Give me your best tips to stop smoking, I'm going to give a proper shot this time, reasons I've failed in the past, I never truly wanted to stop, but now the time is right.


So I smoke rolling tobacco, I like it strong, and I can smoke a cig every 30 mins in the evening, boredom thing I guess.


I know the useawal, plenty of exercise etc etc , but what helped you?

LJS and Chip are correct.

After 72 hours it is just a habit.

Do not interact with people during the 72 hour period it is best for everyone. <I know>
I quit for 12 years then decided to start again like a moran.

Just stop, then stop the habit.

Re: Give me your best tip that helped you stop smoking. DAY 5
I tried quitting only once and was successful. I already was chewing nicotine gum for flying etc. But, one day I woke up with a really sore throat from a cold. And, I didn't take that morning smoke. From there with a few tabs of nicotine gum I was free.

Wait until you're sick to quit. Worked for me.

Nicorette gum made it really easy for me to quit smoking. You still get that nicotine to satisfy the craving, but not the harmful smoke.

After I didn't feel the urge to smoke anymore, I switched from Nicorette to menthol flavored cough drops. 10 years later, I have never smoked again, but I do still carry a few cough drops in my pocket, every day.

Cut down the nicotine in small increments weekly until you forget the vape pen at home one day. Then stop doing that also.

Okay so I smoked for 3 years almost a chain smoker too which is why I quit. So what I did was within the span of 3-5 weeks that's how long it took me. The first week I would limit myself like 5 a day then the next week down to only 4 a day, then 3, 2, until I was only smoking 1 a day. Not saying that will work for everyone but it worked for me.

I still have dreams of smoking when I'm going through stressful times, you just have to become dedicated to a lifestyle change and journey into better health so not to fall back into the old habits. Good luck OP and all who are trying to quit.

Why tell yourself you're quitting? Make it a game- you're not quitting you're just seeing how long you can go without smoking. If it's 2 days thats great. Start the game again with a new goal.

If you smoke when you wake up, make yourself wait until after a shower or walk the dog or something.

Then, since you waited that long, wait until AFTER you eat breakfast, cos it makes your breakfast taste like shit anyway.

Then, instead of smoking IMMEDIATELY after breakfast,
like Pavlov's monkees . . .
Wait until you drive to work.

If you smoke before bed, make youself skip that last one
and wait until morning.

The longer you can wait between smoking, the more it aggravate s
you that you keep craving them
because they are nasty af.

They make your lips burn
they stink
they make your stomach hurt
they stink
they turn your fingers brown
they stink
people look like monkees when they smoke
did i mention they stink?

you will start to hate them and just stop smoking
just don't try to force yourself to Quit
cos then you'll feel like you're depriving yourself of something

But the drinking part, is on a case by case basis.

I still have 2 glasses of wine each night and even more on the weekends.

The drinking has not pushed me back to smoking but I'm sure it is different for everyone.

Re: Give me your best tip that helped you stop smoking. DAY 5
This is how to stop smoking… worked for me….

Don’t use gum, cheat, do it cold turkey but more to it than that…

Prepare, you can slow down smoking a bit prior to the big “stop” day but tapering wont work.

Get your head right. Understand the process of what is going to happen and prepare for it. You are going to have a BIG hell 3 days, then a hell 3 weeks and your done!

When I say get your head right, understand you can put up with anything for a three-week period cant you?
My gosh basic training or 30 days in jail for 30 days or 3 months of chemo is nothing compared to three weeks of cigarette withdrawal. Mark you calendar and know in three weeks its over!

Make sure your bills are paid etc. So no extra stress like a breakup or a car repo during that 3-week period.

Take the 1st 3 days off, buy loads of junk food, ice cream, Order pizza, comfort food, soda whatever and who cars if its bad for you, you need this stuff. Rent a bunch of movies, take some Xanax, lots of over the counter pain meds and any sleep meds you may have and use it for 3 days. Prepare to totally give up 3 days and tell your friends and family to leave you totally alone. If you fight with your wife or family on a regular basis then you must do this alone on a 3-day vacation away from stress…
Do not drive past any store that sells cigs; stay at home 3 days in the bed.

After the three days you can start to function but the next three weeks are hard. Stay away from friends that smoke, the bar and no alcohol or coffee period.

Buy yourself something big, fun or get a hobby. In my case I purchased a new car as I figured I could afford the payment if I stopped smoking. I threw the cigs out the window on my way home from the dealer… I made a deal with myself as it was the cigs or a new car and I did not want to stink up my new ride. When I had a craving I waxed, washed or drove my clean smelling new Mustang around and reminded myself that I had a reason and a plan and a deal with myself and I deserved this new cars as long as I did not smoke…

Get your head right, prepare, reward yourself and in 3 weeks you are free!

You can put up with ANYTHING for a 3 week period, accept that and just do the time.

Re: Give me your best tip that helped you stop smoking. DAY 5
Cold Turkey....3 days to get the hard physical crave out of your system......
Then you control it, it doesn’t control you. The sooner you get that done, the sooner you get your life back in control.
The mental takes about a month. Take walks in the fresh air, take a shower, cleaning your body if the crave is strong. Chew gum, suck candy,
Like lemon drops, wintergreen, spearmint, lifesavers, even ice cubes. Drink water or tea. Avoid alcohol, if it gets in the way of your decision.
Be aware your subconscious will try to sabotage you, because it wants its toys....so you might find yourself getting angry to...get a dog gone smoke.
Finally, and best of all, do something with your hands, make or create something you can look at and say to yourself I started doing this instead. So find a project that you can be proud of.
Finally, postpone letting yourself have, just one......If you give in, you start
The whole craving thing all over again. So read a book, promise yourself you will read 20 pages befor you let yourself think about it again. Realize you are an exsmoker and you can date any man or woman and not be offensive with the smell of smoke. You will have much less risk of stroke, heart attack, and......men....less chance of impotency. See smoking contributes to blood vessels getting clogged with plaque. When the small arteries that feed the brain, heart muscle and...penis get clogged......well it goes from bad to ugly real quick. Drink OJ and eat those green vegetables and fruit, until your taste buds get stronger again.
OK, and if you blow it, start again, do it till it works. Get it in your mind set that you are a winner. And getting free of this habit will make you the best you can be at the moment. (And a little more pocket change in your pocketbook.
Set your goals and achieve your desires. Hang out with non smokers and enjoy the fresh air. If you have to be around another smoker, be outside and step out and away from their exhaust.
Hope that helps OP. I quit smoking years before I quit drinking, and it really is mind over matter. I was terribly addicted to both. My best postponement was when I promised myself I could smoke in my old age....and I haven’t gotten that old yet.

Good post!!!!

I’m on MMJ, and I’ll be seeing both my neurologist as well as my MMJ Dr next month. They’ve both brought up quitting, my neurologist specifically, for a long term inpatient test, but my wife, who has never been a smoker and has never once asked me to quit, would be estatic. The MMJ is a good deterrent for those who have access if one can resist the initial “after a good puff” smoke. I’ve been trying for several week and was doing pretty good; a suicide in the family convinced my dad and I both to just bum one of another family member; then bum one from a friend a few times; then buy an occasional pack; now I’m nearly back where I started. I smoke while I wear the patch sometimes just because it’s time to and I’m so stuck on schedule. It’s definitely a mental thing.

Put all your used cigarette butts into a glass jar with some water and put a lid on it. Each time you think about smoking, open the jar and take a big whiff of it. The smell will turn you off smoking fast.

Re: Give me your best tip that helped you stop smoking. DAY 5
Go to a local hospital and see if they have a wing where COPD patients are using the exercise room. Stroll in and just sit and watch those folks. Now imagine you being one of those patients in thirty years.

My mom is 80 and she has had COPD for about ten years. Her quality of life is extremely limited. 24 hours a day she is tied to an oxygen tank. Small short puffs of air to fill her lungs. Only less than 10% capacity. She cannot even blow her nose like everybody else. Several very short puffs to clean it out.

She cannot walk very far without getting out of breath. Her skin is paper thin with the veins popping out due to the loss of fat underneath the skin. When I wrap my arms around her all I feel is skin and bones. Very emaciated in appearance and touch.

Now, picture yourself with those limitations. Do you want that? Your body is going to be very different than my mother's which means you might not make to to 80. You might only last until 55 before you need the oxygen.

Look in the mirror and tell yourself what quality of life do you want to live in old age. Do you want independence, the ability to drive a car and go out to a nice restaurant....OR do you want to be trapped in a room with no one coming to see you because they have forgotten that you exist. Having a debilitating disease like COPD is a death sentence and no body is going to care about you.

Stop smoking, get over your addiction, suck in few breaths of non-smoke filled air and learn how to beat the demon which is tempting you. You are a smart person who can win this game. It only take you to say "NO!" when the urge hits and stick with that decision. Do it once and you will begin to feel how good your body reacts. Do it twice and your body will feel a lot better. Do it a third time and when you stick with it, then it will have a better chance of becoming a habit. Don't give in to temptation.

Just my two cents.

Re: Give me your best tip that helped you stop smoking. DAY 5
Heck, I forgot to mention some of the good parts of having COPD. Ever see a x-ray of a normal lung? Its dark in color. A sick lung is white. Now picture in your mind a sick lung with just five percent of the top of the lung being black in color on the x-ray. Ten percent is what my mom has to deal with all because she could not put down her Winstons. I asked her one day if she still craves cigarettes and she said, "Oh, yea". Twenty years after she stopped smoking she still craves them, but her medical conditions prohibits her from lighting up. Odd, how the brain can get programmed.

Cup your hand and put it over your nose. Get a good seal going. Now, suck in a few breaths of air. Very hard to do. Plus it is hard to push the breaths out. Now when you cannot suck in enough deep breaths to get your lungs to raise your oxygen levels, you go into a state which breathing is extremely difficult and you will be taken to the hospital where you'll have to be given lung oxygen saturation treatments. Five days in a hospital because you cannot breathe.

Plus for the rest of your life you'll be on strong antibiotics. Those antibiotics will help ward off infections but they wreck havoc on your digestive tract. They kill off good bacteria in your gut which means you have a hard time digesting foods and getting the proper nutrients from that food. Thus the wasting away portion of you life starts. And when you sit on the thrown for your daily constitution you'll be able to crap through a screen mesh, easily.

Oh, I forgot the truly wonderful portion of smoking. The cancers. Yea, mom is old but she developed five types of cancers after she quit smoking. Uterine, lung, skin, brain, and breast cancers. But her will to live has been outstanding and she will die due to lack of oxygen. Heck, she never cried or worried about the cancers, but if she could have never started smoking she probably would not have had all of these medical problems. Heck, her only request is that she gets a cup of McDonalds coffee. Not bad for a gal who cannot walk without gasping for air.

God bless, 0000001. Hope you find an answer to your query. Please burrow deeply for that answer and when you find a solution, stick with it.
