Its quite simple. First 2 weeks are hard, then it just gets easier so its not that long time. Nicotine addiction its not that strong, its more of a habbit. Many different ppl quitted smoking, it doesnt require any special abilities.

I would start with finding yourself something to treat yourself like idk candy. You want to try these fancy plasters with mannitol, they seemed to help my friends a lot. Also I wouldn't drop the habbit immediately, reduce your smoking greatly but don't try to go from 1 pack/day straight to 0 for you will most likely fail. The worst urge passes after about 2 or 3 weeks, despite that you might feel sudden need of smoking or at least do something associated with smoking for long months. My gf compared what happens between ~day 2 and week 3 to constant period, you will probably feel mix of groundless frustration and apathy. After that comes what I would call catharsis, you feel "clean", motivated and full of energy for couple of weeks, what makes further quitting much easier. That's all imo, gl, hard challenge but definitelly worth it.

The e-cigarette was invented in 2003 by Chinese pharmacist Hon Lik, who initially developed the device to serve as an alternative to conventional smoking. One year to go, then it has been 20 years since it got invented. One of the first cigarillos that were smoked in Europe as far as I know, was in Sevilla around the 16th century.

Mega hard for me, tried to do it like 5 times. Last time was 3 weeks, then i went to party, and cigs are good addition to alcohol, so i told my self to smoke at party only, tommorow i still smoke-free. After that day craving became unbearable, even harder than first 3 days, so i broke up. Still planning to try again. It's not really advice, just my experience. Hope you'll succeed. Good luck!

I haven't smoked for 7 days. Tip 1: Escape what reminds you of smoking. 2: Drink ice water whenever you think about smoking 3: brush your teeth always after eating, decreases cravings after meals. You must remember that 1 cigarette will kill all your effort, come on buddy you can do it

yes since 3 months 1. first week is though but not too bad 2. you will encounter situations where craving is really hard because you were always smoking before in these situations. but if you manage to not smoke in these situations for 2-3 times you wont even think about smoking in these circumstances (for example going to a bar with friends and drinking) edit: 1. is short term, 2. long term)
2022-01-21 13:07
going cold turkey is hard your much better off slowing down, when you get a craving wait an hour and gradually increase that time you have for a craving eventually you will feel you don't want to have a smoke

That's possible but actually slowing down is way tougher since the importance of each cigarette is rising and addiction isn't going anywhere while you do this. But it is possible as I said.

I first toned down from smoking pack a day to 2-3 a day, then 1 a day and then after i could do with just 1-2 a day and be fine i stopped completely, i also used snus then which was the hardest part. I stopped snus cold turkey at the same time, but what did it for me was not seeing anyone and not going out. I stayed home for 2-3 weeks going straight home from uni and playing chill games with my friends where i knew i didn't get angry as easily as in competitive games. Now i haven't used any snus for 4 years and i smoke small cigars like twice a month when im drinking, been doing this for 3 years and i have absolutely no problems not smoking when im sober. I purely do it for fun, because i like enjoying the small things like this, no need to be a saint :D My advice would be to find your own way of doing it, what suits you. Stop making excuses and think of the best way for you to avoid smoking. For me the slow approach was best, since i had tried to stop cold turkey like 6 times before and it didn't work for me.

Did it in April 2020. Went pretty much cold but lockdown helped. EDIT: I was on a downward trend since 2019, going from one pack a day to one pack every four or five days, when I actually stopped I was smoking three or four per day Try avoiding social situations where you'd want to smoke on the first weeks/months, after sometime you will be ok, but for a long time ahead there will be situations where you'll still crave for one, just accept this fact. Drink a glass of water whenever you fell the crave for one. Try and change your day to day routine, to fill the gaps, or change triggers, that wold normally make you want one smoke. Keep in mind the benefits (not only the health ones), food and beverages will taste better, you'll save up some money, you won't have to worry to keep everything dry, less things on your pocket, etc One thing that helped me, but that's pretty specific to me, is to adopt the habit to only smoke outdoors and not doing anything else (like driving), even at home, that would make grabbing a cigarette actually be a hassle sometimes

Also very specific to me, is never saying "I will never smoke again" but "I just don't want it now"
2022-01-21 13:24
I stopped 3 months ago, and the first week is the hard part for me. After that you wont feel such strong cravings anymore. And for me what really worked was when i hit the 2 day mark, then i was like there is no point in going back now.
2022-01-21 13:22
Drinking a lot of water and trying to read something helped me, or doing something that keeps you not thinking about them. Try to resist the temptation especially when you drink alcoohol or you party, that's the worst part of it. Also you'll start feeling better and you will realize that all of it is worth, so that feeling will help a lot when it comes. I have 2 years in june.
2022-01-21 13:27
Hey bro, this might be long but I want to help you. The simple cliche truth is you have to be patient and be strong, but I will make it more realistic. Deep down you need to realize why you are quitting, and that reason must hold. If you don't want to quit at your core, then you will never be able to do it properly. Remember that it's a slow poison that makes old age terrible, and most of us make the mistake of thinking "I'm okay now, how bad can it get". The least that most of us can ask for is old age free from ridiculous health problems, being able to sleep properly, and a quick easy death. Smoking will not allow any of that. Sometimes the reasons are even more simple. If you have women around you that you like, they can smell this shit but you can't. All the time. Sounds terrible isn't it? Or if you have kids, your body/breath will always carry some toxic crap. Wouldn't you want your kids to have the best possible chance at life, rather than hampering them at a developing age? The quitting effects are different for different people. Some lose most of the cravings within 10 days, others need 3 months before they even start feeling normal. Sometimes the same person will have different effects during different quitting attempts. Also, your circumstances and how you feel psychologically are also influential here. The key is to not think of the time period, that will only make it worse. Don't think "oh I haven't smoked for 30 hours", or "damn I am gonna feel like shit for X more days/weeks/months". This will only make it difficult. Your brain will tell you otherwise, it might even try to reason with you and make you give yourself excuses and shit. Remember, that is not you talking; that is your brain trying to deal with withdrawal effects and giving you bullshit, trying to plead and sweet talk you. Instead of thinking of the time past or the huge future without smoking, just keep yourself busy or distracted. Then every time the temptation comes up every few hours, that's the only time you have think about it and deal with it. Just take a break and calm yourself, eat something, chew gum, anything that works. Maybe meditate by speaking to yourself that this is just after effects, you are not going to be a fool. Most people think of a greater period of time and make it hard for themselves. Don't do that, just deal with temptations as and when they come up. There might be some things that will affect other things in life, but temporarily. Maybe not for you, like I said it's different for different people. Examples: Sleep could be interrupted. Concentration might be worse. Certain points in the day will be very restless or anxiety-filled. If you associate smoking with something, then you might have to quit doing that too (smoking after meals, with coffee, with alcohol, in certain social company, etc, could be anything, it's very individual). To be honest, even non-addicted casual smokers tend to want it with alcohol. Quitting alcohol (or greatly reducing it) isn't bad either; two birds with one stone, eh? And if it starts to affect work, take some time off with some excuse. A week of sick leave is nothing bad compared to the huge health gains. Remember man, you are greater than this. This is just a silly little habit, no big deal. You can drop it like the food you don't like, or the activities you don't enjoy. You've spent plenty of years with this enjoyable but seriously damaging habit. But almost all of smoking's effects are reversible in time, and that's a bargain don't you think? So the sooner you start the better right? Time to start a new chapter, be a better version of yourself. Peace bro, sorry for the text wall. I hope some other dudes will also see this. It can be hard, but like all difficult things, the journey is worth it.

The only good advice here tbh
2022-01-21 14:11
Talk to a doctor and ask for help. It can be less difficult (it is an addiction and it will be hard, but there are ways that can help you, especially in the early phases. Bupropion has been proved to be efficient to help, but again, you need to talk to a doctor. If you're in Canada, search for the Ottawa Model for Smoking Cessation and they have a community program that puts you in contact with a professional to help you. It is a role model program available all over the world as well, so maybe in your country too? Good luck and stay strong. PLease ignore all the negative comments here. You need people that support you.

Today's my 2nd day after using the last nicotine patch. I've been using them since November, when I had my last cig after 10+ years of heavy smoking. It wasn't the first time I tried to quit, but I sure hope it will be the last. It was extremely hard and I'm very happy I've done it. Now, I'm a regular normal guy, and if I did it, you can do it too. Remember, it gets easier day by day. And if you start smoking again, you will have to go through quitting again lol :D You made so much progress already, don't give up on it. Be strong!
