First day

avatar-icon

I'm sitting here on the end of my bed at 10.43pm starting at my babies and going over my finances. I can't believe I spend X amount of money on cigarettes alone. My kids deserve this money and not my disgusting habit. I'm going to do this for my whanau and save money for a better smoke free future. Anyone can say this and relapse but I'm going to make it happen. Just happy Im finally getting help through this site.

I've just relapsed after 2 days smoke free I want too quit because its un healthy and effects the way I am with my daughter because of the added stress of having a energetic 3 year old I find myself stressing out and always thinking about my next smoke. I've spent hundreds of dollars on smoked and vapes and I keep going round in circles I dearly I just want to vape and if I can I want too stop all together the loop I'm stuck in is driving me insane because of the in consistancy

Starting to quit again but this time I'm sticking to it. I've been a whole day today without a smoke and I'm not even tempted for one.

avatar-icon

Smokefree days: 2,924
Total savings: $40,351

Back again to share some inspiration... 21 June 2012 was my date to quit - and here I am 8 years later and still a great quitter!

If this is your first few days, keep going!
If this is you second try, keep going!

You can do it, because I did it and I never thought I could!
Avoid those triggers, get something for your hands to do in the car (squeeze a stress ball helped me), and put the money you save in the first 6 months away every week and reward yourself with a gift.
You can do it!
You can keep going!
Put your mind to it and keep going!
Stay quitting strong!

Day 15

avatar-icon

So I have managed to cut my smoking in half at least. It seems that it is just the Habitual side of smoking. Using Champix is making cigarettes taste foul, and I feel a bit nauseous after having one. My body isn't registering Nicotine and I am not feeling any physical cravings to have one. I decided that before my actual quit date I was going to change my routine. I have been having one in the morning before work, and at work I keep busy during my breaks. That leaves me with one after work and maybe one somewhere between then and bedtime. Im feeling pretty positive and I am not showing signs of mood swings. My heart rate has decreased and I am not using my inhaler as often! Whoop Whoop!
