The Doctor showing me the CT scan of the tumours in my lung and throat did it for me!
Treatment meant I was off work for 11 months and 2 weeks. Radiotherapy, Chemotherapy and a total of 5 operations. That was near 2 yrs ago. So far still in remission as they say.
Good luck

I had been smoking 15/20 cigarettes a day for nearly 40 years before I gave up 3 years ago. I haven't so much as taken a drag in that time. I don't know if it's available in Denmark, but ask your Doctor about Champix https://www.google.co.uk/url?sa=t&so...Jhtu3V7vm8nS8y

There are several things you have to consider before making an attempt to starve yourself from the intake of cigarette smoke nutrients...

1) Nutrient intake.
When stopping smoking your body needs to substitute for the nutrients that it gets from cigarettes. You must change to a more nutritious diet i.e. lots of green leaf vegetables, and well balanced cooked meals.

2) Associative habits: Coffee, sweets, fatty foods....
These habits will always lead to a cigarette craving. get rid of all those habits that pull you into a desire to light up another one. Go for a cup of tea for a change.. Skip sweets.. eat salads with lemon sauce for a change in your metabolism, it will confuse the system and will weaken the desire for a cigarette.

3) As soon as you make a decision to stop smoking you must make these changes that will steer you away from the craving for smoke..
And... It will be helpful to stay away from smokers for the first week.

Remember, Cigarette smoke contains good minerals as well as very bad ones...
You must support your body needs for nutrient intake while making the transition..
Good luck.

The way I quit tobacco was that I found the whimpiest cigarettes available. And those turned out to be Alpine Blue's with Menthol. I was able to quit sucessfully but it wasn't easy on those. There was one day when I had my last smoke that I decided to stop smoking on when the cravings were both strong but not entirely uncontrollable. Important thing to do is to simply don't pick up another one. If you can manage to do that you'll brake the cycle and once you've broken the cycle within a 24 hour period you won't want another one.

Unfortunately cigarette manufacturers do not post the nicotine content online.

I would really recommend you rethink getting into vaping, it can help you quit. I've got a iStick Pico and I buy Vegetable Glycerine and Nicotine in bulk online. I couldn't be happier. Its much more healthier than cigarettes and it helps with my depression.

I'm currently on 2mg/100mL of nicotine/vg which is practically nothing, the best thing is I can add more vegetable glycerine and quit any time I want to by slowly tapering off the amount of nicotine until there is none left. With 1mg/100mL you can barely feel anything and because I do the mixing at home (with a spoon and syringe) I can go all the way down to 0.1mg/100mL

I'll quit vaping someday but its pretty hard to want to quit something that is pretty much harmless. The weirdoes will tell you that vaping is just as dangerous as cigarettes, shows how much they know about vaping, with vaping you are boiling quite literally two ingredients, vegetable glycerine and nicotine with a ceramic/pure cotton fabric vaporiser, and no ceramic dust is not inhaled when you vape even with the cheapest cartridges that I use. That is just more scareware.

Besides if it wasn't for vaping I would probably be doing caffeine and sugar and we both know how dangerous those are.

Look's like i got something for a start, and thanks all for the very usefull answers until now.

As i "speak" i am also starting to read the book suggested in post #2; interessting read i must say, but as the writer mention it's kind off hard to understand at the beginning of the book... Let's see how it turns out.

I should have been writing (but didn't dare!) that i will as much as possible (not 100% convinced) that i will NOT use any pills, drugs or like to stop this smoking thing -Case is that allmost every pill or chewinggum or like, allmost all of them have some bad side effects, but then again smoking have a lot of side effects! Hmmm... it's hard to decide what to belive sometimes...

Maybee i quit this evening? -Let's see how it goes ???

Jesper.

I tried many times and just couldn't quit. Then about 17 years ago I tried the patch and the antidepresent Zyban. Well I would go a week and then pick them back up . Then I started walking about an hour every morning andt that helped me get stick with it . About a month later I gave up using the patch and zyban but kept up th ewalking. Two months later I was still nicotine free and had actualy lost a few pounds. Then a few months later I read a little article about wemen who start3ed an exercise program when they tried to quit smoking. Those who started exercising had a sucess rate twice as high as those who didn't adapt an exercise program and gained far less weight.
