Nearly 3 years without smoking
I feel much better
I smell better
better sence of taste
Even my migraine attacks became much less frequent now .
I'm currently on day 13 of my quit journey.
I have been using the strongest nicorette patch when I wake up.
Does anyone think it is wise for me to stop using the patches altogether?
Or should I cut down the strength of the patch first?
Sometimes I feel like I could go without the patch, but I'm worried that the cravings will be even more intense than they are now without ...
I had a relapse that lasted on and off for a few weeks. I felt horrible - really unhealthy and anxious and finally said to myself I don’t want to smoke my life and me is so much better without cigarettes.
I really believe that now. And seeing for real how just an occasional smoke keeps the addiction alive.
I now vow never to smoke again. There’s no comparison between life on smokes and life fre...
I quit by keep smoking until 14 or days and getting no cravings and then i simply told myself i feel sick because i was literraly sick from smokes while at the pub, so i stopped by not smoking at the pub.
I can't believe it's been nearly 10 weeks.
It has been so emotionally draining but I'm very proud I have not broken. Every other attempt I say I'll just have 1 and I'll feel better.
Then it's a couple a week won't hurt then I'm smoking again.
This time I said I can't have that one puff as I know it will all start from there. I feel a bit lost and it's still quite hard but I will keep going ...

I have shared a number of stories on here about successfully quitting nicotine/ smoking. But tonight I was feeling a bit overwhelmed and someone offered me a cigarette. I know it was an excuse and I’m feeling bad.
Another part of my excuse at the time was in saying that sometimes I really miss it. But what is it that I’m missing about it so much that I bummed one after almost 5 months quit ?
Hi I have tried to quit so many times in my 25 years of smoking. I recently tried patches and as I sweat alot they just keep coming off. I am going to try a reduction method this time with the mouth spray. Wish me luck and any tips would be awesome.
Just wanted to share that today is my 1 year anniversary of quitting! I wasn't successful at first and it took me a month of trying to actually quit. It was a challenge in the beginning but the last few months I haven't wanted to light up at all. Keep going if you are trying to quit and if you slip just keep trying, you can do it!
I have been really weak when it comes to quitting. I give in really easily. Stress,depression,low self esteem,low self worth,financial problems,loneliness,boredom,habit etc make it really hard. I’m giving it another go but I am not confident. I’m using patches which I have used many times before. I just want to get some time up and get the poison out of my system. Hopefully then it will become a ...
