Im with you on leaving that life of addiction that really wasn't a life. Smoking controlled everything I did. Now Im free. I feel 100 % better already. I talk to myself alot. Beats smoking. I even talk to strangers in stores if I get a crave. I will say "excuse me do you know where the yeast is " and then " You look familar, seems like I've seen you before". Lol by then Im laughing and the craves gone. Keep doing whatever you need to, to not smoke. I do silly stuff at home sometimes to pass a crave. Ive rearranged my sock drawer so many times and my food in my kitchen cabnets. My husband can tell when Ive had a rough crave day, cause he can't find anything.  Keep NOPE-ing. Have a great nonsmoking Friday.

Hi Anthony I am so rooting for you and I absolutely know without a doubt you can do this. You got very far in a quit before and you so can do it again. Put this addiction behind you once and for all there's a beautiful life to be lived without the need for cigarettes or the pain and heartache they cause. You deserve better for yourself. One day at a time. You got this!!!!  Hugs.

Hi Anthony glad you are back, and it gives me motivation that i have made the right decision to quit cause i see that you want to quit, you see that it is not worth it. Im not judging you, i tried to quit for like 3 years after i had relapsed, and it was a tug of war. Keep trying. Allen Carr is good, this site is better i think.

Hi Anthony

im 12 days in just wanted to say hi. I know you can do this and it’s about finding your own coping strategies I think??!? I was determined not to swap cigs for nibbles so now when a craving hits I force myself to run up n down stairs 10 times - totally bonkers I know but I’m trying to train my subconscious into associating cravings with being knackered n hopefully they will die down a bit?  Yep - totally bonkers I know - good job I have an understanding boss ha ha 

let me know how you get in n KEEP GOING!!!

Yes Marge,

That pic says it all, though they haven't  struck yet. LOL  I know they will. I have walked this path before, Boy am I glad I made this decision.

Kind regards

Anthony

15 hours, 20 minutes and 7 seconds. 19 cigarettes not smoked, saving $19.12. 

Congratulations on your three months quit, precious, way to go, go girls.

I am just concentrating on today, one day at a time,

Gosh I'm getting hungry, it's midday here on a Saturday

I still have not been for my walk, the weather is balmy here not much breeze and I should be out.

Kind regards Screwadriver, I wish you all the best on your new life journey,

Anthony

Hi Veronica,

At first congratulations on your three dot weeks soon to be four.

Sorry to hear about your girlfriend in hospital I just pray that the medical staff there are good at their job and that your g/f does not suffer to much.

It's good to hear that you're being a good support, keep posting when the craves come and let us know when the seizures pass.

Kind regards

Anthony
