This is it I am hoping to quit this habit for good this time. Went to the doctors this week and she was shocked that I was smoking again and read me the riot act saying I will have a heart attack or stroke within 5 years!
My darling partner has been smoke free now for 3 months and I feel awful smoking when he doesn't. So I have some good reasons. Now I have to put in the hard work and kick this long time addiction for good.
Got to stay strong.
Thanks for reading. And hope everyone has a lovely smokefree day with your friends and loved ones.

    Great decision bloop, I'm on day 11 and I've spent those days sipping on a water bottle, it really helps a lot, this site is amazing, there is lots of support here to help you through, be strong, and focus on one minute at a time over the next couple of days, you can do this 😃

    Good choice. If you get a chance read as much as you can about quitting, I found it helped a lot knowing about this addiction and being educated about what to expect and how to handle the hard days. Don't be scared to ask for help either there is one whole lot of experience here

    Sounds like your doctor has made it a pretty simple choice, quit smoking if you don't want to die any time soon!
    Reckon I know which option I like best.
    good luck and take it one day at a time.

    When you stop smoking you will soon notice health improvements. It's very nice when your fingers no longer smell of nicotine too.Keep sipping your water bottle...distract yourself when you crave a cigarette ...and read blogs to see how we coped with different aspects of our quits.Take it slowly -Stay strong and believe you can do this😊

    Thank so everyone you guys will be keeping sane I think. I forgot about a water bottle thanks for the tip. Had a stressful day and managed to not have a smoke. Cravings are really kicking tonite. But might get an early night. Thanks again folks, great inspirations!
