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.

If you want to try the way that has a documented 75% stop smoking rate, get a book called "The Easyway to Stop Smoking" by Allen Carr. There's also a downloadable audio program.

I gambled the $15 and bought the book at Chapters on a Wed, and by Fri I was smoke-free, forever. I had a harder time picking out what to wear today than I did stopping smoking after 25 yrs.

Best of luck. Get the book !

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 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. Wink

I FOUND OUT THAT SMOKING IS 2 ADDICTIONS !!!

I've gone thru the same thing. Always attempting to stop - and ending up smoking again.

Hold on !!!!!

I found a life saving article that showed me how to stop and stay stopped successfully.

If you want to end the vicious cycle Please read this article - "Smoking Cessation: The Real Psychology Behind It" by Malcolm Baptiste!!!

Now I have discovered a way out!!!! Read the article - IT'S GREAT !!!

Goggle it on-line.

One Is Too Many, A Thousand's Never Enough !!!

Don't give up on yourself. We can do this !!!
