Help me I need to stop smoking ASAP but Im having a hard time doing it. I can go hours without one but thats all I think about during the time til I get one.

Im willing to try anything but I cant do suckers or hard candy though.

You can do it if you really want to. My dad quit cold turkey after smoking for 30 years.

Can you cut back? Like the first day you get 10. The next, 9...then 8 and so forth? That's how I did it.

I'd also go as long as I possibly could. I'd want to smoke, but I'd tell myself, "ok, just finish doing the dishes."...but the craving would be gone when I was done and I could go longer. The next one would hit and I'd tell myself I could go smoke after a certain task. Keep busy. If you keep telling yourself you can have one at some point, it takes that anxiety away...the anxiety you get when you're arguing with yourself and trying to convince yourself not to.

Hold on to ONE cigarette... It will be your security blanket so to speak. Never have a lighter on you never ask for one. Put the cigarette in your mouth when you crave one but put like hot sauce or something on it lol.



Good luck!!!

I have done that and the butts in a water bottle thing before didnt bother me none bc i have a really strong stomach so things like that dont have the same effect on me as it does others.
