    Price rise

    Posted in Reasons to quit 21 Jan 2020
    12 Comments

    Hi All, we have just had another price rise in Australia...12.5%....wow. We are paying the highest of any country in the world. Makes you wonder how anyone in Aus can afford to smoke, but people always seem to find the money to do so. Really sad that people will pay so much to destroy their health and self esteem. Stay focused and strong......there is no good reason to keep smoking x

    Hi All, I am at 544 days quit now after 48 years of being a slave to it. I wanted to share an experience that I had a few days ago.....I was out with friends....none of them smoke...all of a sudden I felt the greatest urge to have a smoke that I have experienced so far. It came out of no where....I thought I was over ever craving again. That craving stayed with me for the rest of the day. Ma...

    Hi All, everyone who is on this quit journey needs to take pride in what they are achieving every single day. Only non smokers think this is an easy thing to do, why don’t you just stop...it is easy. Someone who constantly battles with their weight hears...just stop snacking all the time and exercise..its easy. Well it isn’t easy when smoking or food is your addiction. We are taking back control ...

    Thank you all for your kind comments. I would love to continue supporting others on this site, but by not allowing me and others to comment on stories, I am unable to participate which I find very disappointing. But I guess the powers that be think they have improved the site regardless of what we think. Thanks again....stay strong and focused xx

    Post button not working

    Hi Everyone, I can’t post from my iPad anymore so I guess you won’t be hearing from me again. I do not have a mobile phone so that is not an option. Since they changed the format I find it more difficult to navigate. I think they call it progress or improvement...lol I wish you all a happy and successful journey....take care xx

    I have had problems trying to comment on stories so I have resorted to doing it this way. So sorry that you are hurting so much Leeann. This is a bump in the road...it does not define your whole journey this far. Keep going girl, you are my quit buddy, and you have a milestone to celebrate next month and I will not leave you behind. xx
