I live in Perth and apparently theres no Zyban to be had anywhere. All Chemists are out and not expecting anymore till end of July. Luckily, Ive got past that initial cravings phase so I should be ok, but could be a real problem for people just starting or coming off their 1st short prescription.
Is it the same in other states?
This is my second quit. In 2010 I quit smoking cigarette using NRT.I used the patch for about 3 weeks but then I discovered the inhaler and switched to that. I got addicted to the inhaler and now 9 years later I am going through my second quit. After 9 years I started to get cravings for cigarettes and found the inhaler was nt working, so I started the patches. One day I had a cigarette and that ...
I have tried numerous times to quit but I am determined to not give in this time. I have the quit app, patches and nicotine gum, I am on day 2 today, I won’t lie otherwise I would be lying to myself but... I have had 5 smokes since I started this attempt but this morning I had one rollie and I started coughing my guys up. It’s hard because my mother smokes and she lives with me but... I went all ...
1 whole month!
Very happy to be here. Smell, taste, fitness, breath, bank balance, breathing....all noticeable improvements. According to the app Ive saved $819, which is just ridiculous when you think about it. I was willingly paying that money to reduce my sense of smell, taste and fitness. Make it difficult to breathe and have stinky breath.
So happy I finally took the plunge and gave it aw...
Today is the 3rd day of my current quit. I've been smoking more than a pack for 20 years. Never tried to quit, till a year ago. I've tried and failed so many times this last year though...my longest quit was 21 days...not easy, not easy at all...In the beginning I used to feel bad when I ruined a quit, but lately I don't care, it´s becoming part of the addiction and that's not good.
Hi all. New to this site. I am 67 and have tried quitting with patches and gums and lozengers and vaps and on and on and on lol. Nothing helped. Went cold turkey 41 days ago and am still nicotene free. Feel like garbage though. Lots of aches and pains in the arm and mid back. The mid back is from a compressed disc i have had for years but the arms are new. Seem to be in a brain fog all day also...
Hit the 3 week mark today!
Had another first in my quit experience 2 days ago.....getting off an airplane. The wife and I flew to Melbourne for a short stay, and normally upon arrival it would see me scampering outside for a smoke while she wited at baggage claim. Had a bit of an urge but no real craving. Watched others heading out the door for one.
Another first...staying at a hotel. Non smoki...
Hi back again ,after relapsing for a few months, onto day 5 smoke free and feeling great
Hi everyone, I have been quit for 3 months and I have had just about every withdrawal. Now that I have beat the physical withdrawals, I am still dealing with the anxiety. It is better than it has been but it is still much more than I’ve ever dealt with before. Looking for help with how long it took to feel like yourself again? I heard for most it can be 6 months. Guess I’ll take it one day at a t...
I’m 29 and I have decided to quit smoking since 10 days ago and I’m still on it.
I wanna go and see a doctor to check how much damage has been done during these 8 damn years of smoking! But there is something that is scaring me!
It’s been 2 days that I’ve been having heart pains and my chest is heavy!
Before quitting I didn’t have any of these problems.
Anybody here has the same ...
