Tips for giving up smoking?

I’ve recently started smoking again after I having quit for four years. I really want to stamp on it fast. I’ve tried the patches, but sometimes I have a cigarette and then the combination of patches and cigarette just increases the nicotine levels in my blood stream and thus increases my dependency. Does any one have any ideas other than patches? What have been your experiences of different methods of giving up smoking? Any tips?

    Oh my gosh!
    That’s crazy.
    Yeah, you do need to stomp on it fast. I have a grandma who is on oxygen, and could die in 5 years or less all because of smoking.
    It’s really sad….Now she is on oxygen.
    She needs lung transplants. She will die in 5 years even with those!!!
    But really, only god knows when you will die.

    My aunt just found a spot on her lung and they thought it was cancer, she’s also been smoking her whole life.
    That scared the crap right outta her so she quit smoking now.
    I don’t know why it’s so easy for her.

    But anyways,
    I really really hope you quit..
    Goodluck hunni

    Mental Issues:

    – Fear that you have no activities to take the place of smoking.
    – Allowing the idea that nicotine is in control.

    Physical Aid:

    – When you have the urge to smoke, chug a bottle/glass of water.
    – Keep a handy case of candy or mint and eat consistently to keep your mind from thinking of smoking.
    – Use patches or gum to facilitate the process.

    Emergency:

    – I known many people who just sucked up the will to not smoke for 3 days straight. It was painful, but at the end, they lost the urge once and for all.

    I quit but mostly because my supplier got caught… lol. (I’m 16.)

    You have to tell yourself that there is more negative aspects to smoking than positive, you could use the money spent on smokes on candy or gifts for yourself.

    Don’t try cold turkey, slowly ween yourself off cigarettes, make it a priority to only smoke when your really stressed out. Get a buddy or a family member to ration your cigarettes.

    I probably would of followed these steps if my supplier didn’t get busted. =P

    I started, quit, started, quit…it kept going like that until I quit for good. How did I do it? Cold turkey, actually, but I reminded myself how I felt smoking. Sometimes I’d get headaches, but it’s my throat that was killing me. I told myself that it just isn’t good for me, and that if I want to be healthy, I can’t keep doing this. The cravings weren’t bad, but when I thought about a cigarette, I’d just remember that feeling in my throat, that smoke smell on my clothes and that weird taste on the back of my tongue.

    Hypnotherapy, honestly I was a complete critic and a chronic smoker and I stopped after 3 sessions. I haven’t smoked in over a year. I used to get up in the middle of the night. Good luck it’s really worth it. Health and financially speaking. And socially for that matter.

    Make up your mind that you are quitting for good.

    I’ve quit three times in the past year, and cigarettes are just so disgusting that this last time wasn’t hard for me at all. Sure, the first few days sucked, but I knew that I didn’t want a cigarette – I’m just addicted to the nicotine. I also quit smoking weed recently and I still have not gone back to cigarettes. And I won’t.

    When i saw this show by accident about a 30ish young man
    with mouth cancer ! I totally freaked ….. i love talking and could
    not imagine the agony and pain and the way he looked….that
    did it for me. I sat and had a good think about how i wanted to
    go about it……I remembered a Movie star who always had a lolly
    pop in his detective show , hanging out of his mouth, after the
    media had reported he had cancer from the smoking.

    Basically, i filled my fridge with all kinds of lollypops and gum
    to give me a rest from one and the other ! threw the packet of
    smokes away and sat down first thing in an armchair with my
    morning coffee and lollypop….i calmly sucked and before i knew
    it ……i didn’t care two hoots for the cigarettes, i was amazed
    at how easy it really was….also i prayed at night to make me
    stop….i was really that fed up of the smell , and i like perfume
    a LOT better….so i stuck to it.
    The other thing i asked friends who did smoke not to come around
    for the first week or so, in the end i called them and told them
    as long as they smoked outside i would be out there talking to
    them, but basically it did not bother me at all…i was over it !
    And to my suprise when the odd person that smoked showed
    up , it really did not matter to me…i was fully over smoking, that
    was 17 years ago, but feels only like one year ago still !
