These books give advice on self care in that have something for yourself, a gift put yourself first for once. Many of can’t justify or motivate if it’s not for someone else or a cause outside of ourselves. Giving up smoking can be just that your own private space even nirvana these...
Hi guys.. hope you doing well.. I'm pleased to share with you that I'm 2 (by words: TWO) years smoke free.. I did it!
I can confirm I'm non smoker and be next to smoking guys doing nothing to me except feeling relief that I do not have to smoke! I'm very happy that I was able to quit smoking, I still find it as something unbelievable..
I do not come here often anymore, but I saw many new comers...
I seen people in hospital with breathing problems and I don’t want to be worse than them I have early COPD and I can prolong the illness I gave up cold turkey in beginning of April and I have not wanted to smoke
I find it useful not to dwell or ruminate in thoughts of smoking- in effect remove it from my mind.
Eat sleep watch tv cook do anything to push the thoughts out of your mind.
I never told anyone either of my cessation attempt to avoid discussion and focus on the topic.
I also took 4 days off work in order to go cold Turkey with the mindset it was to give up smoking only and get through t...
I decided to go cold Turkey. 22 years 20-30 a day smoker. Two weeks in to quit no coughing at all no runny nose. However extreme bouts of fatigue pretty much daily constant brain fog and distraction. Ravenous appetite and occasional optimism for bouts of energy before fatigue crash.

I appreciate those of you who can post/write your journey when you were going through your quits. I am not a writer and found it difficult to express myself during the beginning stage of my journey. I was so mentally...
52yo male smoked for 35 years and I tried to stop plenty of times, lasted a few weeks and once even months but today 12 months on for the first time I can say I am an ex smoker. Also first time I have posted here.
It is hard, one of the hardest things I have done but what worked for me is remembering the reason why I wanted to stop and making that more important than a quick fix. I'm got to ...
Oops! I nearly forgot! On May 30th I reached my 7 years quit date. Hope Dobbin and other quitters around that time see this and know that with their friendship and support I am still "stench free". Wallet is getting very heavy! Can only hope others achieve success and go the distance.
Day ONE here we go again. Attempt No 5 and hopefully the last. Bloody smokes are killing me and I can't breathe wearing the mask I have to in my job. Wanted to buy a pack when I finished the one I said was my last. Resisted today. I WILL resist tomorrow. I need my headspace to get stronger
I have found that NRT works for me, approximately 6 days in to a forever quit.
