I was a smoker for more than 20 years and am now I am on Day 14 of being smoke free! I have had some days where the craving was pretty strong I thought I would cave, but a few deep breaths and the craving passed. I am using patches and find these are helping a lot however I am really exhausted from this insomnia I experience every night for the past week - I am awake until around 3:00am and it’s ...
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 .
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.

had to have a 1 hr MRI last week. Being claustrophobic & having breathing troubles when on my back had me very worried (panic stricken), 1 hr in the machine, dozed off & the time passed quickly. Realised later, I have not been able to lie on my back & breathe through my nose for years - did for one hour in the machine. Only 20 days smoke free & I can do this!!
I’ve been a smoker for 7 years non stop. I’ve only tried to stop twice and could only go through a day. That was also feeling immensely miserable, with immediate flu like symptoms after 4 hours to no smoking. But this time I was very prepared to stop. I was done with smoking mentally.
