It's been 12 days now since a throw that nasty in the garbage. Been smoking for 20 years now, more than half of my existence. Decided to quit because i love my life more than that packed dried leaves in a filter. Everyday is a struggle for me, anxiety breaks in and many sleepless nights. But im hopeful that it will be better soon. I always pray to GOD to give me a peaceful sleep and sound ...
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...

I am taking my quitting smoking as my number one priority in life. I feel very sick as I on Champix and I smoked approx 20 a day. I am just looking after myself. Sleeping when I need to and being kind to myself. I feel very sick and depressed but I know it will pass. My family and children desperately want me to stop, so they are bending over backwards to help. 💜🙏 I’m worth it and this is my cu...
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 .
