Hello everyone, I quit smoking 15 days ago and have been reading through this forum, it surely has helped so much in these early days.

I decided to create an account, say hi and also so I can post support to other fellow quitters.

This year I have managed to quit twice, once for 2 months and then another time for 3 months, but fell into the just 1 smoke trap.

Each time I have learnt lessons and feel stronger about this quit than ever before. I really don't want to go through the hell of this withdrawel again and want to make this quit stick. Atm have the brain fog, anxiety and tiredness. I was a pack a day smoker since 16 and an 32 now.

looking forward to going on this quit journey with others here!

Hi nomore,

Welcome. Good for you in quitting again.    The just one smoke trap has tricked  many of us so you are in good company.

Hope you will join the October quitters.  Some terrific folks there . 

A strong support group is one huge key to success.

I also fell to the just one after 3 months so on April 1 I quit intentionally with no help of any sort. I wanted to remember how difficult quitting was so the just one cigarette would not look attractive anymore.  Once I hit over 3 months it got much easier. Now I don’t even think about them 98% of the time.

hints...ice chip flavored water, sucking on sugar free hard candy, rereading all the quotes I amassed from people on here, the daily pledge

Welcome and congrats on 15 days free.  Take it one day at a time, post often and keep reading all you can on this addiction.  Look at only today, not behind you or in front of you, just today. Wishing you all the best.

Hey Marge,

I will definitely join the October quit group, I'll take any support happily.  Thank you so much for the warm welcome and really do believe I've learnt my just 1 lesson the hard way I feel like this year I've been in withdrawel more than feeling the benefits of quitting so an very excited to break that barrier.
