Welcome to the iCanQuit community this is your opportunity to share with your fellow community members any tips, stories or advice you may have around quitting smoking or staying quit.
I've tried several ways of quitting. This time I have consulted my GP and I am going down the prescription method.
For me this is a reality check. My mother has recently been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. So I'm not only doing it this time for me but as a promise to her.
Any positive feedback regarding Champix would be greatly appreciated. Please hold on to your negative ones at this ...
$9,999 not spent on cigarettes. Lol. Isnt it fabulous to be able to say that. We all wasted so much money. Add that to your list of positive reasons to quit. Stay strong everyone. Its so worth it
Process the mind and relax
Throw away every thing that will remind you that you used to smoke. Ashtray lighters..
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..
I find if I chew gum it helps me to stay focused on quitting, BUT, then it makes me hungry so I spend more money then necessary on food.
How do I get started? first day of not smoking and it scared to start, I know I want to give up. I’m sick of hiding to have a smoke I’m scared of my partner smelling it on me, I’m scared that this may ruin my relationship as I’m not being affectionate because I’m worried that he will smell cigarette on me well on my breath
Hi All, we have just had another price rise in Australia...12.5%....wow.
We are paying the highest of any country in the world. Makes you wonder how anyone in Aus can afford to smoke, but people always seem to find the money to do so. Really sad that people will pay so much to destroy their health and self esteem.
Stay focused and strong......there is no good reason to keep smoking x
I was smoking two packs a day. Sometimes a pack in an hour. It was just time to quit.
