What can I say? To be honest, after all this time, I still feel the need to work at it. I'm not sure why. Is this normal? I find I am doing what I encourage others to do,.. one hour at a time, one day at a time, go to bed early,... Lot's of celery!
I do feel physical benefits and am still focused on my future as a non-smoker. I suppose it takes time? I know I can do it as others have done it s...
TRYING to give up today
TRYING not to look like a failure
I’m TRYING to focus
TRYING too quit again
TRYING hard to keep the faith
TRY my best again and again
TRY my best to quit
TRYING harder than ever
Just keep TRYING hard
Back to TRY again
TRYING hard now to not smoke
TRYING hard to convince myself
TRYING hard to fight the urge
Even if I slip up, I'll TRY again

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....
Hello QuitFam, I Just have to pass along a story that might make you smile.
The other day I had a routine medical procedure. I could not eat the entire day before. (I had cravings for food that day, NOT cigarettes). Back to my story...
I was in the surgery room and they were getting ready to "put me under" and asked when I had my last cigarette. I said that I recently quit. Everyone clappe...
Hello my non-smoking and soon to be non-smoking friends. Yippee!! After decades of smoking, I have been a non-smoker for 3 weeks without a single puff! If I can do it anyone can do it!
The number of attempts I have had are sadly in the double digits. I have NEVER made it 3 entire weeks. I now believe it's never too late and you are never too old!!! I am beginning to see subtle benefits and I ...
FIRST: Although it is a minor milestone for me, I really only want to post to tell you how THANKFUL I am to be part of this community. I have read hours of posts and have even used the search tool on this site. I pretty much get a "dose" of encouragement from this community on a daily basis.
==> For those members in this group that are ex-smokers for a period of time: I'm n...
Yep, I'm still focusing on my journey! I am intimately familiar with "Day 3" as I have seen many "Day 3's", however this "Day 3" I have something I had not had before,... That is the sincere WANT to quit. I think my struggle is not as intense as previous quits.
I'm doing as I expected: irritable, jittery and anxious. Oh, need to mention, somewhat miserable... I'm afraid there's no "easy button...
For the last 3 weeks, I have made a feeble attempt to quit smoking. At first I did well, then a puff here and there, then a day without a puff... I still continued to count those days still as quit days, however, I'm not fooling anyone. A puff here and there means I am still "feeding the monster" so to say.
I am here in the US and it is Saturday evening. My quit day will be Monday. E...
