hi to all the newbies
just wnated to pop in and give my support to you all, im nearly 8 months smoke free, i smoked for 30 years and was a heavy smoker, it ruled my life and in the end thats what i hated about it, it took me two years to get to the point where i really wanted to stop, i became quite sick for a while after giving up but looking back i now know i was suffering from severe panic attacks, i say this cos if you find this or something similar happens to you, dont let it stop you giving up, no matter what you face it will go away and being smoke free, well its amazing, its worth the fith and the battle, well done to you all and keep it up

found out i got asparatime posiioning from sugarfree gum so please people dont use it instead of smoking, better to gain weight that what ive been through it was worse than giving up smoking!! im still not well, but im still a non smoker
i think i now know my problem
heya, if any had read my past threads where i was sounding bad its cos i was, but i might have found the answer i was chewing way way too much sugarfree gum and i think i kinda posioned my system, very scarey, i will be back after the weekend to let you knwo how i am, as i would hate anyone to go through what ive been through, but i havent had a smoke!! nearly two months for me after being a very heavy smoker of 31 years and i had an xray wed. my lungs are all good !!!!
not an easy start to the day
i could so smoke a ciggie right now!!! but i know if i have one i will be a full on smoker again and i just cant do that, but after 6 weeks i was kind of hoping these bad days would be gone, so if anyone is out there thats at 3 months, please cum in and tell me how good its gonna get LOL i need to hear that today!!
it seems i cant take the gum, it looks like i might have thyriod problems so am off the gum too, im chewing normal gum like crazy and the odd lollipop, i seem to have this need to keep my mouth busy, i migth try going back to my hypno tapes and see if they help, ive come to far to go back!
