Support needed please

Posted in Hints and tips 04 Mar 2018

Hi guys. I've tried NRT and spray. Just cannot get past those patterns. My throat and ears now sore, have self diagnosed on google " throat cancer!" worst thing to do. Please I'd love some team support and help. I'm fit strong and love my children and have let them DOWN with promising to stop only to say "Mom is really very stressed" at the moment. I promise I'll stop - lying to myself and then. HELP please

    You can do this, drink lots of water and focus on family, set yourself a goal, something you and your family have wanted to do but the $$$ stoped you as you spent it on cigarettes(keep it small to start with) draw that money out of the bank every time you would of brought cigarettes. I have saved $500 so far in 18 days, weekend away with family here we come

    Google QSN :-) trust Me, it is the best thing i have ever done for myself! I have tried EVERYTHING from patches to champix and QSN 100% works! I was a pack a day smoker and am now 2 weeks smoke free and have had hardly any stress & hardly any cravings :-) it's all 100% natural ingredients and the only way to explain this program is literally....... MAGIC!

    Hiya Dicky, just remember that smoking makes you more stressed than if you didn't smoke. Smoking doesn't cure anything. Try mindfulness perhaps. Lay down and relax for two minutes and concentrate on your breathing when you get stressed.

    Hi, Dicky; and welcome :)
    Many here, highly recommend Allen Carr's book,, The Easy Way To Quit Smoking,, It can help you change the way you think, and get past the illusion that there is anything good about smoking.. You must make up your mind, that you don't want to smoke. You don't want to be a slave to a cigarette. You have to take your mind back.. Smoking makes you stupid. I know, I was a stupid smoker for 45 years. You can do this.. :) There will be physical discomfort, but the real fight is in your mind. Are you willing to let a little tube of tobacco beat you ?

    Take walks, yes - find some little snacks (it is ok), remember it is a mind game.... listen to everyone here. They know what you are going through and you are not alone. Day 32 here and finally getting better. The rewards to hold on are far greater than giving in. Keep a list of how many ways you feel better each day...., soon, you will go for a longer time before you think about smoking. Then the victories will start to add up and you will be so happy!

    Yes, Allen Carr's book "Quit Smoking Now" helped me greatly along with small infrequent doses of spray. Been 4 months for me I was a 40 a day smoker for 50 years. I can now say I choose not to smoke, it is a mind game as the others say.

    HI Dicky, how are you going? I found the first 2 weeks really hard and look I have relapsed here and there but in past month I might have had 10 cigarettes. So I reset my quit date. But I have not bought any and saved over $400. Do you live with a smoker? Maybe that is being a problem? Try and set a reward to look forward to. I bought myself some nice stuff today that I wouldn't normally do but I thought, well, I have saved loads of money and spend most of the past month smoke free. This month, I am determined to report in that I have made the next 4 weeks smoke free. And I intend to treat myself to a really nice spa, or posh dinner somewhere to celebrate. Just keep thinking of all the benefits. Good luck. Keep trying Dicky.
