How do I quit smoking?

Find something else to occupy your hands and mouth with.

Don't smoke?

However if you have no will power and can't do it own your own, developing lung cancer or having a heart attack either followed by death is a sure way to never smoke again.

I think this is one of your best decisions. You must know what are the advantages of quitting:

This will keep you motivated throughout. My friend was chain smoker and he quit. He use to say, just be mentally strong and you can do it. Here are some tips that helped him:


Make a major change in your life.
Get into to fitness.
Get a girlfriend.
Get a dog.
Go to school.
Get a second job.

Making a change in your lifestyle is the key to quiting. I got into fitness, got a non-smoking girlfriend and started to go to school and I don't think about smoking anymore I live a busy enough life that I'm stimulated by other things enough to forget about it.

You can try reading stories on this website to get some ideas

Success stories on people who managed to quit smoking

gum helps when u get disire n brushing ur teeth!!!!
n type smokers lung n then non smoker lung!!!! find the pics!!!! crazy diffrence good luck!

when i was a missionary for my church we'd help people quit smoking. there are a number of steps in the program we used. you quit cold turkey and then they were to be followed strictly for 7 days, which is the length it takes for the nicotene to get out of your system...after that, apply what steps work for you because then it's all psychological. i can't remember them all, but here are some:

1. eat breakfast
2. drink grapefruit juice
3. keep vegetable and fruit snacks available at all times
4. take vitamin C
5. brush your teeth three times a day
6. use mouthwash and keep a small bottle with you
7. tell your friends and people around you...if you can trust them
8. pray for help
9. take 5 deep breaths
10. don't drink coffee, alcohol or whatever else it is you drink while you smoke
11. go for a walk...shopping, exercising, play sports...something to get the jitters out.
12. drink enough water

it's tough. i watched a lot of people do it. some succeeded, some didn't. it had a lot to do with will power and determination to quit. it is possible, though. make a mantra for yourself to chant during the hardest times.

dont start in the first place, or go talk 2 someone before it kills u........

Wizard of Oz
Go at it cold turkey! (not actual turkey if you don't know the expression it means that you just give up and don't smoke and resist the urges then all of a sudden hopefully you will have given up on them)

Here are 12 techniques that will help you quit smoking......
1. Deep Breathing Perhaps The Single Most Powerful And Important Technique: Every time you want a cigarette, do the following. Do it three times.
Inhale the deepest lung-full of air you can, and then, very slowly, exhale. Purse your lips so that the air must come out slowly. As you exhale, close your eyes, and let your chin gradually sink over onto your chest. Visualize all the tension leaving your body, slowly draining out of your fingers and toes, just flowing on out.
This is a variation of a yoga technique and is very relaxing. If you practice this, you'll be able to use it for any future stressful situation you find yourself in. And it will be your greatest weapon during the strong cravings sure to assault you over the first few days.
2. Taking In Fluids:
The first few days, drink LOTS of water and fluids to help flush out the nicotine and other poisons from your body.
Remember that the urge to smoke only lasts a few minutes, and will then pass. The urges gradually become farther and farther apart as the days go by.
3. Stay Away From Alcohol, Sugar And Coffee
Do your very best to stay away from alcohol, sugar and coffee the first week or longer, as these tend to stimulate the desire for a cigarette. Avoid fatty foods, as your metabolism will slow down a bit without the nicotine, and you may gain weight even if you eat the same amount as before quitting. So discipline about diet is extra important now. No one ever said acquiring new habits would be easy!
Stretch out your meals; eat slowly and wait a bit between bites.
After dinner, instead of a cigarette, treat yourself to a cup of mint tea or a peppermint candy.
4.Taking An Oral Substitute
One can use cinnamon sticks, chewing gum or artificial cigarettes as a substitute. You will mostly find that after the first week of being a non smoker, you wouldn’t even need these.
5. Get Exercising
Go to a gym, sit in the steam, exercise. Change your normal routine – take time to walk or even jog around the block or in the local park.
6.Pamper Yourself
Go ahead and join a Sahajayoga Centers in or take a long bath - pamper yourself. Get yourself involved in a hobby.
7. Ask For Support
Ask for support from co-workers, friends and family members. Ask for their tolerance.. Take a chance - try it and see!
Ask friends and family members not to smoke in your presence. Don't be afraid to ask. This is more important than you may realize.
8. Destroy All Your Cigarettes
On your quit day, hide all ashtrays and destroy all your cigarettes, preferably with water, so no part of them is smokeable.
9. Write It Down
Write down ten good things about being a nonsmoker - and then write out ten bad things about smoking. Do it. It really helps.
10. Don’t Pretend
Don't pretend smoking wasn't enjoyable – it was. This is like losing a good friend – and it's okay to grieve the loss. Feel that grief, don't worry, it's okay. Feel, and you heal. Stay with it - you can do it!
11. Affirm Yourself
Silently repeating the affirmation "I am a nonsmoker" will help you change your view of yourself, and, even if it may seem silly to you, this is actually useful. Use it!
12. Holding Out
However, it's vital to understand that from time to time, you will still be suddenly overwhelmed with a desire for "just one cigarette." This will happen unexpectedly, during moments of stress, whether negative stress or positive (at a party, or on vacation). If you are unprepared to resist, succumbing to that "one cigarette" will lead you directly back to smoking.
Remember the following secret: in these surprise attacks during Phase 2 - and they will definitely come - do your deep breathing, and hold on for five minutes, and the urge will pass..

have you talked to your doctor??

Fill out your own two weeks notice, and smoke one cig less each day for that 2 weeks, and commit to yourself you wont smoke at all after the 2 weeks no matter what, and exercise self control.

Count the number of cigarettes you currently smoke per day. Tomorrow, count out that number and remove one. Don't smoke any more than those you've set out. Do this every day, reducing the number by one or one-half (destroy the other half) per day. If you're a heavy smoker, that's perhaps only a 1-2% reduction in nicotine per day - nothing you'll miss too much.

That will reduce your nicotine dependence quite a bit. You'll still be hard-pressed to stop completely, but it's a lot less willpower to cut out 5 per day than 50.


Here is lot of ways how to do it. It can be nicotine replacement therapy, laser therapy, nlp, hypnosis, cold turkey method, pills and other methods. You can read about all currently existing methods at http://www.asmoking.com/
But please note what mostly help not meds, mostly help your wish and your selfmotivation. All this methods only lower your nicotine addiction.

buy some nicorette gum or a nicotine patch

lots and lots of other distractions!!
