Not one for many words,
However after many times trying to convince myself to quit, the straw the broke the camels back was seeing my not yet 2 year old pick up my ciggies and putting in mouth, and then when I saw her she said daddy, with a lighter in her hand. The cigarettes and lighter where in the bedroom, away from where she was meant to be.
That was the moment that I needed to understand h...
555 days smoke free. I still pinch myself today that I actually did it. I have saved $10,000!!!! We have just retired so glad I gave up before retiring. It would have been so difficult and unaffordable for us. My husband gave up about a week after me. So that made it a bit easier. You know when the time is right. It was for me. I smoked for around 40 years! 20 or so a day. I was having...

I want to start off by saying if it wasn't for the encouragement of the wonderful people on here I would have cracked in the first week.

When I'm at my weakest I take out my phone and look at ...
Its time to stop. I have grandchildren and i want to see Australia. I HAVE to do this.
Well, this is like my 7th try I think. I just look back sometimes when I was not smoking and I wonder how on earth did I agree to this bad habit. If I stayed so many years without smoking in my life, why can't I be like that again?! Anyway, will see how this time goes :)
...is what I’ll call the craving. Had a wine last night, at home by myself, and smoked 3 cigarettes...aaargh! Didn’t even enjoy the second 2. Throwing them away and starting again today. No coffee, no wine, just NRT lozenges. Snacking & drinking water is helpful, and like one of the other quitters said, it’s surprising how much one can eat if it’s healthy food, like raw veggies. Off to the gym.
I have finally made a commitment to stop. I smoke 40 a day and how I breathe now scares me.
Making the decision to give up is the only decision that needs to be made. You have to want it but once you do the rewards are amazing.
I tried many times and now can say it was the best thing I have ever done. I smoked for over 30 years and probably 30 a day and am now angry with myself for wasting 30 years and so much money and now i know, IT WAS SO EASY!
Once you make the decision all ...
