Newbie here! Quit date 1st Aug

Hi everyone!

Just thought I would say hello as now preparing to quit on 1st Aug.

I am 53 years old and have smoked for 41 years up to 30 a day!

I have quit a few times in the past but seem to relapse after about 6 months. I am taking champix for as long as I can stand the brain fog with my job as they do help. I have also got Allen carrs book and hypnotism on my I pad!

All systems go now! Just waiting for the day!

  • Hello. Good to have you here. I am 45 and have smoked for about 30 years. Having just relapsed (again) through my own stupidity, I am back trying again. Quitting can feel quite isolating at times and this group is worth it's weight in gold.

    Good luck. Come here if things get tricky.🙄

  • Hi BevJk , welcome to this great forum

    My name is Jenny, I'm 50 and was smoking 40 a day for 35 years. I have attempted to give up numerous times before. I too read Allen Carrs book and went and had hypnotherapy. I have a relaxation hypnotism on my iPad that I try to listen to when going to bed or just stressed. I swear by it and the good thing is it only cost me $5. Good luck and I look forward to reading your posts.

  • Good luck Bev. I was using champix too (just stopped taking it due to feeling sick). Look forward to reading your updates. Champix is fab for getting through those early weeks.
