Good luck @Jimbob! It isn’t easy, both my parents used to smoke so I’ve seen how hard it can be. However, should you fall of the wagon, get up and try again. Research has shown it takes on average 12 attempts before being successful.

I downloaded a budgeting app and was shocked how much of my income was going on cigs

Good luck though

My dad has had two heart attacks and a stroke. Won’t quit smoking. He has a pacemaker

I’m showing good progress on my quit… I’m past the 48 hour mark, and cold turkey is my best approach historically, to add my two cents.

Oxygen tanks. Part of a lung. Cancer is expensive.

I used to smoke a pack a day for 8 years. I stopped smoking 3 years ago. Best thing I’ve done. It was dificult. I tried many times. Last time I used nicotine patches and I had success.

Good luck! You can do it!

Yeah, well I’ve been trying to quit smoking for years but felt like my free will isn’t quiet there, because of my Sz. I know I can quit though, so I’m gonna post here and chat about it now on.

I’m past the ‘drowsy’ stage and into the ‘cranky’ stage which is tough terrain!

I’ve tried and failed so many times… it’s serious stuff. Especially since the people around you get their hopes up.
