September 2019 Ex-Smokers   Quit Buddies Unite

Started 1/28/19 by Terry (abquitsmking); 87519 views.

Hi Dee,

Back again for another try at quitting, there is one huge major advantage in this quit over all others, my partner has quit also after a hospital scare/visit on Tuesday night so we are dueling banjos so to speak. No cigarettes in the house, no easy temptations lurking around the corner. I want to wish all quitters the utmost in success, remembering patience in the process, this is not an event.

Kind regards

Anthony

One day, 6 hours, 7 minutes and 50 seconds. 26 cigarettes not smoked, saving $28.92. Life saved: 2 hours, 10 minutes.

Day 3. The best part of  this journey is that I already feel I have more self-respect.

 Hi September Ex-Smokers,

We say on this forum that an educated quit is a successful quit for good reason.  The more you know about nicotine addiction and the process of quitting smoking the better your chance of  beating the addiction and making this quit your forever quit.

Keep reading and posting.

I did that.  I used the vape for a while.  Got allergic to the juice.  Switched to VG juice - found out that’s not good for baby.  Switched to no nicotine juice - made me itchy.  Finally gave up everything.  Now I’m free.  You got this! xoxo - whatever it takes!

Oh, and also, I have not been too productive either - just trying to make it thru...

Thanks, Michaela.  I was just reading up on my condition (*I think).  

"However, the re-population of cilia doesn't mean that symptoms will immediately disappear. In fact, it can lead to the development of a new cough in the months following cessation. While distressing, this symptom is perfectly normal. As the cilia start pushing toxins out of the airways, the accumulation can trigger coughing spasms as they are expelled from the lungs. In most cases, the coughing will start to subside by the end of the second or third month."

Maybe I have "new cough"?  I have been coughing up phlegm.

Way to go, Alex !  You had a special day with your daughter, pampered yourself and achieved victory another day.  A win-win day even being under the weather. wink

Meredith, 

   No ridicule here, this is a safe zone.  All of us have gone through different ways of trying to quit.  You name it,  I have tried it.  I am a big believer in whatever works for you.  If I thought sticking carrots in my ears would help, I would try it.  Now I am down to just trying little old me.  So far I am standing up to the challenge, I don't know about tomorrow.  Just stay on board, stay with us and we will all try to come out the other side.  As far as getting nothing done, if I go any slower, I will be going backwards.relieved
