This may not be an actual tip, but it is a question of concern that I am having during my first couple of months of staying cigarette free.
I have been more tired and my blood pressure seems to be higher than I noticed when I was smoking. I believe this will all subside in time, but I'm hoping I can hear some similar stories and how things DO get better.

Hi Y'All! Just wanted to check in. Today is my day 26 and I do feel like a different person not smoking. I still think about it but it's easier to get the thought out of my head whereas before in the earlier days or previous quit attempts I would obsess about it until I finally just went and bought that pack or smoked that smoke. Knowing I have that pack in my kitchen drawer eases the craving...
I just want to share my happiness of being smoke-free for 6 months with you as happiness increases if you share it with someone.
It was Sep 15, 2020, when I decided to quit smoking suddenly and found that this was the best decision of my life. I read Allen Carr's book, experiences of all here on iCanQuit. That helped me a lot while quitting.

Hi, I’m 20 days in and had a drink last night and I didn’t enjoy it without smoking 😏 it’s all I could think of so I stopped drinking! Does it get better?
I am three weeks today! Very exciting, in the past I have always struggled at this time, and always forgotten about the reasons I want to not smoke, it’s like all the short term benefits have been achieved and so I can’t see a point to keep going. This time it is different, I feel different, I just keep dreaming of that lovely smoke free woman that I want to look and be, and smell like in a years...
Just wanted to ask how everyone's experience like when they quit from week to week.

Anyways, on New Years Eve of 2021, I was rushed to the ER for a rapid heartbeat o...

But i have now been clean since December 27th. Around the end of november as i first went cold turkey style the stomach pain and gas and muscular back pain has been pretty intense, especially in the colon. I went to see my doctor and h...
Couple of days, on 6 January 2021 will be one year since quitting smoking for me and gaining the freedom of becoming a non-smoker.
Despite 2020 being one of the most difficult years for many, including myself, my father also unexpectedly passed away. There were many times I felt like folding but I didn’t... I didn’t post here this time last year, but I read through some of the posts of people th...
