No Smoking Day

Hey guys and gals,

I stumbled across this Forum by chance and i'm so glad that I did!

I've stopped smoking a number of times in the last eight years, the longest being for 6 months and the most recent for two days from Saturday just gone till yesterday. I hate myself for yet again having caved in. :mad:

I'm determined to quit for good though and for the first time am planning to go to a Quit4Life session tomorrow evening.

I've never used a Forum in my life and it's all new and a bit of a mystery to me but from what i've seen I think that the support I could get from here could really help me succeed this time! :)

To all those of you that have stopped already.. WELL DONE! :D You should feel very proud of yourselves and focus on all the benefits in stopping smoking rather than the horrible cravings which is easier said than done I know. Hang in there and don't give up.. it does get better even though I understand that it might not feel that way at the minute.

OK.. i'm waffling aren't I!

Take care and be good! ;)

Hi Carpenter,

Thank you very much for your message.

I've been back smoking just today but i've been able to smoke less than I normally would have. :)

I'll definately be going to the Quit4Life Session tomorrow night to talk through my options as the NRT's that i've tried in the past haven't been right for me I don't think.

Are you smoking at the minute or are you a better man than I and stopped!?

Well done deciding to stop smoking most of us on here have tried many times to stop before and as you know it isn't easy to do but it is doable

Good luck on your quit.. may it be a huge success for you! :)


Hi Margareth & Jase,

Thank you very much for your messages, much appreciated. :)

I hope that your both doing good and that you have a fab weekend.

Take care.


Hi, missed your previous posts, sorry about that, sounds like you are trying to get your head in the right place and that is vital to your quit. Everybody on here has had different experiences so anything you want to ask about, someone will be able to help.

it is also great to come along and waffle, rant, whatever you feel the need.

Good luck stay focused and let us know how you get on.

Yup, been there know that one, getting to midday, then giving in and just having one, then eating fags for the rest of the afternoon.

Glad you found the forums fella, they really helped me on my quit (and still are).

Lots of good advice here, and as you already have quit for 6 months, you know partly what you have to do my friend.

One thing I totally agree with now (although I thought it was a load of tosh at the start of my quit) was re-educating myself about how I view fags, so instead of seeing them as a little pleasure, a little treat for myself and a bit of me time with my best friend B&H Gold, I now see them for what they are, filthy poison sticks and a tax grab.
