It's not about strength or the resolve to quit. It's about finding something more important than smoking worth quitting for. I am a gambling addict on a long and psinfil road to recovery and my family is important to me. I am quitting for them.

And apparently this thread has derailed from a conversation about ways to quit smoking to a debate as to whether or not smoking is harmful? How the hell did that happen...
There isn't much to discuss. Smoking any amount of cigarettes is harmful.

i didnt say that i will leave because i cant say it but atleast im trying to minimize it i will try next week to make it from 7 to 5 stick a day Smiley
If i can come down from being a chain smoker to 2 cigarette a day than I don't think coming down from 7to5 will be hard for you Smiley

hey rob why do you have to discourage me?? Cheesy anyway im trying i did make it from 12 to 7 sticks and i will make it to 5 until i stop

Just switch to vaping. It's way better and though I haven't bothered trying myself, I have heard that it is much easier to quit vaping than to quit smoking. It's also fairly easy to work your way down in terms of nicotine strength with vaping. I started at 18mg liquid and went down to 12mg after a couple months without any real difficulty.

You probably need to adjust the nicotine strength. If you are feeling dizzy or weird it's too high. What strength did you try? A friend of mine told me when he was doing 18mg juice he would sometimes feel naesous/jittery/dizzy if he was vaping for a long time, especially if he had not eaten recently. The same thing would happen if you chugged 3 or 4 cups of coffee in a short time span. When he dropped down to 12mg he was fine.

i dunno as i only try it with my friend vape last year and i dunno also if its the nicotine strength or the beer that er are drinking but im sure im not yet tipsy so maybe he is using a high dosage of nicotine

My father use to smoke one pack of cigarettes every day. When finally he decided to quit, he used a chewing gum as a replacement for the cigarettes. But after a week he changed chewing gum for a hard candy. When he felt the need to smoke, he sucked a hard candy. After six months he stopped eating candy and smoking.

I'd say, don't bring any money with you. If you don't have enough money you will not even be able to buy more cigarettes how tempting it might be. If you do need money for shopping other stuff, calculate how much it would cost, and bring just enough. And remember to force your willpower to not buy cigarettes while you hand over the money.

I just noticed this one... dude trust me that doesn't work, you just end up bumming smokes off people. And usually they are pretty sympathetic and give them to you easily (even though they're expensive now) because they have all been there.

Jody, your friend was probably vaping some high-nic stuff and/or a low quality liquid. If you use junk juices they will make you feel crappy. Super high nic + alcohol will definitely make you swoon if you aren't used to it, so you need to get the right mh/ml (most people start on 12 or 18.)

I've cut it down to 2-3 packs of cigs per week at most. I smoke 1 when I work at night though.
I'm cutting back on this before I start to exercise again.

I think a good bet would be cutting the amount of cigs you use daily in half and so on until your smoking almost nothing.  Spend time learning about the dangers of smoking so you can remind yourself how much the cigs are hurting you in real time.  Maybe spend money on other things that you would have spend on cigs?

Lung cancer is the main thing that worries me. If it wasn't for that I'd probably smoke a few packs a week. Now I only limit it to when I'm stressed out. Hopefully 2 packs a week won't damage my health too much.

darkbum, it's great that you want to stop smoking! The first thing to do is to find someone who wants to stop smoking too. It is easier to do smth when you have like-minded person. Or if you don't have one, be aware that it will take you a lot of strength of will.

It takes a long time to quit smoking. It's almost impossible to quit in one or few days If you have smoked for years, If you do so you would feel really bad because your organism is already "addicted" to smoking and needs It. Best to do is stop gradually taking less and less cigarettes  per day till you'll finally take none. This can take several months or even over a year.
