Just joined this site /group in the hope it will help me to finally stop smoking permanently. Currently preparing myself for this

and have already cut down a lot. I'm not using any NRT but cannot go CT - so I'm gradually cutting down and facing/dealing with 'triggers' everyday. 

I feel I can do this and I'm already well on my way to succeeding. The day is coming when I will finally be able

to say - "I Quit Em My Way" biggrin

      Well Done to you on your upcoming second year of freedom from the old nico. I believe it doesn't matter how we get there, as long as we

      do, and we stay there. smile

    well done. I gave up in January with the help of hypnotherapy after 50 years of smoking. It helps if you have people around you to give you a pat on the back now and then. Good luck. Hope all goes well.

      Hi Beaubic, Thank You for your reply and good wishes biggrin

      I don't really have many people around me offline, but online

      support can be just as good - maybe even better as it is more

      easily available at any time you need it. ( Phoning a friend at

      3 AM is not really an option lol )

      Congratulations and Well Done on your 8 month quit biggrin

    Hi, I gave up easily over a year ago with the aid of Champix tablets. Worth thinking about....loads of info on the internet about them. Good luck!

      Hi Debbie, Thank You for your reply and good wishes biggrin

      I have read quite a lot of reports on Champix and it's 

      success rate. Did you have the strange dreams I've 

      read about too ? I know some people said they actually 

      'reduced' the Champix dose and that helped in stopping

      the dreams. 

      Congratulations and Well Done on your year + quit biggrin

      Hi, yes, really vivid dreams. I refuced the dose to help the nausea and headaches that kicked in on week 3. But the side effects were worth it. I thank my lucky starts every day! Good luck whatever you chose to do.
