For the welcome, looks like I am the first to post in the December group, I have just made my Vow not to smoke anymore, Have finished reading Allen Carr's book 'Easyway To Stop Smoking', along with my reading on this site. Thank you for the helpful information. I have been a smoker for 40 odd years now and can't believe I've had my blinkers on to the harmful effects of smoking. Trust that others will join me in kicking nicotine out of their life.
Congratulations on your decision to quit smoking. Quitting isn’t the easiest thing to do but it is doable and it’s so worth it, more importantly, YOU are worth it. Please stay close to the forum, continue to read, post, join in, and reach out anytime. Stay in the moment and take it day by day, hour by hour, or minute by minute if necessary. You can do this and we’ll all be here cheering you on. I’m happy you’re here with us and I look forward to seeing you around the forum.
Best wishes for your success.
So happy you have joined the forum. I also have smoked 40 years. I have attempted to quit a few times, however I was unsuccessful as I went back to smoking. I have found education, support and inspiration here. I also read Allen Carr and reference his book. This is a process, so if you need to vent, ask questions, send out help or celebrate a milestone, post it and someone will read. NOPE - not one puff ever.
