It’s been 7+ months so far for me. Quitting smoking was one of the biggest life changing decision for me. I didn’t realise how much money, energy and time I was spending just to get that hit of nicotine. In last 7 months even with Covid 19 i was able to pay off 80% of my debt, saved enough to see house mortgage on horizon, switched my job and home (now living independently without any housemate s...
Hi all well I am very angry and very disappointed with myself.
I had a smoke. I had just 1 smoke since I stopped 3 months ago.
And to be honest I felt sick to the gut with anger that I give in.
The thing is it triggers when I am at a friend's house
Because that's where I used to go and have a drink and a smoke with her. And today well it got me.
And now one hour after doing so I thought...
It is day 36 and I feel like having a smoke, a cigarette. It is really full on! But, I'm not going to. I have come too far to go back, because all that would happen is I would take a few drags, feel a bit dizzy and think how wonderful that is and then realise what have I done??!! So I am going to save myself that old familiar anguish and say "No" to my self. Otherwise I'll be hooked right ba...
Champix fourth week and although I've cut down a lot I've still been smoking a bit. However today is the first time I've actually felt the same when I smoke as when I've not had one. This is encouraging to me. I'm surprised to learn that for some people champix can take up to four weeks and I guess I'm just one of those people! So new quit date is Saturday, please wish me luck 👍
Hello all, Today I start my first dose of Champix, I am anxious that I wont stop smoking with these but I have so much drive to push through I really hate being "the Smoker".
Any tips for a first timer on Champix
(I know about the possible side effects and will be monitored)
Day one again for me. I hope this time will be THE time. I find after a few days I stop having cravings but as soon as I have any alcohol I cannot control them and lose all willpower. I have a great marriage (non smoking husband) and wonderful kids and that HAS to be enough to stop this dangerous habit. Fingers crossed...
Hi guys, I can announce 4 months of smoke free life.. I'm very happy for that.. time flies quickly.. 4 months mark was something very very far away and now it's nothing else just reality.. :)
What has changed since last post app. 20 days ago? Lots of.. I have started to go to work after 1 year paternity leave.. It was easier as I had thought.. I can go with my buddy collegues to smoking area a...
other than being harassed on this website, i am taking amazing dubs.
the man that makes me feel young is out of the door and back with the man who has a plethora of mental issues. but we can work on that another time.
i am feeling, free. like an unwashed hippie in the 70s. i am zen
-chwoe, finally at peace
Hi All, today is 859 days since I quit being a slave to smoking. It started with day one....just like everyone else.
I urge anyone who wants to quit to start with day one and progress from there. Don’t put it off, don’t make excuses to do it later...do it today. People say there is never a good time to give up....I feel there is a good time to give up and it is NOW.
There is nothing to fear and...
I recently quit smoking and I mean like yesterday afternoon. Today for some reason I can’t get moving. I am so tired. I don’t know if I’m getting sick or if it is from
Not smoking. I can’t even tell you how many years off and in I smoked. More on than off. But it’s been a while and I do remember the irritability and depression but never being this tired. Anyone’s opinions. This would be greatly...
