Hello my non-smoking and soon to be non-smoking friends. Yippee!! After decades of smoking, I have been a non-smoker for 3 weeks without a single puff! If I can do it anyone can do it!
The number of attempts I have had are sadly in the double digits. I have NEVER made it 3 entire weeks. I now believe it's never too late and you are never too old!!! I am beginning to see subtle benefits and I ...
Hi, everyone! - Percy checking in...
Well, I've had a mixed sort of week.
Firstly, I haven't toyed with the idea of a cigarette at all - not once. I believe this is entirely down to the Allen Carr book, which I have taken everywhere with me. If I have a spare five minutes, I read from this book. In fact, reading the book has taken the place of smoking itself - I curl up in a chair for t...
I remember the last cigarette I had. I don’t remember enjoying it, and I wanted another one but It was 1201am only quit date so I refrained. The only was I have had success, and I have made 1 month before, is without alcohol. No drinks and no ciggies is easy for me. Now all I have to do is either never drink again, or get a handle on it! Wondering how long I should wait to have a beer, it won’t b...
21 days today. No more cravings and smoking feels like a distant memory! I dreamt 2 days ago that I smoked a cigarette and was angry about it( in my dream). I was so happy and relieved when I woke up. Don't know why I had the dream in the first place cause I wasn't thinking about smoking! any hints???
Day 24 SF. Many many quit attempts. Longest quit time was 6?weeks about 3 years ago. This time I’m ready to make sure it’s a permanent change.
My motto is
I borrowed that from elsewhere but find it a very powerful reminder that I will always be just one puff away from going back to full blown smoking addiction. Using Nicotine patches is helpful for me. My first ...
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 quit on April 28th... not one puff, not one gum, not one vape, totally cold turkey...smoked for...hmm... 50-14... whatever that is... don’t want to get caught up in “numbers”.... I’ve put on a few pounds which is ok with me and I’m aware of it.... I’ve noticed my energy i...
This it the 3rd week and I must say i was happy in the first 2 weeks to not smoke. But boredom and lack of anything to so set in and i bought a pack and another in the 3rd week. I found out i don't enjoy it as much but unable to stay away.
I was performing better at the gym and my runs but now feels like I am tossing it away.
Any tips or tricks to quit buying a pack and staying that...
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.
Although it was an easy ...
