SICK OF SMOKING

Posted in Reasons to quit 25 Aug 2021

After nearly 32 years of smoking. I can't do it anymore. It makes me feel like crap. I hate the smell, the taste and I do not want to be a slave to it anymore.

Taking the first steps today.

    A BIG welcome THOS888,
    First step, congratulations. First steps to becoming in CONTROL not be controlled by the nasty cigarettes. Your words have come out of my mouth before, I hear you. They are nasty and disgusting things that should never be pumped into our bodies.

    You sound like you are READY and that is what it takes. You need to WANT to quit and WANTING to quit will give you strength. If you don't have the WANT, you will fail before you even begin.

    One hour at a time, THOS888. Seriously, make little chunks of time to be successful and achievable. Get through one day (24 hours). However you do it, find the way. You sound determined. Keep with us. Really. Work with us. Let us know if you need anything, even if it is to simply express how you are feeling. I now have first hand knowledge that posting is really great therapy..

    Hope to hear more from you. ----- Best!

    Welcome!! Glad you took the first step - that's half the batter.

    Have you tried Champix? I swear by the effectiveness of this drug - if I was able to quit smoking - I believe ANYBODY in this world is capable of quitting.

    Good Luck!

    HI, THOS888; and Welcome
    I personally do not recommend Champix. You can end up like many others on their second, or third ?? QUIT ?? At least try cold turkey first, with the right mindset that you just do NOT WANT to smoke, any more. If you feel that you can't do that, try NRT. They both have higher success rates, in that order. The only successful quit, is the one you never come back from :)
