Wish I had of kept my last cigarette till now instead of having it earlier. Kids arguing all afternoon about who had more wagon wheels than the other & who hurt who on the trampoline etc.... not very conducive to quitting but the shops shut so not much I can do.

    Hi Sharn. Even though your journey 2 being smoke free is only beginning. The key is believing in yourself. Every time u feel that dreaded craving just say to yourself this is just my brain trying 2 convince me 2 have something I DO NOT need! U CAN do this & u r not alone. That's what this site is 4 2 support 1another through this difficult but by no means impossible journey.

    how did you go? hope you got through okay! im new to this, so hello :) ive only just decided i want to quit, the past two days ive been thinking about it a lot. im still smoking but cutting down, i cant go cold turkey its just not for me. im a fairly heavy smoker :( i run my own business, working from home, as a graphic designer so creating , brainstorming, having cuppas and my smokes goes hand in hand :( i love smoking, this is going to be hard. i have to set a date. im 32 and want to live a long healthy life, right now i have a tight chest and ive been coughing here and there, its clearly due to smoking :( i WISH i didnt love smoking ... very annoying they are bad for you ... its good reading peoples real life daily stories , it is helping me gain motivation to actually SET A DATE to QUIT! plenty of environmental factors atm too, as i am staying at my dads because he was ill, but he smokes. oh gosh i dont know how im going to do this. thanks guys nice to meet you -D

    Hi Sharn :)
    I guess we all know that feeling.. Wishing we had just one more LAST one :)
    Just don't give in to it. Make that first day, and realize you didn't die.. You may feel like it, but it will pass, and each day gets easier :)
    ---- delliah_heythere --- If you post your own story, you can get email notices, and we can maybe help you better.. :) For one thing, we all thought we loved smoking, but only because of the smoke cloud in our brain.. :)

    Hi, yes I have made it through, thanks! great night sleep actually, just now missing my coffee and cigarette. Lots going on & telling myself, gees, can't do it now, will just have to pick another date. But then I read more posts and comments especially the poor lady with aunts and gum disease etc...now my brain is back on track. I'm sure I can get in town & back today without caving in. Thanks Delilah & Red - wishing you both all the best, keep up the good work. This site is a imperative to success. Without it my plan was to buy some & postpone till a better time but nope......change of plans!
