Well you are in the right place. Read on here as much as you can, the signitures will give you very helpful advice and arm you in prep for quitting. Post on here often, the supprt of this forum is a very good tool and before you know it you'll be helping others too. :)



I thoght my asthma had gone untillast week when i had an asthma clinic. Nurse told me i really need to stop smoking as i my lungs can't handle it.

Big enough incentive.

Just try using NRT or tablets that your doc can recommend can be used along side whatever you are taking now.

Im using champix (2nd day) so am still smoking but have to chose a quit day in second week.

Give it a go, if its not for you try summit else


Dannyboy said it all - YOU have to want to quit. Feeling you must quit, or should quit isn't enough. You have to want to not smoke anymore.

When you make the decision, go see your doctor who'll advise whether NRT or Champix or something else is suitable for you. I suspect that you're nearly ready or you wouldn't be asking on here. It's a big step - but it's so worth it.

In the meantime - read the posts on this site - they'll help you so much.
