Welcome dear though is not easy but at the end of the tunnel there is always light

Hi nkineza

I went cold turkey, I stopped drinking coffee for a while as I associated that with smoking, went out walking "a lot" but after 3 months things seem to calm down, iv been a non smoker now for 4 years so keep it up, I also had a lot of support from the Quit Support community xx

Hi I quit 4 weeks ago before that I cut down on my smoking a couple a day then 4 weeks ago I stopped completely I do wear a patch

but only at work I read at break time.

I noticed the other day how bad people who smoke smell I thought yuck I am glad I don't smell like that anymore, also I feel my head is a lot clearer & I am a lot happier good luck to all going cold turkey , it's worth it in the end no matter how you get there

21 days cold turkey and still have the odd craving. But I feel better can breath again with out having a sore throat. Food tastes better and have an appetite again.

Wish you all well.

Have you tried the patches I get mine from Super Drugs they wereΒ£20.00 for 2 boxes each box last's a week not bad considering the cost of those cough stick's (as I call them now).
