Hey all i want to quit smoking just want to know what others have done to quit

22 Oct
I basically just smoked less and in two weeks just quit. I didn't hang around any smokers to avoid temptation and after a month i hardly even thought about it. It's so weird not being a smoker anymore lol

Quitting was easy once I convinced myself I actually wanted to quit, instead of just saying oh I'm trying to quit. Car rides are the worse lol but have gum ready and I just remind myself how bad they really are. Cigarette free since July :)

I've tried quitting and failed countless times! But know I'm a light smoker and crave lotsa junk food.

I read "the Easy Way to Stop Smoking" great book I highly recommend it. You may say how can a book help but I assure you quitting is just a matter of your mind being in the right place and looking at things the right way and this book helps a lot with that.

was at a pack a day, Smoke free two years now.

I quit smoking about 3months ago after smoking everyday for 6years.

It just struck me that every time I smoke I'm taking away pieces of my life..and if you only live once, I wanna live for the longest possible time so I just went cold turkey. Like don't say you'll quit after the pack is done or on monday or whatever. Just throw away the cigarettes you have left.

Everytime I needed to smoke I did something else instead like drink coffee. The cravings do go away eventually. Still want to smoke sometimes but it's not difficult to say no now. No regrets.. can't believe what difference it actually made during cardio.

Just decide you want to quit and remind yourself why you want to quit. Like to see your kids grow up one day or to even have kids or whatever you like

Good luck!

Quit 16 months ago after smoking for 30 years! You have to make your mind up that you want it, understand that you will have cravings and that is ok. Don't worry about weight or other things.  Take it day it day! Good luck; you can do it!

I have been smoke and caffeine free for 10 days now, haven't felt this good or had this much energy in 20 years. Every time I got the urge to light up, I would do push ups and sit ups until I was so sore and winded that I couldn't smoke even if I had one to light up.    10 days later I have found myself jogging 3 miles a day and doing 200 push ups and 100 sit ups a day. Along with some small changes in my diet and I am starting to see definition in my muscles that hasn't been there since I was a teenager. I have so much energy and feel great, not to mention the money saved and cannot see myself EVER going back to my destructive lifestyle.

Congrats.  I only smoked for 2 and a half years but the way I quit was convincing myself I wanted to quit. You have to believe it to achieve it. Cold turkey stopped and a year smoke free now.

Hi Andrew, , you can do it mate. I used to smoke eh, started in the Navy, when I was 15, yes 15. Kept smoking until, finally, after gradually cutting down, I stopped after a big Christmas work party 12 1/2 years ago. Took up running after that, playing hockey, teaching my kids to be fit ,...... etc, and have never had one since. You can do it too mate. Guts, goals, determination, help and encouragement from us allon here, you will be right. All the best mate.

What's working for me right now is not laying the whole concept of quitting completely on my shoulders. Instead, I just tell myself I'm not smoking at certain places and certain times. Which is working pretty well. I pretty much don't smoke at all while I'm at work except for on lunchwhich I'll be completely cutting that out soon. Then I'll move on to not smoking outside of work, etc.
