"Caring For Our Recovery" by John R. Polito

Posted by MarylandQuitter in MarylandQuitter's Blog, 30 October 2016 · 812 views

There are three primary factors associated with relapse: (1) rewriting the law of addiction; (2) an excuse; and (3) a vague memory. It doesn't matter if it happens within two hours, two days, two weeks, two months, two years, or twenty, the factors remain the same and apply to all of us. https://www.quittrai...-by-john-r-p...


Still going strong.. over 6 weeks

Posted by Jayhawk in Jayhawk's Blog, 03 September 2017 · 134 views

It's been awhile since my last post.. A Lot has happened..

I have been smoke and nicotine free for over a month!

I have been in a few social situations involving alcohol and people smoking (both triggers). I have made it through without issue. Big accomplishment for me.

I have been exercising regularly.. breathing is getting much easier.

My mind won...

I've tried quitting so many times. I'm so nervous about my approaching quit date. I'm 55 smoking since I was 17. I'm so tired of feeling crappy. I want to feel good. Any tips or advice I would so welcome ❤️

i feel like i am crawling right now, but soon i will be running!

so far what i am feeling is like i am going to rip my skin off still. i've also been feeling as if i am gritting my teeth throughout the day [even with gum in my mouth] or clinching my jaw together. i am wondering if that is something that is normal, which i'm sure it is.

today the husband...


My Little Trick

Posted by Breathless57 in Breathless57's Blog, 09 June 2017 · 326 views

Today is the fourth day of my quit. I am just trying to keep track of my feeling for the first week. I'm told that the nicotine is now gone from my body and I have reached the peak withdrawal from it. I'm not sure what that means. If the nicotine is completely gone, why would I still be going through nicotine withdrawal which I'm told could last 3 mon...


Stomach issues got me down

Posted by Dee in DeeGal's Blog, 08 June 2017 · 223 views

Haven't written anything in a while about two months ago started having a weird pressure in my lower abdomen. Not like the pains I've had previously when my stomach acted up. Thankfully no where near that pain however this strange constant pressure hasn't let up. So far seen my regular doctor who rushed me off for a CT scan with contrast he was thinking a...


Day 4

Posted by Kellemae in Kelle's Blog, 06 June 2017 · 148 views

8am. So i hope i dont have to start over again because of my slip yeaterday. Y was i thinking so stupidly. More importantly, y was my boyfriend being stupid? He had almost a month of not smoking, and he gave away his quit for somewhere around 3 cigarettes from what i counted, provably more after i left. And he knew i was on my 3rd day, it seemed dicki...


Quitting.. Again!

Posted by flynurse33 in flynurse33's Blog, 04 June 2017 · 229 views

Ok, so I picked up my Chantix today! I'm ready! I quit about 10 years ago, after using patches for about a week! Unfortunately, I started back 3 months shy of 3 years!! So here I go again!

I'm dedicated... problem is -> my boyfriend smokes 2-3 packs a day.. he's had a box of Chantix (that he's not yet used) for a year!!! He also drinks pretty heavil...


Weapons for the fight

Posted by georgen in georgen's Blog, 01 June 2017 · 99 views

I have been reading many excellent posts here, with a view to gathering weapons for the fight.

Here is what I have found so far :

1. Use NOPE one day at a time. Personally, I have never managed to kick any addiction by saying "Never again". One day at a time does it for me. The days turn into weeks, the weeks into months and the months into years. I kno...


So here I am, day 2

Posted by Evelyn in NOPE; Evelyn's Blog, 19 May 2017 · 277 views

Here I am. Day 2 and I'm not gonna blow myself up. Just gonna write where I bump into, what triggers me, what helps.... etc.

I've found a big trigger. Which was already mentioned... Coffee, in my case too much coffee - I get all sparkly and hyper and my cravings become more intense. So - luckily I use instant coffee - I'm gonna be careful how strong I'm...

Early Blessings

Posted by Ramona in No Smokin' U Fool, 04 February 2017 · 281 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 · 481 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 · 277 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 · 512 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 · 275 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.


Day 1

Posted by Bday in My Non-smoking journy, 08 July 2016 · 280 views

Day 1

14:00 --Woke up around that time

14:40 --Took a shower for an hour after waking up

Craves strong today

Posted by IndigoChilde in IndigoChilde's Blog, 06 July 2016 · 425 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...
