For 2010 I am going to quit Smoking. Please Help Me.

Hey guys,

It's 2010 now and I am finally going to attempt to quit smoking. Just so you know a little bit about me:

I am 25 years old. I have reguarly smoked at least 1 cig a day since I was 16 or 17.

I have never been a pack a day smoker. At my worst, i may only smoke 4 or 5 a day.

I am down to 2 cigs a day now. I can go all day long and through meals without the urge to smoke. The only time I smoke is before bed, and i dont know why I have to do it then.

I have one pack left that is half empty. I really want this pack to be my last. Any tips? Should I just quit immediatley after the pack is done?

I get plenty of regular exercise because of my boxing, and i can run and box and workout without getting short of breath or anything like that. I'm in good shape maybe a few pounds heavier because of the holidays, but i'm otherwise ok...any tips for me?

Talk to Trample. I believe he quit almost cold turkey last month. He should be able to give you good tips.

You deserve every blessing for realizing what you need to do to make your resolution a reality. By you smoking so little to abandon the practice altogether should not be difficult. Your greatest obstacle is going to be resisting the urge when it becomes greatest. If you can do that it won't be long before smoking will be an after thought.

I quit (cold turkey) many years ago, the hardest part about it was fighting the urge.

I quit 3 1/2 years ago. Just don't do it. Sucks for about 2 months then it's no big deal. I used those tea tree flavored tooth picks to combat the nervous energy. That or chew on a 1/2 a chop stick or something. Helped me. Cigarette free! Not one since I quit. Just don't do it. Not one. Never. Make up your mind or don't. Don't make it more difficult that it is. It is an addiction. A powerful one. Decide to quit and do it or keep smoking and plan your attack. Hope that helps. It ain't easy but I smoked almost 2 packs a day and quit cold turkey after getting some teeth pulled.

Today is going to be my first smoke free day. I smoked last night, 2 cigs before bed...and the weird thing is that they really tasted like crap. Maybe psychologically...I dont know. But i'll let everybody know my progress!

If you're only smoking 2 a day you should be able to quit pretty easily.

Just for you buddy I shall return . . . . that and the fact that Z got shit canned.

Smoking is a pain to quit. It's worse than drugs or alcohol. Don't ask me how I know, just believe me, smoking is the mother or them all. It took me many years of me attempting to quit to finally doing it.

My last cigarette was sometime in early November. What helped me was lifting weights. I've been killing it since November. I didn't use any of those gadgets. Some folk use tooth picks, some use the patch. The only thing I used was motivation.

I haven't been dating for a while so my motivation was for women. They also told me they'd throw a pot-luck dinner at work if I made it a month. The patches itched and burned like hell.

Everytime you think about a smoke look up a picture in a search engine of a smoker's lungs. Saden had a couple good ones in the other thread. Also, think of why you're quitting and ask yourself which is more important.

Thanks for coming back. I knew you'd have good advice. I am going to get my dad to quit as well, or at least try. He's smoked for 25 years...

I got my mother to quit with me. It can be done.

Hmmm . . . . I've heard negative and positive comments about it. I've no experience with it. I'd go cold turkey.

Chantix has some pretty scary potential side effects.
