, on my bad days I’ve gone back and flicked through the messages. And believe me considering it’s only been 6 days it feels like I’ve had 20 bad days 😫 But saying that just makes me realise how far I’ve come already, how many times I’ve told myself no and managed not to give into temptation (my partne...

Hi everyone. I am off again for a bit more surgery on Thursday this time on the head 😔😔 we are hoping it is not related to my thyroid problem.
I am been very positive about this.
And times like this I am glad that I am a none smoker now so I can heal alot better and faster than we would as smokers.. 1 month and 2 days down and I'm proud.
I do notice no whizzing and coughing anymore

So I’m sat here eating an apple when I’d love to go and light a cigarette right now! I’ve been using nicotine patches to cut down since 06/07/20 and my quit date I set myself was yesterday 10/07/20, not because I felt the need to rush but because I found it SO easy to go from 15+ a day to just one the day before I quit, that I didn’t even enjoy! I can’t shake the cravings and the actually the thi...
Day 2 on champix feeling pretty average 🤢 please tell me it doesn't last the whole course!
I really appreciate the comments and words of encouragement after sharing my story yesterday, today is my second quit day and its very painful to be honest im trying to keep strong and I will keep strong, 3 reasons keep me going: My health, My daughter and my partner who really wants to see me quit... im doing this and I shall succeed. Ow and reading a book helps very much, keeping m...
Day 19 hey! Doing ok! Feeling pretty spacey though and I am wondering if thats ok?
I don't know how many times ive tried to quit, but Its about time i dedicate myself and fight the addiction day by day because I feel if I continue I am being selfish towards my health and my daughter who needs me.
I'm glad that I can say that I passed 7th week and I have also reached 50 days mark.. In others words, it's unbelievable for me..
This week was significant.. begining of week was hard.. I was suprised and also angry that it is.. but I started to concentrate on things what I need to do and partially I want, so my head was busy and days passed quicklier and easier. end of week I f...
I'm onto day 25. I have tried countless times to quit. I had given up for a few years and all was good. I had some personal experiences and found myself back on the darts again hooked.
I'm onto day 25 and feeling great. I slipped up 2 weeks ago Saturday night I had 1, i was disappointed in myself, but didn't berate myself and kept on going with the help of lozenges NRT. I think that if you slip ...
@day 101, shortness of breath and cough periodically appear.they come and go. 3days,3week, 3months ..my cravings was intense at this point. Also I gain weight 😭😭😭 I can't stop eating! Omg!
Hi guys. It has been 14 days since I last smoked. I have been feeling dizzy, nauseous, disoriented and downright frustrated. Please let me now how long these symptoms last for. I went cold turkey one fine Sunday but the persistent fatigue makes me feel like smoking is the solution to feeling myself again.
I"m taking Champix tablets Started taking them 24/June and quit on the 29/june now on the last few days I"m getting Nausea and tired has anyone else had this any tips.
So I’ve made it to 185 smoke free. I firstly tried to give up 400 days ago unsuccessful went back after 3 weeks. On January 1st I woke up hungover like many others and thought this is it. I quit alcohol too. I haven’t looked back. My partner did the same. We used to drink smoke and argue over stupid things alcohol was not my friend! It’s so good to be able to have a nice dinner enjoy conv...
I decided to quit smoking 7 months ago using nicotine patches to help. I am 32 years old and smoked for 16 years, so half my life before this round of quit. After the first few weeks I noticed that I was coughing up phlegm that had gray/black in it. I assumed this might be normal after quitting smoking but I'm also a little worried. I have an appointment this week to get checked out, but I'm wond...
July 1 will be 2 months smoke free and man this was a really tough ride. My anxiety is sill rough right now . I work out everyday slowly to get back in sharp and it works but I can’t breathe sometimes . I still have shortness of breathe but it feels good to breathe and not wheeze. When does everything gets better ?
For the past 2 weeks i have started to get tingling sensations in my left foot and hands did anyone else get these symptoms. It has been 14 weeks since i stopped smoking
Just wanting to thank all these people that have come out with their support. I just feel so much better and the words of support that have been written seem like the strongest weapon that I possess in my effort to give up.
Almost a month since I decided to drastically cut back after 45 years figuring that it is never too late. On 9 June 2020 I had total knee replacement surgery which is an agonising recovery period especially for the 1st two weeks. Now into week 4 and handling the craving ok
My main reason for staying off them is the fear of infection to the area due to lack of blood circulation and contaminatio...
I wanted to share my story, maybe it will be helpful for somebody out there. I haven't been on the platform for more than 1.5 years. It has been quite a ride. I was the worst nicotine addict possible, 35 years, chain smoking the past 15 years.
The first 6 months were so hard for me and yet very easy, because it never ever crossed my mind to start smoking again. My mindset real...

I'm in the 16. All going super except the second week I stay nausious en very sleepy. I also don't feel like smoking but when I do lit a cigarette out of habit, I immediately regret it and can't even smoke half the no taste cigarette. If you don't feel like smoking, then DONT. Mind shuffle. It's only out of habit. I'm sticking to program though it makes me very nausious and sleepy now. I think by...

Hi everyone just filling you all in.
I do have a friend who is still a smoker and in allen carrs book he said carry on seeing your friends and be social and not to change anything so I didn't change anything and went to see my friend.
