Hello all. Feeling proud. It's a month that I haven't smoked. The first few days were definitely tough but as you all said, it does get easier. I still have little urges but after a minute or so they pass. I'm still taking Champix & assume that it takes the edge off but on the whole I rarely think about smoking (didn't even get big urges on holiday in Lanzarote so really pleased about that even though my friend smoked in the evenings) One big difference is how much more energy I have & I breathe so much better especially during gym classes. Just wanted to share my little achievement here 👏🏻💪🏼

Congratulations on being a month free. I'm just about 40 mins free lol. You're sounding just where I want to be next month.

Things began to get better when I realized I would remain quit even if things never got any better.

We say here that it is better to be a nonsmoker with the occasional desire to smoke than a smoker with the constant desire to quit. Marciem
Being successful doesn't mean that you'll never GET to smoke again. It means that you'll never HAVE to smoke again.

Well done!! 1st month is the biggest challenge in quitting. Now that's done, strengthen that quit until it's rock solid :)

The process of quitting smoking doesn’t end with the last cigarette. It’s not quitting itself, the real key is staying quit!

Step by step. Hour by hour. When I did my first 3 hours I was so nervous but estatic! The emptiness & itchy feeling is just the nicotine monster demanding its fix. Don't give in. Deep breath & distract yourself. The feeling passes.
