Way to go!  You just made one of the hardest decisions of your life.  To become a non-smoker - to recover from being an addict to tobacco.  The first step is the hardest but shortest.  Start remunerating this - I DO NOT SMOKE, I DO NOT SMOKE.  There are some great articles on this forum to help you build your resistance to the temptation to smoke again.  Don't give in - on this matter - be selfish and think of yourself.  We are with you all the way.  Be happy - Cheers!

Hi Kero!

Do it! Just do it and stay close to here. Everyone is amazing and so supportive and best of all, we all know exactly what you’re going through. We all know that addict voice and junkie thinking oh so well.

Even if you don’t post a lot, stay close. Promise yourself you will send an SOS and wait for 3 replies. We are all over the world and in different time zones but you will get help here!

Click around the articles and breathe. Then deep breathe some more.

So glad you’re here. You are among friends and true support for sure. There is a ton of wisdom here. Just bring yourself. Together we are stronger.

Together is definitely what makes this forum so effective.  It is so important to have people to talk to about your quit and usually you cannot talk to anyone around you for various reasons.  They don't believe you or they don't understand what the issue is.  Yup, this forum is definitely the guiding light through the dark tunnel of smoking cessation.    

Cheers and thank you everyone for being here.

Sad to say, almost all of us do not get social support from family or friends.  

I didn't get any although I did get years of nagging to quit.  When I did, not one of them gave me any good words to continue or any empathy for what I was experiencing.

That's when after 6 months of struggling on my own, I found the forum.  Here I realized that we are all going through the same symptoms and we all knew how to help each other.  That's the benefit of the forum.  EVERYONE ON HERE UNDERSTANDS US.

This was my 5th attempt over the years.

Keep with it and you will see, it does work, if you work it.
