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...
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 everyone, after reading through a few stories today and noticing a few people struggling to stay quit, I thought I would share.
If you have read a lot of posts on here we talk a lot about mindset...it is key. Some folks want to quit and see how it goes...others make the decision to quit forever.....there is a huge difference in this thinking. The first one is already giving you an out if you ...
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...
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 ...
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...
Hi All, we were all scared to quit....when that quit date approaches closer and closer we start to panic. Do you know why?
Because your life is about to change for the better....but you don’t quite believe that yet...do you? If you read the many stories on here and really absorb what they are saying....not one person who has quit has ever said ..... it was the worst thing I ever did. There are m...
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
