    Winners are grinners

    Hi Quit Family, Just wanted to say it is awesome to see so many new quitters on this site. Just goes to show how people are starting to wake up and take control back over their lives, fantastic. Smokers are now the minority and that is a great thing. Believe you can and you will. It doesn’t matter how many times you try as long as you never give up trying. It doesn’t have to be a drawn out mise...

    Mindset

    Posted in Hints and tips 24 Apr 2021

    Hi All, we talk a lot on this site about mindset. When we decide to quit smoking....do you draw a line under that statement...or do you say I am going to try and quit? If you think I am going to try and quit...you are leaving the door open just a little....in case you fail. If you think this is it, I am not smoking anymore...it is more powerful and no room for failure. We really are how we think....

    Have you ever been on a bus,train or plane? Most people have and you can’t smoke. What happens in your mind. For most people the thought of having a smoke disappears for the duration of the journey. However as soon as they get off the bus, train or plane the desire to light up is back again. Why? Once we know we can’t have a smoke while in these situations we distract our minds with other thought...

    Lonely Habit

    Posted in Hints and tips 25 Oct 2020

    Hi Everyone, I was chatting with a friend the other day and she said something about smoking that I felt was a great point to share. We used to smoke because smoking was a very social thing to do.....however these days smoking is just plain lonely. So if you don’t want to be lonely....you don’t want to isolate yourself from others....you don’t want to feel shame.....stop smoking

    So sorry to everyone that when I post a comment it comes up twice. Very frustrating for me also. It is doing it automatically and I don’t know how to fix it. Once again I am so sorry that you have to put up with it duplicating

    Hi All, today is 859 days since I quit being a slave to smoking. It started with day one....just like everyone else. I urge anyone who wants to quit to start with day one and progress from there. Don’t put it off, don’t make excuses to do it later...do it today. People say there is never a good time to give up....I feel there is a good time to give up and it is NOW. There is nothing to fear and...

    Want it, embrace it

    Hi All, I am 756 days quit today....yay. I have learnt many things through all of those days. We are stronger than we give ourselves credit for. If we really want something we can and do make it happen...quitting is exactly the same. Wanting to quit and making it happen is within us all. As in life...don’t focus on the negatives...focus on the positives. Being a non smoker is full of positives ...

    No need to struggle

    Hi, I have a feeling that a lot of people out there who have just started their quit journey, are feeling like they will struggle forever. Believe me, you won’t. These struggles are temporary and you need to understand that and embrace your quit. Before you know it, smoking will just be something you used to do once upon a time. You will not think about it hourly or daily or weekly. It fades away...
