Today is the day! I've been taking Champix for the last 7 days and today is my quit day. So far it has been working great, whenever I light up and inhale I don't get any feeling from it, so why light up?
I've only smoked 3-4 the last view days, down from 25. My biggest downfall is that my husband continues to smoke. We've always smoked outside and just knowing he is going in the garden gives m...
Hey guys first time posting. Right now the 4th day is starting for me. I have been constantly thinking about cigarettes. Right now I am at the gym, and I feel awesome. My breathing is already improving. Stay strong! No more smoking!
I am so happy to share that it's been 7Months since I had my last cigarette.
I am travelling and in the same hotel where I traveled 7 Month ago after quit and was struggling like a addict to smoke. This time I have no such cravings.
I am day five smoke free
Today is HARD
I have been using patches 21mg
Today I wanted to relax in a hot tub so hadn't put a patch on untill 3pm.
Its been and emotional rollercoaster, I have had to pull the will power out today!
Feel like crawling into a ball and hiding.
I refuse to go back I never ever want to feel like this again.
Counting down the days I need this to get easier.
KEEP A LIST of reasons why you are quitting. Mine is typed and is three pages long.

I agree that it increases your appetite and that sleeping is a bit harder, but the eating urge only lasted for a couple...
Often I am having trouble with boredom when I am waiting to do something or just sitting around. I sat to my self I need to just relax, try doing breathing exercises but find it very hard.
Since I have started this non smoking I have locked my self away not going anywhere. Tomorrow I need to meet with other people and while it makes me feel anxious remain hopeful that I will handle my feelings...
I was a heavy smoker! Sunday 28th February 2019 when I finished my last packet I said to myself “No more”! With the help of government subsidized patches with a prescription from Drs it actually hasn’t been as hard as I expected.
I’m selling my home, my marriage is just about ruined & we have a little more debt that I simply want paid off!
I also have a 16 year old autistic son! I can’t affo...
Day one and I jumped into my car after not having a cigarette since 6pm yesterday and all I can smell is stale cigarettes so to keep my self busy and not thinking of cigarettes I cleaned , vacuumed and deodorised my car from top to bottom
Started coughing blood on 21/02/2019 gave up smoking straight away, as of today 01/03/2019 8 days no smoking, brought a nicorette quickmist but I believe will power is working better, I only use the spray as a mark of respect after paying $30 for it, I am doing more as in going out, for exsample I went to Fairfield yeserday(live in Granville) but I had to walk 300-400mts to the station, when I g...
