Quit smoking forever

I've been here before and I only lasted 5 1/2 hours without a cigarette. I've tried hypnosis and I'm going to quit tonight. I don't want to breathe toxic fumes into my lungs anymore.

I want to be free of the nicotine cravings.

I'm quitting cold turkey again as nicotine replacements just seem to make me want a cigarette more or have no effect. I know that some people are really helped by them but I don't find that they suit me.

Wish me luck on my second attempt with help from the quit smoking forum.

Hello and welcome to the board and well done for re-startng your quit.

I went cold turkey for surgical reasons. In 3 days all the nicotine will be out of your system - which I think is a great kick start.

As everyone says - read read then read some more and take it a day at a time.

If you haven't already read this that Marg has in her message.

It was singularly the most important thing I read that helped me get to 5 months quit.
