Cold turkey - the withdrawals from nicotine are minimal and and only last a couple of days. The sooner you are nicotine free, the better. Quitting is pretty easy. Staying quit is tougher....but you can do it.
I honestly believe that the best method for quitting smoking is one that tries to balance your brain chemistry with nutrition. For instance your neurotransmitters (brain chemicals) such as serotonin and dopamine will most likely be low when you quit. The amino acid tyrosine helps with lethargy and poor concentration by boosting dopamine. And tryptophan boosts serotonin which helps with irritability, insomnia, sugar cravings, anxiety and depression. It can also be a great help to cut out sugars and refined carbs due to their negative effect on blood sugar and mineral balance.
yeah councilling is good and big help for you and get the doctor to helping you how to stop smoking.you have to be strong and fucos postive always y\in your mind that you can do it, you can do it for your self,for the people who loves you, specially for your family and for your self if you want have a good health and if you want to live a many more years.
My father quitted smoking by using chewing gum. He said instead of smoking, chewing gum will make your mouth busy and forget about the cigarette. In addition, you would quit if you know about the danger of smoking
I quit smoking about 2weeks ago, I'm doin it completely off will power. I've tried quitting a couple of times before but this time i believe i've done it. Everytime i had a craving id tell myself that if i slip up even jus once that ill be back to square 1 an that it will be even harder to quit.
Well first you have to make the decision then use the patch and the gum...It works DONT use Champix
I agree, what ever way u choose to try to quit, DO NOT USE CHAMPIX. I took champix for 3 weeks in total, and in week three, the side effects were so bad for me, I had to stop taking it. I was suicidal, felt depressed and was really not myself at all.
I tried quitting previously, using patches and just going cold turkey with it, but on neither of those attempts did I have such terrible feelings, thoughts and withdrawals. I would even go as far to say that the only times a craved a smoke this time round was down to the mood altering effect of champix. I just hope I return to normal at some point soon.
I've not taken champix for 3 days now, and I'm managing to stay stopped.
champix was good for me, quit after 10 days even went for a beer, which previously went hand in hand with the ciggies, i've had side effects, 24/7 tired, vivid dreams, headaches, etc, but alot of this stuff is nicotine withdrawal symptoms, doesn't suit everyone, but i'm over the moon.
There is no best way to quit, there are certain treatments or programs that do work better than others. With that said everyone is different and cold turkey is not for everyone.I have a blog it has many tips and advice to help you quit
