Hello everyone 🙂 im glad to say that im now 27 days smokefree, cold turkey 👍
In the beginning it really was horrible..
Night sweats, irritable , and pretty horrible insomnia.. first three days are the worst it gets physically after that its just mind over matter in my experience anyway..
The reasons i feel i had to quit were..
1. The money!! I was spending upto 25-35 dollars daily..
Why do so many put the decision to Quit so later in life?
How is it that one packet of smokes is purchased almost daily?
I truly respect you guys who have given up, found the freedom and no longer want a single puff. But unfortunately, there would be a majority of smokers always having some excuse to continue to smoke.
How about hearing from those smokers that cant quite get there. Succ...

Stay focused and strong......there is no good reason to keep smoking x

This is my first time on here and I’m so blown away by all your amazing success stories. To cut a long story short, I was diagnosed with a breast abscess, spent a week in hospital, two aspirations and septicaemia. I was advised to quit smoking as that increases my chance of it coming back. I’m not well at the moment a I just been discharged and still in somewhat pain. I want to quit...
