Hiya all Newbie here from the UK.

I never thought I would become a smoker, but I did. I started 9 years ago and I've tried to quit so many times. I just hope I can stick to it this time. This time I have more reasons, this time I'm doing it for me, not because someone told me to.
I'm quitting because I want to start a family soon, and I don't want to go into parenthood still smoking.
I'm quitting because I'm so sick of waki...
I was the bright spark that decided to quit on New Year’s Eve at 11:45pm.. right before the fireworks kicked off.
My timing was certainly cliche. I’ve tried quitting several times over the last 5 years.
Something clicking this year though. Smoking has ruined my life for the past 5 years. It’s the toxic relationship I’ve been & now it’s time to flick it.
It’s caused me to become alien...
You’ve probably heard the same reason over and over again.
Mine is clichè and overplayed but has meaning I guess , I’m 20 years old and started smoking due to stress due to my grandmother who was like a mum to me who passed due to lung cancer due to smoking and I had to look after her when she refused chemo.
I don’t want to end up like my nan , looking like a skeleton, living my last days in a...

After that I brought a pack of cigarettes and hid it in my handbag and would smoke one cigarette per day at work. I would smoke only on work days. Slowly I started getting cigarettes home. I used to smoke at home without my husband knowing. I was caught a number of times, me and my husband used to fight...

To rid myself of this demon called nicotine addiction, and build my self-esteem via more conscious and positive lifestyle decisions.
Hi guys !! So I’m VERY new and just signed up.. I’ve been smoking for a few years now.. and want to quit! I know I must sound silly but I’m so afraid to quit and gain weight (stupidity) I know! Any hints or tips to beat the fear and go for it. 😊
Just started my quit journey. Just got sick of lying to my loved ones about my smoking. Never used to smoke at home, but as soon as I left home and went to work. I would pull over to the side of the highway and and have a smoke with my coffee. I was always able to blame the nature of my job and the company i keep at work on why i would smell when i got home. This was just a lie to my wife to keep...
