Anyone want to pass on some major no no's of the first stages of quitting smoking? What absolutely is a trigger? How hard is it really? Have I really been missing a huge point all my life? Was it emotional for you realizing and accepting that you were hurting yourself for so long???
You have to start somewhere this is my Day 14, with the help of quitline😊 and patches 😊 I know that this is a battle but I am determined to succeed after a pack a day for maybe 45 years!
I have been reading the blog for the past few hours and see what a fantastic community lives here.
More from me soon, just wanted to get my first post off.
One month! My mind is focused there's no going back.
I'm feeling really good and not tired every day like before.
I am still vaping and sucking on lozenges. I've tried 0% vape but it maybe a bit soon. I'm a bit concerned I maybe vaping too much and I must have it everywhere with me like ciggs. I guess my next step is to slow right down on vaping. I've been concerned I'll lose it as I deal with the public. Over all though very proud of myself and have all this extra cash which I'm spending on treats like new clothes.
I'm feeling very positive and a lot happier about myself.
Be strong peeps it a mental game, retrain the brain....Have an awesome day ❤✌
I missed a key day, Yesterday...
So belatedly, 'Happy Women's Day!' 🤗 Us girls need to look out for ourselves 😉👍
As some of You know, I've booked a special occasion cruise-for Hubby&I. It leaves at Easter....
I've been to see my quack today & it appears, We may not be on it 😢
He used the term 'morbidity' when describing my condition...
then recommend We don't go 😭
Of course, the final decision is Ours....oh my, mixed emotions!!!
Lucky I smoke, no more...or I'd be out at my favoured spot, puffing up a storm...4Ds in play today NOPE 🙏
Hi all! I’ve finally decided (and actively trying) to quit smoking. Im wearing patches which are really helping!
I must say that im finding today ultra hard! I dont feel like socialising or being around people (avoiding triggers) and my mood is so foul. I still dont want a cigarette though because i cant let 2 days go to waste!
Im avoiding a family gathering tonight because im serious about quitting and avoiding temptation.
Please tell me it gets easier! Please tell me its worth it!
WOW! I have not smoked in 10 days! Been taking Chantix-----I do not "want" a cigarette---BUT---has anyone who stopped experienced:
1. a very itchy, dry throat!! What do I do? I have used cough drops, lozenges, mints, etc......
2. somewhat dizzy and nervous and VERY easy to get upset---what do I do?? I've tried meditation, staying busy, etc....
Hello first day stop smoking ..not cutting down made a decision to quit ,, tried back in 2006 for 10 months ,, negative thoughts already creeping in decided to check out quit line ,, been 13 hours without a ciggy,, evening time I guess relax time etc maybe change routine or replace that after dinner ciggy with something else little devil on my shoulder needs a flick,,, lol Wearing my patch and not a patch of ash for once .. using gum also trying to stay positive and remember why I decided .. shock therapy works for me lol nasty images of what could be.. 36 years smoking.... now watching my partner go out for a ciggy... TBH day one has gone quite well .. considering I would go into panic mode when I was near the end of my packet ..watching my partner go out for a ciggy .. don't be resentful me lol anyway thanks for listening . hope everyone's journey is going well ….
