  • Well done dizzydonna, just take one day at a time, stay close to this site and shout out if you need help, you can do it. We all know what you are going through. I have tried several times, but never got past 3 weeks. Determination is the key, and you got it. I had an nhs calender which showed the benefits of each day you haven't smoked. I also enjoyed tearing each day off. It got me through the first 4 weeks, and the support from these lovely people . Stay strong xx

  • didnt know there was an anxiety site but if you have that under control then it will be a smoother ride for you. I tried once made it 3 months, then a physical torment took me back but I will try again and I did cut down alot and I hold more than I smoke. I tried e-cigs and they burnt my lower lip maybe I wasnt using it properly there are no directions lol. Keep doing your best that is all anyone can ask of you.

  • Hey Ddona,


    Ya anxiety can be so crippling ....But you made a life changing decision to give up cigarettes👍🏻👏👏👏👏👏 I had an emotional crutch on them ... Mine was more depression after my soulmate passed away tragically... I lost hope and gave up on myself ... Thank God for this site... Keep your reason close why you need to stop... I keep the site real close !! xxxx

  • Its been a big struggle. Emotions was all over the place, moods swings have been vile. Im refusing to give in, im not giving in no way. Ive decided to vaper more, im on a 12 nicotine. Ive been told i need an 18 but im staying on the 12. I dont want to stay on the vaper for ages but rather the go totally cold turkey im on vaper. Its very hard but like i say im not giving in.

    Thank you all for your comments/advice i will for sure look at the pinned posts xx

  • Hi Dona! I am sure this time it will be easier! Because this time you have this group's support. They have given me the strength to last 1 week without smoking. I am sure you will benefit too. I wish you all the best in this healthy decision! Just remember! Not 1 puff!

  • Hi Dona,

    Just take it one day at a time and keep yourself busy. The first week will be the hardest and then it gets better.
