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.
Think of the money I'll save for an overseas holiday

The fact that iCanQuit wanted me to water down my post, although it contained no offensive language, had information for which I ...
One of the most pervasive aspects of smoking is the smell., and how it gets in everything in your home.
As a smoker you tend to scoff at the "Passive smoking" effect, but on giving up you quickly realise when walking past someone smoking how it stinks. It takes many many washes of all the clothes in your possession and a lot of Glen 20 at home on bedding, curtains and the like and things l...
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...
