Start your stop smoking plan with START

S = Set a quit date.

T = Tell family, friends, and co-workers that you plan to quit.

A = Anticipate and plan for the challenges you'll face while quitting.

R = Remove cigarettes and other tobacco products from your home, car, and work.

T = Talk to your doctor about getting help to quit.

okey,thanks!!!

I think there are some medicines are there for quit smoking. But quit smoking suddenly is impossible for chain smokers. so as a chain smoker you just try to reduce the number of cigarettes you used to smoke per day.

Hey,
I would like to tell you something of how I had quit smoking,
I used Nicorette Gum that allows you to actively control how much nicotine you use and when you use it.
I used Low Strength 2mg Gum: Since it is Suitable for those who smoke 20 cigarettes a day or less. And I use to smoke approx 12 cigarettes a day.
And so with the 12 Week Nicotine Replacement Plan of Nicorette I quit smoking. Today it;s been almost more than 6months and I don't get any cravings.
Thanks and cheers to Nicorette for helping me and others like me. nicorette.in/successful-quitting

Regards,
Pinky

Smoking doesn't give any good benefits to us, yes it can give a little pleasure for a short period of time but we will suffer for the consequences for a long time or lifetime. As much as possible, we should avoid cigarettes, if we cannot handle addiction, better not to involve ourselves to it.

A lot of smokers these days are vaping instead of puffing on cigarettes.

I was able to successfully quit smoking with NicoDerm. I only used their "Step 1" patches though. When I started my cessation odyssey, I just used them the regular way by sticking one of them somewhere on the left side of my chest or on my left arm.

After doing that for two weeks, I then started to cut them in half. I'd put half of a patch on in the morning, then I'd put the other half on late in the afternoon (about 4 pm). As the weeks and months went by, I'd cut the patches into smaller and smaller pieces. I was wearing just an eighth of a patch for the entire day near the end of my odyssey.

Although I needed to wear a piece of the patch for a little longer than a year and a half, it stopped me from smoking. I haven't smoked a filthy, poisonous cigarette in well over a decade now. As a result, my life has improved by leaps and bounds.

Nicotine patches are expensive (usually about $30.00 for a box of 7 of them). Therefore, keeping a sufficient supply of nicotine patches around can be quite challenging when you're trying to kick the habit.

One way to address this is to plan ahead. I did that by pledging to quit 6 months in advance of my actual quit date. I used the 6 months leading up to my quit date to buy as many boxes of patches as I could afford and to psych myself up for my cessation odyssey.

If you decide to quit smoking in the same manner as I did, then it is important to remember not to hurry it along. The idea is to succeed at quitting smoking. It is not a race.

When you're on the patch, you're not inhaling any of the harmful tar and toxins that cigarettes have in them. That's a good thing. Also, when you're trying a lower dose and you're having trouble adhering to that level of nicotine intake, then just go back to the amount you were taking just before that for a while longer. Remember, you're in no hurry. You're already not smoking.

If you happen to fail trying to quit smoking in the way that I've suggested, then no harm has been done. At least, you've cleaned out your lungs a bit and you can always try again in the future. I, myself, tried quitting smoking umpteen times before I was finally practiced enough to actually go all the way and quit for good. Never give up trying to quit smoking. For most of us, it does take practice.

Many years ago, back when I quit smoking, there was a blurb on boxes of NicoDerm that claimed that their's was the only patch that could release nicotine into your body at steady intervals all through the day (or something like that). I can't vouch for what the blurb claims, however, I can tell you that I was able to successfully kick the habit by using NicoDerm too, BloodyHell.

My appetite for something to munch on increased enormously after I quit smoking and I developed quite a sweet tooth back then as well. I can remember devouring whole bags of candy in just one day. Of course, I gained a lot of weight as a result of eating so much. I gained about 50 lbs. during the first year alone and then even more lbs. in the years that followed. Eventually, I was able to lose most of this excess weight by later adhering to a strict no bread/no sugar diet.

Although I liken my first year and a half without smokes to be like spending time in Hell, it was so worth it for me. I feel like my life today has also improved by leaps and bounds, BloodyHell.

I developed quite a sweet tooth shortly after I quit smoking too. I was able to keep it under control somewhat by adding a generous splash of maple syrup to my cereal at breakfast each morning and by adding honey to the many peanut butter sandwiches that I ate back then. In the evening, I'd often snack on dates if I had them. Dates are naturally sweet and they're also very good for you.

You might like watermelon as a healthy snack to satisfy your sweet tooth when you are kicking the habit. Watermelon contains very few calories. It's just a suggestion. I, myself, have never smoked cigarettes.
