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.

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 just logged on to see a very special number. 777 wonderful days free of nicotine ruling my life! Where 777 is supposed to bring luck and fortune, I feel I have found it a long time ago. Quitting smoking was one of the best things I have ever done. It also led me to losing weight and ahead of my goal on that as well!
The confidence I now have that I can do anything I put my mind to, after a...
Hello friends am happy to be here again, and am still on track struggling. Am on 7 months smoke free but still short of breath, feeling heat all the time at my left chest and body’s aches, feeling low energy and moodiness.heart palpitations all the time, I had done a lot of text al normal. Hope I will get better soon.
So far so good. I have stopped hanging around friends that smoke. Smoking was taking a toll on my breathing. I’m so glad I stopped I don’t have cravings much but when I do they are hard. I feel good so far been coughing and clearing my throat like crazy. Been to the doctors several times cause I’m scary lol. Doctor told me I’m healthy as an ox. I made a promise to my oldest son that I stopped two...
Hope you all are doing well in your smoke free journey.
Just received some major family sibling drama news and I feel like smoking right now.
I bought a packet and a lighter. They are in my bag as I type this. I feel so low. I have been dealing with with issues, work stress, and now sibling drama.
I don't know why I'm typing all this. I know better but I feel so hopeless. I must ...
