    Cool How to Quit Smoking: Tips & Tricks

    I have to quit....I like smoking, but I know my health is suffering. I have been a willing partner & slave to these coffin nails for something like 14 years. :dsad ...Though now that I am facing the reality of actually quitting, I feel like I am going to miss this 'reliable' friend. How can I enjoy my morning coffee...my beers..after food, after sex., painting, art, music etc..without my tobacco?!.. Life will be miserable.

    Should I invest in those patches or gum etc...or just go cold turkey with immense bouts of will & determination? I wish I had never started smoking in my teens. It is completely intergrated in my lifestyle & habits. How the hel am I going to stop?..

    Dear Skadi,

    from what I have seen, I think the best way is to just..stop..!

    I know it sounds childish, but I've seen some friends of mine trying various methods over the years but they always relapse.

    One of them, who was a very heavy smoker (more like a cigarette-junky, actually ), woke up one day and decided that he had enough.

    He quit smoking immediately and began to exercise (body building).

    Now, not only has he not smoked again, but the mere smell of it makes him sick. He also quit drinking on the side.

    A couple of other people have quit the same way.

    It is a matter of will power.

    I know that you would expect a more "proffesional" opinion, but I think that the best way to do it is to get over it in your head first.

    In your case, I think the fact that you live away from urban madness, and that you also have a healthy diet, should help.

    I think that smoking, drinking and obesity are mostly phenomena that are encouraged by the urban lifestyle.

    So, good luck with your efforts!

    Like Blood Axis said, if you want to stop, just stop. If you think you are depriving yourself of something then your efforts to stop will surely be doomed to failure. Still, it might be worth giving your lungs the rest for the couple of weeks, or however long you manage to hold out.. Best of Luck.

    I stopped smoking only when I decided I really wanted to stop. It sounds obvious, but it wasn't until I decided as a free choice and not because I "should" that I could see my way clear to succeed. Bad health effects were not a sufficient motivation; rather, it was the after-smell on my body, breath and clothes; the smeary color on my books and computer screen; and the mega-dollars I was spending each month on cigarettes rather than Skadheim CDs.

    As for whether you should quit cold turkey or with the help of patches, etc., you might find it helpful to get your doctor's opinion next time you are in for a checkup. I quit cold turkey, but that's just me.

    I do not smoke Marlboros, but don't they have shorter cigarettes than normal? That could help someone quit, but they probably have shorter filters or release more nicotine because the perforation.

    You have to think all the benefits you get by quitting smoking:

    14 years is long time, but you are still relatively young, and not much irreversible damage has happened. If you stop now your body starts to recover and your physical condition improves drastically. And think all the money that you save.

    However, if you continue smoking or just postpone the quitting in the future it is harder and harder to quit, and eventually there will be irreversible changes in your body and organs. That means you will probably suffer more from various sicknessess at older age.

    There will be situations when one wants to have a nervesmokes etc. but it is possible to deal with them without relapsing. Doing physical exercises also helps. Exercising may even become healthy replacing action for smoking.

    Happy new year dear Skadi

    I haven't smoked a cigarette since 2 years and I drink coffees and beers every day .
    For people like us who are addicted to nicotine there is ONE solution (not two or three!!). To suck nicotine tablets ..and to keep on drinking !! Don't take patches (or gums) because when you'll be drunk you'll need nicotine and won't feel satisfied. . Nicotine tablets have exactly the same effect than strong cigarettes (without the health troubles) so you won't feel frustrated after a good beer or a cup of coffee. ..

    If you are weak-minded doesn't mean that everyone else is too. It is always possible to quit smoking without substitute shit, like nicotine tablets. Changing cigarettes for expensive nicotine tablets is not quitting, it is only attempt to go easy way.

    There is plenty of health troubles with nicotine.
