Everytime there's a craving, I'll try to do pushups. It'll make me tired, keep my mind of it and maybe give it some negative reinforcement.
Just keep trying man. Brushing your teeth every time you want one may help too although that can be difficult depending on where you are

Chew lots and lots and lots of gum.

160 days since last cig here. Was using nic gum for a week. Then started vaping. Just vaping really low nic now but eventually will goto no nic. I probably had 3 drags from a buddy's smoke in the 160 day time frame and it tasted like crap and couldnt stand it!

40 days. going strong. nothing even close to a relapse.

admittedly i cheat by smoking weed. e cigs, canadian or american work pretty decent for me when i do get a true craving. hit that thing a few times and i'm good. and that's on the rare side because i didn't wanna straight replace smoking with ecigs.

I just had so many reasons to quit smoking so I had to quit. Wifey put up with it for years, baby on the way and coming close to a pack a day after 12 years of smoking u can imagine how it felt going to the gym.

In the middle of early spring cleaning. Haven't smoked in the house/garage/car for 9.5 months.

Holy fuck I have a lot of smoking paraphernalia. 15 Zippo's, 30 Bics, 20 ashtrays, wicks, flint, fluid, etc....

Haven't gone through the cars yet. I'm pretty sure I'll find another dozen lighters and a few emergency packs.

On week 2 after quitting for 4 months last year and then starting again in the summer. I'm finding the withdrawal pangs rather easy this time, but the hunger at night is driving me nuts.

It took me multiple attempts to quit. I found the withdrawal pangs lessened substantially each attempt, and eventually the only really difficult time was early in the morning. You can conquer the cravings! Good luck!

I realized quitting cold turkey wasn't working so I've significantly cut down.

I've always smoked (well since I've been in Asia) Marb Reds, switched to lights, but nowadays have been disliking the taste. I'm now on menthols with the crush ball (and I hate menthols) so added incentive to eventually quit.

Hope everyone is doing better!!

Nicorette mini lozenges are the way to go. If you've tried the oldstyle mints or gums and hated it, give this a shot. Takes about 8-10 minutes to dissolve and absorb and no real desire to smoke... I've been off for about 2 years now.

Day 10.

Been a good run so far kicking the habit cold turkey.
I know I've just started but feels good knowing that I've made it even this far. Thank you willpower.




Why did I ever started smoking?

this is my second run at quitting smoking. first go around i quit with no hesitation for 4 months; that was 4 years ago. the more i think about it, the more it scares me that i've been smoking over 1/3 of my life. it's day 4 now and so far the only problem i've run into is having trouble sleeping.

why did i suddenly want to quit again? i randomly ran into these ads and they scared the shit out of me. plus smoking also hurts your gains at the gym

This is my second time I quit, I've quit for 2 months now with no cravings at all. The first time I quit I read "Allen Carr's Easyway to Stop Smoking" and it helped but I was partying way too much at the time and needless to say I got pressured into smoking again. I read the book a second time and I haven't smoked a cigarette since January 5, I guess it was good timing too since I heard prices of cigarettes are going up.

My Dad called me yesterday to tell me that he had not had a cigarette in 10 days and his cravings are near non-existent. A huge accomplishment for him as he has smoked for 43 years. I think that's a nice bit of inspiration for other smokers looking to quit.

Just read a bunch of posts above and did the math, I've also been smoking for roughly 1/3 of my life.

That's fucking scary.

Quit for a while then hung out with a buddy who smoked all the time, then ended up back in the grind.

New years resolution was to quit smoking but I've only cut down by 5 ish cigs a day.

How did you guys do it. Cold turkey just doesn't cut it for me I tried but ended up so short tempered. Cutting down seems like it only does so much cause everything's so habitual now. I have smokes around the same times everyday. I can't do push-ups or brush my teeth all day. Too much gum makes my jaws sore

Am I just making too many excuses ?

Fuck cigarettes are the dumbest things ever invented

I smoked for ~8ish years
one day i just decided to cold turkey it
not gonna lie, the first few days were rough but you pretty much have to will yourself to suck it up.

also helped that i stopped hangin out with my buddies who smoked a lot at that time. I think if i still hung out with them a lot, it probably would've been damn near impossible to quit.

iirc, i think i just played fifa against the second lowest setting on the cpu, nothin like burying those bitches in goals while i rage internally and pretty much tried my hardest to ignore the people/things that pissed me off
imo, once you get past that two week mark its smooth sailing in terms of cravings. Social cues and habits take a while but if you keep at it it's easy.


but now i recently started vaping LOL, lowest nic content but i think i might be starting to develop a habit.

i don't smoke, but i got addicted to e-cig after 1 month.

whenever i stopped for more than a day, i would get cold sweats, can't sleep at night, super restless.

this anxiety kinda feeling crawling/clawing in my chest and limbs as i lay there.

it lasted a week, then i was ok. and then i didn't fill up that e-cig again.

25mg... dangerous.

the feeling is almost like claustrophobia, minus the fear. but that physical feeling of being trapped and unable to break out. like the worst itch that is not scratchable. deep inside your core lol.

Don't E-cigs advertise that it is not addicted at all? I though that's the whole point...
