Hey Shanthosh. What worked for me was when I had a specific, personal reason why I should quit. Study up on the health hazards. For example, check out some of the videos on youtube in the Stop Smoking or Quit Smoking category. I wrote some articles and posted them on my blog site. You can check it out at nu-glo.com

Have your doctor prescribe a nicotine patch for you to help wean yourself off that powerfully addictive drug. Nicotine does not cause cancer, but it is more addicting than heroine.

Hope this helps. I commend you for quitting. Don't stop until you do! javascript:emoticon('Razz')

Do not stop it suddenly if you are addict.
Decrease it day by day. Be powerful Mentally.

Good luck.

use patches
I really, really recommend the use of patches.

First, limit the use of your cigarettes to something you can stick with eg. no more than one per hour etc. And set a quit date ahead of time, perhaps a time when you are on holidays or do not have too much on, or can have some support. On your quit date, start using the patches and stop smoking altogether. Make use of a support person also.

A good way to stop smoking less is to smoke natural cigarettes because the free basing chemical is not there. I think they are called American Spirits and they come in regular and menthol. They helped me begin my journey of success to quitting.

oh please, sitting around trying to smoke less cigs a day is not going to get you anything except a prolonged period of withdrawal. You need to either do it cold turkey or do what I did- cheat. I used Chantix and quit smoking in two weeks. Have not had a cig in about 4 months now. Rarely even want one. At first I got a craving or two every day, but the cravings only lasted for like two minutes. Now, I might get a cig craving like once a week for about 30 seconds, and that is usually because I see someone on tv smoking or am around smokers. If you dont want to make yourself crazy then get a pill, a shot, whatever it is they can do these days. I dont recommend cold turkey, that will just make you feel crazy and you will probably still continue to smoke.

How to quit smoking
It is best to prepare yourself for quitting by removing all cigarettes, ashtrays and other signs of smoking from your environment at home, work and in your car. Seeing them is only a reminder and will hamper progress. Decide you want to quit and be determined. Do not smoke during this time even a little. The one cigarette you have may encourage you to have more, impeding your ability to quit altogether.

Hey you start with learning how to take control over the cigarettes, instead of the cigarettes controlling you. It's true that smoking is addictive, and that quitting isn't easy. But with motivation and a plan, you can do it!Withdrawal symptoms can be uncomfortable, but they are not harmful. They may last for 2-4 weeks, but usually start getting easier after just a few days. But if you're concerned about withdrawal, you may want to consider using a quitting aid. The most common ones are nicotine patches, nicotine gum, and certain medications. They're all designed to reduce withdrawal symptoms.

Hi Shanthosh,

Quit smoking is not impossible.if you will try to quit it then you can definitely quit smoking because there are various methods that you can use if you want to give up smoking like cold turkey, nicotine tapering, hypnotherapy and acupuncture etc.

I feel exactly where you're at, I've experienced the same feelings of helplessness plenty of times too. Sometimes I've just hung in there by a thread, not knowing what to do next.

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

If you want to stop the vicious cycle Please read this article - "Smoking Cessation: The Real Psychology Behind It" by Malcolm Baptiste!!! It's On-Line and it helped me a lot.

Now I have discovered a way out!!!!

This forum is a great place to share our successes and failures, encourage each other, and get answers!!!!

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