  1. I'm here because I'm on day 2 of my attempt at quitting smoking and I'm gasping for a cigarette!
    I've been a fairly heavy smoker for the past 12 years. 2 days ago, after a cigarette, I genuinely thought I was having a heart attack. I'm 27 years old. It was the scariest experience of my life. Fingers crossed, this was enough to stop me picking up a cigarette, ever again.
    I always thought 'Ahh, these things will never happen to me, I enjoy smoking'. I wish I listened to the 'stupid adults' when I was a teen.

  2. Been smoking for 7 years. Tried everything to quit but failed. Because craving and addiction were still there. Then I came across Quitsure app which claimed to remove my cravings. And it worked. Now I don't smoke because I no longer get cravings at all. Has anyone used the same app to quit smoking?

  3. Anyone looking for someone to go through quitting with? I am looking for people to create a group with,a group where we will communicate our fears and the feelings that comes when trying to quit, we can encourage each other on the group to keep pushing, I'm really ready to quit but it's just so hard.

  4. I'm really pissed of clearly there are huge advantages for some people who smoke . Since quitting I've put on 59kgs and I find it incredibly hard to get out of bed in the morning or get motivated to do a task.

    I'd recommend anyone who has the same problems with motivation get tested for ADHD or add as it is likely that you do need stimulants unfortunately I can't tolerate them but many people can.

    Good luck

  5. It's so hard to quit. They always talk about the nicotine only. But it is way more then just the nicotine in the cigarette or tobacco. I tried e smoker with nicotine and I still crave for real tobacco this is the proof that the tobacco now days is full with edictive stuff. Wich makes it even harder to quit. The price's go out the roof now. They so called care about our health. Why not make it illegal if you care so much for our health. The sad thing is the most of the majority of smokers are low educated and have little money. Yet it is those people they take the money from. Unhealthy food is cheap and booze aswel. What about all these fat people eating themself to death. But no the smokers pay the price only.

  6. i smoked for 7 years, i'm 11 months nictone clean and forever 🤘, everything changed like My sleep routine, i feel much X1000 better, even i was having short of breath all the time, now i don't get that no more. just ask yourself why are you smoking? is it because your loved ones died or left? Smoking will not bring them back!, is it because your depressed? smoking will not fix it!, is it fun smoking it? trust me working out and jogging is X1000 fun than smoking, don't let that shit control you. btw this is my first attempt of quiting and the last one. life is better with out ciggarets

  7. Already 4 weeks cigarettes free
    I have used electric cigarette for quitting
    1st week 18 mg nicotine capsules
    2nd week 12 mg nicotine capsules
    3rd week 9 mg
    4th week 2.5 mg nicotine capsules mixing with 0 mg nicotine capsules
    Now week 5 only 0 mg nicotine capsules
    Next week ( 6th ) I am going to even stop electric cigarette
    I think this is the best way for quitting
    Because I have smoked for 16 years and tried many times to quit but never made it more than 2 days
    But now I am feeling great better than what I have expected.

  8. Good luck for autonomic discovery how to whip their institutionalized demonic gluttony ingredient labels, inappropriately sexual friendless promiscuity, Etcetera Crony Captivations.

    A rare few professionals examined me close enough to realise my answers hid within me + around me even fractionally among WHO. I. stubbornly dug discovering such authoritative competitive religiosities preferred me to fail. God gave me my way for fashion fad masks and social distancing would be great advantage at near future Theopolis ARCHITECTURES. Guess what I got for requesting God for appropriate things? I got the benefit of my own anti-bodies! All your licensed professionals and non- professional sources should be abandoned if not heeding what you can and cannot tolerate. I cannot tolerate anymore of their covid batshit ripoff religiosities.

    I like bicycling for artistic scenery regardless their aesthetics: I do not like you’re sewer gassed repugnant rat race traps. Simply because Ienjoy breathing MY kind of air, and abstain from N*gerette/N*factory juice influences especially their upper tier financial institution debt masters except extreme resorts, simply because of that they and their religiosities redacted my comment for copy-$tealing.

    If doing better weren’t more fun , why would I incorporate Jesus angel hood equal partnership? No way I get a favour out of these fecal suckers except to slick it out of them. I do not simpatico nor empathise for WHO nor any of their religiosities.

    Thank you! Thank you ladies & gentleman! Thank you very much. A rock bobalubock a bop bamboo!

  9. Michael More welcoming interaciality blending like idiocracy also say in covid report cigarette addiction drop in sharp decline, and observations are ongoing. Being capable of learning from the clueless enemies you bless and pray for is important when segregating by extra purposed selections for how you adhoc your unity-strenthener group however often/seldom and why pivoting arrangements . Maybe all the religions’ recipes fail you just like they did me, well that only indicates systematic inflexible society failure when you doing your best. I am not joking about nazi-covert organisations who claim your discoveries and philosophise you are insignificant recipient-only for their status minded importances. But you are equally important or more so than Universe or bibles/reference books governments even United Nations CREATED FOR YOU AND NOT YOU CREATED FOR THEM. Yes get used to it Universe status celebrity you people yeah you people!

    paragraph#2) Points concluded for my carefree abstinence like Caesarean birth compared to the ripping pain of natural childbirth is this: My overall health was advantaged by social distancing and furthermore masking for bubble-boying into my own anti-bodies which protected me from two different auto-immune blood viruses or more since around my teenage years. I believe the heard immunisations also advantage my overall health. Overall healthy body psychological and healthy prerogative for soul environment too.

    Therefore my own personal Jesus faith customises everyone else’s’ religious programs among agnostics intuitive for my My MY common causes. I don’t want to speak for all you people because some got such a good faith wagon environment even unawares beyond religions, all you people need is a mere decisive rethink to hang onto that wagon of faith suspension cushion even pothole. Religions absolutely adore those easy winners, as much as idolatrous let it go surrenderers joining for becoming occultly remade into their image . My Jesus never started a religion but is religion reformer by faith tactics. I had to become willing for religions and programs especially moral and immoral atheists to gain a heavenly greater satisfying gratification. If it ain’t compatible for OR with overall health , then become a stranger to the two faced friend/friends because everyone must answer for self. If they tell you all you need to do is strain with all the pretending or mesmerising possible, run and run as fast as zigzag Jesus when hierarchical spy officials tried to crown him after feeding the multitude. That is how true to yourself you got to be for that level of fresh air.

  10. I pointed out that Jesus said it right about addiction underlying cause showing up in other behaviour problem. I did not quote bible but this religion historically was religious theocracy department. Redacted how to deal with the underlying cause of not asserting your personal health rights to veto and mandate instead of letting it go for their bag of results. Wonderful for you sycophants to be knuckled and dimmed off my experience. Because there is no 2016 Jill Stein around to guarddog corruption on your behalf until you are educated/unmiseducated for administering self-government in beyond Republic form’s obsoletion. I am not held back by. $WHO$. . And I don’t care how much you are their captiveatin, Love their liar-ing warnings works for me dodging snares. Their video title question is bogus insincere as they don’t liberate they only captivate.

  11. We are worthy and deserving to fulfill any fraction or majority of our predestined Godhood we desire. Because method to acquire righteousness world worthy of both Jesus Christ and including Predestinator's helper status. Apply the method that YOU want to try even abandoning others incompatible against your success. All the meaningless and Unnecessary stupidity is instigated by the smoking tobacco and alcoholic beverages industry. Whoever resists or not inspired for their freedom and self-government as no-nonsense as you should be segregated. We are winners doing our CONSISTENT best and that is all there is to it. Prove nothing to no one, their stupidity is their problem. We are our best friends and smartest genius popes in the world about winning this battle.. If you need a psychiatrist to do all your thinking for you, then go apply as soon as possible you are the alien boy I said you are that important

  12. Guys if you smoke more than one pack everyday. There are higher chances to not quit smoking or relapse if you are trying by yourself . If you really want to quit take help from your doctor . Doctor will give you some medicines which will increase your chances of quitting cigarettes. Go for it if you tried by your own.

    1) When you are alone, mind your thoughts.
    2) When you are with your friends, mind your tongue.
    3) When you are angry, mind your temper.
    4) When you are with a group, mind your behaviour.
    5) When you are in trouble, mind your emotions.
    6) When God starts blessing you, mind your ego.

  14. i had smoked 15 huge years and i quited it 3 months ago. It was my biggest achivement in my life. Yes it is hard but not impossile. And for who want to quit it, do it now and dont postpone.

  15. I'm only 3 days in and I will say making your mind up to quit is the easy part, it's the withdrawal that is the hard part. I felt like my brain was lagging and a weird tension feeling in my neck. I cheated and smoked one felt amazing to be honest. But I bought some nicotine to help me out, cold turkey is not for me felt really out of it.

  16. I first tried smoking when I was 10 … I’m now 33. I’ve quit for a few years here & there but I’m quitting on the 1st of January 2022 & I am scared. I’m 6 years so so I know I can do It 💪🏻💪🏻💪🏻

  17. The legal crinnimalization are pure crinamsls. People in charge should not be allowed to be in charge unless they have a iq of 200+ its called legal crinnimalization

  18. Day 2 about my 10th attempt on quitting, know my triggers smoke as I'm kind of lonely in my late 30s avoiding going the pubs, or outside as I start scanning for butts on the floor to smoke or just buy some…anyhow I'm done want to find a new me 😊

  19. My uncle has been smoking for 50(he's 62 now) years and up to this day he smokes 10-20 butts a day. . . and he's still miraculously OKAY, no illnesses or complications have surfaced (yet). But 5 decades though, how tf is that possible?

  20. I thought how I'd spend the rest of my days
    After I kick this habit my body craves
    Said to myself this ain't gonna be so tough
    With that little bit of assurance
    I took another puff

  21. 22 years heavy smoker, quit for 35 days today. very difficult. i think the key is to 'get prepared for boredom'. the first few days i felt absolute boredom, nothing to do, what to do now? , something is terribly missing, always want a cigarette, dont want to get up, and life is very meaningless.
    to be ready to live in this boredom was my biggest helper i believe. it is a war and the weapon that is fighting you and attacking you every day is 'boredom'. you need to be prepared for it, and you wont be able to destroy it, just be ready to face it every day and do not say i give up. it will keep coming every minute probably. no problem, just stand your ground.

  22. Hi, one day we will die and stand before God our creator to be judged. According to His word (The Holy Bible), we are all sinners and will be found guilty before him. God will be totally just in sending us to Hell for our sins.

    But the good news is that God has also provided us a way of salvation through His Son Jesus Christ. Jesus died for your sins on the cross and rose again from the dead. If you simply believe in Him, i.e., trust that when He died He died for your sins personally, that moment God will give you the free gift of everlasting life and you can know 100% sure you will go to Heaven when you die!!!

  23. Ma ajsay 🚬smoking quit kar raha hu
    Thik 1month bad ayapa bapas ayungga r dakungga kon kon mara sat haii
    Apvi smoking quit kar rahoo hoo muja bataoo
    Choloo hum log ak sat journey✈️ start karta haii
    Good luck for everyone ☺☺☺☺

  24. Day 19 of quitting smoking. Nicotine gum helps significantly. Counting the number of days quit in my head also helped significantly. I can feel , taste, see, smell better than ever before. Thoughts are still scattered but there are mental benefits with less anxiety and better sleep and positive emotions associated with focusing here and there.

  25. Humans have a long history of killing ..killing for survival.. don't think twice..kill the smoke carving deamon inside you..never let it in again inside you. Believe in yourself and your God or Angel to be strong infront of a mirror and the are not are a proud rare case..

  26. I just smoke with friends. All my friends smoke and when I am alone I do not smoke but when I am around friends or colleges I smoke when they smoke. I do not know why… But I have to smoke when I am with friends… It is a nervous feeling inside me when I do not smoke

  27. I quit smoking for three years. If my friends give me cigarettes, I will smoke. If my friends don't give me cigarettes, I will ask for them
