    Welcome Chellie, you've got it in one👏👏 I admire you for having the strength to go cold turkey, I believe its the highest success rate and we all face the nicotine withdrawel at some stage anyway.

    Keep those eyes firmly on the prize of freedom Chellie and you will be fine. We are all cheering you on🙌💪👏😊

    Hi Chellie, brilliant decision and you are stronger than anything the nico demon can come up with.
    Take it one day at a time, and do whatever you feel you have to to not smoke. It gets easier, it really does.
    I quit a 48 year habit and I had many attempts, until I finally realised my mindset was all wrong. I needs to want to quit more than I wanted to smoke.
    I needed to really hate the whole smoking thing....we don’t crave what we truly don’t want.. you can do this, just believe in yourself and you will succeed.

    You've got this. You have made up your mind and you are like a dog on a bone.
    You will bury this addiction and bad habit.

    I came across this old post and found it inspiring. I hope you do too.

    Hello Chellie and welcome! I know what you mean. I also felt I could never quit and I also thought the only way I could quit was to be locked up or in the hospital for days. However, that was not the case and I am almost 8 weeks of not smoking. Like you, I smoked for decades. I made several half-hearted attempts to quit before I finally got serious. Finally got the right mindset.

    Smoking is a killer. It takes your life away and does NOTHING for you at all. It causes stress, it doesn't take stress away! You came to the right community. Read, read and read some more! You will learn and be inspired. When I am on shaky ground (so to speak) even now, I plow through lots of posts and it really does amazing things to help my mindset get back on track. You can do this, and you obviously have a strong attitude about kicking the nicotine addiction out of your life. FOR GOOD! YOU GOT THIS!!!! Stay strong!!!
