Is there a real hope :( ??

Hello,

I started thinking of how bad smoking is last new year eve, I smoked a lot and drank a lot, and in the morning I waked up with a very bad feeling, I felt like I am destroying my body and my soul , So I decided to quit, no matter what the price :mad: But unfortunately each day I realize more and more that there's no hope :confused: I made many attempts to quit , but each time it lasts for 2 or 3 weeks, and the I go back and buy more cigs and smoke all the day and night , then my brain starts to think again and I decide to quit again and I do it for 2 or 3 days , or a week , or ..... the I fail :mad:

This time , I think its my last chance , I've joined the gym , and I've joined this forums, and I am 100% want to quit. But if I fail this time , I won’t try again , I will surrender !!

help me plzzz :(

  • HI, and welcome to the forum. The best way and to a lot of us here the only way to quit and stay quit is to educate yourself about nicotine addiction. Read, read, and read some more. The more you know the better. There are 3 good links at the bottom of my post. Hope they help you, I know they did me. Post as often as you can and let us know how you are doing.:)

  • Thanks alot.

    Hope this time is the real one , no going back anymore ...

    I have a question , does smoking link to hearing loss ? Iam facing some hearing problems with my left ear :( I made a test at hospital and found that I lost 20% in my left ear, and the reason was unknown! But I've read some articles which tell that hearing loss is somehow related to smoking! Is this true? :mad:

  • Hi Nofnof :D

    I have never heard that hearing loss can be linked to smoking so I don't really know about that

    However I have a hearing problem and now have a hearing aid but the Dr and the Hospital both said it was age related with me

    Don't know if that is any help as I obviously don't know your age but I'm 66 so that would definitely tie in for me

    Have a word with your Dr about this he should be able to advice on it and if necessary arrange for a hearing aid for you

    Love

    Welcome to the forum nofnof! In my opinion, it is the failed quits that make you be successful in the end..... we learn things each time we try so I urge you to never surrender to cigarettes.... stopping smoking is all about flipping the switch (mostly mentally)...... some flip the switch by simply making up their mind, reading a book, hypnosis, etc..... and some (like most of us) have to work at it a bit.... I suggest reading as much as you can about your addiction to help make that switch..... many of us have felt like you and have succeeded..... so can you! Good luck!

    Hi Marg

    I am 27 :mad: I've been smoking 5 years , on the collage 3rd year ! :mad:

  • I am 40, had been smoking for 15 years fella. If i've learned one thing over the attempts i've made to quit.. its NEVER to think 'this is the last chance i'm giving this'. You are worth so much more than to be a slave to this addiction, you can with strength of mind and determination do this. You have to believe in yourself.

    As much as it can get a bit difficult this quitting thing, it repays you back later for all the effort you put at it. Just stick with it.

  • Hi Nofnof :D

    Obviously not age related then for you but could be anything

    Go and see your Dr and ask him about it hearing aids are almost invisible nowadays and certainly don't stand out as they used to if you need one

    Could just be something simple like a lump of wax in there

    Love

  • Hi Sharon, you are making me wish I had gone on champix :D I'm 69 and think I've forgotten what sex is like :)

    You can make your posts as long as you like because long posts are generally more interesting.

  • I had the most amazing adventures at the start if my quit. I had the best sex. I was a spy. A millionaire. I travels around the world and had a dream house and owned a boat..

    Then I woke up.. And that was off the patches. Them dream were amazing. I'm on some tablets now. Start them today and they can give me them dreams. I hope so.
