Try to be busy, so you dont have time for cigs
You could try to replace smoking with a beneficial activity, something you enjoy, like maybe exercising, going for a walk, just something to occupy you whenever you get the urge to smoke. You also probably shouldn't quit cold turkey (idk if you are) but it just makes it way harder on you.
smoked for 10 years one day i just quit never looked back haven't smoked for 6 years now
I ate lots of sunflower seeds (shelled). Keeps you occupied. Could be gum or something else too but that's what worked for me.
go snus no tar but still nicotine addict
nicotine tablets do help tbh
but if you wanna avoid tablets then it's just your willpower that'll pull you through
for me it was easy i was like- okay no more and have been clean for 5 months now
you might wanna try installing an app on your phone that tells you how much money you save; that can really add up
you should fill the gap of your addiction with a healthy substitute. Adjust your eating behavior accordingly.
dont be gentle on yourself. if you get soft, the temptation will be too hard to resist.
I will tell you how a person i know did it. When you are in public have friends telling you to stop, when you want to by yourself, everytime you put your hand on the cig, start doing push ups until you can t. Man was both ripped and healthy lol
chew nicotine gum and slowly change it out for normal gum
allen carr easy way to stop smoking
I just switched to vaping, you dont smell, dont lose breath and it is cheaper, quitting nicotine is impossible for me
never smoked a single cig ez
Just stop, lmao. Cold turkey
i switched to vaping and then i start lowering nicotine percentage and stop vaping after 1 year
problem is you'll always have the urge to smoke if you've been smoking for a long time
give me all your money and I’ll make sure you don’t spent it on smokes
just stop buying cigarettes? lol dumb thread
i got a shit pack of lucky strikes, failed the quality check, smelled really bad and it put me off for a few days.
after that i just couldn't be asked to smoke. no cravings at all
I read a "stop smoking book" and it actually helped. It might not for you, but it could be a way to do it. It just makes you realise certain things about smoking and the habit in general (atleast for me it did)
When u Make progress u will deny a cig because it will be a set back of your progress
Good for you brother ! Hope it works out for you !
I stopped smoking when I met my wife some odd 13 years ago since she didn't want me to smoke. It was a cold turkey quit and I never looked back. The thing is I love her and don't want to disappoint her. The nicotine addiction is a joke compared to stuff like SSRI medicine withdrawal, or benzos, etc., they are far more addictive than some lousy nicotine. It takes a decision and going with it. If you fail you have only yourself to blame.
i bought tabs with nocotine and eat one when i needed smoke. each day i needed less tabs and one day puff i dont need no cigs or tabs
the only way I was able to kick smoking is having a reason that's greater than my want to keep smoking which was a girl so find a female that doesn't like smoking
my mom drank diet coke to stop smoking, maybe soda will help you if you trade
did last week, i lost my pack and was like thats it im quitting
Calculated how much im spending for cigarettes
a lot of people I know just did a cold turkey
start with a high concentration of nicotine, and once every few weeks reduce the concentration. eventually you will be at 0 nicotine.
i did the same thing with caffeine. i bought caffeine pills and over time cut them into smaller fractions until i was taking a tiny amount. alternatively you could mix caffeinated and non-caffeinated coffee
Sugar helps you to stop using nicotine
Oversmoke, vommit and leave them.
I never had desire to quit but if I did I would do that since it worked for alcohol
I have only smoked half a pack of cigarettes (10-12) since my first cigarette in 2019, but I did not feel addicted to cigarettes.
my father is addicted too , stopped smoking for 6-7 months and then started again.
and you guys
after how many branches/packs of cigarettes did you become addicted?
everytime you have the urge to smoke try chewing on some sunflower seeds instead
just get a different addiction that isn't as bad for you.
Try to be busy, just like first reply said.
vape but start with 12mg then build off to 0
get sick like 1 week in hospital and say bye cig
you dont need to stop drinking soda just drink less and drink no sugar.
Nicotine-free plastic inhalers may increase a smoker's chance of quitting, according to new research published online in the European Respiratory Journal.
This study is the first to assess the effectiveness of using a nicotine-free inhaler to help stop smoking.
The research, which was carried out by scientists at the Università di Catania in Italy, analysed 120 people who were enrolled in a programme to help them quit smoking.
The participants were split into two groups, with one group receiving the plastic inhalers as a treatment, and the other group following the usual programme.
The researchers also used questionnaires to determine a person's physical and behavioural dependence on cigarettes. After 24 weeks, the participants were asked if they had successfully quit smoking.
Whilst there wasn't a significant difference in the quit rates of both groups overall, people who continue to smoke due to the addictive habit and ritual process of 'lighting up' had a much higher success rate when using the inhaler.
People who were identified as being heavily dependent on the behavioural pattern of smoking had a quit rate of 66.7% in the group using the inhalers, compared with 19.2% in the other group.
The results show that for smokers who rely on the handling of a cigarette as a behavioural pattern, nicotine-free inhalers could increase their chance of success when trying to quit smoking.
Professor Riccardo Polosa, Director of the University Institute of Internal Medicine and Clinical Immunology at the University of Catania in Italy, said: "By showing a clear predictive association between the measure of behavioural dependence and relapse, our study is the first to reveal that the concept of behavioural addiction can be exploited as a useful clinical tool for many smokers willing to quit. This will open up a potentially novel area of research in smoking cessation."
as you can see behavioural addiction is very much involved
try those candy chocolate cigarettes and simply pick one of those up and pretend that you light it up and smoke it. And maybe at some point, a month or several months idk, your addiction of smoking slowly fades away... gl. Ofc it's gonna be damn hard and you will probably sweat or have absdinent, but anyone can be strong enought to do it, you just need to be strong mentally, If you want to light a real cigarette, think about how big of a pussy you are if you do it... Thank me later
