Welcome to the iCanQuit community this is your opportunity to share with your fellow community members any tips, stories or advice you may have around quitting smoking or staying quit.

I’m quitting tomorrow. Truly over all the crap that comes with smoking. I’ve attempted a few times in the past but this time it feels different.. I’m not scared of doing it and I feel more determined. I’m always up for tips and tricks to help me stay on track.
