I've posted about this demon here before. If I searched I bet I posted the same thing 10 YEARS ago. Hey, I try . So I made it through day one without killing someone and then preceding to shit down their throat. Yeah, that's how bad it is... All crazy joking aside , it's been tolerable this time. I just want it to stick! Any advice besides not killing and pooping down peeps throats? icon_lol

Want to quit! Its the single most important thing - Find reasons why you want to quit, and write them down. Put that list up on a refrigirator or something like that. Forget all the nonsense about aids - over 70 percent of those that quits, do it without any kind of band-aids or anything else. At least in Denmark.

If you need any suggestions as to why you need to stop smoking, feel free to ask

Never been addicted (nor smoked more than a couple) but just want to wish you the best. Maybe take up some kind of cardio exercise sport/program so that you can see the benefits for yourself? That might help keep you motivated (and blow off excess steam.)

I'm coming up on 7 years in November.  I told myself that if my body needed the drug, then I would give it that and work on breaking the habit.  For a couple months I used the patch sparingly.  Whenever I felt I needed it and I worked on breaking the habit of smoking.  I would chew gum or go running or do pushups.  After about 2 months I stopped the patch too.  Haven't looked back and can't believe I ever smoked to begin with.  Good luck you can do it!

I'm at about 6 or 7 years myself.  Honestly, the best way to quit is to just quit.  I tried the gums, the wellbutrin and others.  But they never took hold.  Eventually though, I just got tired of the smell and constantly being out of breath.  

Give it about a month.  Then hang out with someone who smokes.  If you don't get immediately embarrassed after realizing what your non-smoking friends had to deal with when you were around and a smoker, I'll be surprised.

I passed my three year anniversary in July after having smoked for 18 years. I used the Nicorette lozenges to soften the transition, which did help me out quite a bit, but everybody's right in saying the desire to quit is the biggest factor. Good luck, it can be done!

I've never smoked, but have had friends and family have a lot of success quitting by using e-cigs or vaping.  Have you tried that?  Best of luck.

Good luck, man!  You're right to not to beat yourself up about one slip-up, negative reinforcement never works.  Just keep trying, be mindful of it and you can do it!

I had "only" smoked for 5 years and still had serious trouble kicking the habit.  It took me several tries over quite a while, but I was eventually able to do it.  I think they say you're more likely to be successful each time you try.

I recently tried a ecig just to see. I think that might be a decent crutch for a bit . Buying this house and looking for a job while busting my ass at my current job isn't making thinks less stressful.
