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 been ciggie free for over a month and a half and I’ve honestly stopped counting the days
Out of sight = out of mind
And this forum has helped a ton by having so much great info
But I still believe the trick is to erase the thought that you’ve ever smoked from your mind
How am I doing this??
By changing up all my old routines I had as a smoker with new ones
And feeling hea...
I tried quitting last year. After 35 days I slipped up. This time I had a plan and the determination is much stronger. Smoking is a living prison. It is always a thought, a consequence, a way of life and I truly hate it. I was so hesitant to do try again, couldn't see myself getting through and sustaining. But let me say this to all who feel the same way, WILL POWER IS STRONGER THAN ANY MEDICAT...
Hi team, thought I'd check back in and read up on everyone's progress! I hit the 4 month mark a few days ago and I'm happy with how it's going. I have been on nicotine gum for a while and finally stopped using that as well. How did everyone spend the Xmas and new year? Take care y'all and feel free to drop comment if you want to chat.
Just want to share with you all, 813 days smoke free life.
Hi all, happy new year and I hope everyone reading this is feeling good about quitting! I was reminded by an email sent by this site to checkin after not doing so for several months.
I was a smoker for 36 years. Heavy smoker. I am now 76 days quit. Life feels clearer, my mind feels unclogged. My eyes feel like they can actually see clearly. And I am pretty sure I smell great!
Hi everyone. Its been 2 years since i lit up a cigarette. The time has gone by so fast, even though my first day of quitting seem to go on for years. Quitting was one of the best decisions of my life, and although it was a bit hard at times, and i did'nt know what to expect, i was determined to quit. I think that determination plays a very big part in quitting. I have also saved a lot of money. T...

Firstly - thank you all for posting your stories! I love this site from far away in the UK! The thing I love that most about this site is being able to search past stories of others who were at my ‘days’ once. e.g. 200 days and then click on their name to see they are 2,3,4,5 years quit and that they don’t even think about cigs anymore. This gives me a lot of hope! I still find it difficult when ...
I "only" smoked about 12 day. So a pack a day smoker could have saved nearly $20K - and that's after tax - you would need to earn maybe $25K to have that to spend.
Considering 10% of Aussies earn minimum wage of just under $40K, and only another 30% earn between that and the median wage of $90K, that's a massive chunk of the take home pay going up in smoke.
I made a rule no smoking in the car. 6 months later 1 morning i had a smoke but was out in the car rest of the day. Dinner time i thought well, all day without and im exhausted so sleep. Next morning i lit 1 up had a puff and yuck put it out thinking later finish, but the yuck taste lingered so i just stopped
