You are my extended family here coz trust me that I can share without hesitation on this platform that once upon a time.. I was a SMOKER.
Yes I had no courage to socially admit to my family and friends (except the smoker company).
I always wanted to quit and this portal has helped me to stay connected and motivated as I can share my joy of quitting which I couldn't otherwise anyw...
I smoked my last cigarette on Jan 31st, 2019. I thought it would be impossible to quit smoking, but guess what!! I am succeeding. And it's not as difficult as I had thought it would be.
I do get cravings, but I am able to fend them off easily. In fact I am enjoying these moments of cravings. They are reminders of how cigarettes play with our minds. I don't want these ugly sticks to play with m...
3rd day of champix, no real change yet. Waiting anxiously for it to kick in
Hi everyone I have come to this site regularly for the past couple of years as I know there is an understanding of how challenging the quit journey can be and I am not alone.
After several periods of quitting one for 2 years I know how just 1 smoke can send you back to being a regular smoker.
After smoking for over 45 years I am going to recommence my quit journey again.
I had quit for 3 month...
What do i expect my second week on campix?

I've tried to quit smoking 3 times already. The first time I didn't smoke for almost 2 months but I put on 6kg and as soon as the stress came back I started smoking again.
What is the best way to start? Would you use nicotine patch or gums and which one is best? How did you deal with the hunger and gain weight? How did you deal with the stress?
I finally gave up smoking 22 years ago after about 6 attempts. I’ve never looked back. The key is not to give up giving up. It’s very hard to do and when you succeed you know you have proved a lot to yourself about your own strength. I found nicotine patches got me through the first weeks. All the best!
