Day 1

Hi All,

I have tried to quit smoking more times than I care to remember but this time I am completely determined.

I turned 37 last week and I want to try for a baby with my wonderful husband and I need to be in good physical condition to do so.

I will be relying heavily on you lovely people to help me through the first few weeks, the longest time I have quit for is 3 months and that was a long, long time ago now. I frequently quit for a few days at a time, more or less on a weekly basis and it is just gettng to be completely ridiculous now.

I hope everyone is well and fighting this nasty addiction / habit.

Bye for now

  • Hi Mel

    Best reason in the world to quit


  • Hi Mel

    Welcome :)

    I could have written that post myself......other than the trying for a baby bit! Spent most of last year quitting on Monday to start again a couple of days later. This time it feels different. Nearly done two weeks and feeling so good about it. I think you just have to keep trying until it finally clicks that 'smoking is not an option'. When you get that there's nothing to stop you.

    Good luck :)
