where to start?

I have half heartedly tried to give up for the last couple of days. I have failed!

I have stayed up and read Allen Carrs book and then listened to an audiobook by Gillian Riley. I am still faced with fear.

I think half of it is that I actually gave up for 3 years 11 years ago and stupidly started again thinking I could handle being a social smoker. I think thats where I get the fear from, I know just how hard I found the first couple of weeks.

Can anyone help me!

Thanks

    Kerriann Hi

    it's a big word failed .... i dont see it as a failure i see it as a positive thing because at least you keep trying, it is scary giving up those horrible cancer sticks ... as you know from your past quit.... keep trying kerriann it is plainly obvious you want to do this,look how well you did last time and i think if you get through the first day you will do this .. go on Kerriann give it another go.... painful.... yes .... but at least it wont kill you giving up ...not giving them up will in the end ......... ..:)

  • To be honest I'd suggest dropping into your local chemist or anywhere they have a stop smoking clinic and just see what you're options are (all the Boots near me have a clinic). There's so much out there these days to help you and by going through a clinic you get a little support from them.

    I'd been terrified of quitting for a long time but purely cos I thought I'd change but here I am 2 months along and feeling good :D

    Whatever your decision - good luck xx

  • Thank you both so much, I really do want to do this and won't give up giving up!!!

  • You're welcome - if you want it you'll do it :)

  • Right,this moment, right now.. stop fearing quitting.

    Its not to be feared. Its nothing you should be scared of.

    Instead, start asking yourself the question. Do you want to be free of one of the sickest 'legal' drug addictions there is in this country. Do you want your life back? and will you accept the help of the really awesome people that spend every day visiting this forum with one thing in common.. the desire to be free of nicotine.

    Your'e among friends here, trust us.. and build your determination as much as you can. This IS worth the effort, and yes.. sometimes tears too.. but it IS worth it. Prove to everyone you know now that you can do this, because you SO CAN.

  • Try and find away of stopping that suits you. I never ever thought I'd quit. Then I started taking Champix and now I'm approaching 11 weeks of being a non smoker. Theres many ways of quitting and using this forum will help push you towards a way of finding the quit to suit you. The first step to stopping is seeking help and you're doing that now, the next stepping is building yourself up to quit. Its a big step to stop but - as I'm sure you know - it's so worhtwhile.

    And no - being a social smoker isn't an option. All it is, is just another way for the addicition to start again. I used to be terrified by the thought of never having another cigarette. Now I simply never ever want to have another one. And all it takes to have this massive change is to stop smoking and start living again.

  • Hi friends believe in God He will help u

    and don't stop keep trying.

    Is there a god of tobacco cessation or will any old one work?

    I don't think just any god will do!

  • LMAO I tend to agree must be a special God and he must know why you want to quit else he want help you, it takes huge amounts of will power to crawl away from the Nicco Demon but we can and do manage it eventually.
