Trying again

Hello everyone

I was here just over 2 years ago. I managed a month of not smoking and then relapsed. I had a gum abcess and was in terrible pain, made the mistake of reaching for the cigs.:( Still, no excuse.

Anyway, I'm back and hopefully this time I will stop for good. I am using patches and slapped one on this morning. I'm finding it hard but am going to give this everything I've got. So, my last cigarette was 9pm last night.

Please wish me luck again.

Wendy

  • Good luck Wendy. I'm sure you can do it this time.:)

  • You wont need luck Wendy, you know you can do a month standing on your head, then onwards and upwards. People do say read and read some more, but that's up to you. Well done on your new quit though. David.

  • The very best of luck to you. Hope you succeed this time.. post here as often as you can too, it helps.

  • Many thanks for the replies.

    I have been reading here for the last couple of days and will continue to read lots.

    My admiration to all of you who have stopped and stayed stopped. I hope to join you all. I really am going to give it my best.

  • You can do it!

    Hi Wendyann

    You sound determined enough to make it this time, I'm sure you will!

    Just take it one day at a time, and come to these pages when you're feeling ropey or need a lift - it really works.

    Good luck! :)

  • Well done Wendy and good Luck with your quit.

    IMHO the electronic cigarette ( i have one ) is so much like smoking a real cigarette its not the answer!

  • Hello WendyAnn

    Well done on coming back and good luck on your quit.

  • Thank you for the replies everyone. I have made it to day 2, shall post there later on. I have got a nicorette inhalator, used it a couple of times yesterday for when I felt a bit desperate.:D

    Another day, another battle, one which I am determined to win.:)

  • Good for you Wendy, take it one day at a time, just get trough today without smoking. Do you have any side efects with the Champex there is lots of us Champex users on here and we all seem to react differently, but we have stopped smoking so the side efects are worth putting up with.

    Stick at it.

  • good luck

    hi good for you for trying again this is the first time i have tried i have smoked between 30 and 40 a day for about 15yrs so its tough going i am on champix and i got to day 9 on the champix and didnt think it was going to work then it kicked in i am only on day 4 of no smoking so i am very new to this but we can all support each other and get through this we can do be strong and be brave good luck take care xx keep me informed on how you are doing lynn

  • Hello there

    Sorry don't know anything about champex, I'm on NRT, patches and have a nicorette inhalator for if the cravings get really bad. I suppose whatever method we use we still have to use willpower and after so many years of smoking the habit is very hard to stop.:(

    Good luck everyone.

  • Sorry i posted in the wrong thread:o

  • i am only on day 4 of no smoking so i am very new to this

    Don't knock it Lynn, like you it's my first go at quitting, and after four days I though i'd done bloody well. Every day for the first week was like my birthday, I never dreamed I could go that long, but I did, and you can do it too, just sticking with people who've been there and done it helps loads. David.

    I know you're not a new member as such but will give you my standard welcome and advice post and hope I don't offend you by doing so

    Welcome to the forum and well done on the decision to quit possibly one of the most important you will ever make and you will be losing nothing but you will regain control of your life and that has to be good

    You will find all the help and support you need on here as we all help each other just like a family we are here for you every step of the way cheering the good days and sympathising with the bad but the good far outweigh the bad

    Read the posts on here you will find a lot of tips and advice and in the signatures of a lot you will find links to other sites just click on them Here are 2 I find very good to start you off whyquit.com and woofmang.com Read, read and then read some more as the more you read and learn about why you smoked and about your addiction the easier your quit will be

    This link is good for the psychological part of quitting whyquit.com/whyquit/A_Sympt...
