I'm a smoker of 14 years and I just smoked my last cigarette @8:00 this morning. I've had a MILLION failed attempts but today I feel different and I'm ready to move on with my life. I can be very weak-minded so I decided to join this group for support.
Hi there sds026,
Updated November 19, 2015. You may feel like you're on a roller coaster during the first couple of weeks of smoking cessation. Whether you use a quit aid of some sort or go cold turkey, you're going to feel some discomforts due to nicotine withdrawal.
I can relate to what you are saying. I've probably smoked at least 30 years and have had numerous quits. In recent years I just couldn't stay quit for more than a few days and really tried to make it without any help or support. On day 18 here of a smoke free 2020 and while there have been some rough moments, turning to this site for information and support has really helped this one stick (hopefully forever). Use the resources and network here whenever you feel those craves. They will come but you can get through them!
