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.

Well I have received some pretty scary news. I have just had a really big shock in relation to my health and I will now be doing everything I can to ensure I have the best chance to fight ailments off.
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

The last day has been great and I am well into my second day. I just keep reminding myself of all the reasons to quit and the reasons to never start again.
I hope everyone is finding it as easy as me.

So here I am back again.
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.
