Thinking

Posted by Dee in DeeGal's Blog, 11 April 2017 · 55 views

The weather is finally getting nice it so strange trying to stay in the mind set of being a non-smoker. The warm weather makes the urge greater. Sat I spent the day exhausting myself with the thought that physical exhaustion would help. But it is strange the smokes I still miss the most are the ones when I have physically exhausted myself with exercise./a...

Early Blessings

Posted by Ramona in No Smokin' U Fool, 04 February 2017 · 148 views

After just a week! The early (and many) blessings:

Achieving that truly full breath at last (phew, my lungs still work)
Appetite is back and food tastes good
I feel more confident
Not afraid of tomorrow's 1.5 hour drive and winter hike with 3 never-smokers
Don't have to worry how badly I smell during my therapy group
Money not spent on butts
I feel mo...

Sazerac's Third Annual Soiree

Posted by Sazerac in Sazerac, 23 October 2016 · 274 views



Three years ago, I quit smoking on a whim which quickly grew into a personal challenge to myself.
A trip out West, where cigarette smoking made you an instant pariah,
an aeroplane coughing fit and a horrible cold precipitated this life changing decision.
I quit Cold Turkey not wanting to mess about with quacks...

Love my new Life

Posted by doingitthistime in doingitthistime's Blog, 22 September 2016 · 189 views

Had a great day, got so much done in the garden, a lot more than I used to and feel great.

Never realized how out of breath I used to get, it just became the normal for me I think.

Loving all the energy, feeling and overall happiness that I am feeling now that I have quit.

Planning new projects to do now that we can afford them as I am no longer just b...

The continuation of the journey

Posted by Marti in Marti's Blog, 14 September 2016 · 225 views

It's all about choice.
We can create the drama, or not. Create the fear, or not.
It really is very simple. As simple as stepping into the life we want and not being chained to the past.
The rains may fall and the droughts may happen but we simply move forward step by step when it feels too hard to run.
Accept support when it is offered, accept gratitude f...

day 5

Posted by peaceanjel in peaceanjel's Blog, 14 July 2016 · 175 views

Evenings are unbearably hard! I don't know how else to find completion with the day. there's a raving psychopath inside my head and I almost believe the things she says... Like I will never feel completely satisfied again. And I feel I'm being punished when I know that actually the opposite is true.

Craves strong today

Posted by IndigoChilde in IndigoChilde's Blog, 06 July 2016 · 238 views

Day 18, third day on the step 2 patch. I'm craving bad today. I don't know what it is. But I'm home alone and don't know what to do. I'm deep breathing right now, watching Scrubs, and drinking ice water. I went for a walk and felt peaceful during it, with no cravings, but as soon as I got home I got anxious. I figure writing all this down is a good thing...

Friday was to be my quit day... I was breezing along doing fairly well that day but had a bump in the road and I just imploded. Traumatic events that happen that early was just too much for me. On Saturday morning I had to put my beloved boxer dog Baxter down after only a couple days of illness so I had no time to even consider such a horrific outcome....

The Evolution of Cigarettes in One Big Puff

Posted by muench in Muench's Blog, 16 December 2015 · 397 views

Hello everyone,

This is my very first blog post so I wanted to put a little extra effort into it.
A few weeks ago, I came across this cool timeline that looks at the the percentage of American adults who smoked through the decades between the 40s and now.
It also highlights specific social and political events that took place in our history that contribu...

Camping Trip

Posted by Donotwannasmoke in Donotwannasmoke's Blog, 05 August 2015 · 606 views

Hello campers,

I more than survived my camping weekend away, it was more relaxing than I ever imagined. There were 'breaks' in the bar during bingo for those that needed it, I happily kept the children entertained whilst others took their 'break', infact, I spent every minute with them, no hiding behind the tent (how sad!), no extra long toilet trips, n...

Posted by bethbeynon in Beth B's Blog, 19 July 2015 · 506 views

I'll be 50 next year. i don't want to think about how many dreams I couldn't afford over the years, while I continued to buy cigerettes.

It's so suductive. It's only a few dollars at a time. I'm always going to quit tomorrow, next week, soon.

Enough! I am currently doing a nutritional program where I cannot enjoy even a glass of wine - and wine and...

No One Ever Said It Would Be Easy

Posted by larklibby in NOPE, 10 July 2015 · 681 views

A short blog, a few words, I just want to pen a quick thought.

The past week I have hit a low spot in my quit. I'm not really sure what has triggered it, have I lowered my guard? I don't know. I have just past my 4 month quit mark and all of a sudden i'm getting waves of urges to smoke.

The one thing that has kept my resilience, stubbornness and downrig...

Being a newbie.

Posted by K. Lou in flokatia's Blog, 26 June 2015 · 457 views

I always thought I had an addictive personality. When I was little I was addicted to sucking my thumb whenever I could even at school. My addiction led to three years of braces and a lot of discomfort, but I stopped sucking my thumb and got really straight teeth at the end.I replaced that addiction with another one, bitting my nails. My mum took take of t...

So it begins!

I am finally ready to quit smoking and face this thing head on! After nearly twenty years of being a slave to cigarettes, I'm going to do what ever it takes to free myself from these damn things!

I know that many people have tried different approached to becoming smoke-free.

Some have been successful with nicotene gum and patches.
