After months of smoking again (been smoking on and off, mainly on, since i was 11 - im 26) Im 1 week into vaping without a need at all for a smoke. Ive started at a high dose nicotine and plan to go down in mgs as I run out of juice (the bottles of vape juice are massive, itll last me a month at least) . 1 week in I’ve already seen benefits, no smokey clothes, extra money to get things and no stress to try have money to get smokes if i run out before my next pay.. omg the phlegm that comes out in the first few days though 🤢 anyone else had that problem?
Anyone else taking the vape route? My friends been smoke free via vape for months and she’s down to 3mg of nicotine in hers. This definitely shows me it can work on a personal level because i know how much she smoked and how beneficial its been for her
Honestly - I am fed up today. Fed up with my ex - he keeps breaking in to my house when I am not home and making himself at home. I kicked him out almost two months ago because he was having an 18 month long affair - and I was the idiot who didn't know. Now he's always at my house, doesn't pay me any money (not even child support this week) hes there right now, sick, while I am at work. Smoking in my conservatory (where I used to smoke) and it is hard to get through these cravings when I come home to house smelling like cigarettes. Give me strength haha - sometimes it just makes me feel pathetic and like a push over / doormat - which I kind of am because I haven't said anything to him yet, because I don't want to talk to him. Good news though - still smoke free - bring on day number three!!!
Yes fellow quitters - I am over the four week mark and not looking back.
Sooooo nice to be over the craziness of mental mindgames I was playing with myself. I had an absolute loathing for cigarettes and all they were doing to me, and yet they were controlling me.
I have won!! ha ha
Breathe deep breaths to overcome craving pain. Then breathe normal walk over to the tap wash your face or shower. Drink some water. Wait out the craving and do something to distract yourself. Stay active. Don't overeat or bloating may have you reaching for a smoke which you should of got rid of somehow. Eat at regular intervals. That's all I can think of to help you novices get started. Keep building that will power that comes from one day at a time as you beat the cravings one hour at a time and then you'll see it can be done. As long as you keep trying there is no failure to quit!

Hi guys I couldn't wait till tomorrow to post my second hundy...there's definitely no cigarette smoking going on here...hubby said quitting smoking has saved us...and it really has...it was super hard at the start being under the influence of the drug but with time it's definitely gotten easier and I know being a part of this site has amplified my quit..so thanks to all those who have supported me you all rock!😘😍
I have caught son's germs..blah I'm worse in the mornings and I'm mega sleepy...so no gyming for me just lots of rest and watching my shows..I only have 2 seasons left of True Blood 😭😭😭 still haven't finished Game of Thrones and I was recommended Banshee to start watching...it's been raining so hard here in Edgecumbe so I'm happy staying in 😊
OK so my headache has subsided, thanks all that commented - it may have been due to jaw clenching like you said Nana22 - and feeling stressed in general. I had had a lot of water yesterday to help ease my cravings so I was definitely not dehydrated.
I slept pretty good considering I have just quit and usually I get pretty bad insomnia from quitting. Bring on today - feeling less stressed and ready to face the day and I will just keep chanting in my head NOPE NOPE NOPE.
2 years and one month smoke free yippie!
I had a friend stay on the weekend, an old smoking buddy. They are still smoking. The smell of the cigarettes on them was disgusting, it lingered and lingered and then when I thought it had faded, out they would pop for another one! I forgot how bad the smell is YUCK!
I am so happy I am smoke free for 100 more reasons than the smell alone though!
KEEP GOING EVERYONE it is worth it!!!!
