Paul’s quitting journey
“I can do this so therefore you can do this, it’s really, really good having energy and being smoke free.”
Week 0 – My name is Paul Andrew Goldsmith. I smoke on a day to day basis between 7 to 10 cigarettes. I really want to give up because I’m turning 40 in a few weeks and I didn’t want to enter my 40s as a smoker. However my main motivation has got to be my children.
Week 2 – I have been using distraction techniques alongside the NRT, I’m using the Nicorette® QuickMist Spray. I’m distracting myself with reading, playing with the kids and computer games.
Week 6 – It’s been quite a challenge the last week. It was my birthday and I had a few drinks which normally combine with a cigarette. Luckily I didn’t but it was very, very hard not to. I have been using the Nicorette® app on Facebook which is great because it throws tips and motivation out there.
Week 8 – I have used the money I have saved over the last seven weeks to go towards a little trip away. I’m finding my health is better, I have got so much more energy and I’m less tired.
Week 10 – Im so, so happy I have managed to get this far without smoking, feeling this way is wonderful. Having so much more energy to play with my kids and do the things that I love is such a motivator.
3 months – This time, using a quit plan, it kind of gave me a structure. I think that’s what I never had in the past – a structure. I just did the ‘I’m going to give up smoking’.
Tiana’s quitting journey
“You only live once so it’s much better to live smoke free.”
Week 0 – I’m Tiana, I’m 31, I can have from 5 to 10 cigarettes a day and on a night I can have up to 20. A lot of my friends are having babies and getting married, because they have those things in their lives then actually giving up smoking I am almost like the last woman standing. It’s time to quit.
Week 1 – Day 3 of not being a smoker anymore I promised myself I was going to get better at getting up this hill. I’m going to give it a go and hopefully the next time I do it, it won’t be as painful.
Week 4 – I had a little slip up, I’ve had one cigarette and that was just out at the Christmas party and do you know what it was? I didn’t have my Nicorette® inhalator with me. Still going to keep on track, I’m not going to give up.
Week 6 – I actually feel the happiest I have ever felt. I’m going out on walks on my own, I’m cycling more, I’m going for jogs. I brought a
smoothie maker and what I have been doing is trying to replace my cigarette cravings with actually a healthy smoothie.
Week 9 – I think this attempt has been more successful because I have changed the way I’m looking at my smoking habits. When I do go out with my friends I’m not popping off on my own to go have a cigarette, I’m there for the whole thing.
3 months – I’m at the end of my quit time journey, but actually I think it’s just the beginning because I have this whole life ahead of me of being smoke free and I’m quite committed to maintaining that.
