Want to fill you all in. I am now 9 weeks some free and I am very proud of myself I have got this far cold turkey.
I am not missing them so much anymore I have changed my train of thought.
Definetly much easier to handle than the first week orr 2.
Eating more healthy
And started doing some excercise
30 minute walk after work seems to work for me really well. Fills that void ...
Just short of 1000 days smoke free and a saving of $19,000! It is well and truly all behind me now. I no longer miss it at all. And what surprises me is that whenever we are out I see very few people smoking. I have just turned 60 and truly believe if I still smoked I would have been on oxygen. My breathing is so much more manageable. I am still using ventolin, when I need it, and have prev...

I was like you - struggling with smoking. Even though I knew it was a harmful habit that was killing me little by little, I just couldn't quit.
Now, I didn't have any sort of spiritual revelation. I read the book Atomic Habits by James Clear and it helped me to understand how habits work, and so I started.

This week I passed the 4 year mark and I'm so incredibly grateful everyday for the freedom I now enjoy from cigarettes, that once ruled nearly every aspect of my life.
This forum and Champix were my aids to succeed after many many failed attempts.
It was my calender anniversary of quitting reminder on my phone that popped up and prompted me to celebrate.... that's how nothing smoking...
1200 days and counting. Last week I had a cig in a dream. Woke up, no harm done - never forget to practice NOPE (Not one puff ever). So many benefits to being a non smoker but if you are on this site you know what I mean.
Good luck in your quest and cheers.
