    Hi, I'm back for the fourth time.  I went to quit a few months ago but failed once again. I wasn't coming back here until I had quit and today it has been twelve days.  I had a big fight with hubby as usual over him not wanting me to smoke also for medical reasons.  I told him to let me have one last pack and give me three a day which he did. These three I would smoke a half of eac...

    Hi everyone, thank you all so much for your support, normally I would have had more smokes after my slip up but it's thanks to everyone's kind words that I am still off. Sometimes l feel I may have been more of a habit than addicted smoker, I smoked around 20 a day and having food eg in the car or on work breaks I seem to be ok, I don't get a lot of cravings but when I do I distract myself. Does...

    Hi, today would have been day 8 except for my slip up, so will continue on. To anyone who feels like a smoke it's not worth it, I. Am so angry with myself for having that one which I didn't enjoy plus I felt like I've let everyone down who's supported me on here. I will just have to put it behind me and move on. So I hope you all still love me lol. Xx

    Day 7

    I have a confession to make, today I had a smoke at a party, i enjoyed the first 2 puffs, got head spins and smoked the rest thinking I dont really like this, why did I have it. It was a slip up but in a way Im glad because I now know I cant enjoy them anymore if that makes sense. Now Im more determined to stay off. I found the origin of cold turkey, it's American from the 1920's, meanin...

    Hi, can't believe I made it this far, last time on this site I smoked on day 6 then kept smoking. I'm sure I will make it this time. Cravings were less today. I'm cleaning out car and re washing some clothes to get the smoke smell out yuk. I know some people say go team champix, just want to say go team cold turkeys lol. Does anyone know where that expression originated?

    Hi everyone, thank you all for your support, it makes it so much easier to know I have so much help. Today woke up and thought time to get up for coffee and smoke, then felt disappointed that I couldn't have one, went out and had weetbix on my porch. Today I ate healthy food and am starting to actually enjoy water, your taste buds adjust after awhile. To all those worrying about weight gai...
