One Year Over

On the 11th Jan 2015, I decided I couldn't smoke anymore. For my health, for my finances and for my daughter.

With patches and gum I battled each day for almost 6 months

Do I miss it? Oh Yes. Will I ever smoke again? NO!

I have suffered with depression and anxiety, put on weight and struggled.

But it is so worth it. Keep battling lovely people.

If you are considering quitting DO IT. If you accidently fall off the wagon, then you haven't found the right way to give up, but at least you've had a little break from the demon.

Dont just quit, Become a non smoker.

Keep going, keep coming on this wonderful website.

Remember NOPE

  • Hi Arizona

    It really is so worth it

    It is still difficult but I know I'm in such a better place.

    I see my work colleagues having to roll cigarettes because its cheaper and then getting soaked outside, and for what?

    To top up their nicotine levels.

    I'm not going back there ever.


    And you can do this to!!!



  • Congratulations Jim .. a milestone to be proud of! I keyed in on your words: "But it is so worth it." Thanks for the reminder because frankly, sometimes it seems not.

  • Hi Dunn,

    Yes, no matter how sad miserable or stressed ive been, it is worth it. For my health and family and bank balance. How much have I saved?

  • Thats so nice to read, and your quit has been very much like what I went through,

    I think I'm ahead of you by a month and I'm still a misery arse but I'm putting that down to early 40's !!! Or probably didn't moan so much as I do know as smoking took up my time.

    What are you going to buy as a little treat?!?! πŸ˜€
