Ive had enough...Ive tried cutting down and its working kinda but now Ive made my mind up... Im stopping smoking!!!

This afternoon I was emptying the ashtray pouches Ive got in my bag then I had to go outside for a smoke in the freezing cold and it hit me... it stinks it makes me stink my breath stink my house and car stink its a pain in the bum and the worst bit? I dont even like smoking any more... Im just addicted to it and thats going to stop.

So Ive been on the net and ordered a quit kit off the NHS...

I know its not gonna be easy but with patches and gum Im gonna get there!!!

My healths gonna be better Im not gonna stink and Im gonna have incredible amounts of £££££££s that I would of sent up in smoke... just gotta get it done!!!

Editing this now cause it was 4 weeks ago.

Love this! I have tried smoking, but I never really enoyed it. When I would go out with friends, we would would drink and they would smoke. I wanted to smoke too and they would give me a cig. But after a couple of puffs.....it would make me sick as dog. I wish I could help you not smoke. It's not worth it.

Thankyou :-) Your lucky not to of got into it..... I did when I was 9/10 :O Fcking stupid!!!! But now Im nearly 20 weeks smoke free.. so yay me =D

Keep it up Gemzaayy! I'll keep asking. :D

Quitting smoking is really easy! I know people who do it every month. ;)

Congrats! I've been on chantix for two months and I'm still smoking. I think I'm going to try the ecig. I don't know which one is the best, which website to trust. Keep up the good job!

Good luck :-) Ive got a VIP one if it helps and its pretty good and it came next day :-)

Last night I felt like a huge dork! I'm on Wellbutrin (for depression), chantix, and bought the deluxe ecig starter kit, and yet I was still outside having a real ciggerette! I was able to get my case and batteries in pink and got chocolate, vanilla, and menthol flavors. The chocolate and vanilla are so yummy!! I'm just gonna have to throw away everything that has to do with smoking. I swear they put something addictive in there. Other than nicotine, I mean. Every once in a while I'll get a whiff of pot from my ciggerette. I should have my son go hide my car keys for a few days so I can't go get another pack! Lol!

Good luck :-) I know what you mean.... I sold all my decent lighters and ashtray then binned the rest

Very well done .... should be finding it a bit easier to keep up the good work now! :-)

Thankyou... yeah its getting easier :-)

I was hooked for most of my life, stopped 10 years ago after coughing up blood! That was the scare I needed, but too late as it's left me with fibrosis & acute breathlessness! Good luck, :-)

Aww Im sorry its still affected you..... I think Ive got away with it =D

I read that if you stop before you're 40, you're relatively safe! :-)

Yeah I heard them say on the news last year women can smoke to 30 and be OK

Go for it! Love your sense of humour by the way, :-)

YAY thanks =D

Thankyou.... I used to be like that and yeah I feel loads better for stopping :-) But hey if I can stop you can!!!

Keep going.......I gotta do the same....been so embarassed takin a trip, opening my suitcase and all my clothes smell like smoke....it's a bunch of ****.....I wish you the best....you can do it....think of all the ashes...house smelling, clothes smelling, what it's doing to your lungs, energy.......the whole deally sucks..........You Can do it!

Good luck!!! It really is worth it :-) I never thought I smelled much of smoke.... but the clothes in my wardrobes all smelled and it was only like the last week or so I couldnt smell f ag smoke anywhere in the house :O I feel loads better for quitting and you will too :-)

congratulations to a job well done.

Thankyou.... Im on 6 and a half weeks now... YAY =D

Awesome Gemz! You're amazing! :):)

Aww thankyou :-)

Awsum more power to you

Thankyou :-) 42 days today!!!

Well done I can almost imagine your gentle fragrance instead of the stink of old ash tray. Did you have a smokers voice and cough - is that now beginning to improve?
Keep up the positive mental attitude and it will be most unlikely you will ever want to start again.

Thanks =D Erm I had a croaky voice if I smoked a lot... well I always did but a lot more than usual... and I did cough in the mornings a bit but I wasnt that bad!!! I was way worse after I quit actually lol... still am :O I hope i wont start again but Im just going a day at a time at the mo :-)

That's good, keep it up!

Thankyou :-) 6 weeks tomorrow and I havent even had one puff on a cigarette since... even tho Ive really wanted to!!!!

Oh yeah, it's gonna be tough but hang in there. Six weeks that's great!

Im trying to :-) Its hard but yeah Im doing my best!!!!

Thought I had CONGRATULATED you for giving up. Perhaps it was in another thread.

WELL DONE ******Hugs*******

Sniff, sniff It true folks she no longer smells like a smoked mackeral :)

Aww thankyou ;-)

CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!!!

Thankyou :- ) Im really happy bout it!!!

I'm really happy when a nice woman decides to remain on this Earth for a long time.

Aww thankyou thats lovely :-)

EXCELLANT! Very inspirational!...........thanx! I gotta do the same.....I'm over it......

Thankyou :-) And hell if I can quit you can!!!!

Though I don't believe it will happen but let's put my negative thoughts aside and say well done for thinking this! It is absolutely the best decision ever, forget about everything and just think of your health and what could happen if you continue smoking your crazy way! Hope you will get there and good luck!

It has happened lol... I aint had a f ag for 10 days!!!!

Well done, I bet your ebay habit is getting worse though!!

Thankyou :-) Erm yeah it is!!!! And I flogged off my Playboy lighters and ashtray and bought nicotine patches with the money... seemed sort of ironic lol

That's hysterical, do you realise if you see a smoking cessation officer they can give you patches on prescription??????

I didnt know that :-/ Damn!!! Well thanks really cause Ive got 4 weeks of patches and its a 10 week course soooo I'll save a load :D

lol Idk why I thought you just wrote the story, I didn't check the date! O.o I am happy you have quit for 10 days so far, that's not easy and surely means you can do it. Keep it up! =)

lol no worries :-) I will do it... its not easy and some times (like now actually) Id really love one BUT I wont...no way :D And thankyou :-)

28 days later and I still aint smoked :D

I take back my comment my dear and I am happy for you! <3

Thankyou =D

Hey Good for you! How's it going?

Thankyou :-) Its going really well thanks!!!

Good for you

Thankyou :-)

Hey, hey! Well I'm glad you're no longer gonna be stinker ... and your bum's not gonna be in pain :P

Im defo not... YAY!!! Thats why Im stopping right now actually ;O And LOL!

Thanks for chronicling your journey to cigarette freedom though ... it's actually quite a fun and interesting read :)

Or rambling drunky angry ranting? I dunno lol I wasnt exactly sober when I wrote that... Im glad you like it tho :-)

Haha! You're actually quite coherent when you're drunk ... perhaps you should try that more often? O_o ... lol, kidding ... :P

Oi! LOL!!! Erm its practice :-P you cant of seen my drunk texts anyway lol...

Ahhh so you're close to perfecting it ... got it ;) ... I think one of your drunk texts accidentally got to me though ... what's this about meeting you up in an oak tree with whipped cream and plastic wrap?!?!? O_O

*giggles* Ooohhhh you got that message then? I wondered who it was :-P

I was talking about sitting up in a tree to watch the sunrise and have something to eat that cake you baked and take home any leftovers ... What were YOU thinking we'd be doing with whipped cream and saran wrap!?!? O_o I think all those cigarettes have made your mind naughty! ... :P

LOL!!! *blushes* Oooo does this mean Im gonna be like an angel now? I do make nice cakes btw :-D

Whoo! Do you have a smoking cessation worker in your area? It up's the success rate if you see someone regularly. Good luck, I know you can do this!

Thanks :-) Ive ordered one of the NHS kits... its supposed to be good and it helped one of my friends back in March!!! And yeah there is one of them. Ive actually binned my real cigs and Im using my electric one now... scarey but good lol

I've got it all crossed for you!

Thanks :-) I haven't had a real cigarette in 1 and a half days now and I actually feel much better than I thought!!! Ive been feeling high most of the day :O Id of done this sooner if I knew lol

LMAO! It has occurred to me that you maybe taking in more nicotine than usual, as you usually go out side to smoke you are probably using the e ciggy more than you would normally smoke, this may well explain why you are high!

LOL! Um i was worried I might do that sooo Ive been really careful not to... Ive used it before and did suck on it like a dummy :O soooo Ive rationed myself... the high things just weird... more oxygen getting to my brain maybe? Til like 2 weeks ago I was smoking nearly 40 a day so it might be it?

Hmm, your carbon monoxide levels should be back to normal by now I guess it could be that, most people don't feel high after giving up, you is well lucky!

Its defo weird... I didnt feel like this last time I stopped!!! Im not gonna complain tho... Im doing better than my partner and he didnt smoke nearly as much as me!!!
