Quit date in T-4 hours

I find myself looking at my pack of cigarettes and wonder to myself - "Should I just 'go out' with one last hoorah and smoke em' all!. I have tried quitting in the past (too many times to count) but this is the first time I am trying a program based system. Who knew I would be writing my first post. Let's give er' a go. Nervous but hopeful.

Quit date in T-4 hours

Wow! youre at 2717 days smoke free! That's amazing! Im on Day 2. Using the patch as well. I find it helps with cravings.

I have been smoking for 25 years. About 6-10 cigarettes a day. Thanks for the positive vibes and suggestion. I have been perusing the chats. I find them helpful and a good way to buy time if I am having a craving ... like right now ;)

Quit date in T-4 hours

Hiya, yes, I am still on my quitting journey. According to my quit meter, I am 17 days in. Wow, time really went by quickly.

I do have a confession, on Wednesday, I had a slip. Two slips to be exact. It's not an excuse but it was an exceptionally stressful day. I knew that I shouldn't and that the craving would go away (just like all the ones previous) but, I did it anyways. Instead of dwelling and falling back into the smoke pit, I reset and am back on track ?

Quitting today

Sometimes all you need is support from strangers - it's odd but also what is needed sometimes. Hope your journey is going good and thanks for sharing your story.

5 Days In

Triggers are challenging. Especially social triggers. I agree that alcohol doesn't help either - it sure lets the "care" meter down.

I personally have avoided social triggers - which wasn't hard because of the COVID lockdown here + most of my friends and family don't smoke. I'm not much of a drinker but if I do, I limit myself to one glass. Other coping strategies that have been working for me are sugar free lollipops, a lot of walks, playing guitar, and a reward jar.

Hope your journey is going well.

Help!!

Chambs, That was a good reflection - reading a lot of articles of smoking. Maybe its a trigger for you? Did the change up avoidance help?

Last week, I watched the movie Green Book and there was A LOT of smoking in that movie. made me want one.
