Im going to quit smoking... - June 19, 2007, 10:32 AM

I have to...I'm out of breath by the time I get to the 3rd floor of my apartment building...It stinks, its expensive, and the kicker....I saw my 4 year old pretend to smoke last week. (she put her two fingers up to her mouth and then pretended to blow out smoke)

After that Im done.

Anyone have any advice? Tips? Tricks?
This isnt going to be easy!!!

replace it with another vice. Jack Daniels is a good choice.

All I can say is good luck. I have tried everything, but its will power that is the kicker. if you can gather the strength, which from your posts I believe you have it in you, then you can do it. Its mostly mind over matter, and I don't have enough of the mind.
patches, pills, lozenges, inhalers, even candy ciggaettes. All you really need is another vice.

Unfortunately i cant replace the smoking vise with alcohol... i'd get fired from my job... and all alcohol does to me is make me want to smoke more. Every time i quit smoking i have to quit drinking at the same time.

if you go cold turkey... i really hope you dont have the same issue i do... i turn into a pain in the ass when i stop smoking. Its noticeable enough that my boss has even told me to go smoke.

Congrats on the desicion...it's the right one to make. My advice is to find out if for you it's a habit, or an adiction. If it's a habit chewing gum, lolipops, pens, ect will help distract you. If it's an adiction nicotine replacement will help, it did the trick for a lot of my friends. Be warned that the patch can give you wicked nightmares.

I'm just going to take this time to appologize to Paul (uubusa) ahead of time for any evil comments, eye rolls, and any and all over all bitchy behavior! Just remember you love me!

I figure I'll start slow...I think cold turkey would kill me. And I'll try eating every time I want to smoke. I could use a few pounds anyway!

I don't know if I agree with another vice, but Sith4Brains is right in that it's will power. I can't remember a time where I wasn't trying to quit smoking, and what it all comes down to, for me anyway, is will power (or rather, a lack of it). Products that are designed to help ween you from the nicoteen can be helpful, but if you lack the will to stop smoking, then you won't. I remember reading somewhere that you have to evaluate why you smoke now and come to terms with that before you're ready to quit. I suppose the reason I have so much trouble is because somewhere I really want to use smoking as a crutch for whatever is stressing me out. Instead of dealing with the problem, I smoke.

I wish you the best of luck.
