cold turkey thats what i did I know its hard, you just have to eat a lot more try to eat healthy put on that weight for a couple of months and then start working it off and stop eating so much when the need for smoking stops
good luck

You're already using a drug -- why not use one to stop using it? In the case of nicotine replacement products like the Commit Lozenges, it's exactly the same drug that's in cigarettes, only without the cancer causing stuff.

Hey Keiron,
I've tried just about every method there is out there with zero success.
Gum patches and all the other just did not cut it for me, not to mention cold turkey which was the hardest, I even tried the electric cig and it is just no match to the real thing.
Eventually a friend told me about a NLP method, check out this article: http://www.squidoo.com/Not_Smoking_Any_More
It’s the one that got me off the cigs and smoke free for GOOD even without gaining weight! :)

Good luck kicking the habit!

It's to stop! After 3 days the constant longing stopped for me. The part you have to be aware of is that the strong and powerful longing will return at unexpected times. Try to stay away from friends who smoke. If there's someone else in the family who smokes at least ask them to smoke outside the house.
Beware the triggers. I used to light every time I got in the car. Just one of those things. Now I sip my coffee. I quit 2 years ago. AND, it's great. I no longer even think about it unless I see others like yourself just entering the struggle to quit. Believe me, once you've got away from smoking, you'll never regret. That's a fact.
Thanks and good luck

not start

Friendly Dude
well when i quit, i got some really minty gum. and whenever i had a craving i put in a piece. sometimes i had like 4 pieces in my mouth within 5 minutes, but it worked. stick it out, prices are going up soon :[

tough one,I smoke myself but only about 4 or five a day,so i would suggest cutting down first and see how you get on,cold turkey i can imagine would drive you crazy.

this may take time but it is a sure shot method.

always keep on postponing your urge to smoke.
eg. in the beginning if you want to smoke now try to smoke after an hour or two, then once daily, then slowly increase the time duration and gradually you will realise that you have stopped completely.
