I have been really struggling to quit these past couple of months with many attempts at it. However this time I am determined to stay smoke free and off the damn ciggies!!!!!
I am really struggling to staying quit. I keep trying after a relapse of not smoking for 10 weeks, but I just can't seem to shake it. I'm not giving up on giving up though. Any words of advise or encouragement for a determined struggler.
My last attempt at quitting I went for 10 weeks without a smoke and for no apparent reason just started smoking again, that was 2 weeks ago. I am sick and tired of smoking and spending money on cigarettes, I am into my first day of quitting and am determined now to stay smoke free!!!!!
I actually quit smoking for 10 weeks, then the cravings hit really bad and I bought a packet. Despite this however, I saw that I had saved $1500 during this quit attempt and have decided to quit again, my motto is "Never give up on giving up", I have decided that it was just a slip up and I can do this again and learn from my journey, "To infinity and Beyond"!!!!

Today is my 18th day being smoke free. I am using NRT to help me, although I have found myself cutting back a lot on the use of it. I am really enjoying the extra money I have to spend on myself and others as well, and I find it amazing that my senses like smell and taste are heaps better.

The NRT really helps me defeat cravings, also what I find extremely helpful is to change my thought process', and distract myself and do other things when feeling like or thinking about smoking.
I slipped up over the weekend, but I am extremely determined to stay smoke free, my motto is never give up on giving up, and I'm now into day 2 of quitting, remembering my reasons for quitting and my motivation. My bank balance is also heaps better, and I find using the NRT really helps as well.
Today is my first day of being smoke free. I am going well, been to see my doctor and got and filled a script for patches. I have been tempted to smoke, but when I feel the urge to I use NRT and deal with it in my thoughts, and re assess my goals and reasons for quitting. I know I can do this!!!!
I have tried to quit on numerous occasions. This time will be different as I focus on my reasons for quitting and learn from past experiences. My motto this time is never give up on giving up!!!!
