Welcome New Ex-Smokers
Congratulations on taking that all important first step with cessation - putting that last cigarette out and getting started.
Chances are you don't feel 'ready' to quit and you're experiencing a mixture of sadness, loss, anger and fear, wondering how on earth you're going to make it through the next few hours, let alone the next few days, smoke-free.
You have found the best quit aid on the planet - this forum community.
The folks here know what you're going through because we've all been through it ourselves. We are committed to supporting you every step of the way, so park yourself in front of your computer and read everything you can on this forum board, and elsewhere on the site and internet.
Below are a few articles to get you started:
Today is Quit Day for me. It's been hard to quit and many years of failed attempts to quit. I wanted to do something new and different. To join the support group for community and like minded individuals.
I'm exciting to see who is joining us this month as well ??
Quit Date Dec 1 2017
Hi Miss Mo,
Welcome, the education and support this forum offers made that difference for me. I hope it will for you too. Settle in and check out the articles especially that first one, 'After the last Cigarette". You are the first quit buddy to join the group. I am sure you will have company soon. In the meantime read as much as you can about nicotine addiction. It is key to beating it. You can do this!
Miss Mo You have come to the right place.Congratulations on this being your time to quit.Many many times I stopped and when I started oi pick it up again and joined here.I had been a couple of weeks and then remembered this place.
The forum is your special support place .Everyone here will help f they can and you can come here often and read and post as much as you feel like.Its sort of like entering rehab for smokers but in your own home.The more you immerse yourself in the community of Quitters the more likely you will be .
As you go through the first days but by bit it will be hard but you can make it
It is such a struggle and not able to stay smoke free and relapse everytime. I just recently started quit journaling.
For me it's more than a nicotine addiction but something I co-depend through my highs and lows. To the habit of smoking everywhere I stop. Doesn't help with Holidays.
I caved again and bought a pack and lighter while out shopping for Xmas ??.
Grateful for the support and community to keep working on being smoke free.
Hi there Miss Mo,
I hope you are getting more comfortable here. it can be a little confusing in the beginning, but you will get the hang of it. The first few weeks can be a challenge. Check out this list of tips one of our Mods put together. It helped me a bunch.
Here's a wonderful list ModJenn put together that should come in handy.
This is perfect and just what I needed! Thank you so much!
Hi MissMo3 and welcome to this wonderful forum.
What is so great is that all the people here from around the world are all going through the same thing you are - overcoming their addiction to nicotine. It is not easy but is really worth the effort. Read as much as you can and post to anyone you wish to. We are all here to support each other.
Hope you have a good smoke free night....sue quit 3/17/2016
