just 3 hours into quitting and thought i would sign up for support and already this website is already doing my head in but I know its my anxiety at work and not the website! any way as ive mentioned this is my 4th attempt. I have been diagnosed with COPD and Heart Failure 18 months ago but have continued to smoke. Woke up this morning made a cuppa and reached for the ciggies and realised i was o...
4th attempt, longest was for 35 days by reading others stories, when i started to stop reading 2-3 days afterwards i would bust, so stay strong & committed and believe in yourself. Its all about you
I have CFS and I'm about to get weight loss surgery. Quitting has been put off for so long now and today it's time to do it. I read about harms of smoking and surgery to scare myself into doing this. I think it has worked. today is the day. New year, new decade, new me

Hello everyone 🙂 im glad to say that im now 27 days smokefree, cold turkey 👍
In the beginning it really was horrible..
Night sweats, irritable , and pretty horrible insomnia.. first three days are the worst it gets physically after that its just mind over matter in my experience anyway..
The reasons i feel i had to quit were..
1. The money!! I was spending upto 25-35 dollars daily..

Hard, yes; work it YES!
