Hello all, 2020 it is now and I have been a member since 2010.
Sadly I've come back for a new quit attempt. I have spent most of my time away being smoke free but do relapse and these can last a few months.
I have tried everything from champix and zyban to NRT patches and lozenges, Ive been double patched and been successful at times.
I was very wary of vapes in the beginning and out of desperation I went in to a vape shop for advice about the product and walked out with one. I quit smoking that night.
It was the most pleasurable way I have ever succeeded and I am attempting to do it this way again.
Unsure why I went back to smoking but I guess there is no point in trying to figure it out right away, all I know is that I want to give up for good. All the reasons and recognising trigger's can come later.
So hello, I am going to be back on the quit blog as I feel I could find it useful and I may even be able to help someone else.
It means changing all of my bad habits and creating new ones including a more nutritional dietry habits.
I think in my heart of hearts I knew I was sick and perhaps for 4 years I have needed to see it in black and white, but really I see now that there is no sense in even risking ay type of deterioration be it mental of physical.
So to all those struggling like I did. When you know you know ok, do what is right for you and not what is easier at the time.
Best wishes to you all x
Had a couple of things to get sorted so I could really focus quitting. But as I've quit I have realised that other things should of been more important and been dealt rather than worrying about/feeding the addiction all the time.
I am determined to get better for my health and my kids.
I am on line a lot and will be checking n here a bit because I fond it really helps.
Cigarettes NOT smoked: 1230
Total savings: $1,023.00
Happy New Year!!!
Many more to come without those ciggatettes. Made some new and different resolutions this year. Focusing on my health. All things my kids will benefit from.
Not sure if anyone remembers but the last quit attempt i was pregnant and my son was delivered well and he is one this month. Omg does time fly. More reasons to enjoy the time i have healthy and without poison.
I wish you all a safe 2015
