Day 5 going strong

Posted in Getting started 04 Apr 2020

I am 25 now and have smoked on and off (mainly on) for my adult life. It is time to quit and I am finally at the point in my life where I have a good, professional job, a partner who I live with and some experience behind me.

I am currently on day 5. I have been through many quits in my previous couple of years. So it's difficult going forward with a positive attitude. But, this time I am going to spend my first month reading other people's experience and motivation to try and soak up some positivity.

Will update you how I get on soon.

    Well done Chance, I’m quitting today and have had lots of failed previous attempts, I definitely understand the fear of relapsing again. Trying to go on with a positive mindset too. I haven’t used this forum before so I’m hoping the support will be the change that makes me quit for life!
    We got this!! 😊
