Just popping in to wish everyone a merry Christmas and a smoke fee new year.
While I’m still smoke free for 109 days I’ve just gotten over pneumonia.
I went to the doctor and got some antibiotics and a puffer.
It was scary I was very much short of breathe.
But feel 100 percent now and not using the puffer as much
Smoking is not worth it.
I love to eat. I have been eating and making up for not really having many cravings while I was smoking. It is glorious, and I even savor the meals. I think I taste the food and drinks better. Plus, chocolate drinks just feel good to the bone.
I'm also getting back into doing some of the things that I used to be into before I really started to become a smoker.
And I think as a thing I am ...
I was hoping to be able to get some feedback on how some of you have dealt with quitting. I went cold turkey and I haven’t had a cigarette in 11 days. I just wanted to see what side effects have been experienced by others. Surprisingly my cravings have not been that bad but I feel my anxiety has been through the roof. I don’t feel motivated to go out and socialise and I get nauseous and dizzy fro...
45 days. positive affirmation "I dont smoke". its addiction but its mind over matter too. give yourself permission to change youre mind. your mind is stronger than the addiction.
Do I miss smoking? There are certainly times when I wish I could smoke without the side effects that I am well aware of. The cravings do appar from time to time but I am in control of my cravings. I also know not to be complacent.
The one side effect of quitting that I was not thrilled about was my weight gain. That too has become a non issue as I have started losing the lbs. At 10lbs now and...
Day 18 today. No NRT gum today and feeling fine. I've been chewing regular gum on and off since breakfast and haven't felt any need for the NRT gum. Really trying to rid my body of all nicotine.
Feeling more positive and energized today.
Also started reading Allen Carr's book.
Have a great day people!
Just popping in to say hi and to celebrate 200+ day's. I'm still going strong in my own mind, but the battle is real. I've started to exercise, but let's say smoking has pushed my health back tremendously . I have only myself to blame for abusing my body for 30 years with smoking, so i have come to reality that regaining what I have destroyed, will need time to recover. But just like quitting it...
11 Months tomorrow and I will at least give myself a chance to acknowledge something I don't like doing this because I don't wanna get to confident I know the road ahead is long I just ask God to continue to guide my steps any word of encouragement won't hurt
I have a problem of severe anxiety about my heart and feel any day can have a heart attack/ cardiac arrest. I smoked 3-7 cigarettes a day.
Its been 5 days since I have quit now and whenever I feel like smoking, I check my heart rate and if it is above 90 I feel concerned and my mind tells in if I smoke, it will go above 100 leading to severe risk to my heart
If is less that 90 then...
Over 6.5 years ago I quit inhaling combustible tobacco. I’d tried everything prior. Cold turkey, Patches, Gum, Medication, Hypnotherapy... you name it I’d done it. A friend introduced me to vaping and the minute I tried it, I knew this would work for me. I purchased a unit and liquid and from the moment it arrived I have not touched a cigarette since. Over the next year I weened myself down from ...
