Finally, I have decided to really quit smoking ( 3 days has passed, 0 smoke ). IT TAKES ALOT OF COURAGE AND WILLINGNESS !!!!

I've got inspired after reading here : www.mytimetoquit.com

Right now.... I'm dying........... but I have to fight it !!! I have to forget it !!! .

Its been two months since i last had a ciggie. It just came naturally but i had to slowly lay off it. Mind you, i was never the hard core chain smoker. The most i ever had in a day was 10 and then down to about 5 then 4,3,2,1.

For a while it would yoyo from 5-1 depending how i felt and then somehow i managed a day without one and then two and then a week and then a month and within my 3rd month ive not looked back.

Sure, i've kept myself busy and i think the thing that did it for me was not to think about it too much, looking back on it i've come to conclude that its pretty much like loosing a Girlfriend. It'll hurt for a while but as time goes by you and your system will eventually learn to live without it.

I dont think there is no secret recipe as everyone is different, theres always different ways its just a matter what works for you and when the time is right. I feel the more i tell myself that i had to quit the more smoking clunged itself onto me until eventually i stopped carring so much and it happened naturally. I dont have the fear about me smoking again, even when im under pressure (3 loud kids is a testament) i dont feel the urge to take a puff.

Determination should be there (to quit) and ofcourse dont keep putting it off BUT do it gradually. It could work for someone

I'm hardcore cigarettes smoker almost 18 years ( about a pack a day ) ....... and in some months I smoke almost two packs a day..... until I get sick very easily, then I automatically reduce to 1 pack.

The feeling of quitting is like your girlfriend said good bye to you all of sudden. You want to call her, but she hang up the phone. You keep remembering her, but she is going out with somebody else. Ouch...... it hurts Your mind is full of her...... expecting her to come back, but she doesn't want.

So you guys who never smoke before...... Never start smoking this shhittdz !!! .

Well for me. I just got plain sick of them. Smoked 25 years.
Smoking 2 packs a day and just quit cold.
Now 8 years smoke free.
The urge never goes away, I could break down any minute.
The urge gets weaker with time and the will not to gets stronger.
I would like to say that its bad for your health, but I know people that are 80+ and still smoke.
I work as a service tech and have been in houses that are so stained with smoke its unbelievable.

Now my wife she smokes, and she says its because I quit smoking.

Quitting smoking was a piece of cake for me... 2 packs a day and BOOOOOM quit just like that....

Oh yeah , something else happened at the same time.....
My appendix burst ( not ruptured, BURST ) might have something to do with it......

Bottom line, you have to WANT to quit... Saying it means nothing... Dwwp down inside you HAVE to quit...

They also offer a new pill that makes it like instant vomiting if you smoke....
Hope those are viable choices for me...I go with the Prayer first than any other means available..It take 20years for you to have the same risk of a non smoker for lung cancer.

Your a strong soul.
I pray every day.

I quit 2 and a half weeks ago cold turkey and haven't looked back since. I quit cold turkey also. Now all I gotta do is talk the wife into quitting.

Truly, I rather spend $$$ for smokes ..... unfortunately, I'm not healthy like 10 years ago. Everytime I smoke..... I feel dead.... short of breath, coughing, hand shaking, etc. Now, I have to forget that I was a smokers before........ it's really a mind war ( thanks Phillip Morris !!! ) : WILL VS. CRAVING

My doctors also said cold turkey is the best way to quit....... just stop and stop and forget it. Sometimes I have to brush my teeth 8 times a day just to make the craving go away.

Good luck all. Try not to be around ppl who smoke helps. I seen coworkers who quit for a while but go outside to bum one during stressful weeks. Soon they're smoking again.

I never will quit but then again my smoke rate is about 2 packs a year and a few cubans thrown in for good measure. Only times I really crave a smoke are on a hot muggy nights. I guess nicotine isn't destined to be an addiction for me. Now RCs on da udder hand

Question: What was most efficiant? Praying for two years, being allowed by the lord to go through a Bone Marrow Transpant or the pill that make you vomiting?
