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.
Hello my friends! It has been a while since I have checked in. With having to find a new residence and then moving, it's been a busy time.
It's my 35 week anniversary of quitting today. I couldn't have done it without all of you. Your support was so instrumental in my quit process.
I only hope that all of you have been as blessed as I have.
So after 43 years of smoking, I had never had any luck stopping. I decided one day, while coughing due to pneumonia, that it was time to stop for good.
My 25 year old son was coming to stay with me for a while and I did not want to have him smelling that smoke as he did not smoke himself.
So I stopped, just like that, I had my resolve to stop for good and just did it.
I have my moments that ...
Decided to log back in and see how folks are tracking. It had been a while since I visited, maybe late April. I found a few stories that sounded familiar - when does it get better ? when does the anxiety go? etc...I can remember those days well and my heart ached for these folks. So I commented for these folk as I know when I was asking similar things many of you encouraged me. So thankf...
As far as my family & friends knows I haven't had a cigarette since 29.05.2019. I was going strong for 2 weeks and an unforeseen incident at the office lead me straight back to the nicotine monster. I ONLY smoke at the office, not at home or at social/family events.
I feel guilty for keeping this a secret from my husband, friends and extended family. I feel anxious when I think I think I can't...
After so many years of loaded guilt , self destruction, fake happiness due to the smoking addiction, I am able almost 10 month guilt free, really happy that I have not smoked.
After months of hot and sweaty climate, finally it rained for a long time washing away all the negativity and leaving behind happy feelings and a fresh evening . Normally I would have smoked out of joy but now I enjoy...
For the first time i had a dream that i smoked a cigarette. I do not recall it clearly, but i do remember that i lit a second one later and put it out after a couple of drags feeling terrible about the slip. I remembered it while brushing my teeth this morning, but knew that it was a dream, thankfully .
At 250 Smoke free days, I wondered what may have triggered it.
Last night hubby and i ...
Well my friends and fellow quitters. Today I hit the milestone of being quit for one year. Needless to say I am overjoyed that I have made it. When i first quit and joined this forum, I have to say that I was so envious of those members who were in their months, year or years quit. Today I can say that I have battled the war and come out the other end. I made myself hate the disgusting things a f...
Remembering that it’s ok to think of a cigarette every now and then has helped me to not spark up again. I sometimes think of Tbone stake, doesn’t mean I have to get all anxious and run to the supermarket to buy a stake.
Tomorrow marks my 2 and a half year cold turkey quit. I rarely log on the site anymore, but do log on to see a few individuals that are around the same quit period as me. Unfortunately, although it has been 2 and a half years, the nico-demon has made a reappearance. I have decided I will be reading Alan Carr's Easy Way to Quit again (I find his book invaluable as a tool to take away the negotiati...
