good job man! just think of all the years you will be adding to your life, and ALL the health benefits. my bestfriends mom was a smoker for YEARS, then she became a nurse, saw what smoking did first hand, and quit cold turkey, and she used to smoke a lot. so if that doesnt say how bad cancer sticks are for u, i dunno what will.

Good luck with the caffeine reduction and giving up smoking, you'll begin to feel the "good" effects soon and hopefully they'll compensate for the temporary crabiness and food cravings.
The money I used to spend on smokes' now makes my mom's car payments for her. The caffeine is sooo hard though, if I give up completely then I can cancel out my car insurance each month which is tempting but very very hard. Give yourself some goals for what you can treat yourself or others to with each vice you give up.

Jae, what's the matter. Realizing that your smoker lungs couldn't keep up with me on the mountain. That's cool that you are quitting. You only smoked like 4 cigs the whole day on the mountain. You can quit. It's all in your mind. Find some other thoughts and things to occupy your mind with. You can do it.

You need to go cold man... but you need a good reason. Dec 2 will be a whole year for me.... After 15 years I quit cold turkey. It sucks for a few days but it gradually gets better. It also helps having a gf who doesn't like you to smoke. But my real reason? I got tired of feeling like crap in the morning cuz I didnt get a good rest cuz my body was repairing all night instead of resting. I got tired of getting a cold and having a cough for a month afterwards. I got tired of feeling like crap and still forcing myself to smoke.

I won't deny, I love smoking and I still miss it. So that's why to quit you have to really not want to smoke. If you dont want to quit, you're wasting your efforts and in your case $ on the patches, etc. My advice? Figure out why first, then stop.

There certainly is something to be said of having a made up mind I must agree. But after working in the field of addiction and recovery for over ten years I can say that it often takes more than "just saying no."


implementing a new lifestyle is good as well. Accupunture has helped many people get through the intense cravings. I worked in a large 12O bed substance abuse treatment center in Pasadena Calif and we used to send the new clients to accupunture for craving reduction and it really works. Traditional western medicine is good but dont frown on a system that has been successful for thousands of years.

I agree, but I didn't mean what I said lightly , as in just "nope". I mean you have to want to.... want to quit more than you want to keep smoking. I still want to smoke, but I don't want to smoke more than I want to quit I had "quit" a buncha times, but only for a few months. So, in essence I did break the addiction more than a few times, all cold turkey. But I always went back because it wasn't important enouhg for me to quit. And I think that might be true for all but the most disciplined people, or those who just naturally have unaddictive personalities.

Certainly do other stuff if it help, I think Gargantua's got great advice. But for the long haul, find something to latch onto... hey the fear of cancer is quite the motivator

thanks for all your support guys~~ hehe... i have gone without a cigarette for a whole day today with a help of this patch... hopefully after i go though with this patch program it will be easier to quit... it is kinda interesting that i don't get the physical craving when i have the patch on... but i keep getting this image in my head about breathing in the smoke and breathing it out~~ i guess that is the psycological craving that i get.. hehe i even drank today, and didn't have a smoke~!!! i think i can do this~~ arggg~~ let's go~!!!! if anyone wants to try quiting with me~~ rock on~!!! haha maybe we can make a BAIC quit-smoking support group hahahah wish me luck~~ and if there is any advice you like to leave please feel free to enlighten me~~

suby-dude,

my mama says you the DEVIL! haahhaahaaha! jk!

r_master,

i've tried quitting myself, but with no such luck. i have cut down quite a bit though. there's no point in quitting COLD turkey since your body still needs to get used to NOT having its daily nicotine serving. hence you get all grumpy and moody if you quit cold turkey.

chewing gum helps drop the appetite boost after quitting. i used to smoke a pack a day and now, i just smoke 2-3 ciggs a day. of course, i chew through a pack of gum a day also. =D my next goal is to smoke ONLY on weekends. and ultimately quit for good.

good LUCK!!!

Great American Smokeout
The Great American Smokeout is held every year to help smokers quit for at least one day, in hopes they will quit forever. More people quit smoking on this day than any other day of the year.

Great American Smokeout is a nationally recognized event that challenges people to stop using tobacco and raises awareness around the many effective ways to quit for good.

Don't waste your money on patches. Been there, done that. Besides, the patch is more expensive than smoking.
I want to quit, but it is hard. Maybe one of these days. Don't try buying nasty/strong smokes to try to make you quit either. You'll just end up buying the same brand. Go cold and if you have the determination, you can do it. Hopefully, I'll be there soon. Just walk away @ the next KK meet cuz i'll be puffing away.
