I'm just going to take it one day at a time I'm only on my first day
After years of believing I am only a social smoker I have had numerous periods of non smoking in my life but would relapse if certain events took place. After a particularly stressful period 2 months ago I started again. Reflecting back I now thank that I was kidding myself that I was only a social smoker. I regularly smoked up to 15 cigarettes per week for a long time. Not a lot by some standard...
Good morning all. So I have made it to day 4 cold turkey 😊 I know I am only early stages into my quit but I feel this is going to be my final one. It has not been an easy few days but I can already start to feel the health benifets from quitting.
I have found exercising each day and avoiding sugary foods has helped lift my mood. Looking forward to reaching the 1 week milestone.
I work with Artificial intelligence. I even work and play against an AI computer. Applying a plan to continually reinvent the contours of my brain I tried a theory with cucumber which I hated even as a kid. Now I love it like caviar. I inverted the same process for smoking, which I did casually, hanging out, now I hate the sight and smell of them, truly I find them repulsive. This AI computer can...
Day 3. My mood dropped dangerously low late yesterday. I know from experience that it might happen and I distracted. It helped the craving, but my mood is low and I’m scared of the consequences. That stresses me and gives me more cravings.
I feel like I’ll start smoking again anyway and what’s the point? I can’t visualise myself being a non smoker.
I have to quit for my health as i have asthma and it is getting worse, i have also lost my job and can't afford it anymore, have to do it as covid has scarred me as well
Winter was the season for me to finally quit. It's absolutely amazingly beautiful to welcome in the spring a nonsmoker and give thanks to the existing winter for holding the space for me to become one❤️🙏🌅 Not one puff ever 🙌
I've been here before over a year ago.
Quit and started and quit and started again.
I had enough arguments with myself about this and give myself a break.
I've had some time to have a plan set for this next quit.
I no what I need to do and to get through triggers.
I'm about to smoke my last one and jump on the wagon again.
Well done to all you non smokers and people who are j...
I am nearing my final smoke - tonight.
I’m anxious. I’ve stopped smoking more times than I can remember and I even lasted 10 years once. I started again when my mental health deteriorated and smoked on and off for 5 years now. I’m anxious because I know my mood can drop quickly and drastically and I’d like to know if some of you have tips on how to stop smoking while managing ongoing men...
Hello QuitFam... Me? I have not been this far, YIPPEE!! I am just reporting that after 4 weeks, I am beginning to see benefits of not smoking:
==> I HAVE MORE TIME: I went outside to my "smoking spot", stood (or sat) there for an average of 5 minutes per cigarette, add another minute for the "travel time" to and from my smoking spot"; that's 6 minutes. I was a one pack (20 ciggs) a day smoker....
