As a never Quit Quitting Quitter, I found new tools for me to STAY Quit this time!
Picked my quit date. Threw away anything and all things related to smoking.
Accountability: Told my Family, Co-Workers, Friends, that I was quitting.
If I get an urge at work, I walk with one of my "smoking" friends, who won't smoke around me. I advised them I had to stay away from smoke. Period.
It has now been 10 months since I had a cigarette. I was smoking a pack a day and 1 day I just stopped with the aid of nicotine patches. The first 6 weeks were the hardest. At 4 weeks I was very anxious but i thought that it would be a huge waste to get this far and start smoking again. It is by no means easy but after 6 week the cravings started to subside. I still get the occasional feel for 1...
Hi all, just looking for someone to tell me I am normal. This is about my 4th attempt to stop smoking over the last couple of years.
I seem to get into a pattern, start well - first week I actually feel great. Then I seem to get to week 5/6 and feel awful. I have suffered previously from anxiety which seems to hit the roof. This morning I got up and all I want to do is cry and feel low. T...
1 whole month!
Very happy to be here. Smell, taste, fitness, breath, bank balance, breathing....all noticeable improvements. According to the app Ive saved $819, which is just ridiculous when you think about it. I was willingly paying that money to reduce my sense of smell, taste and fitness. Make it difficult to breathe and have stinky breath.
So happy I finally took the plunge and gave it aw...
Hi all. New to this site. I am 67 and have tried quitting with patches and gums and lozengers and vaps and on and on and on lol. Nothing helped. Went cold turkey 41 days ago and am still nicotene free. Feel like garbage though. Lots of aches and pains in the arm and mid back. The mid back is from a compressed disc i have had for years but the arms are new. Seem to be in a brain fog all day also...
Hi. 3.66 years quit. 1337 days that is and saved $34000 dollars and most of all probably my life. Great thanks to “ icanquit” and all my quit buddies over the years. I pop in from time to time just to remind myself how lucky I am. My list of positives grows each day. Thank You.
I m 9 month away from smoke.. may be its just time that I am feeling very low mentally and emotionally. Getting vision of a quiet and lonely place with no one else but me smoking my frustration off .
I know logically quitting is a right thing but sometimes I am too much lonely and sad to even don't know with whom I can share my feeling . I feel.very weak when I think of starting smoking again...
I had help to quit using Champix tablets.I know they arnt for everyone.I am yet to experience any side effects other than it takes a bit longer to get to sleep.I combated this by having the night time dose at 4pm or earlier.
I have been on this medication now for 4 weeks.
As far as im concerned,it has worked well for me so far.
After smoking for 35 years since i was 15, i cant believe the bene...
Dear all ,I am wondering how much I regretted after every smoke and before next one for over 20 years .
In my new smokefree version, life can be whatever but no regret anymore about smoke.
I am quite satisfied and happy to make it till now and it's worth. I am around my smoker frnds everyday for last one month, but hardly I want to have a puff. NOPE (Not one puff ever) is my mantra .
