I slipped up and trying to not go and buy a pack, so tough love needed please. Supported a longtime smoking friend through acute grief last night (including my own distress) had 2 smokes with her. I’m now making up reasons in my head to buy a pack, like- next few weeks will be very tough, I’ll be around her heaps, I don’t know how to manage this trauma. But at the same time I don’t want to withdr...
9 days smoke free now.
I have been using patches and they started to leave really red marks on my legs so I am now on a different patch to see if it will make a difference
Still going strong. ✅😁😁
I will not smoke with you today.
I have been trying to stop smoking for atleast 5 year's now, I am truly over the mind games and want to know how to get the right mindset everyone else seems to find easy?
Hi, Seven months QUIT now. Feeling good. I still have a thing for carrots! Got a lot easier as of late, no or zero temptation. Wishing you all the best.
Hello my quit forum friends, how are you all? It has been a while since I have posted, but I do like to pop in and hear about every ones experiences. Many of you have been long timers like Happiness et al, who give 100% support to all the newcomers, to all those who might be struggling and also to those like myself who have been quit for a longer period. In saying that I would like to send a spe...
Once I realized how much I’ve been lied to by “the powers that be”, I have been free. Today is Day... hmm don’t even know...

I’ve put on a few pounds which is ok with me and I’m aware of it.... I’ve noticed my energy i...
So Stopping nicotene this time has been very different from other quit attempts that I've made over the years..
One of the keys to my current success has been reading alot about other people's stories - their success, their challenges, insight and experience.
I also joined online forums. So good to feel supported and to feel that i was not alone! When i was feeling sick and tired during with...
I got a reminder on my phone today that I was 150 days clean off cigarettes and alcohol. But I think on checking this site it’s actually 144.
After my last post I hit a really difficult period with the “junkie thinking”, autumn had settled in, it was getting cooler and I couldn’t put my finger on why on EARTH with all the benefits I was feeling why I was constantly thinkin...
First week recap:
Status: Married, 3 kids(9,7,3)
My wife is a non-smoker, hates that I smoke, and is pretty much taking charge with everything while I become useless and suffer through the withdraws. She's very supportive, and gave me the okay to pretty much do anything that I needed to stop smoking.
I'm 32 years old.
I smoke about a pack and a half - 2 packs a day.
Longest time I've quit ...
Today is my 6 year and 1 day anniversary of being quit. Too busy trying to squander the $55 000 saved from the ash tray. (Not much luck there.) Nearly forgot! On these annual anniversaries, I think of those who responded to my posts and encouraged me when this quit journey had just started and was all so new to me. I hope the early responders are still smoke free. And, may all those just starting...
