Quit Support

One Year!

Yesterday at 10:21am was my one year mark. This 30 year smoker has not had a single cigarette or drag on a cigarette for one year and a day! I had a fit quitting even after I discovered e-cigs, but finally decided ok God, you gotta help me. He did and so I smoked that final smoke, picked up my exit and haven't looked back. I don't even think of them anymore. I thought at some point I'd have one because I loved smoking so much, but I don't think so. I love being free from the chains too much to ever go back even for a visit.

Well done, great news, I am just embarking on my no smoking commitment starting Monday, it's lovely to hear how other people are doing, it certainly helps me to push forward, thanks for sharing xx


Hi Aliebee, good luck for Monday!!! It's great that you've called in on the site before you're date and would love to heat how you are doing :)

There are so many people on here that have loads of great hints and tips for whichever quit method you've chosen so if you need anything please just yell :)


Hiya Alie and welcome to quit support :)

Great to see you're ready for your quit on Monday and as Lily has said we're here to help in any way we can :)

Good luck, stay positive and you can do it :) :) x


Aup Aliebee, a big warm welcome to our lovely quit support community :) Its great to hear your starting your quit on Monday :) just wondering if you have made a quit plan or not :o

If not, then just sit yourself down a minute and when your comfy, I will begin :o

Write a list of WHY's you want to quit.

Think of when it is going to be the hardest times for you and try to think of a way to help you at these times :)

Maybe think of a hobby that you could do, which would keep you and your hands busy :)

Are you thinking of exercising - running, walking, going to the gym or dancing to a cd :o exercising has helped me a great deal :)

Are you going to use a form of NRT to help you at them bad times :o

What about joining a quit smoking cessation at your Doctors or chemist :)

Snacking :o a lot of our members on here, including myself, find that snacking on things help us to get through :) preferably healthy snacks of course :D :D I found that when I first quit, ermmm, I couldnt go to the toilet :o sooooo, I started snacking on grapes, job sorted :)

Maybe put the money you would have spent on fags, in a jar, this way you can watch it grow and grow, day by day and I tell ya it soon grows :) This is a great incentive for you to quit :)

Well, I expect your nodding off now :o so I will leave you to it and good luck for Monday :)

Pete :)
