I have been a heavy 30+ a day smoker for near 17 years. I am now, for the first time, 42 days ciggarette free thanks to vaping. Already i have noticed a difference in my health. My skin, eyes, gums, less phlegm, easier breathing and less snoring. I'm less irratable and less lethargic. Luckily I have the options for flavoured E juice because I think having tobacco flavoured for me personally would...
I started smoking at 14 and after 25 years smoking my lungs were wrecked. I tried cold turkey, gums, sprays, patches, even hypnosis.
Nothing worked for longer than a couple of weeks.
The patched gave me a horrible rash and the gums made me feel like I was going to throw up. I have no idea what was in the sprays but it burnt.
5 years ago I found out about vaping.
In the space of a week I ...
My name is Andrew.
I have 4 children and smoked over a packet a day for 32 years
I tried every way to quit including Champix, patches and sprays.
The only thing that has stopped me smoking for 18 mths now is Vaping. The Royal College of Physicians in the UK 100% endorses vaping and it is now in 2 UK hospitals to assist patients who wish to quick.
The easiest,safest and best thing I have don...
I just wondered how much money we could put on the Money Tree by Dec. 25.
I will bet it will blow our minds. I am sure it was put to better use than blowing smoke.
Any money saved while on this site this year counts! I will publish the total collection before the New Year.
It's been nearly 8weeks since I gave up smoking and I am doing great. My doctor is very pleased with me . And now I just look the other way when I can smell someone is smoking around me. So now I know I have stop completely and the support I get from people and I can quit . Gary
Hello , Im almost at 5 weeks, of not smoking a cigarette and 96 hours of no nicotine gum. I feel ok. Not much energy , not really feeling like doing anything, moody and very pensive but not as anxious today . I've lost 14lbs as the change, worry and not really wanting to "stuff" myself as that is when I have the worst craving. I spoke to a hypnotist yesterday. She said I took u smoking as a copin...

Hi everyone, hope all is well with you all. Just a note to touch base. I’m 127 days smoke free and feel amazing also have no intention of ever going back. I still crave but easily deterred. I’ve had a family holiday and saving for the next already. I spent $200 yesterday on baby clothes for my granddaughter who will be here in 10 weeks around about lol. I could not have done all this if I was sti...
A big thanks to penelopejane, Happiness, softly40 and SteveJ. It is always great to hear from my fellow ex smokers. May your Journeys be filled with love and health and happiness. In case I don't call in during the holidays, I would like to wish everyone the best for the holidays. Stay safe.
I haven't posted since my 3 week mark and now I'm around 790 days since my official quit date.
I used a product that unfortunately is no longer available but I have to say it was just a catalyst to quitting that I was done with after week 3. From then on staying smoke free was about being able to breath clearly in the morning. Kiss my wife without chewing gum first. Not smelling like an asht...
