i've found it's much easier to avoid smoking when I STOP BUYING PACKS.
although cigs are relatively cheap here (marlboro lights < 4.25), the money really adds up.

also, i refuse to smoke in my car- which is where i used to do it the most.

i really been able to stop smoking as much as i used to, but i still smoke maybe 5 cigarettes a week- more if i'm drunk. which lately i have been.

Stay away from that Chantax stop smoking pill.
The side effects are not a good thing. Worse in some people than others

I quit smoking April 27th, cold turkey. This is my third attempt, the first was the patch, and the second was also cold turkey.

This time I did the "team" quitting. My girlfriend and I both quit at the same time. I think it helped to have someone call me a dumbfuck when I wanted to go get a pack of cigarettes.

A matter of note, this time around I wound up suffering from Shortness of Breath after quitting. Turns out quitting smoking can cause massive anxiety. So now I'm on Xanax. I also started drinking...

I don't know if I'm healthier now or not.

I smoked for several years, then got tired of it and "weened" myself off. I first started by not smoking in the spot that I smoked the most, my car. Then I cut down at breaks and at home. It took some time but I eventually got down to 1 cig a day and gave it up that way. I'm smoking again due to the divorce and bankruptcy and other issues. But I'll quit again someday.

A guy I know quit when he had been smoking for over 40 years. He got this copper bracelet thing as a gift or something and didn't realize that it was making the cigs taste bad and quit that way.

I heard that pill is bad for you, I know a bunch of people that were on it and they started to have suicidal thoughts and got off it right away.

Find a comfortable way for you to quit and then just do it that way. It's hard as hell, but it can be done.

My experience was catching myself going a long period without a cigarette. I got so caught up with a fun activity that I went about 12 hrs without realizing i didnt have a cigarette or even think about it.

So try to spend time around non-smokers, then when you get distracted enough and you realize you went x long without a cig try to keep that streak going.

Its a mind trick, sort of like cheating for a head start.

That was nearly 10 years ago, so that 12 hr period has literally turned into 10 years completely smoke free. (not counting occasion ganja use)

I felt really stupid doing it, especially since I didn't really believe in God at the time, and I've never believed in that kind of God at all, but I wanted to quit smoking so I was willing to try anything.

The last cigarette I smoked was the end of a pack I found in my car on a Thursday of July, 2003. I'm not saying that God did it, in fact I think I'd just never wanted to quit like that before.

Coincidentally, the woman that told me that started smoking again a couple of years ago.
Seriously, Obamas going to make it harder to smoke in the military. There needs to be a re-alignment of what is right in the FDA. Smoking would be much easier if that filter wasn't on the cig.
