March 2019 Ex-Smokers    Quit Buddies Unite

Started 1/28/19 by Terry (abquitsmking); 235357 views.

Thanks Marge,

'If I have just one I'll be right back where I started and where I started was desperately wishing I could be where I am today'

I will remember this when and if the cravings hit, so far so good though I have just woke up, a few hours under my belt before I go for my walk.

8 hours, 0 minutes and 14 seconds. 10 cigarettes not smoked, saving $9.98. 

Kind regards


Thanks for the encouragement Paula,

Sounds like your doing all the right stuff, congratulations on your two month anniversary. I've smoked for about 40 years, I knew all along it was no good for me, yet I persisted such is the nature of the beast, to crack that relationship with cigs You have to stand firm in your decision not to smoke, (I'm talking to myself here) and ignore that inner voice that says "just one". I now keep relatively busy, keep my mind occupied is half the battle. Yippee i'm a non smoker, lets celebrate this fact, leave the old life behind, start afresh with the new.

Kind regards


Quit 1st March 2019

Thanks Screwadriver,

Yes thanks for the welcome back, I have to earn my stripes now starting from scratch but "from little things big things grow", line from a Paul Kelly song. How are you and how is your quit going?

Kind regards

Hi Anthony,

Not 'if the cravings hit' because you know they will.  You can do this.

I just celebrated my 3rd month quit and am feeling real good month 3 I found to be a breeze. Month 2 I had some motivation issues and sleeping way too long until I started excercising then just good things seemed to happen. 

A friend happened to see me post a message and asked about the stars I had put as my signiture then he told me to go with him to see some gals who were celibrating there 2nd month quit. Sure enough they were so happy being 2 months quit they were dancing on stage showing off the 2 stars.....

Good to have back!

Hi Anthony

Welcome to this gorgious forume. I am quite new my self, but I have actually managed to day 24 today. It is a true roller coaster and these two days has been the worst for me. But I am so thankful that I have this forume. The last 24 hours I have been at the hospital with my girlfriend and it has been so scary all of it. And even when I have hold her in my arms while she had had seizures for hours and hours  - I have had the phone in the other hand and posted here. I need to be here. And I hope you will stay here during your good and bad days tulip

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.
