    I have quit smoking from 30 plus cigarettes a day for 40 years..and am now at the 10 month mark of my journey. I am one of those people who was able to quit so long as I knew I could smoke if I needed to...so I kept tobacco handy wherever I was..in my home..in my car etc..but I havent touched it since my quit date..matter of fact I think its still in the little hiding spots I put it in (had to hi...

    Slip ups

    Hi everyone, I haven't been on this site for a while, which is probably why I have had a slip up recently. My son has been suspended from school after a long period of good behaviour. This put me over the edge. In two weeks I have had 6 cigarettes, some of them only a few puffs. But three days ago I bought a packet, still couldn't smoke any until the end. Today, I found myself trying to esca...

    Still going strong!

    From a pack a day smoker for five years, I am on day 43 of being quit. I still can't believe that I was able to find it within myself to quit. I feel so much better! 43 days ago wasn't my last cigarette, I have slipped up a couple of times when I'd be out with people that smoke and they offer me a smoke.

    21 days .... I have slipped up once, a week ago, it tasted so awful (being on the champix) that I had to go brush my teeth... champix are great for me some days I battle naseau but I don't care about that it's worth it! The slip up annoyed me but I have to just learn from it, it tasted awful and I got no hit was pointless! The cravings are still there but by no means like previous attempts when...

I m really disappointed with myself because I am so weak but every time when it is to hard to push forward I turn to this site and find motivation and support. I hope I ll keep on track finding comfort in your stories of success and supporting others who are strong enough to make that...
