Default Quit Smoking

Hi Rino

I smoked for 24 yrs, used the gum to quit. The trick was to convience your brain you were getting relief when you chewed the gum. It's been 5 yrs now. I still think of it as being addicted, One smoke and it will all start over again. Still one of the best things I ever did.

Good Luck
Bob2

Default Thanks for the support guys

Hey guys, thanks for the moral support! This sure is difficult...how long do these cravings last for? Or should I say, when does it start to get easier?

One smoke can kickstart smoking regularly again?

I smoked on and off for a few years until my son was born. I quit right there and then. I didn't want to subject him to the *******ing smoke but mostly I wanted to be around to see him (and now him and her) grow up.
Then I got addicted to pizza...

For me it was years
I haven't smoked for 22 years now. (I was a 40-a-day man).

The way I eventually learned to control the cravings was to avoid the situations where I previously used to "light up". Of course you can't avoid them all, but avoiding some of them takes some stress out of the equation, and leaves you better at coping with the unavoidable's..

In a nutshell: change your habits. Men in particular are naturally habitual.

Good luck

PS I can still remember the tastes of various brands, but the thought of them makes me feel sick now.

I quited smoking around 2 years ago. I was thinking of that and one day woke up and said to myself that it was the DAY. I carried a packet of cigarretes with me all the time, for around 2 months, just to relief any stress that smokers have when they don't have cigarretes at hand. But for me it was not difficult at all.
The hardest part is when you take your coffee, you just donīt know where to put your hands .

YMMV, but it really pays off .
