This is my first time on here and I’m so blown away by all your amazing success stories. To cut a long story short, I was diagnosed with a breast abscess, spent a week in hospital, two aspirations and septicaemia. I was advised to quit smoking as that increases my chance of it coming back. I’m not well at the moment a I just been discharged and still in somewhat pain. I want to quit...

Hi all, just a small note to stay I'm on track. Early days but feeling very positive day 1 of week 2, wow the first week didn't drag as much as I thought it would. I have set myself targets and goals for the year, nothing unrealistic just focusing on where I've been before non smoking as appossed to smoking and more visits at the gym as appossed to less visits and which categories make me feel my...
This is a milestone for me. I rang in my birthday yesterday as a non smoker and I was proud of me! I don’t really have cravings...just thoughts now...if I romanticize the one cigarette or allow myself to fixate on smoking, it will make me crazy. I just stick to deep breaths and keep moving for now. I appreciate everyones’ Stories and support. I am cautiously optimistic that it is my time to ...

I have felt the call of the monster tonight. Friday night. Having a couple of beers/wines with my husband.
I still didn't want to have a smoke, but I wanted to be a smoker. Doesn't make sense. But just that total habit of drinking a wine on the patio having a smoke. Pang.
Lucky I threw all the smokes out. Lucky I don't live in walking distance of a shop. Lucky I have my wonderful husband I ca...
While i was out today, a young lady backed her car into mine. When i was a smoker, i would have reached for my smokes and puffed away frantically, believing that it was helping a stressful situation. Today, the thought of a smoke didnt even cross my mind. You dont need to smoke when things go wrong. Another reason to keep smoking, down the drain.
