Still hanging in there!!

Hi everyone - haven't gone through the newer members posts yet - but I WILL make it my priority in the next couple of days. Just wanted to say that for those who know my story - I am still around and still not smoking - YO!! :) Keep at it - and you must be serious about it as lots of folk decide its a New Year's Resolution. If you can muster up the courage and determination - no time like the present. And you only have to do it for one day at a time and not forever(we can only live in today!) split it into an hour if you have to - but go for gold it is so worth it. :D ;)

How long since you stopped? Does it get easier?


Hi Kiz wiz - I have stopped since 2nd of april - and had tried many times before. I think the clincher for me was whatever happened to me - including I had been told of getting lung cancer - I decided the only thing I had to do was not have ONE puff of a real fag. It always set me off again - and this time it has worked for me. I used the mini lozenges and nicotine spray - which the mist does give you that 'hit'. I now only have my dummy vapouriser. it does get easier and I needed to plan for the times i would normally have a ciggy - first thing - meals - drinks. bed time etc. I used the vape for those times and the nrt for the other times. I deffo do not want to start again - my house smells clean - and the stress of finding places to go for a fag isnt there anymore. so keep on at it - and if you succumb - get back up and start again 8)
