  • Chantix worked for me. It gave me weird friggin dreams though, and messed with my period, but it stopped my cravings in a matter of a couple weeks.

  • Put a picture of your son inside the clear sleeve of your cigarettes, Every time you want to light up, you will see your son's face.

  • i quit when i got pergnant it was very hard cold turkey i sliped a few times and took a drag of a friends ciggarette, but what helped me was when i wanted one i thought of those disgustings "truth" commericals LOL it actualy helped ,and in that moment of weakness remember all the reasons you want to stop!!! also like if you always smoke having a morning cup of coffe don't have coffe, instead of somking after a meal go brush your teeth... in other words break the normal rutine that you associate with smoking!!!

  • Will power. You have to really want to quit. If you feel the urge then try ciinnamon sticks or pop a mint

  • stop buying them. What you have now is all you have. Limit the amount you smoke each day. Smoke only outside.
    Wean yourself. Each time you light up, remind yourself of what matter more.
