For me it was adding up how much money I would save if I quit.

It worked!

I have not had a smoke in 34 years.

Re: Give me your best tip that helped you stop smoking. DAY 5
It's much easier if you're not around other smokers.

I finally quit for good when I was secluded on a farm, with no one to bum a smoke from when having a coffee or beer.

I live a few miles from my friends, and no one smokes at work pretty much, so that's not going to impact me much, but I understand the importance of staying the fuck away.

Re: Give me your best tip that helped you stop smoking. DAY 5
I figured out I could either mindlessly smoke for the rest of my life, or I could consciously not smoke for the rest of my life.

Because when you quit, you are consciously aware of it every time you want one.

If you smoke, you don't think about it at all.

Or, at least, that is me.

I have quit for four years, I have quit for six months, but eventually, I think I can have just one.

I just quit a week ago now, again.

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 . . .

thanks hf you can "take a break" without smokes too sometimes. bring a pencil and draw a picture while you "break" chew the end of the pencil. It's funny how different things taste without tobacco. good luck, if you need it

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.

You have to quit cold turkey. No patches, no Nicorette gum, no vaping. I smoked my last cigarette march 13. It’s the longest I’ve been without a smoke since high school.

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?

A pencil in your hand to simulate holding a cigarette and chewing gum nonstop. It will make your jaws hurt but it works. For me it did, anyway.

greensmartliving ecig, cheap, taste almost like a real cig, and you can wean yourself off.
First day, smoke 1/2 pack less, within a few days, I was down from a pack a day, to 6 or 7 a day. Now I'm down to 3 real cigs a day.
Soon I won't be smoking real cigs at all. Tried to light my last one last night, tasted like I licked a telephone pole.
Just losing my taste for real cigs.
I started with the 24 mg cartridge. But it lasted 8 days, so very little nicotine now.

All right. So I had tried quitting cold turkey several times, tried the patch, tried the lozenges. Even tried vaping. Nothing worked. The closest I got to quitting was on the patch. So I decided to try the patch again, except this time I wasn't going to follow their step down program. I was going to stay on it as long as necessary, and step down at MY OWN pace. I would have stayed on the patch forever if need be. The patch didn't bother me at all once I got past the initial itchiness so I didn't mind. I didn't step down at all for like 6 months, and then after A YEAR I finally quit the patch entirely, and felt totally fine. No urge to smoke anymore.

Anybody who says the only way to quit is cold turkey is wrong. I'm living proof that is not true. I went nuts when I tried to quit cold turkey. But everybody is different.

Good advice thanks, i think initially im going to go cold turkey, and look at patches if I can't take the heat any more.

It's exciting what state my minds going to be, as it's been very calm lately.

Re: Give me your best tip that helped you stop smoking. DAY 5
Vaping...

I smoked for 30 years and never touched another cigarette after I got my first e-cig. Come August, that will be 8 years ago.

I started with a good tobacco flavored juice and added a bit of menthol. It was a year before I could vape any other flavor.

I had tried everything before that. I never wanted another cigarette after I started vaping. It's about 4 times cheaper also once you get the initial cost out of the way.

Good luck with however you decide to do it!
