Looking for buddies who have / want to quit smoking

Hi All,

 

I'm looking for buddies who have quit or want to quit smoking and have some social support. 
I didn't smoke for many years. Then I became unwell and started smoking again a few years ago. It's a love hate relationship. There many reasons why smoking is an engraved habit, Ive been smoking since I was a teenager. I stop and start nowadays. I know it doesn't help my anxiety as I can't breathe well anyway and my depression and nightmares are worse when I stop. So smoking is no good and stop starting neither. 

Anyone out here who wants to try or quit for good with me? 👋😊

Hey @petrichor ,

 

Well done on taking this step!

 

 I'm not a smoker, but if I was, I'd sure join you! I hope you find some buddies soon! It'd be a great way to encourage each other.

Hi @BPDSurvivor 

thank you for your encouragement 😊 

It's good to have people in my corner

Re: Looking for buddies who have / want to quit smoking

Yes! I do! 

Reading this now... just happened to stumble across thisl

Virtually every day I'm saying to myself I'm going to quit. I started again about 3 years ago, after having stopped for 10 years. I need to do this for my health.... and so many other reasons.

 

Let's do it! Somehow. I'm in.
