 smoking. I dont smoke in the house or around my kids for those of you who would like to bash.

 

I need some kind of plan or ideas how to quit. What is better...quitting slowly? Or cold turkey? I dont have much "will power" or I wouldnt be smoking to begin with. I would like to try electronic cigs, but they are expensive (yeah real cigs are more expensive, but dont cost that much in one purchase, and what if they dont work?) I have tried chantex...It works..well it helps..but Like an idiot I quit taking it after 2 weeks.....because it made me REALLLY sick feeling. (like throw up feeling) If any of you quit...how did you do it?

i used chantrix and the nausea sucked but i pushed thru it and quit. i thought it worked great. my suggestion for the nausea is to take it earlier than before bed and stay active for another hour or so after taking it. i feel like that really helped me thru the nausea.

otherwise here is something that i think helps:

write down 2 lists: 1 of all the regular cigs you smoke: in the car, after taking a crap, whatever the times are you always have to smoke

then another list of impulse cigs: when im stressed at work and need a quick breather, on a long car trip, when i am bored

then write next to each of these cigarettes what you are going to do instead of smoke a cigarette. then do that thing instead to get you thru that time. it helped my family, we were all smokers and i was the only one who used chantix and we are all quit now so it worked for them

I quit cold turkey the day i found out i was pregnant. I had tried everything before but nothing worked. I just needed a little more motivation lol! I have to say that out of everything I tried gradual quitting was the worst and worked the least...GOODLUCK!!!!
