Health

my recent failed attempt, 4 months.. this time i'm trying a different method, i ordered a disposable e-cig with some nicotine in it. If it gives me satisfaction, i might order more and at least cut back from 6 to 7 cigs a day to 3.

Swipe to go to another post.

If you want to quit bad enough you can do it..
I know a couple of people that just quit cold turkey.

I couldn't do that.

I got patches and told myself, when I put the first patch on, I'm not touching another cigarette.

That's what I did, that's how I quit..

It's not an easy habit to break I don't smoke myself but the big tobacco companies don't want people to quit its all about revenue screw the fact that they are killing people that's why they pack their product with stuff to keep you needing that cigarette its all about the almighty dollar according to a study they make $7000 for every person that dies using their product shocking and sickening

Smoking sucked. The only reason I did was where I worked wouldn't let us have a break if you didn't smoke.

Isn't that unfair? The place I used to work had some renovations done and a pavilion was build for the smokers. It was a nice little structure that could have served to be a nice place for anybody to sit for lunch and breaks. But the smokers complained about it being too cold. Now it has walls and heaters. They have gone all out for the comfort of smokers and I have no clue why. The company pays for healthcare afterall.

Unfair, illegal, etc. And if anyone complains (read: me), they are told they are just whining and trying to "stir the pot".

Sound familiar?

Quitting took me a long time too, but the patch was a big help when I was ready. It's been over twenty years now. I really believe you will get there.

Chantex helped me. I still requires you to change habits, but you will get there. Good luck.

Everyone has something unhealthy they do for releasing stress be it smoking, overeating, drinking, procrastinating. I dont often eat healthy and dont exercise enough plus I have a mild addiction to videogames and energy drinks.

I think quitting is probably the single greatest thing you can do for your health. It sounds very difficult thought but I'm sure you'll work out a way and in years to come, you'll be happy you did.

Imagine how much money you'll save when you quit smoking. You're Canadian so what's the cost of a pack of cigarette's now? $10.00? You know us Canadians pay more for everything. (hehe)

If you REALLY want that ... there are many ways to get help to stop smoking. If you don't utilize them, then you REALLY didn't want to stop.

A good thing to help quit is to develop a new habit. Along with the addiction of nicotine, I think a lot of people get used to the ritual of smoking at certain times of the day or smoking with others. Replacing these habits with another one might help. But make sure the new habit isn't so addicting!

Never smoked, but I chewed. It was incredibly difficult to quit. Chewing nicotine gum (almost had a terrible typo there) helped me quit.

All I can say is never stop trying to quit, and good luck.

Keep going my friend, and remember it is one of the most difficult addictions to overcome. Most people have to make four or five attempts to quit.
