Hello everyone here, thank you so much for your support, still on track it been one and half here now I quit smoking. Some how better, still some body aches, now feeling left side pain all the time. My heart hurt a lot with pains and my neck and back sometimes out of breathe, but I still manage on track. I had done many texts all negative, I really don’t know what to do anymore. Please any advice...
Today is day 15 without cigarettes and to my surprise it has been relatively easy once I made my mind up. It certainly helped thinking how if I got COVID I would most certainly die after smoking for 38 years. I know however, I am not out of the woods I have been in lockdown with non-smokers, so what happens when I venture out and am around smokers. My best mates are all smokers, what do I do? Av...
Hi everyone :)
I hope you’re all doing well with quitting or preparing to quit.
I’m on day 10 now. I’ve been reading and knitting a lot, both distractions I decided to do before I quit. It’s getting a bit easier now but I’m really worried to let my guard down, I’ve done that too many times.
How do you stay quit? How do you remind yourself that you want to stay quit? When I quit for 10 ...
I am proud to say I have reached day 12 and have not slipped once, not that I haven't thought about it though! Day 7, 8 and 9 were particularly hard and I really needed to stay focused on my quit. I just kept telling myself that it is the addiction talking, I dont really want a cigarette and once this passes I will be fine. I am a mum of 2 girls, a 13 and 8 year old. Being a positive roll m...
TRYING to give up today
TRYING not to look like a failure
I’m TRYING to focus
TRYING too quit again
TRYING hard to keep the faith
TRY my best again and again
TRY my best to quit
TRYING harder than ever
Just keep TRYING hard
Back to TRY again
TRYING hard now to not smoke
TRYING hard to convince myself
TRYING hard to fight the urge
Even if I slip up, I'll TRY again
If you relapse just...
Champix. Nothing else works for me. Will power certainly didn't work for me. In my expereince and opinion champix will work when it works, no timeframe. Just keep taking until you notice yourself smoking less and less and the need for a cig has become weaker. Then test if how long you can go without. When it is forever you are there. Keep taking the course beyond the quit point. Lastly - NEVER be...
FIRST: Although it is a minor milestone for me, I really only want to post to tell you how THANKFUL I am to be part of this community. I have read hours of posts and have even used the search tool on this site. I pretty much get a "dose" of encouragement from this community on a daily basis.

The last two days have been pretty horrible.
I logged on here yesterday and was going to write about my body screaming for nicotine but as I wrote, I wondered...is that REALLY the problem?
It dawned on me that I have never handled any situation in my adult life (good or bad) without cigarettes. Does that mean my capacity to control myself emotionally is still at a 15 year old's stage of dev...
I've had two very tranquil days - no pangs...or frantic peppermint chewing...or clenched fists and gritted teeth...no need to nibble my way through a packet of dry crackers when I've sat in front of the computer...in fact, I was relaxed enough last night to read a novel in bed - I left my Guru, Allen Carr on the shelf for the first time since my quit date.
I had a treat day on Saturday and wen...
