Hi All

 

I am giving up smoking this Friday, cause mum passed away last week due to smoking at the young age of 53, and I dont want to. It is a joint effort/competition between me, 2 sister in laws and two brothers on who can do it and last the longest. I have picked Friday cause its the funeral tomorrow and I will have a hangover after it, and cant smoke when hungover anyway.

 

Got some patches in preperation already for Friday, but I know I am gonna need lots of support from you guys - please!!!!

 

So I will be here on a regular basis with an update and to check out how you are all doing.

 

Thanks for reading

Hi middelaged.

 

I am a failed non smoker and still going to keep trying.

 

 

Sometimes it's that kind of kick you need ( sorry for your loss)

 

 

I'll be retrying with patches again on Monday so good luck

Ok, so I stopped along with the rest of the family members on Friday 3.9.10. I have not used any NRT and have not had a cig, HOORAY!!!!!! , but the rest of the family only lasted until Saturday which of course means I win the bet.

In the last few days I have cried, slept very badly, been so irritated I threw a coat hanger at my hubby (he doesnt care, he is just glad I am not smoking).

I am really gonna keep trying hard to keep going!!!

Good luck to everyone trying to give up!!!!!

Well done middleaged, i gave up in 1979 it was hard but i did it and have never smoked again my lungs are clean, it is hard and you will have bad days when you think "oh ive had enoguh im gonna start again" but if you do then you will only let yourself down no one else, as you get older your lungs dont work so well but smoking will make it worse, and it wont do your heart any good either keep it going think of all the money you will save, put it away in a box and see just how much you will have to buy yourself a new outfit or something else keep going dont give up

Well I have done 3 full weeks, very very proud of myself. Ordered a Kindle of Amazon to treat myself with the money I have saved - saving money on perfume cause I smell better. I can walk the dogs for longer without getting out of breathe, this is good cause I am eating more.

 

I just cant explain how fantastic and proud of myself I feel having done it for this short space of time.

Ive ben smoking for the best patr of 40 years. Been to the docs on various occasions, had chest x rays etc and always been told that am a non smoker and had the lungs and respiratory system of someone of 30. A few quacks have all told me that. So whilst still receiving this good news at 53 years old, I was still intent on packing it in. I found this product called www.clearsmoke.co.uk which is an e-cigarette with a nicotine cartridge which is the same amount as 20 fags. Ive ben using this for 3 days, and just need a drag when the addition calls. Its just like a real fag but withount the 400 or so chemicals that we all have been drawing into our bodies. The end of the fag glows when you drag it, it produces an imitation smoke which is water vapour. Im convinced that I will not retrun to the fags. It is the perfect compromise between going cold turkey and still getting the nictine buzz. The cartrdiges come in three strengths high medium low, so you can "ween" yourself accordingly. I have one packet of real fags still in sellophane wrapper and I look at these everytime I get out my clearsmoke box and say to the fags "I dont need you" Believe me they do work, but without the danger of real fags.

 

Im convinced that I can call myself a "non-smoker" of tobacco rpoducts, but I must confess that I will be on this for a while, but have vowed never to touch another fag again in my life. I hope that this short story can be an inspiration to other hard core somkers like me.

that sounds really good i have seen people with them, good on you for giving up, i as a past smoker found it hard but i wanted to give up so much i stuck to it, it wasnt easy, nicotine is a drug and like anything your addicted to its very hard to give it up, so well done to you all and keep going i think this page is helping many people its become a support group and thats what you all need is support your not on your own, well done again,xx

Try Clearsmoke. I stopped smoking instantly and been on these for a week now. Definately the best stop smoking product Ive ever tried. After 3 days I felt nso much better after the CO and chemicals had left the body. OK, with these you are still nicotine dependant, but without the dangers. For 7.95 trial offer then 23.00 per month, until you stop, its much cheaper than fags. I now know that I will never touch another fag in my life, Im 100% sure of that.
