Quitting smoking

I'm thinking of quitting. Kind of makes me nervous just to think about it. Any tips from ex-smokers welcome.

I've never smoked, so I don't know how well these work, but I've heard good stories about "quit smoking" communities on the net. If you find the right one I'm sure you'll get tons of support

I haven't smoked for an hour or so now.... I think the first few days are probably the hardest. Never tried quitting before...

Shoot, as long as I'm quitting smoking, I might actually try eating non-beef food. Maybe even a fruit or a vegetable now and then.

I'm happy for you John. I hate people that smoke, well not hate them but I hate that they do it. They need to look at the risks and stuff.

I hope I never get addicted to smoking. It's very bad and changes you in a lot of ways. I hope you get through this and I hope you quite smoking.

I know you can hang through it John!!

A quick research in my own brain on this subject came up with the following :
  • Don't by sigarettes
  • If you do come across a sigarette..do not light it.
  • Acupuncture/laser seems to work
  • Nicotine tablets and other stuff to help you stop only seems to make people sick and doesn't really help to stop.
  • Find an alternative for smoking, when you get the urge (sex?)
  • Be carefull with sweets, some tend to get fat from quitting to smoke.
  • Be aware of your temper, people who are in the process of stopping can get nasty to others

It's just a few things that came into my mind, I hope it's helpfull, though I do realize I'm not the best person in the world to give quit smoke advice.

Good luck though!

Adding to the list..
1. don't drink Caffine drinks while you try to quit. Drink lots of water. Caffine retains the nicotine in your body.
2. Your body will flush the nicotine in 48 hours. If you can get past THAT it's all in your head.
3. Again have lots of water on hand all the time. It gives you something to do besides smoking and it helps flush your system.

The reason nicotine gun/tablets take so long is they are not flushing your system, they are cutting it back on your slowly.. If you have a strong will get it out asap. and then just deal with your head

Dave
Low will power here, But I'd quit if Sara would come help me !

Take up swimming, you can start at any pace. When you've been you'll feel fresh so you won't want to ruin it with inhaling carbon monoxide flavoured sticks!

I quit for 9 mo. one time ... I had no withdrawl symptoms what-so-ever.

Of course... I was miraculously delivered from the habit along with several other drug habits at the time, from which there also was no withdrawl symptoms of any kind, in an instant! ( fraction of a second)

This is a true story...

I know it doesn't happen to everyone, and I'm sure you wouldn't want to go through what I had to, to reach the point of total surrender, which was a necessary step for it to happen at all in my case apparently, but, I thought I would just add a little flavor to the thread... I returned to smoking cigarettes only, after 9mo., and smoke to this day...

I'm sorry to say that I can't say that I wish I didn't, because I really enjoy it, and just put up w/all the bad stuff about it... but who knows... that could change tomorrow...

I wish you luck John, but more importantly,...... happiness

sorry I don't have any good advice ... I basically just wanted to wish you luck, and tell about how I quit for 9 mo.
