    Celebrate good times come on....

    Wow cannot believe how far I have come. 6 months free after 22 years of smoking. I stopped with Allen Carrs book and a session of hypnosis. The most wonderful thing for me about being a non smoker is how awesome a role model I am for my children. My son is a long distance runner my daughter is a ballet dancer and the little one is a rugby league super star. Here I was like the village idiot puffi...

    hey beautiful people, I would like to acknowledge that it does not matter HOW YOU GIVE UP SMOKING, just as long as you do it. Use patches, champix, willpower, hypnosis, gum, lozenges, inhalers, the holy spirit or the dali lama. But keep smoke free. Life is a gift, like yourself, love others and keep going the rest will take care of itself. Be the best you today and every day. Goodluck peoples

    It has been a long day my friends, feeling restless, annoyed and basically like smoking.... am determined not to give in. Day 9 today so I don't want to undo what I have begun. I truly believe it is the best gift you could ever give yourself. Freedom from smoking addiction. I like how I am reminded of my childhood because I can smell again, I like when my four year old says 'you smell beautiful m...

    hey there, I am on day 4 being smoke free and am using patches, last night I forgot to take my patch off before bed, man what a trip, I strangled a teenage girl and fought a young man it's a knock out style in my dreams. No mean feat considering I am 5ft nothing. I have also been thinking alot about how my smoking was a form of self harm which is really confronting and scary, I think I have been ...

    This is my second really serious quit attempt. Last time I quit for four months and begun to smoke again not because I physically felt like smoking but had a persistant feeling I was missing out on something-"like cancer" how ridiculous hey.I also felt like I was not having as much fun because i wasn't smoking. I know intellectually how these reasons don't make sense. I know I need to be more awa...
