    Finally I decided to stop smoking and I didn't smoke since 4 days, I have a really bad headachs, my loungs produce a lot of phlegm, I'm really stresssed and I became really angry, I know that's nicotine effects, but I'll make sure that I can continue .... wish me good luck

    Just stick with it James The phlegm WILL go away! It is your body making new cells. Just stopping for a day is already giving you better health. You are getting headaches from not having nicotine, but you can drink some coffee or get a patch in the mean time. Try a clinic for a patch!

    Kudos to you :) I'm glad you are on your 5th day today! I hope you are still going strong, please keep us updated. I know that quitting cold turkey is not easy, but this decision is probably one of the best decision you will ever make in your entire life. Keep that up, and don't worry, it is said the cravings in the first weeks only last 10 minutes or so, so find something else when the cravings start!

    You are doing great. It is going to take your body a little while to get use to the new change but it will be all worth it. Stick to it and never stop believing that you can do this! You will feel so much better once you are smoke free. Before you know it years will have passed and you will no longer feel the effects of those nasty cigarettes! Keep up the good work! You got this!!

    Being smoke-free is so much better than being filled up with smoke. It's hard but oh-so-worth it. You should drink plenty of water so that you can feel energized and aid your body in the cleansing process.
    Good luck with sticking with your current smoke-free program, and :D:D to all the money you'll be saving (!!) now that you're not spending it on that nicotine.

    @Jamesbonner... It's fabulous that you've decided to quit smoking! It's such a nasty, unhealthy habit. Keep drinking a bunch of water and take things a day at a time. Or an hour or a minute at a time if you have to. You can do this. You're already through the hardest part!!! As an ex-smoker, I can assure you that this is one of the BEST things you will ever do for yourself!

    You got this, bro. We're here to help and support you any way we can.

    @Jamesbonner... Take a shower! Seriously! When I was quitting, anytime I was home and wanted to smoke I would hop in the shower for 5 minutes. It worked!

    Smoking is one of the hardest addiction to tackle, so making a decision to stop smoking and your achievement staying away from cigarettes is truly inspirational, and proves that it's possible to do it.

    So, yes! Keep motivation up :)
