Re: Give me your best tip that helped you stop smoking. DAY 5
The following are supposed to help in quitting, (I haven't had luck with any of them yet though.) :

l-theanine
niacin
chromium picolinate
gotu kola
bacopa
noopept
kratom
Mr. Happy Stack (DHA, EPA, choline, uridine)
inositol
NAC

There's science behind all of these, maybe I just haven't found the right dosage or combination.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 13833012


I forgot to add dopa bean (mucuna pruriens) to the list. I read that helps too.

Some people speculate that smoking is a form of pica, that our bodies are craving something and we are getting trace amounts of it through smoking, or, maybe nicotine is structurally similar to some nutrient that our body needs.

Evening all


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?
 Quoting: 0000001


Me and the wife went into Jeffrey Rose's office on the same night, 30 min each, $250 dollars each. That was 14 years ago, we never think about smoking again. I tried everything up to this point.

This is one center in NYC but there must be others in your area? Testimonials from others that you know or meet is the best advertising.

Note we both smoked 1.5 packs a day for 25 years or so.

I say to my self "how about some tobacco?" and "Sure but I don't do that."

And understand that electricity takes the path of least resistance and that is instant gratification.

Your multi celled organism has two options, let the brain get what it wants and get rewards, or use your conscience to tell the brain what is rewarding and what is not.

And tell that brain No we don't do that anymore we are going to do this, and this is going to be rewarding and if you refuse to reward your self tough shit because i am incontrol of this ship.

Just stop.

If you want to be done with it, be done with it.

Don't vape, don't patch, and for God's sake don't worry about waiting until you're out.

It's a rough 72 hours, but that's about it for actual withdrawal. After that, it's all about the habit. I'll certainly admit that I chewed a few coffee stirrers, but soon realized how ridiculous that was. I'm told by those who should know that I was the bitch from hell for about two weeks, so you might warn people.

I loved everything about smoking except dirty ash trays and coughing, but when it was time to quit, it was time to quit.

That time for me came 26 years ago and believe me, if I could quit, anyone can quit.
More deplorable all the time.

Re: Give me your best tip that helped you stop smoking. DAY 5
I started smoking a few years ago while hanging around friends and colleagues who smoked, and because of stress. I smoke a pack a day now. I suppose that if I really wanted to quit, I could. Not sure I want to though--yet. Sometimes I'll go a day or two without smoking and its not the urge to smoke that brings me back, but the need for that regular routine of a smoke "break". I just like this whole idea of a "break" where i can get away from things, clear my thoughts, while I exhale, long and slow, the toxic fumes. Which reminds me...it's 'bout time for a smoke break! (Stuff's really bad for you, kids, don't try this at home.)

No idea, OP. Haven't got to that part yet.

Done it a thousand times LOL
BUT definitely am setting the time to stop as they cost too much,i'm smoking more than ever,so for me STOP.
lasted 7 years one time LOL
but truth be told you can do it in a weekend if people will leave you alone--give away what remaining cigs u have,and sleep as much as THEY let you
day 3 you are detoxed and feeeeeeel great.

you identified the situation-it's a break,so try and keep it limited to just that
and then you stop.
i quit one time by cutting down to one every 4 hours like a medication- then asked myself whatthehell am i doing and stopped.
sure i went back...another time just stopped,slept it off,naps,regular sleep time whatever and that worked BUT the thoughts of a damn marlboro never left and one day...after being cleaned from nicotine for 7 years couldn't take it anymore,went out a bought a pack....will stop again tomorrow.
yeah,i mean it-they cost toooo much now and i am w/chronic bronchitis..

Re: Give me your best tip that helped you stop smoking. DAY 5
This is what I did:

I kept a full unopened pack on me at all times while quitting that way I knew that I could have a cigarette if the craving was too strong but that it was my choice not too.

Every time I tried quitting without having the option on me I failed, some weird physiological thing happened when I had the option. It might or might not work for you but might as well give it a shot.

heres the key>>>

go off it with the patch.

the key is that once you have an addiction you will always have that.

you need to replace the addition with something else.

can be anything you can get passionate about and keep your interest long term. anything at all.

Hopefully something that will benefit your long term best interests.

the key is you have to be able to be passionate about it enough to get be sort of addicted to it.

like bacon.

yoga.

sex {with a moral woman woman who loves you OF COURSE}

daily walk.

meetups.

crocheting

rearranging your furniture weekly.

all those benefit you.

Re: Give me your best tip that helped you stop smoking. DAY 5
Procrastination
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
it's not really hard at all
you don't have to "Quit", just stop . . .

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.

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
Lots of great replies, and thanks for everyones input, I read them all.


I'm going to do it.

The PLAN

I go on holiday in two weeks, and then in the second week in June, its my birthday.

So to save everyones holiday and my birthday, I will stop the day after my birthday.

I enjoy smoking and I smoke spliffs with tobacco, so I will make the most of it.

But I'm not sure what to do about the weed aspect of my smoking, I love a spliff, I have been smoking it 15+ years, and in the last year, the quality if the cannabis has increased a lot and I love a chilled one so I don't know what todo.

I do need to add something to the spliff to give it a bit of body in the plumes you inhale, someone ages ago suggest marshmallow plant.

I'm going to use this thread as a dairy for the no smoking project, so you can see me loose my mind in realtime..

And then it will be documented too, nice.

I may even treat you to a vlog you lucky sods.

Have a good saturday all.
