    28 days no cigarette!

    Posted in Staying quit 6 Jun 2020
    5 Comments

    Today is my 28th day without any cigarettes. Been smoking for 20 years, it's amazing that I can stop smoking for 28 days....wow... Although I am still using the batches and gum, but I actually don't mind using it because it's much healthier than smoking. Highly recommend anyone who find it hard to quit smoking to start with the patches, it simply helps.

It was such a huge shock and absolutely heartbreaking, we are a very close family so it hurt alot. The added stress of being responsible for funeral arrangements and everything else has ma...

    Hi all, sorry i haven't dropped in for awhile, had 1 or 2 health scares and under Drs. orders i had to shed some kilos. Being the impulsive type, I through myself at it and ended up with some more health issues. I forgot the old mantra K.I.S.S. Anyway Im approaching it differently, and appear to to be having some success without killing myself. The good news is I'm coming up to 16 weeks smoke fr...

    I have been smoking for 20 years. Recently decided to quit because I want to live longer and see my new born daughter grow up. I have stopped smoking for almost seventh days now, being using the nicotine pad and mouth spray. It helps reducing the craving and the temptation of having a cigarette. Since yesterday I am starting to get muscle pain, constipation, etc. I search Google and found that al...

    It’s been 17 days since my last cigarette and I must say I am proud. 2 week mark was very important to me because everyone kept saying that it gets easier after 2 weeks. It really does. Last 3 days, I only had one craving and was very easy to tackle. (Lasted for about 1 min) I am trying to focus on the fact that my durability and stamina is getting soo much better during exercise. Breathing also ...

    Hey guys. I am 31 years old and I stopped smoking 12 days ago. I didn’t use any nicotine replacement and went cold turkey for the first time. I tried countless times to quit before and had never achieved more than 3 days. I tried patches, gum, e cigs, everything there is basically. The only thing that was different this time was that I was concerned for my health. I started smoking 30 cigs a day ...
