    Yes, you always had smokes close at hand, but that doesn't mean that they did anything. Looking at smoking differently and break away from the constant control it has over your life....It is an addiction and became a psychological habit. We can quit when we see the truth and choose change. Think positive!

    You are smart to realize it's time to say goodbye. Congratulations for your day 1 and now, day 2!! Keep it going,... you'll get there!

    Hi Leanne, time to change your mindset. Take off those rose coloured glasses and see smoking for what it really is. Not your friend, not your companion.
    Simply a dirty habit that robbed you of self esteem, money, and a whole lot more. Learn to hate them and you will not crave them at all. What you think they gave you is an illusion, you got through all the ups and downs all by yourself. You will get through this too and be overjoyed that you did. Life is so much better when you don’t smoke. Go girl...you can do this

    Hi Leanne, like you, cigarettes and I have been friends for around 40 years. And been through everything with me. However, I have been referred to a specialist as my breathing has changed. This is the warning I needed to see this filthy addiction for what it is. I want to retire in a few years and enjoy it. That is my motivation and stay strong its not easy
