Need to give this up for my kids
only 8 days for me but what a difference in breathing already, a bit hard changing routines ingrained over close on 50 yrs but I wish I'd made the effort much sooner
Hi all thought I would give you an update on how things are going. I did do an update on day three embedded in the comment section of my last post. I was seeking some input from you all and still am seeking input on how much longer to the cravings and withdrawal symptoms last. I hit the worst wall on day 3 of cold turkey. Truly thought I was going insane. But made it. Day 4 and 5 (today) better...
I am not the type of smoker that can survive cold turkey.
I lost my patches, i am part way through packing to move house so i can live with my partner and son, i might have left them at my partners a 2 hour drive away, i don't have time to get them if thats the case.
I am hoping to borrow money off my dad to get more patches.
At the moment i am surviving off as gross as it sounds, old used pa...
I was sort of pushed into my quit, having been in the hospital with an infection. So I didn't prepare myself -- or even really want to quit. (Well I guess we all want to...)

This week I have been in Spain. Lots of people happil...
Can anyone advise me I wake up several times a night but come 4 or 5 am I am at my worse with my body screaming for a smoke. I have been just having a couple of drags but I WANT TO QUIT. Does anyone have any ideas what I can do as I can not go back to sleep pulling my hair out?
This is my first post for 2019 and I am glad to say I have made three figures, today is day 130 (129 days completed). My quit journey has been similar to Lyn4677 and I’m glad to also declare that I am still smoke free. Thoughts of smoking still come up but I have come too far to start smoking again.
Health better and need to stop putting money away in envelope as I have saved over $3600 whic...
Start of week 3. I still feel like I could smoke now but my body feels so much better. I feel cleaner and more fresh.
I am not really financially driven it would be cool to know more about the physical changes. My taste and smell are better and my eyes and skin too. ha ha. how strange
Hi all, well here I go AGAIN giving up. I am in a great state of mind this time, feeling very positive. I am on day 3 using Champix and motivation tapes. I feel I am coping better with cravings when I am alone. I drink heaps of water and breathe ALOT, telling myself I can do this!! Smoking has controlled my life and my health and now it is time I take control before they kill me!! I have had a b...
