    Quit again 4 days ago.

    Hi, I’m glad WebMD has this stop smoking message board for me to lean on and to have a place to be accountable and to go to when I need to talk through this. I had stopped smoking before for about 10 years but fighting for my daughter (still fighting) in a horrible still ongoing custody battle with an Alienating Parent that has Alienated my daughter from me 7-1/2 years ago ended up with me reaching for my drug fix of nicotine/cigarette after not seeing my daughter at month 7 and of course it got....

    trying to finally quit

    For the first 25 years of my life, I didn't smoke. Then I started around the age of 26 or 27 but not a heavy smoker, maybe 1 or 2 cigs a day. Then in 2005, I quit for 2 years. Then started back in 2008 due to partner dying, being a caregiver, and as a result, been smoking profusely every since. When I picked back up, the smoking increased from 1 to 2 cigs to a pack a day very fast!!! Unusually fast!! I now smoke in social situations, after eating dinner, stressful situations, bored, or studying....

    quit smoking

    I have tried over the years to quit and the best success I had was using hypnosis. I was smoke free for 6 years and I started again because of a migraine and a stressful situation and no meds to help so I tried the only other option that I had at the time, Now knowing what I know now I wish I could turn the clock back and use essential oils(aromatherpy) and hypnosis and be smoke free again. as the aromatherpy is helping and I recommend trying it if you are wanting to quit. I am happy to help if you....

    Let's try this again only with more feeling!

    I am 1/2 German, and a pinch more Irish than English. Anyway you view it you see HOT-HEAD! Smoking did not help that issue. In fact it made it worse along with the dozens of health issues I have. Now, I've attempted and I've tried quitting in the past. Last record was 7 months smoke free. Yet I always stumble back to it like my favorite "blankie". I have COPD, but I do not have emphysema and I would like to keep it that way. And so I have officially been smoke free for 36 hours....

    Kidney pain after quitting smoking

    I'm 6+ weeks smoke free after a 25 year cigarette habit, chewing 2mg nicotine gum once or twice a day to keep the jones off. So far, so good. I'm eating well, excercising regularly, and staying hydrated, but this week I'm getting severe kidney pain, which I've noticed before in previous, less successful quitting attempts. When I've experienced this in the past, I've had ultrasound scans performed to check for kidney stones or other obvious damage, with negative results. Anyone....
