For all newbies. Go through the pain it will not kill you. Not perhaps what you really want to hear but never the less true. Currently 588 days 20 months away from my last cigarette and it only seems like yesterday since I quit. The first few days were bad. The first month was finger nail biting. I was irritable and not good company for what seemed years but in reality was a few months. Yes it d...
Just checking in. Just to say still amazed and grateful. 566 days quit. Thanks
Hi Folks. Just looked at my days away from cigarettes page and its 555. There used to be a cigarette called State Express 555 I believe. ( just saying ).
I was remembering the times I told those little white lies.
To my wife " I have really cut down.
To the doctor. " I rarely smoke "
On the form. Tick / no
To my boss " just popping out to the shop "
To myself " I will quit next ...
It is exactly 18 months since my last cigarette and the cravings are gone. The whole journey has been a roller coaster ride but the rewards keep coming. The first few months were horrendous and it seemed the cravings would never go. But this time I was determined to quit ( cold turkey ). So many upsides to quitting. No downsides now the cravings have gone. Not fooling myself though and fully aw...
Nearly 18 months quit and feeling really grateful. Worth the pain and anxst of the first few months. Thanks to all those who helped me through the worst. And thanks to this forum. Cravings completely gone. New Gibson 335 guitar. Thousands saved. New self esteem. Clothes don't need washing so much. Cough gone. Blood pressure normal. 100% good doctors report after check up. Who wouldn't quit
17 months since I last smoked on September 7 th 2015 and going really ok.
Can't pretend that the first few weeks were easy because they were almost unbearable but just bearable. Having smoked for 53 years it was always going to be difficult but I knew it would not kill me.
I never denied that I really wanted a cigarette but that I needed to quit more.
My wife had recently gone through a tr...
503 days since my last cigarette and still can't believe after 53 years smoking I have finally quit ( just for today as they say ). My youngest son who is 40 has quit recently as he is so impressed.
Great to see so many quitters on here going the long haul. Jenno Lia Cranky Johnny and quite a few more. Great site and great quitters. All have been so helpful.
Whatever issues are ongoing in my daily life it is so so so important to remember the gift of freedom by quitting smoking. Daily visits here to see how others are doing is essential and a great reminder that smoking was bondage in numerous negative ways.
493 days quit today and rarely have any cravings. The cravings that do manifest are really just thoughts with no real power and easy to dismis...
Having spoken over the years to smokers that have started again after long quits there seems to be two triggers. One is a traumatic event and the other is " it was offered so I took it "
For me it seems that I will always have the propensity to nicotine addiction but one day at a time I am not indulging. This seems to work. I also make sure I stay close here on icanquit even though I may not con...
