after 30 years of smoking I truly got tired of being winded and tired of smelling like an ashtray! I got tired of cigarettes controlling me!
Today is day 17 and I've done it all cold turkey! I'm a little dizzy today and have insomnia but I am taking each day minute by minute.
It’s been 5 blissful weeks of non smoking

I am considering using Non nicotine vape pen to try to cure my anxiety - has anyone else used these and if so have they helped. I am now 42 days smoke and nicotine free after going cold turkey and dont want to use any nicotine replacement but I am struggling so wondered if these may help? Anyone got any ideas?
So it has been a bit over 6 weeks since I decided to quit. I faced a little stress last week and gave in to the desire to have a cig.
I thought it would taste awful and make me feel sick but it was as if I had never quit. The anxiety subsided, returned and I had another. I was afraid i had failed yet another quit attempt.

Well just over a month now since my last smoke. I must say I do miss it but have no intentions of going back. I have literally so much time on my hands. It’s amazing how much time nicotine takes from you. I love having saved so much already not to mention breathing better. I do get a little bored though. The last couple of days I’ve craved more than i would like but still holding strong. Hope eve...
