Unforunately things dont go that way
holding the cig, its actually pretty tempting to just give it a try if you havent done so. (not saying ive done it)

Yes, you are right, but sometimes, we end up trying different things, part of growing up is learning from mistakes.
Once youre in, its hard to get out, just find that motivation, be it a bet, realization, or risk

i've heard of people going to naturalpath places and buying herbs to smoke. they start buy rolling tobacco into a mix then cut back until they're using just the herb, then kick smoking all together.

I haven't smoked in over a year. Whenever I wanted a smoke I would just eat whatever the hell I wanted. This went on for about 3 weeks and I gained probably 10 pounds. After that I just wasn't a pussy and sucked it up. Hell yeah I get cravings every once and a while but hell alcoholics want a drink every once a while to. Main thing is you have to WANT to quit, if you Kind of want to, or your g.f is making you quit you WONT QUIT! Now do it!

There's no fast and easy way of quitting smoking, but the method that I've seen that worked the fastest and most permanent would be through taking Champix.

It works by blocking transmitters in your brain that corresponds to nicotine. Two of my friends have both quit by using Champix and they were both heavy smokers before. Both of them have stayed smoke-free for about a year now and none of them even had a drag even when they've been drinking.

There are side-effects though, such as crazy vivid dreams and you will be constantly tired for a little while. I would definitely talk to a doctor if you're interested.

Only had 2 smokes today

That's my lowest since I started weaning myself off the nicotine, today was even quite stressful.

Not setting a date makes complete sense it theory, but in practice I think that would have a higher likelihood of relapse, remember there is a mental and physical component to smoking and bracing your mind for the drastic change helps somehow. That's just my experience.

I smoked regularly since I was 16 and got worse when I was legal to buy smokes.
I would almost smoke a pack a day but control myself to half a pack a day.

Honestly the first week is the hardest.

My uncle who is like 40 was a 2 pack a day smoker and quit totally by puffing on the e-cig
and after he broke 3 e-cigs he totally stopped smoking.

Not just any e-cig though

we bought a bunch of eGo-T which they sell here for like $70-$100 and you get the liquid seperate.

If anyone interested I can do a group buy for RS and get liquid as well. I used to mass order them for suppliers here. E-cigs are hard to bring in and the e-liquid is illegal to bring in because it has nicotine.

i had an ecig, it was more of a novelty item for me than anything.
making O rings was all i used it for LOL.
i had the one that looks like a cigeratte and its black. got it for $50. bunch of my friends bought some one off him too. when i tried to get a better deal cause there's so many of us buying it, he wouldnt budge on the price. but he was down to do a discount on the egoT. mentioned that he gets it for cheap.
the ecig was a hit and miss with my circle of friends, about 50% of the people that bought one quit smoking.
probably gonna get an egoT and try again.

It's all in the liquid, the cheap shit u get from china makes gross vapors that linger in ur mouth.
Liquid from Canada taste cleaner but a bit pricier

where do you buy your bottles from?

Gave the cheap dealextreme e-cigs a try and they work great but cartridges dont last long. Apparently you can refill them with the bottle.

I'm down to about 1 or 2 a day, although I've only been smoking for about 8 months. I think the level of addiction varies from genetics and luckily for me it's quite easy to quit. Like people said, you just have to want to quit and have the willpower to resist. Good luck to everyone though.

8 months is not an addiction, thats a habit. Smoking 1 or 2 a day is still smoking.
You did not quit.

fifteen smokes a day average for about five years - I haven't had one in six weeks.

The cravings are still pretty brutal.
