I think the regret component sinks in fairly relentlessly.

Gop to an emphysema ward for a walk...as you will be the only one able to.

Up to you.

I choose not to do suicidal things for spiritual reasons.

I quit about a year and a half ago. It was tough for me - did it cold turkey.
Got an app on my phone to track the $ and time I was saving my quitting and how my health was improving. At first, I checked it every couple of hours - it was like a game.

The thing NO one talks about is the negative side effects of quitting!
Thought I had the flu. Lasted a couple of months - it was insane,but worth it to stop smiling king and killing myself.

Loved smoking, but I knew in my soul I was very slowly and surely giving myself a death sentence.

Well, I didn't 'succeed' in the technical sense, in quitting, but I do want to commend this thread and the folks here for being an inspiration to examine my habits.
I have always been a casual smoker...a pack (maybe a touch more) a week.
I found this thread and caught the wave, and managed a day, but went back, at a lesser rate.
(had increased my normal 3/d in the last 2 years, subtly, unconsciously)
so to me this has been a great success.
I never wanted to quit, as I do truly enjoy the experience, both for separating self from the herd, and for the sheer pleasure of being 'bad'....in addition to my actual physical pleasure.
So, thank you all for the impetus to look at my slow slide into unconsciousness!

ive been wanting to quit for the last week or so. this will be my third go at it. the first time i went about 2 months. the second time for like 3 weeks.

but all the doom has been getting to me. i feel like i need to work on getting back my lung capacity and stop wasting money.

i know that the reason i haven't quit is that i dont really want to. im sure some of you guys know what i mean. i want to... but i enjoy smoking. i want to have my cake and eat it too and meanwhile im still smoking.

im about to light up my last cig in the pack. tomorrows a new day.

Back in June I decided to quite I tried the patch the this and that all crap.. I knew there was a better way .. I started to ask around and a number of people told me about Laser acupuncture.. yes it takes a little bit of will power but they may not get the right spots the first time around so you need to go back.. I went back a second time after I had faltered a little.. Since then i have been smoke free. it's made me change a number of things in my life and im moving forward with many more..

You can stop smoking.. but blowing sunshine up your own ass won't help.. stop and force yourself to do other things.. you will be fine

Glad to see this thread is still going.

The one thing I have to contribute is this: if I could take back any decision I've EVER made in my life, it would be this...that I never started smoking. Smoked for over 20 years.

If I could reverse any decision in my entire life, it would be that,

I've been smoke-free for 5 years.

I now vape 6 mg, on my way to zero, and vaping has been my lifesaver.

Best way to quit smoking or nearly anything is to do so much of it in one evening that you are physically sick. May not work for hard drugs as you may be dead.

Re: I QUIT SMOKING , YOU CAN TOO. I QUIT SEPT 27, 2012, SUPPORT EACH OTHER HERE
Quit smoking 5 years ago. How I did it, I used the patch but I didn't enjoy the patch, I wore it on my arm and it made my arm sore. So after 2 weeks of using the patch I started to only use the patch every other day. By the end of the 3rd week I was so sick of the patch I just stopped wearing it, and haven't had a cigarette since.

One thing you need to understand about quitting 1 Physical addiction to Nicoteine goes away after 3 days, So after the 3 day marker it is all MENTAL and in your head. So 3 DAYS is the Goal marker after that it is all down hill, because you know will know you don't NEED it anymore, you will just want it, which you can overcome.

So you have to drill it into your head how much you hate smoking and won't do it anymore, tell yourself how much money you save, tell yourself how nice it is not to stink all the time. Tell yourself how much less money you will have to spend because of doctors or loss work from throat infections or getting colds. Tell yourself whatever you need to convince yourself that you do NOT need a cig, life IS so much better without them.

The cravings will still return but they will go away in less then 5 minutes and will come less and less frequently. At first I'd get a craving bout once a week, then once a month, then once every couple months, eventually they will just go away. When these happen just go take a walk or something let the craving pass, it isn't that big of a deal. Realize how much simpler your life will be without being a slave to an addiction.

Lastly I reccomend anyone thinking about quitting watch the movie The Insider. So you understand exactly what the tobacco companies have done to keep you addicted at the cost of your health.
