Quitting Smoking

If you used to be a smoker, or you are working on becoming a nonsmoker, what method did you use?

I slowly cut back on the number I am smoking a day by putting them off for longer and longer before I smoke them. I am down to about half a pack or less a day, now! I am thinking I will be smoke free by Thanksgiving!

  • I used Chantix and it worked but then I had a mental breakdown and started again! Ugh!! Maybe you could get a prescription from a good doctor. :) I know it works. And good for you!

  • I just quite cold turkey. After a 6 month period seeing 3 Uncles have heartaches and partly due to smoking. They were all fine but seeing them there in the hospital and everything hooked up to them. It was enough of a scare for me. I have not smoked in over 10 yrs.

  • This isn't exactly what you asked but my mother in law was talking about electric cigarettes she had found... Supposedly it is the same as a cigarette but it doesn't let you exhale actually smoke.. so no second hand smoke.. Idk she was telling me while my four month old was crying so I only caught bits and pieces...

  • I quit cold turkey and made myself only smoke when I drank ... then when I was sober I hated it.. which made me stop all together.

  • Good for you. I would say weaning is good and nicotine gum.
