You are my extended family here coz trust me that I can share without hesitation on this platform that once upon a time.. I was a SMOKER.
Yes I had no courage to socially admit to my family and friends (except the smoker company).
I always wanted to quit and this portal has helped me to stay connected and motivated as I can share my joy of quitting which I couldn't otherwise anyw...
Staying quit is the hardest part for me.
I had to reset my quit date.
17/6/19 12pm, 20 hours and 54 minutes.
Im trying not to beat myself up over my setback, and i called the quitline and have 'enrolled' myself in there program (i don't understand the quitline system) so hopefully with more support, i can stay quit this time.
Never give up on giving up.
I smoked my last cigarette on Jan 31st, 2019. I thought it would be impossible to quit smoking, but guess what!! I am succeeding. And it's not as difficult as I had thought it would be.
I do get cravings, but I am able to fend them off easily. In fact I am enjoying these moments of cravings. They are reminders of how cigarettes play with our minds. I don't want these ugly sticks to play with m...
I have not smoked for 5 days now and I don’t think I am craving nicotine I just feel very weepy
G'day guys, i have been 4 month quit now and i have been reading success stories all over so i decided to share mine, i'll try to make it short.

I started my Champix journey on Thursday, 24 January, 2019.
The reason I chose to stop smoking is because I have had Pneumonia and a very bad chest infection in the last 3 months. At the age of 40 and after being a smoker for 27 years, 30 cigarettes a day (more if I go out drinking with friends) I realise that my health is deteriorating and decided to start living a healthier life. I have have...
I had not tried quitting for decades. Then i had no idea how to go about it. Cutting down and will power did not work 35 years ago . The patch and Zyban were both just a prescription with no help lines or psychological advice.
The most helpful in my quit was the quit line i first used. (this one is much better)It had so many success stories and friendly support that it gave me the confidence ...
On day 1, day 365 seemed forever away. Today is day 365! On the days you feel like packing it in, remember that each day adds up and one day it’ll be day 365!
Looking forward to new milestones now like day 500 and day 1000!

I visited my doctors office and he said he cannot see a reason for why i have all these symptoms he tried to give me PPi's for the reflux but it didnt really work, then he tried to give me astma spray and tell me to buy antihistamines and it ...
Hi people. I posted a couple of times earlier on my journey. Ive reached 2 weeks, might not seem like much, it’s huge to me! I gave up when pregnant and just spoke to my son at 21 years and Realised I have smoked all his life. After breastfeeding. 2 weeks in feels doable. I’m sick of thinking about it because I’m over it so look forward to the day when it’s not on my mind at all. My sister visit...
