post for everyone who quit evil fags

Hi all

Great to get the feedback from all and the sucess stories of those who
have quit the habit .

l'm like someone in an incubator at present- away from temptation and the pressures of life. I'm still confined to be bed moslty - coughing my lungs up and not fit for work at least until Jan 10th. and feeling as weak as a cat. However, I am using my time to re- inforce my determination not to touch those filty fags again.

Champix have definetely helped me through the last few days . I haven't had any cravings or little voices telling me I can have one or two . I'm not very strong willed so the tablets are definately helping me and giving me the confidence to succeed.

Molly keep up the good work you are doing great.

Good luck to all and remember on this site we have one thing in common we are all fighting addition to nicotine - no matter how we want to dress it up. By supporting each other through the bad and good we will succeed.

Roll on tomorrow
.

Good luck all!
I gave up year and half ago after reading Alan Carr. I really thought I would never give up and was destined to smoke until it killed me.
For the first few weeks all I thought about was cigarettes but that gradually fades. What really got me through it all was I started C25k like dolliemix.
It will help greatly if you take up a new 'habit' even if its just to head out for a leisurely stroll it will really help get your mind of things- also drink loads of water to clear toxins from your body.

Hi all and well done .

At least ye are back at work and doing so well - take a bow.

Can't wait to get back and looking forward to the challenge of practicing what I 've been preaching . Its easier when I can't get out to buy any . My sister called down to see me yesterday and asked me was I sure I would be ok without the fags. She knew that I would risk life and limb if I needed one and didn't want me out getting pneumonia. I told her I would be ok and that I was not going to smoke.

So far so good and each morning I thank God for another smoke free day. I 'm not big into religion but I find it helps if only to re-enforce my reasons for quitting .

Thank God for the Champix and all the support that I am getting from you all. It takes the isolation away from it.

We'll stick together through thick and thin and we'll get there

Hello fellow "quitters", well done to all. I've been smoking since I was about 16 and I've made a few attempts to stop like most of us. Longest i was ever off them was 6 months. Now, at 41, I think it's time to go for it again.

Today is my day one. I'm reading Alan Carr (again) which always get's me of to a good start and i am also using (disgusting) lozenges for the "worst" moments, something i haven't tried before.

Wish you all the best of luck with the quitting process!!

I quit smoking today. I listened to the Paul Mckenna cd's and haven't smoked all day until now, just had one and really didn't enjoy it at all!

Whoop day 4 done and dusted

Congrats to all who are doing so well

Being back in work is a god send as I don't really have the time to be thinking about smoking. So now I just have to keep my evenings busy and I'm sorted. Started back running last night too so that's motivating me to stay strong this time

Till tomorrow me dears

keep up the good work everyone and remember in just about a month it will be so much easier, you will feel brilliant and really proud of yourselves. Im on week 20 at the minute and its great.

two tips that really helped me and might help you too

most smokers think that they don't stink - in fact they cannot smell the stink of smoke whatsoever. After a few days off them you will grow to actually feel like puking when you smell the clothes of a smoker. remember ALL SMOKERS STINK TO THE HIGH HEAVEN - just because your sense of smell has diminished don't think you are one of the lucky ones who does not stink - YOU DO.

put your 8.55 away EVERY DAY in a jar - believe me after a month you will look at it and amaze yourself with what you are saving- after two months you will be delighted - after three months you will be abhorred at the amount of money you were actually blowing up in smoke. Its no good just doing the calculation in your head - you need to actually do it every day as a ritual to help you along. it works.

Day 6 now

Sense of smell is back and the smokers smell terrible.

Also food is starting to taste different and stairs isnt as hard.

Getting the odd craving but nothing major.
