get a script of CHANTIx! that will take the PleaSure feeling out of smoking! most insurances cover it...but if not i think it's around 100 usd a month

I quit smoking 3 months ago.. nicotine patches and lots of gum.. joining a support group also helped

Think about a beautiful blonde woman with everything going for her and a wonderful life and three years later she is anorexic looking and stuck sitting in a chair, can't breathe, on oxygen and all her friends have left her. She has emphysema, she is me. Stop now.

do meditation to get rid of smoking permanently.kriya yog especially

Put pictures around your house and what your lungs will look like if you keep on smoking.

I smoked for seven years and what really helped me was taking supplements. I really liked the B vitamins for stress and valerian root works really good ifyou have a hard time sleeping. On top of this when you get angry, if you do, let yourself freak out, go a head and scream and cry. Change is very hard your body will naturally fight it but your in control. Good luck!

Try the patches....worked for us.

I didn't have any luck with the patch, but I did with Nicorette gum. Drink a lot of water. Take walks. Shower when the craving is irresistible, if possible. Can't smoke in a shower. :) Avoid"triggers" like coffee, tea, etc. When you feel like you just HAVE TO have a cigarette, tell yourself "I'll wait 10 min. & then I'll one." In 10 min., you probably won't have the urge to smoke. Go to places where smoking is prohibited, such as public libraries. Insist your smoking friends go outside. The person/things I got the most support from were:
my wonderful son
and this site:

People don't realize how awful it is to try to break this addiction. The Center for Disease Control has published this staggering reserach:
The 1990-1992 National Comorbidity Survey estimated that 23.6% of persons aged 15-24 years who ever used cigarettes progressed to the final stage in the smoking behavior continuum (i.e., nicotine dependence). This conversion rate (i.e., from any use to dependence) was similar to conversion rates for use of cocaine (24.5%) and heroin (20.1%) (5).

Good luck! You can do this!! God bless! You're in my prayers.
