Quitting young!!

Hello everyone!! My name is Alicia and My reasons for quitting smoking ... Hmmm I am only on day 8 and I feel great so far! I had really bad anxiety from day 3-6 and now I can distract myself from those little episodes. I honestly started smoking at age 15 and now I'm 20 and have met an awesome guy who has encouraged me it's possible take up a new lifestyle. I admit I signed up for the forum because I just need the support from people who have had the addiction and now are in the same boat as me.

Well done for having taken the step to give up, young as you said. :D

You'll find plenty of like-minded people here, both young and old. The advantage you have is that by putting aside smoking now you run a lot less risk later on in life. It is definitely worth embracing a healthier lifestyle!

Good luck, and stay strong!



Well done for giving up.. Like u I had really bad anxiety after 2 weeks of quitting and had it for about 3 weeks were I nearly gave up on quitting.. It will pass I won't lie and tell you it will be soon as everyone's different.. Just post on here web u feel bad or need help.. It helped me loads and still does :)
