    Hi Everyone, Im really looking forward to Christmas break :) i have 3 more work days ahead of me until i can enjoy a well deserved break. Im looking forward to having more energy than i would if i was still smoking :) Work was a hard one for me in terms of not smoking. it was my reason to get away from the computer and break up the day. Now i have green tea at my desk, i prob drink about 3 - 4 ...

    I always start out so well, really determined, positive about being healthy, big statements like "THIS is the time i finally stay quit." i think this has happened 6 times in the past year and a bit now :( This time, im not making big gestures, im not making it public knowledge that im quitting smoking, im just not going to smoke no more. i have the Nicobate lozengers there to help if im really c...

    Hi Everyone, Just thought i would stop by and give a little update. Currently on my 8th day smoke free :) im feeling really good, head is clearer, i feel like there is more colour in my face, the wallet is a little happier and can breather a little easier. The only negative thing i can say is that for this whole week i have been waking up at like 5.30am, completed awake and not tired. Maybe an ...

    Day III

    Its been 2 days, 10 Hours and 11 Minutes since my last smoke. I have got an app called "Quit Now" on my phone that helps me alot cause i can see the types of achievements i have done. Shows me the days, hours, minutes, seconds since i had my last smoke. How many smokes i normally would have had in that time. The time i have saved myself by not feeding my addiction. The money saved and the health...

    Day II

    Its my second day, today is a little easier than yesterday. i feel pretty tired around the eyes and feel like im missing out on leaving the office for a smoke, but i dont miss the smoking itself. Taking it one day at a time, drinking plenty of water and keeping myself busy. i feel like im a lot warmer than i should, but i also might be getting sick :-/ Hope everyone is still powering along as s...

    1st Day Quitting

    Posted in Quit experiences 10 Jul 2013
    3 Comments

    So... its been 13.5hours since my last smoke. Feeling really positive about this attempt. i have to admit i usually do start off good, but this time i will keep up the momentum. Im 100% completely over: - Smelling of smokes- Not having a bright white smile, like i use to- Being unfit and short of breath - Broke, for feeding my addiction- Lazy and un-energetic- The taste of smokes- Coughing Im ...

    Day 2

    Going ok... i have noticed im eating more which stresses me out and kinda makes me crave for a cig, but i am not going to. I have the Allen Carr book on my smartphone so i can always refer to it when i think im craving and it helps. I kinda wish i was on Zyban, as i know it really does help "even" me out. having a lot of lost feelings like "I normally would have a smoke and do this...." and now...

    The title of my "Hint or Tip Title" is the time/date that i stopped smoking. I just finished reading Allen Carr's Easy Way To Stop Smoking and have made the concious decision that i am now a non-smoker. I dont enjoy smoking, and havent for a long time. i have had success in other quit attempts, but have taken it back up over stupid reasons. I guess i use to label myself as an "Emotional Smoker"....

    Okay, so i have avoided signing on here cause my very confident first day of not smoking ended up in flames. I, like alot of smokers, have more than a few trys at staying quit. Im currently reading "Allen Carr's Easy Way To Stop Smoking" and its offering me a way to quit smoking that is understandable, interesting (as i love how the brain works) and apparently "Easy" as stipulated in the t...
