First Day!

Well today is the day for never smoking again! I think I first started as a teenager and the only time I stopped was when I had my daughter. For me it's a habit at night I don't smoke through the day and have maybe 2-3 at night! Health is my number 1 reason for stopping! I love the support of a forum so I thought I'd come on and say hi☺️

2-3 at night can so easily turn into 20 odd a day! You've done well to keep the number so low, and even better to have decided to push them out of your life altogether. Wishing you all the best on breaking free. : )

Morning all,

3 Weeks smokefree, I certainly had a rough weekend but i'm thankfully feeling much better now, I think the weekends were my chill out time, and the times I smoked the most, I know that it gets better over time so i'm just pushing through ODAAT:)

On with week 4 :)

NOPE

Woohoo. Went out for a jog earlier. Amazing how you can sniff out people smoking from what seems like hundred of meters away. Just smelling it made me feel like i was somewhat breaking the commitment with second hand smoke. I feel good :-)

Profile image Mumof216 hours ago

Well I've taken the first step

Well I've finally done it. After almost 15 years of
Smoking I think I'm ready to give it a serious go. I'm not sure how I will go but I can only try. I'm feeling really anxious about quitting but I need to put my son, health and wallet first!!!!

Profile image Mumof216 hours ago

You've taken the first step so good on you. When times get tough remember your goals. You can do this we are all here to support & can relate.

Profile image Woodsie8 hours ago

It may be daunting at the moment, but it will be the best thing you'll ever do for yourself, your son and wallet. Escaping the smokes is like having a pay rise, so the wallet will be ecstatic and here's your chance to be there for your son for many years to come, and to show hime that some things are worth fighting for. Stay strong.

Profile image smokefreemep4 hours ago

You dont have to be 100 percent ready to quit only 100 percent ready to try

Profile image GTMI3 hours ago

Give it your best shot, it's worth the fight πŸ˜ƒ

Profile image Debbie7050 minutes ago

Well done you! I found changing my routine really helped, for instance i got up and had a coffee and smoke. Instead I got up and went straight to the shower. Remember your Ds

Friggin awesome!!! Still wanna know why my mouth feels awful! And taste still not improved, got worse, if you ask me and gums forever bleeding, even after a lot of care flossing, mouthwash etc etc? So am I the only one with this taking so long or is it a doc/dentist visit for me??
Responses appreciated thanks πŸ™

Profile image GTMI18 hours ago

You might have a gum infection, I know I did a couple of years ago, it would pay to visit a dentist. Well done on your 56days πŸ™‚

Profile image Julia C18 hours ago

I had the bleeding gums when I quit.

If I remember correctly what my dentist told me, it's a symptom of gum disease, because the smoking reduces the bloodflow through the gums it masks the symptoms.

Probably worth seeing your dentist soon

Profile image smokefreemep4 hours ago

Maybe see your dentist. Going great on 56 days
