Hi Cas55 Well done for your decision to quit👏

Welcome to Quit Support.💙

It’s never easy to quit but it’s easier with a little support.💪

Please read the pinned posts,📌 under "How to Quit" You will find the posts to the right or at the bottom of your screen depending which device you are using.

Everyone is different so one method works for one person and not so well for another.

I suggest you write a list of all your reasons for quitting and put it on the fridge so you often see it.

May I suggest you drink plenty of water💧💦 to flush out the toxins and keep yourself hydrated.

If you feel you need any more help please don’t hesitate to ask. There is always someone here.

May I remind you not to post any personal information.

Please let us know when you begin your quit so that we can assign you a winners' badge and update our database.

Good luck with your quit.🍀🚭xx

I smoked my last cigarette on the 1st Sept 19.... the first few weeks were tough going at times but as each day passes I feel so much better. Smoking no longer dominates my life, I have so much 'spare' time which is no longer being spent getting cold and wet outside and I am feeling positive.

To help I have used the niquitin lozenges and they have been fantastic at taking the edge off the cravings.

Good luck... you can do this :)

I quit 16 months ago. I smoked for 38 years. I never imagined myself a non-smoker, thought I would smoke till my grave. It is doable. Everyone will tell you take one day at a time, which sounds trite but is a key to success. My other key was I never let myself imagine “just one” as it is a fantasy, at least for me. One puff leads to one packet leads to one more year of smoking. And I refused to feel deprived. Never “I have to quit” but “I get to quit” “I get to learn new ways without smoking”, “I get to grow as a person”, etc. I wish you the best. Folks here are very helpful.

Hi Cas55

I quit cold turkey and had smoked 20-30 a day for 38 years until then. For me, I was ready mentally & just wanted it over and done as quickly as possible. It was a hard road at some points, I won’t lie about it. But if you want it, freedom from them CAN be yours. Whichever way you decide to quit (cold turkey or with patches or gums or inhalators, etc.) come on here and people will support you with good advice every step of the way.
