Quit Smoking

I've been trying to quit for about a year. Every now and then I get this sudden urge to throw away my pack.. and I feel great when I do it. It's only until sunrise, that I feel like as because I go and buy another pack. Any helpful suggestion's on quitting?

I quit using the Nicotrol Inhaler's. These are 'plastic' cigarettes which utilize a disposable 10 mg. Nicotene cartridge. Family doctor gave me a sample pack of them after we discussed the various products on the market. That was 5 years ago this past November. Had previously tried the patch, gum, hypnotism, and accupuncture. The inhaler (little plastic cigarette with nicotene cartridge inside) gave me something to do with my hands which was apparently my key to quitting. Think it took me about a month to quit after smoking for over 40 years. Good luck to you Ahmad.

My mom tried for years, tried everything on the market. She had been smoking since she was 11-12. She is 45 now and quit about 3 years ago. She said the key was all mental. All the other stuff was a crutch and just suplemented her addiction, never ending it. She had to make a stand one day. She said if you can decide to put them down for a week, you are good to go. Just get over that hump. By the time a month came around, she couldn't stand the smell of them. But everyone is different.

It actually is. I think most people do it out of habit more than anything. Kinda like drinking. I went through a couple years of smoking, but it was only while driving. I could go an entire week without it at home, but when I would drive back in forth to work I wanted one. More of a boredom thing. When it gets associated, like I said to partying/drinking, thats when you become weakest.

Poeple smoke for personal gratification. I think it is the deep breathing away from the stresses at work, etc.
The Nicotene is addicting but the habit can be broken.

I have also tried quiting a couple times but end up smoking again.
That is where I got the personal gratification idea.

Just my $0.02

Well, just to let you know, i quit for new years, been 15 days since i have had a cigarette. i have tried a lot of things to quit but heres what worked for me......


Having someone in my life that i want to grow old with and be healthy for, before i met my girl, i smoked roughly a pack, pack and 1/2 a day, i wasnt enough reason to quit smoking, im not worried about myself, but i do want to be there for her and her 2 beautiful little girls when i get older.

btw, yes i quit cold turkey besides the use of sunflower seeds, no nicotine patch or inhaler, just seeds, they keep you busy

i started smoking when i was 13. 16 through 20 i smoked a pack a day or more. I quit cold turkey when i was 20. I am 32 now. I have relapsed several times since then sometimes continuing to smoke as long as a few months. But i quit every time. Using different methods: cold turkey, patch, gum. I may relapse again in the future. What I can say - i like smoking - it is really a life long thing. I dont think i have smoked in the past several years (not even one cig). It's not easy to quit but most of smokers have done that many times.

I tried this and it made me feel funny. I told the Doctor about it and he said I should stop. This was last year.
I wouldn't suggest it, personnaly.
