Day 2. The amount of times I've gone to reach for a cigarette without thinking is ridiculous. Realising how much I actually smoked..after food, on the toilet, after the toilet, hanging out washing, driving,..smoking was everywhere with me..
Hey everyone, I'm on day 31 of not smoking. I'm very much still struggling with anxiety, depression, and insomnia. 3 nights last week I only slept for an hour each night. I feel like I can't handle really much of any stress without being entirely anxious for the entire day. Im curious if anyone has gone through these same withdrawal symptoms. I was a 17 year smoker. If you have any tips for me, p...
I have been smoking for 50 Years. Tried everything to quit but was rarely successful past a few days.This time I became, and remain, determined to beat these things. I expected to have cravings...and I got them in spades...still do almost constantly. I have experienced roller coaster emotions from the depths of depression to almost feeling good about my decision. My body aches, my sleep is either...
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!
Day 40 today I feel great love the taste of my food and saving $200 a week that alone is motivation and every time I think I want a smoke I look at my mountain bike I bought with my smoke money and the urge goes away. Stay strong everyone it really is worth it keep busy.

I am currently on day 59, I started off with NRT and came off that about 3 weeks ago. I have been doing really well, not thinking that much into it. I have put on around 5kgs and now my self esteem is struggling. I work 2 jobs and study full time at uni = stress. I am finding myself procrastinating and feeling unfocused whilst trying to complete assignments. Today has been exceptionally hard for ...
TRYING to give up today
TRYING not to look like a failure
I’m TRYING to focus
TRYING too quit again
TRYING hard to keep the faith
TRY my best again and again
TRY my best to quit
TRYING harder than ever
Just keep TRYING hard
Back to TRY again
TRYING hard now to not smoke
TRYING hard to convince myself
TRYING hard to fight the urge
Even if I slip up, I'll TRY again
If you relapse just...
Champix. Nothing else works for me. Will power certainly didn't work for me. In my expereince and opinion champix will work when it works, no timeframe. Just keep taking until you notice yourself smoking less and less and the need for a cig has become weaker. Then test if how long you can go without. When it is forever you are there. Keep taking the course beyond the quit point. Lastly - NEVER be...
