    Quitting is possible...

    So after 44 years of smoking, several attempts and methods of trying to be a non - smoker, i am praying that the hard effort of being an ex- smoker (quit Jan. 14) will stick! I am using Chantix this time. I've tried gums, patches and vaping. I always went back to smoking.. Perhaps because my motivation wasn't there completely..and thought cigarettes were my "friends"! So to those who have tried to quit, I feel your pain! To those who managed a few days and started smoking again....

    Always need to smoke when I drive

    I don't know how to stop smoking when I'm driving. I feel like smoking is getting in the way of my daily life. It's all I think about. Just got a new car and it stinks of cigarettes. I need a cigarette at work, when I'm studying, or out with friends. It's too much, but I don't know where to start. I'm hoping someone here can give me some tips. I don't have friends to talk to about this issue.

    Concerned friend

    So my friend, she's 17, has made a new best friend. But I think she is a bad influence on my friend. Since they have met, the other girl has introduced her to weed (which is now legal in the state) and salvia. I see on her snapchat, videos and pictures of her and the friend smoking almost every day. My friend disclosed to me she didn't want to end up like her mother, who died from a drug overdose. This was two years ago. A mutual friend and I are very concerned for her health. I talked to....

    Hoarseness and dry cough days after quitting

    I quit smoking 11 days ago. I am using the lozenges and besides being irritable occasionally, I do not have withdrawal symptoms. I have no doubt that I will quit successfully. I smoked for 12 years, quit for 8 years, life happened and I started smoking after hanging with other smokers during a time of stress. This time, I have been smoking for 8 years and I am done. However, just a couple of days after quitting, I felt like I had a cold...you know the kind that settles in your chest. I guess I started....

    Quit drinking.. swollen liver

    I drank nightly for 2 years. I quit cold turkey almost 20 days ago. I quit cigarettes at the same time.. I know this is almost unrelated to the board but I wasn’t sure where else I could fit it.. The detox was really bad and lasted more than 14 days, but I am much better as of now I just recently started to feel okay. Tonight I have a very uncomfortable and somewhat painful feeling of swollen-ness in my liver area as long as the same area being pretty itchy. I’ve been very bloated for the past week....
