  1. How to stop smoking?


    Hey guys,

    I'm one of those stupid f u c kers that started smoking and now have a hard time to stop.

    I started when I was 23, and now I'm 32 and think it's time to say goodbye to them.

    Anyone wants to share their experience?

    Appreciate it...

  2. i'm over two months without a cig.....i turned to electronic cig's...not the crappy ones u find at gas stations though

    your better off going with a mod e cig, they are more satisfying imo, you also get a wide variety of sites that sell different flavors and diffrent nicotine strengths....may not be the best but you don't get the burning smoke and all the other chemicals included in cigarettes

    i've also read recent things that say nicotine is very addictive but it's easier to get off than a lot of ppl think because cigarettes actually have a host of other addictive things in them....but as long as i'm getting my nicotine i dont' miss the cigs at all and i've already dropped my nicotine content down from 24mg to 18mgs during the day and 12 mg at night

  3. Friends of mine have tried going cold turkey & stopping, but they all started smoking again within months & some within weeks... They seemed to think that they were better & stronger because they "tried" to do it with no help...

    I however chose patches... The thing with patches is that they stop the cravings, but if the will to not smoke isn't there the patches don't do a damn thing... I wanted to quit, so I used the patches to kill the cravings & my mind HAD TO do the rest... Anyways, 8yrs of smoking turned into 7yrs smoke free my friend... Why? Because I put my health & will power infront of my ego...

  4. Almost 8yrs smoke free actually...

    The saying, "where there's a will, there's a way" could not be more fitting when it comes to quitting smoking... I feel great & the money you save is crazy... Have you got a plan of attack, or are you just in the planning stages?

  11. Suprisingly chewing tobacco helped me out. My need for nicotine fixes dropped dramatically and I find the habit far more disgusting so I cut back a lot.

    All said and done you truly have to want to quit. And people telling you not to smoke becomes reverse psychology. Chew gum, lollipops, anything that fills the gap of that oral fixation. Haven't smoked for 4 years now.

    No doubt. It can be done. And you will when you truly want to. It may not be tomorrow but keep thinking that way and you'll come around. And don't make a circumstance like "Oh when X or Y happen, then ill quit."

  15. You're not going to want to hear this but studies show that those who stop cold Turkey have a better chance of staying stopped than just weaning yourself off...I smoked for ten years..started at age 12 and quit at 22..only thing is that at the time I was also a heavy drug user and alcoholic I quit everything cold Turkey and never looked back

  16. Cold turkey is the only way to go.

  17. I quit 6/27/2007....cold turkey. I used to smoke almost 2 packs a day. My situtation was different than most though. I was moving from Chicago to Denver to start a new life and took full adavantage of being away from friends and family that were smokers as well....needless to say it worked. If i were you i would look into chewing gum either with or without the nicotine, the gum chewing really curbed the urge for me....good luck.

  19. Started smoking at 13-14 now I'm almost 21. At the age of 17 I quit and started dipping. And hopefully in the future from dip to beef jerky. Ha nicotine is the hardiest thing to quit that I've ever been addicted to.

  24. I agree with the first reply. E cigs have replaced smoking for me. I feel far healthier. Also, as stated a mod is the way to go... there's many out there to choose from, the silverbullet or a REO are ones I would start a search on google with. Been off smoking since march thanks to e cigs.

    I quit cold turkey from drinking 3 and a 1/2 years ago. Smoking for some reason I just needed to go what I feel is a harm reduction route.

    Good luck.

  26. +1 for ecigs, just made the switch and am loving it. For me smoking was more then the nic, it was the act of chilling with friends, passing time and watching the smoke. The first week is hard just because you have to get used to the taste and charging the battery but once you get used to it smoking the real thing becomes more and more disgusting till you don't need it anymore. Gonna be droping down from 2.4 to 1.8 soon and it feels good.

    Very good option to start. NYC is $13 a pack, that's enough to keep me from smoking.

    Wow, that's ridiculous. When I did it was like 6-7$ a pack, and that's pretty ridiculous as well.

  30. hey amigos....the time has come....today is the day I quit smoking.....

    My girlfriend got a pregnancy test yesterday, guess what...we're having a baby!!!!

    Very happy right now, but the fact I 'm quitting smoking will probably kill my exitement.....

    Just have to do it....
