    Try sport. If you quite smoking, you'll gain weight; you'll have to make some sport anyway.

    Cravings ocur when ciggarettes pop into your mind. The trick is to forget about the cigarette by thinking about or doing something else. Do that each time you think about smoking. That is how you get through the first week.

    Giving up smoking

    I am trying to give up smoking. Have any members previously quit this habit? If so how did you do it? Can you recommend any books/CDs, etc?

    I really don't know why I have smoked for so long (ten years), but it's a disgsuting habit and I'm determined to quit.

    I was smoking for more than 10 years and I quit cold turkey. Been smokeless for...hmmm...let me see...nearly 2 1/2 years now.

    If you ask me, that's the only way to quit. Reducing, nicotine patches, etc, will not work for long, because ultimately it's a matter of willpower since it's mostly a psychological rather than a physical addiction

    I know, I'm not very helpful, anyone could have told you that... :o

    I never got into it. I'll smoke one every now and then when I drink. I want to quit altogether though, but I don't want to use any drugs. I'm determined to use willpower. I just don't know when to start..

    Not at all! If that's your advice, then I appreciate it. With me it's a matter of occupying my mind - so long as I can keep myself distracted, then I should be able to do it.

    If it's keeping your mind off that you worry about, then find another hobby to keep your mind occupied. Puzzles, painting, ships in bottles, etc. Suckers/gum/hard candy might help with the oral fixation issue.

    I don't smoke by the way.

    You do it one cigarette at a time by thinking about something else when you feel like a smoke. When you think about something else the cravings stop. Do use nicotine supplements though to make it more bearable. It gets easier and easier each cigarette you give up so enjoy the suffering while it lasts.

    "Cold turkey" seems to be the best way. I know several people who've done it with this method and succeeded.

    Good luck! I would suggest keeping yourself busy, doing things with friends or chores that must be done. Maybe try finding a good book to read too.
