some people prefer smoking than drinking alcohol. maybe because it is cheaper than alcohols. so, smoking kills that is what the label in the cigarette. even though it has a label like that, people still smoking. so how to quit, one way i think is that always chew bubble gums or candies to still working of the mouth.

Smokers often start smoking because friends or family do. But they keep smoking because they get addicted to nicotine, one of the chemicals in cigarettes and smokeless tobacco.

Nicotine is both a stimulant and a depressant. That means it increases the heart rate at first and makes people feel more alert. Then it causes depression and fatigue. The depression and fatigue — and the drug withdrawal from nicotine — make people crave another cigarette to perk up again. Some experts think the nicotine in tobacco is as addictive as cocaine or heroin.

But don't be discouraged; millions of people have permanently quit smoking. These tips can help you quit, too:

Put it in writing. People who want to make a change often are more successful when they put their goal in writing. Write down all the reasons why you want to quit smoking, like the money you'll save or the stamina you'll gain for playing sports. Keep that list where you can see it. Add new reasons as you think of them.

Get support. People are more likely to succeed at quitting when friends and family help. If you don't want to tell your family that you smoke, ask friends to help you quit. Consider confiding in a counselor or other adult you trust. If it's hard to find people who support you (like if your friends smoke and aren't interested in quitting), join an online or in-person support group.

Strategies That Work
Set a quit date. Pick a day that you'll stop smoking. Put it on your calendar and tell friends and family (if they know) that you'll quit on that day. Think of the day as a dividing line between the smoking you and the new, improved nonsmoker you'll become.

Throw away your cigarettes — all of your cigarettes. People can't stop smoking with cigarettes around to tempt them. So get rid of everything, including ashtrays, lighters, and, yes, even that pack you stashed away for emergencies.

Wash all your clothes. Get rid of the smell of cigarettes as much as you can by washing all your clothes and having your coats or sweaters dry-cleaned. If you smoked in your car, clean that out, too.

Think about your triggers. You're probably aware of the times when you tend to smoke, such as after meals, when you're at your best friend's house, while drinking coffee, or as you're driving. Any situation where it feels automatic to have a cigarette is a trigger. Once you've figured out your triggers, try these tips:

Break the link. If you smoke when you drive, get a ride to school, walk, or take the bus for a few weeks so you can break the connection. If you normally smoke after meals, do something else after you eat, like go for a walk or talk to a friend.
Change the place. If you and your friends usually eat takeout in the car so you can smoke, sit in the restaurant instead.
Substitute something else for cigarettes. It can be hard to get used to not holding something or not having a cigarette in your mouth. If you have this problem, stock up on carrot sticks, sugar-free gum, mints, toothpicks, or lollipops.
Handling Withdrawal
Expect some physical symptoms. If your body is addicted to nicotine, you may go through withdrawal when you quit. Physical feelings of withdrawal can include:

headaches or stomachaches
crabbiness, jumpiness, or depression
lack of energy
dry mouth or sore throat
a desire to eat
The symptoms of nicotine withdrawal will pass — so be patient. Try not to give in and sneak a smoke because you'll just have to deal with the withdrawal longer.

Keep yourself busy. Many people find it's best to quit on a Monday, when they have school or work to keep them busy. The more distracted you are, the less likely you'll be to crave cigarettes. Staying active is also a good distraction, plus it helps you keep your weight down and your energy up.

Quit gradually. Some people find that gradually decreasing the number of cigarettes they smoke each day is an effective way to quit. But this strategy doesn't work for everyone. You may find it's better for you to go "cold turkey" and stop smoking all at once.

Look into using a nicotine replacement if you need to. If you find that none of these strategies is working, talk to your doctor about treatments like nicotine replacement gums, patches, inhalers, or nasal sprays. Sprays and inhalers are available by prescription only, and it's important to see your doctor before buying the patch and gum over the counter. Different treatments work differently (for example, the patch is easy to use, but other treatments offer a faster kick of nicotine). Your doctor can help you find the solution that will work best for you.

Slip-Ups Happen
If you slip up, don't give up! Major changes sometimes have false starts. If you're like many people, you may quit successfully for weeks or even months and then suddenly have a craving that's so strong you feel like you have to give in. Or maybe you accidentally find yourself in one of your trigger situations and give in to temptation.

If you slip up, it doesn't mean you've failed. It just means you're human. Here are three ways to get back on track:

Think about your slip as one mistake. Take notice of when and why it happened and move on.
Did you become a heavy smoker after one cigarette? Probably not. It happened more gradually, over time. Keep in mind that one cigarette didn't make you a smoker to start with, so smoking one cigarette (or even two or three) after you quit doesn't make you a smoker again.
Remind yourself why you quit and how well you've done — or have someone in your support group, family, or friends do this for you.
Reward yourself. Quitting smoking isn't easy. Give yourself a well-deserved reward! Set aside the money you usually spend on cigarettes. When you've stayed tobacco-free for a week, 2 weeks, or a month, give yourself a treat like a gift card, movie, or some clothes. Celebrate again every smoke-free year. You earned it.

You cannot stop something until you really, really want it, and until you are convinced, each and every time you think about relapse, that it is not worth the progress you have made. Until you truly, fully believe that, it does not matter which method. That is probably why it hasn't worked for you yet.

as a smoker I have to say that alcohol stimulates smoking through dilating blood vessels on your throat I guess but they're not smiluants like coffee, cocaine afaik

correct me if im wrong

but yeah, on point. if you wanna stop smoking stop everything that enables it

problem of smoking is not tobacco, it's not the cause of the habbit. this ritual, a tradition to smoke a cigarette, staying alone for a while, thinking about life, that is the biggest problem, people get used to it. but i know that it is very easy to stop smoking. my friend stopped just in one day, because he wanted, realy wanted

The main problem is in your head and your job is to understand that you don't need to smoke. First of all try to stop smoking and start doing something else. For expample when you want to smoke , drink water.

First of thanks for every suggestion. I slowly over the years became a smoker. I became aware of my addiction. I tried quiting several timer, but every time I would come back to it and smoke even more.

I tried two things so far:

1. Fully stoping to smoke
2. Gradually reducing

But it backfired every time. How did you stop?



there is no excuses to stop you from smoking, if you have the self discipline and you give importance to your body and health you will stop immediately.

The most common way to quit addiction is to become addicted to something new in a good way like being addicted to your sport or play games have recreation, keep in mind that there are many things to help fight stress and always remember that smoking is bad to your health and you will have big problems if you continue smoking.

Quitting smoking is not that easy especially when you are addicted to it. Just think what will happen to your body if you're not going to stop it before its too late.

I have tried these two ways and here i am. Smoking. And never been happier. Cheesy jk. I think we need to wish it more. It is just like the diet and its yo-yo effect. We literally celebrate after quitting it with smoking and that is whete it comes back.

It is difficult to stop smoking if you are a chain smoker. Rehab might be useful.

It's just a fight between you and your habbit. If you are stronger and can take control you will quit smoking without problem. I did it in 21 day by driking water in times when i wanted to smoke.

I havent quit myself as yet, came to the conclusion I still enjoy smoking and don't really hate it. However from my half assed failed attempts in the past Vaping has been by far the most successfull option for me personally.
These days I do both, it keeps the ciggs count down per day. Personally I am just a bit of a problem smoker which I would like to reduce, personally quitting isn't a goal right now.

If you don't really want to quit for yourself you will never manage to quit. But try out Vaping, its nice. Remember to give it 3 days since you'll usually cough when you start vaping as a smoker (this is just the gunk in your lungs clearing out). You'll feel way better after those 3 days too Smiley

Dogs are nice, I don't like cats though.

Read couple of books and articles on Bad effects of smoking. The more you read, the more your mind will start working in that direction
