  • Well said Tracey!

    Perhaps you're reading this and thinking you're the world's most addicted smoker.

    Perhaps you're reading this and thinking you've tried and failed before and you'll never be able to win the battle.

    Perhaps you're reading this and thinking you just can't imagine happiness without your cigarettes.

    EVERY long term quitter on this forum had all these thoughts and more. There is nothing special about us, we don't have superhuman powers, but we did it - and so can you, armed with self-belief, the right knowledge and the right quitting tools.

  • Yes come and join us you have nothing to lose but everything to gain. I am 72 and have been a smoker since I was 26 so your never too old to quit.

  • Hi, I am sooo happy that I can post. Sadly there was a fault with the website which prevented registrations however it seems to have been rectified. Perhaps there are many people like me who were unable to post :( I will introduce myself on the Welcome page :)

  • Yup, I agree, sign up, cause if you're struggling even a little, coming on here and being part of a community will help you tremendously. Reading is great, that alone will help, but helping others, giving your support, continuously repeating positive suggestion to others will help you 're-wire' your brain much faster. Quitting smoking is all about changing your thinking, and some of use need more repeating to really get it stuck into our brain that we are not losing something but gaining. Sign up!

  • Sounds good , where do I sign ? with my 27 + years smoking ,one quit for two years over ten years ago then back on them and ever since now on the rolling tobacco , tried patches till I became allergic to them , even recently purchased a e cigarrete which is nice and tastes like the reall thing but somehow still find myself going back to the dreaded reality of hard smoke , few puffs and my fingers orange , dread to think what my insides look like , I know its bad I know I would feel much better and full of energy and life when I stop and taste and smell things better , however you all know my mind plays games and cant seem to click the logic button and is misguided by the sweet taste of " just one more drag , one more wont do any harm " the problem is one more is never enough and is always followed by the need for just one more again . I am at the crossroads I know the road I want to go down , but I feel im going to get halfway down there and have to turn back because I forgot to bring my ciggies ,

    thanks very much today I have decided to quit in fact I have just had my last roll 5 minutes ago , I have had enough of this and enough of not being in control of my own actions anymore as if I am being controlled by outer forces , no that's not even possible all these decisions I make to smoke are mine and mine alone , misguided subconsciously maybe yes , however its time to take control again , I did not need a cigarette after the ordeal of childbirth 40 years ago , and for fourteen years after so im sure these past 20 plus years since smoking I haven't actually needed one single puff of that smoke , I just done it because I thought that's what relaxed me made me feel secure and nice , it wasn't I was lied to by myself , it was myself that gave me that feeling of security and calmness not the cigarette , that was just a prop , I got a good feeling about today.

  • Great news. You won't regret it

  • Hi siggyhater and a very warm welcome from me. Congratulations on making a very wise decision. Please do me a favour and if you feel that you want to have a smoke at all, think about it first, come on heare and have a read of some posts and post yourself. Make sure you have at least 3 replies first.

    NOPE ever is the only way to fully beat this thing and you have an army of people on your side 100% of the way :)

  • Good morning, I have been watching the site for a while, you all seem so supportive of each other... I am on day 22 of my quit and my resolve is starting to fall...... I almost feel a sense of sheer panic.... just one, which I know it wouldn't be of course. How can i stop these feelings of panic? Any advice would be appreciated, thank you

  • Welcome to the forum pannuk. You're doing well on day 22 already. Use breathing, as if you're having a cigarette, but instead taking in fresh air, and breathe through the nose rather than the mouth as mouth breathing can increase anxiety/panicky feelings. Say to yourself NOPE, not one puff ever. I use this often as a trigger to stop me thinking about cigarettes. And remember how disgusting they really make you feel. It's not good, well maybe for a few seconds but even with that we are fooling ourselves. Remember how well you've done.

  • Firstly great to have you here, How are you quitting patch, gum, champix, ct?

    I,m sorry I did not experience panic attacts, how ever am sure done one will be along soon to help.

    It might be good idea to post in welcome room.

    21 days fantastic, one little step at a time doing great job.

  • Good morning pannuk and welcome to the forum!

    Well done on reaching 22 days so far, you have done so well. These feelings cannot be stopped as far as I know, it is about anticipating them and being ready to deal with them without smoking.

    When you have felt like this what have you been doing so that you do not smoke so far? Also what quit method have you used?
