While Mothers Day is a tribute to Mothers, for their caring and wisdom and love, where did we lose the love for life and the lov e and caring for ourselves? What better gift then to honour their hopes and belief in us, than to quit smoking and inspire their hopes and dreams? We are capable of almost anything when we have the desire to do so.
So whether you have a Mom or are a Mom, make ...
I am disappointed in the lack of response that I have seen in my absence and request that you not only notify those outside of Australia that they can return, but also the members who have had nothing to new read and get support. Together we can make iCanQuit a place to travel this journey together.
I missed you all my friends. Finally after a time I did the unthinkable. Yep, I joined another forum. I think their noses were out of joint when I said this site was superior.
Now I was not unfaithful as I waited days before trying another forum, but as some of you know, I advise visiting a quit forum after quitting smoking, to keep on the right path and to help others.

Never in a million years would I have thought that I could quit smoking.
Today is my 3 year milestone. And over 3 years for a friend with substance abuse.
We tell others to stop , that they are harming themselves . We judge addicts, yet we ourselves are. So if I expect them to stop, then I must also and not be a hypocrite.
When we WANT to change, when we are shown how to and BELIEVE th...
Its the beginning of a new chapter.
I see it's been very quiet today. Not surprising since we have had a fair number of new starters join us. We know,, and respect that it takes time to get your bearings and to readjust to a new way of living.
Last Wednesday, I visited my sister and brought home two vulnerable kittens. They did not ask for change. Momma abandoned them and we guess them to ...
It was Easy. The Mindset makes it possible.
I never thought I could quit, stumbled into in actually. Once believing that I could quit like millions of others, I did.
I think forums like this are invaluable, yet many don't need them. I needed to believe and so i did.
I found others who also quit with a mindset that they swear helped.

Just seeing that lone cigarette in the package sent fear down our spine.
No milk, no coffee in the morning? Well it can wait unless it was for the baby. The kids can eat toast.
But smokes? Where's the car keys?
Nicotine rules. We would not let anyone else tell us , no demand us to do it's bidding. So why do we let it?
Most of us , perhaps all of us, have tried to quit smoking at some poin...
QUITTING SMOKING IS SIMPLE AND STRAIGHT FORWARD compared to dieting. Both take determination and positive thinking but dieting is always ongoing whereas quitting smoking is simply just done.
I caution dieters to not go below the 1200 calories as that is our basic metabolic rate for most of us. I prided myself for putting nutrition and exercise first but was appalled at how recklessly some at...
FEAR. Fear immobilizes us. Fear prevents us from going further. A great post PuffNoMore and fear was a great reason why people don't quit smoking. If we could remove that fear and get people to BELIVE that there is nothing to fear, many more would quit.
We value N.O.P.E. (Not One Puff Ever), so perhaps we need an acronym for FEAR.
Please submit your answer that might help someone conquer...
Everyone's quit is different. Some want to avoid temptations and triggers while others want to see and feel that they are making the CHOICE. That is empowerment as I see it. When we want something else more than the temptation. When we simply make up our minds to do something because we WANT to. It really is much easier.
I had always felt the first step to quitting smoking was to find the...
