 I so want to stop smoking. I can't use medication since I react strongly to meds. I am scared of the patches for the same reason. Has anyone stopped? How did you do it?

I thought of this til I read a report saying the liquid can be dangerous if it gets on skin. And deadly if kids drink it

 My mom and step dad are doing the electronic cigarette and haven;t stopped, but it's made them cut way back.

I remember the day I pick the habit back up. I wanted a cigarette cause I was bored and we had just moved to a new country. So I went and bought a pack. Wish that day had never happened

Quoting TerriC:

 There are still times where I feel the urge!  It is hard!!

Quoting JTMOM422:

This is totally true. I went through a period where I just didn't want to smoke. I quit for 4 years. then one day I lit up and that was that. So stressed lately is what is making it hard to quit 

Quoting TerriC:

I did.  5 years ago.  Cold turkey.  I also could not do meds or the patch, so I just made up my mind and did it.  You have to "want" to do it.  So many people told me that, and it is SO true.  Good luck to you!!!!

The fake ones still have nicotine. I am going to talk to my doc about the gum

 It's easy to do. (pick the habit back up that is).  Especially when a move is involved, that makes it tough.
