I found reading - Allen Carr's Easy way to Stop Smoking, extremely helpful.
Reading the book will definitely be a huge help, loads of second hand copies all over the net.
the book dispels a lot of myths and mental conditioning as to why we smoke, once you have read it you will see smoking in a way that you have never seen it before which makes giving up so much easier.

Talk to you doctor about medications. My in-laws were HEAVY smokers and took Champex and have now been smoke free for 5 months.

Even those electronic cigarettes seem to work. Both my mom & my cousin have quit by using them.

good for you! i love when people say they "work out for their health" more than for making themselves look good... and then you see them walk outside the gym and take a smoke break. clearly health is super important lol i tried to get my husband to use those electronic ones cuz at least they dont make his clothes and hair smell but it didnt work. he said its just not the same as a real one.

Thanks for all the advice guys, fell off the wagon a couple if days ago but still trying.
Electronic cigs arn't that good I've tryed them, just dont seem to do it for me.
Plus I need to get over my dependence of nicotine, not just change how I'm taking it.
going to try and go cold turkey this time.
No patches, no gum, no gymicks just plain old horse power lol

The electronic sigs allow you to go down. At least that's what I've seen from my family members. Guess there's different strengths of cartridges for them.

Never been a smoker so fortunately this is not a process I've ever had to go through. I do worry, though, that some of these quitting-aids simply swap one addiction for another, rather than fighting the addiction itself.
I realise this is very hard, and that breaking habits can be the hardest part of the process, but in my opinion you have to target the addiction, not the substance/delivery-method.
Then again, what do I know?

Ok, so I have stopped smoking after 13years. And did it cold turkey. Been going for almost 5 months now. What is the trick. Well, bodybuilders might night like the answer lol, but I started running and kinda figured that the two wont go together. I entered my first race and that was my ticket. Weirdly, when you do training like running or cycling your body releases endorphins and this helps to suppress your nicotine cravings. It worked for me. The first 2 or 3 days after I quit was hard but not too hectic. I tried my best to either run everyday or every other day at least. The running helps for the cravings. Just my little bit of advice. Use it don't use it ;)
Keep it up. If you can find something to replace your smoking habits (in my case it was running) then you can easily stop. It's really not that hard. If you want to stop, you will.

I haven't had a smoke in about a week... I use the patch and toothpicks for the oral habit... seems to help

For some Cold Turkey works and I hope it does for you. My thoughts are its best if you ween yourself off them slowly.
You've been doing this habit for X number of years so it's likely you'll need months to come off it.

To quit smoking set a quit day and make it special for you. Do not buy cigarettes and avoid going to places where you might found smokers. Save money you would spend on cigarettes and plan for a treat tomorrow. Ask your friends and family members to support your decision and do start exercise, some sport or any physical activity.

Yeah first think about your lungs and heart it ruins the infernally system completely,And think about about your family that they need you for a long time,if you are not married think about your parents just stick to what you have done now.leave it completely. people need you.

hello, just browsing and saw some chats about quitting the ol smoke stix! I tried numerous times over the course of around 6-8 years.....on and off i would succeed for a short period of time (my most recent being 2years) I have tried Chantix, nicorette and cold turkey style. Chantix works but has some side effects, so I stopped that short of perscription but it worked....for a short time......to make a long story short, i quit cold turkey and join muay thai---and let me tell you, YOU gotta be pretty hard, to kill that kinda cardio and still wanna smoke!!! So, i agree with what someone put earlier on this feed, running and smoking dont go together.....thats what i did so just putting in a word about another method......thankyou!
best of luck and cheers everyone!
p.s. doesnt have to be muay thai or mma, ANY cardio will help, and the more you do the less you will want that nasty little smoke........power to ya!

Managed to quit around 4 months ago.
I didnt want to quit in particularly, but i listened to Allen Carr's Easy way to Stop Smoking, Audio Book, over the course of about 2 weeks. After that i quit.
He mentioned one particular thing in the audibook, which grabbed me....time...and hiow much more time i would have if i didnt smoke. Anyway when i got to the end of the book, i thought sod it, ill see how much extra time i have...i did....and it was a lot!
Im kind of used to it, now, but really all those extra hours in the day help so much.
