  • Congratulations! There is a quit site here on HU if you think it will help.

  • Thank you mrsmummy will look this up

  • Good luck to you. Xxx

  • Thank you sassy

  • You CAN do it. I used to be a heavy smoker of 55 years, came to an impass and said no more and that was that. I have not touched one since, been smoke free for a year now. It takes willpower, a lot of it, but can be done. Good luck, rooting for you.

  • Thank you 2greys i will need help just think this is the right time mind is set well done on a whole year thats great and look forward to being able to say the same on 25th April 2018 and thank you for your support

  • Morning Eunice, yes you are on the right track,I know you can you do it. Yes you will be tempted but hey say no it makes you feel so good. Good luck and remember you can do it, have a wonderful day. Remember we are all supporting you. Take care 😊 xxx Bernadette

  • Thank you Bernadette from to day i am not going to try and am going to do it thats how good i feel thank you for your support it really means a lot take care Eunice

  • You're welcome Eunice, I know how hard it can be. Like you I decided four years ago that I would never smoke again and I haven't,best thing I ever did. 😊 xx Bernadette

  • 4 years well done looks like i have some catching up to do lol

  • I stopped at Christmas, really noticing the difference now, good luck it's perhaps the hardest thing you will ever do.

  • Thank you Badbessie

  • Sending positive thoughts your way. I truly hope you can stop. My daughter in law is stopping, problem is my son smokes so really difficult for her.

  • My husband does not smoke so thats good but my children and some of the gran children do i i have told them stay away they will not like me when i am angry lol

  • Good luck. Please let us know how you get on.

  • Thank you Kitten well i have to do it now after telling everyone on here lol if i dont i will have to go in to hiding lol

  • TopTip! Declare yours to be a non-smoking household and be very strict about it. Anyone you know well enough to invite into your home should care about you enough to observe your rules.

  • Eunice well done you

  • Thank you Teresaddd x

  • Good luck Eunice. I know how hard it is. One day at a time and reward yourself. Every cigarette you don't smoke is a bonus! I couldn't go cold turkey, so I used an e-cig......works for me. Take care. XXX

  • Thank you Pam i find the e-cig makes me sob i have 4 of them so back to the patches it is going to be very hard but nows the time take care Eunice xx

  • Well done dyson with that attitude I am sure you can do it like lots of us in the past has done, everyone is different some can do it easily and some not so, I think a positive attitude can only help.

    take care

    polly xx

  • Thank you Polly i have failed so many times over the years but today i woke up with very strong attitude so fingers crossed i no its going to be hard work but i Want to stop so much this time for me the other time i think its because others wanted me to so to make them happy i tried and failed not this time the only person i can let down is me

  • Well there are so many people on here to support you that must help.

    take care

    polly xx

  • it does Polly people on here are great

  • over two years now for me, smoking since i was a little boy. i stoped the day it sank in that now i really was killing myself. i knew that day i would never smoke again.

    it is a bit of a fight, but its one you cant aford to lose.

  • Hi Hectors well done on you 2 years yes your right it is one i can not afford to lose

  • six years for me. it can be difficult, your head is telling you to have one and your body is screaming nooooo your killing us. listen to your body, it worked for me along with the patches, l had such wonderful dreams on them. good luck if l can do it anyone can, l don't even think about them now. :)

  • well done I did it with champix 11 years ago at first I thought what the hell have I done but so pleased I did you will get lots of support on hear.

    The fact you want to give up will help a great deal good luck 🍀

  • Hi onamission thanks for the support wow 11 years i did try champix 3 times didnt do it for me

  • Good luck to you, I used Champix course of tablets through NHS husband and I gave up together we had failed so many times before but Champix helped us make it. Smoke free for 8 years now I think because we were monitored through our local clinic helped a watchful eye. But whatever works for you you sound determined and positive, you can do it. 🙂

  • Thank you Efolump yes i am very determined and very positive well done on 8 years

  • Oh good luck! One day at a time, as they say

  • Thank misuse x

  • Well done dyson, and just look at the support you're getting. Post as often as you like if it helps, we'll all be glad to hear about your progress, and every hour, every minute even, without the cigs is an achievement.

  • Thank you o2 the support has been great

  • Hi dyson what you have done by stopping today is almost certainly the best decision you will have made in your life. It won't be plain sailing but with will power and support you can do it. I don't think I would be here and relatively well if I hadn't stopped a year ago

  • Thank you jimmy the support means a lot

  • I quit roughly 3 weeks ago. Then I slipped and had a few over Easter. Now I'm back at it. It's been 8 days now. I'm wearing the patch (14 mg) plus lozenges 2mg here and there - I'm distracting w TV series, words w friends and naps and I'm meditating w meditation apps on my IPhone. It isn't easy but it's doable. I'm already breathing better. Good Luck. Oh and I read Allen Carrs "Easy Way to quit smoking" again.

  • just ordered Allen carrs book read it before it helped a bit but dont think i was really ready then
