Thanks. Marge. I'm trying to get to where you are!
I came here back in 2015 and one of the first folks to greet me was a lady with 2 years under her belt. I wanted what she had so much and thought I would never get there. One day at a time I did get there and you can too. The more distance we have between the last cig the better.
'If I have just one I'll be right back where I started and where I started was desperately wishing to be where I am today'
That is a great quote, thanks for sharing it.
For me it's so far, so good, but I do still have the urge sometimes, and that is a good thing to remember.
How do I best direct a friend of mine who wants to quit smoking to this site?
It’s so great to see you back with us on the forum.
We’d be happy to have your friend join us.
Here’s a link to the ‘June 2019 New Ex-Smokers’ thread:
I would suggest that your friend start reading at the beginning of the thread, as it’s full of useful information about quitting and navigating the forum. Reading through, your friend will also be able to see the post of other new quitters who will become your friend’s quit buddies.
I wish your friend the best and, again, it’s wonderful to see you back on the forum.
Have a great day.
I am new here and think I might need support on this journey. I am currently in day four of my quit. I decided to go the Chantix route, in week number 3 of the pills. I lost the physical urge to smoke within 3 days of taking the pills but only just recently lost the mental urge. I am hoping this sticks, been smoking for just short of 40 years and am ready to be done.
