Default How hard is it to quit smoking? – 12-22-2008, 12:01 AM

I’m planning on quitting starting Aug 21st. My reason is so i can live longer for my child, plus he has asthma and i don’t want the cigarette smoke in my clothes anymore when he breathes it in. Another reason is gas prices are so high now and between gas prices and buying cigarettes i spend at least $80-$100 a month. This will be my first time ever doing this, i don’t even know how to quit or avoid the cravings. I really can’t afford the smoking cessation classes (don’t know if i spelled the word right lol) i just want to do it on my own. I already know that the nicotine gum won’t work because i already chew gum when i’m smoking a cigarette. Need advice please and thank you to all!I have people that will support me, like my boyfriend (he wants me to quit also), co-workers, my mom said she’ll support me but she smokes too and i live with her, i know other family members will be willing to help me.

It’s a piece of cake…when you finally put your mind to it. (It took me 40 years, but I finally made it. I’m convinced that it’s a psychological addiction.)

Hard as hell. I quit for four years after I vapor-locked back in’99. Started up again, stopped, started, stopped…half a pack a day habit now. Nicotine’s more addictive than heroin.Good luck.

Its hard. Work your way up to it. For awhile before you quit , everytime you smoke convince yourself that it makes you want to throw up. It ll make it easier.

Probably after visit of the doctor and the diagnosis of any illness bound to smoking, you will throw instantly… wouldn’t be late already.
