This is day 59 for me.
I was using NR patches and a CBD pen for cravings.
Have been trying to do without either one.
I'm not having a lot of luck. I absolutely cannot go back to smoking. This is just a bad day.
I have set my quit at 4pm today.
Iknow ithasonly been 3 minutes. Maybe more when this is published.
I have struggled to stay quit, but no more excuses. I am committing to quitting.
I am about to move house so i will be using the move to keep me busy.

I was just reminded by our host that it's now been one year since I put that lighter down.
Most memorable moment? My 8 year old recently had his birthday and I got told off for not having a cigarette lighter to light his candles. I made a promise to myself that I'll buy a lighter and light his candles for his 18th birthday cake.
Kinda' feel doing what I did, kicking that 40 year habit, wi...

Hi folks I am on day 36 ...I think. Only counted the first 30 days. I quit 1 January.
I have made one other post here about how challenging I have found the unexpected psychological journey of quitting. A bit ill prepared and perhaps ignorant but maybe serendipitous that I was unaware and have had to just wade through it.
When I started 1 January I needed the nicotine patch. I needed to kn...
So so thankful that it has been a year since I quit. I can only attribute the success to my Lord and Savior and to this site and everyone's support, hints and tips. Some things that were shared that helped me was: Tell yourself you are NOT a smoker! You are dealing with a Nicodemon! Why pick up a cigarette again and have to go over what you just did to pull through!
No doubt - the first fe...
I’ve made Day 38; it was too distant to even see on Day 1 but it’s here despite the Day 31 drama. On Day 31 I’d determined that I was smoke free and was going to be so for the rest of my life. I most definitely wasn’t nicotine free though; I’d used NRT (lozenges) to get me smoke free and was still feeding my nicotine addiction with them.
The suggestions I got from this forum ranged from bein...
So when I was 32 years old and after on again off again smoking cigarettes since the age of 15, I decided on giving a quit for good. My job at that time ( this was 1988 or so ) encouraged us to give them up, even had smoking cessation classes, and paid for a new product on market nicotine gum. Now all these tools enabled me to finally give up those nasty things, My real quit was due to seeing ...
Some medical professionals advise use of nicotine substitutes for a slow and gradual cessation. 15yrs ago on a new years eve at the stoke of midnight I stopped cigarettes and alcohol together cold turkey. Lasted 5 yrs until seeing a pub band and had a drink and cigarette. Have been now alcohol free 5yrs, so don't have that as a tempter to also smoke
