Give up Smoking – Quit Days

Recommended Posts

We've just installed a little plug-in called Quit Days.

The idea is that if you are trying to give up smoking, you can keep track of the number of cigarettes you are smoking and the date that you stopped or reduced and the amount of money that you saved.

It's configured so that only you can see it – so don't worry about this being public.

It will be very nice if people who wanted to were able to show others how they are managing in their fight to give up smoking. I'm not sure if it's possible to configure the plug-in in that way at the moment. It seems to be that either everybody's quit days are published – or they simply remain private to each individual.

I figured that it will be more prudent to keep it private.

If we can find a way to allow individuals to decide whether or not to publish their Quit Days then we will change the configuration and let you know on this thread.

I stopped almost a month ago after years of nicotine addiction. 

The biggest incentive was that someone told me that I didn't choose to be a smoker, but smart people made smoking attractive so they could make a profit.

OnceI was hooked on nicotine, they were quids in and i was a slave.

So lets fight the system and quit!

I remember having my first cigarette when I was 8 years old - dad smoked 100 Senior Service per day back then, so the odd one going missing was never noticed, although he stopped just prior to having a stroke. The local shop used to sell 2 Woodbines for 6d. Eventually starting work allowed me to buy my own so a packet of 20 was easily achievable. Eventually time & events caught up with me and the heart attack was inevitable. That should have told me then I should have stopped but of course I knew better. I only stopped some 10 or 12 years ago and that was "by accident". The OH had to have stents in her legs so thought it a good time for us both to stop and decided to try a hypnotist.

We were both seen separately and OH came out and lit a cigarette up, I came out and drove round with an opened packet on the passenger seat for 3 weeks before throwing them out of the window and have never smoked since. Downside is I've never been away from the doctors surgery since, the smoking appears to have masked all the health problems.

The OH finally stopped some 6 months or so ago and now vapes for Britain. Hate to think how many cigarettes we smoked over the years and more to the point how much it all cost.

This is a really handy little add-on. I'm not a smoker but I think with smoking less and fewer cigarettes each month can help you stop smoking. Just instead of smoking 3 cigs a day, smoke 2.

Closing in at almost 3 months without nicotine or any substitute and believe me, I had stressful days, very stressful!

I still consider myself a smoker (don't want to celebrate too early), but it can be done.
