New Year Revolution


Hi All,

For the first time for as long as i can remember, I won't be giving up Smoking on the first of Jan as I already have:cool:

With a lot of help from members on this site, Champex and little bit of will power I have been smoke free for NINE months:D

Every bloody year I would say to myself, thats it, I have had enough of this foul smelling, life threatening , money waisting addiction.

I think the longest I ever lasted was a few days:o

So i will have to think up a new revolution to break :rolleyes:

Good Luck to anyone who is thinking of stopping this new year.

The folk on here can really help you succeed.

Happy new year to you all


Smoke free for,Nine months, six days, 10 hours, 19 minutes and 19 seconds. 5628 cigarettes not smoked, saving £985.00. Life saved: 2 weeks, 5 days, 13 hours, 0 minutes.

hi Mark

Well done on 9 months. wow i dont know if i can do that but i will try. How have you done it? Was it hard for you?

Happy new year to you .



Well done! Nine months is pretty awesome! I hope you feel suitably proud of yourself, and you will no doubt inspire many people who are about to start their quits for the New Year.

I hope you don't mind if I add to your post to say that this place is awesome - but the reason it is so good is because it helps with the phsycological issues the smoker goes through when they stop. By far the most difficult part is the "habit" - the phsycological craves. While the Physical craves are normally gone in a week - 10 days, the phsycological ones can last many months and the only way to beat them quickly is to educate yourself. Read everything you can find and then some, read it twice or 3 times. Read about peoples progress on here, read , , and anything else you can find on the subject of smoking or quitting.

Medication such as NRT or Champix can only help with the physical side - I urge you to educate yourself from the start (preferably before the start!) to give you the best possible chance of success.

Lastly, Don't panic if you have failed before - it doesn't matter. This time is a fresh start, and most successful quitters have failed several times before.

Oh, and we are all here to help you - post often, and we will do all we can to advise you :D

My name is Stuart and I have chosen not to feed my nicotine addiction for 3 Months, 2 Weeks, 1 Day, 1 hour, 5 minutes and 48 seconds

That's 106 days, during which time I would have smoked 2,120 fags at a cost of £447.51.

Choosing to not smoke has saved 1 Week, 8 hours and 40 minutes of my life.

Very good post stuart

May be you should put that in day one ready for thursday. xxxx

Isn't that where it is already? :D

But, thanks Linda - perhaps a "welcome" thread to any new quitters would be a good idea...

Sorry Stuart. Give myself a good telling off. xx
