I suggest that, consider you friends and boyfriend will left you. If you don't stop smoking. Also, try to avoid smoke during stress. Bye

I started smoking when I was 15 and to be honest I was a chain smoker which was pretty gross.. I didn't like it at all I live here in Indiana and the Steel Mills are a couple miles away so the air isn't yes freshest here but I went to North Carolina for a week and let new tell you the air is so much cleaner I hated the smell of smoke.. it was gross so I quit about a month and then I got really sick to the point that smoking just tasted so nasty and I kept...

I've stop smoking for 6 years now. My advice is start with smoking less each day, as you slowly get your self off of it. Your body will get used to not having to smoke as much and soon not needing it at all. Also try not being in the same room as people that are smoking until you know you can controle your want for one. only you can help yourself. That's how i quite smoking. Good luck.

Girl I still smoke and im working out. Cutting back though. When i want a cigarette, ill grab some sunflower seeds instead... or ill grab some weights. Its gonna take time for the both of us because ill admit it, I LOVE smoking. It really takes the edge off. But they say working out will do the same. :) Good Luck.

I quit smoking weed after 3 years, weed is also mentally addictive and it is also bad because it made lazy to work out and if i worked out i would smoke and then get the munchies.

My husband is a big smoker too and i would always catch contact and get munchies with him.. he is incarcerated now so once hes out he has to stop or he will MTR.. so with the stress of him being gone, me tryna stop smokin, and stop eatin crazy on this diet tip.. the only outlet there is for me is exercise but its still hard for me to quit feenin cigerettes..

I went one cig at a time. So if I've had my lunch and fancied one instead of going straight away I'd wait 10 mins, and have a cup of tea to fill the time. The next time 20 mins and so on until I was skipping a whole fag break. I wud smoke at specific times especially cause of work and obviously meal times. So this really helped me to create longer gaps between each one and eventually cut it out completely. 
Good luck it's a hard habit to kick! Try to think of things to distract urself and keep busy.
