Answer #3

my father has been smoking for 28 years now, lolz and I’m telling ya… you won’t be able to stop unless you REALLY just WANT to!! if you wanna stop but not convinced, it won’t work!! trust me on this one!! excersizing program would work, I guess, but here are some tips I got for you: Top 10 Tips:-

  1. Start with some pre-preparation by ensuring that you really do want to quit smoking and understanding why you smoke. Are these reasons powerful enough to motivate you when you are faced with those tricky situations? Write down your reasons for quitting. You may want to take a look at some of the benefits of quitting.

  2. Set yourself a date for quitting. Try and choose a date that will be stress free but when you can find plenty to do to keep yourself busy. Try and set a date within about two weeks of reading this.

  3. Ask your doctor for advice. This is especially important if you have health problems or are concerned about issues such as weight gain.

  4. Consider finding yourself a quitting partner relatives, work colleagues and friends are a good place to start. Set a date to quit together and you will be able to give each other support.

  5. Tell your family and friends about your intentions. Ask them for their support before you quit and explain that you may not be yourself while experiencing withdrawal. When you reach your quitting date rely on those that have been most encouraging for support.

  6. Think about starting an exercise program and a sensible eating plan. Again speak to your doctor or dietician. Exercise will give you more energy and help you to relax and relieve stress.

  7. You should know what triggers your desire for a cigarette, such as stress, the end of a meal, drinking in a bar, etc. Avoid these triggers while you are trying to quit or if that’s not possible, decide how you will deal with the triggers.

  8. Decide what you will do when you experience cravings. As we’ve discussed deep breathing, a short walk and keeping you self busy will help to take your mind off the cravings. Perhaps you can think of other ways. Write them down. Remember these cravings will only last for 3-5 minutes at a time.

  9. If you have tried quitting before maybe you came across a stumbling block which we have discussed such as finding something to do with your hands. If so, you need to arm yourself with a solution to these foreseeable problems. Get yourself a pen, or stress relief aid to fiddle with, if occupying your hands is a problem.

  10. Be positive and confident you can quit. You have spent time and energy planning how you will deal with the task ahead. You can and will do it if you persevere. Ten of thousands of people are quitting every day around the world. You can be one of them.

Answer #4

they have nicotine gum for smokers. and they have patches. always try to have a straw of gum with you for ssomething to chew on. [:

Answer #5

try the cigs that help you stop smoking there just like reg. cigs the more you smoke em the more the cravings for cigs stop then you will not want another again.

Answer #6

I am not a smoker, but I have heard that eating vegetables like cucumber help. Something with making the nicotine last longer in the blood system… which makes you crave cigarettes a little less. There are people who hypnotize you to make you quit, but I don’t know how that works.

Answer #7

thanx,,, but I hate veg.. but no choice have to try that way

Answer #8

Good Luck Pixie. I started when I was 9. Really got going in mid teens and was up to 2-3 packs a day at the time of my last cigarette. (Cold turkey.) I tried stopping several times - “It’s bad for me.” OR “It’s too expensive.” (When it was $8.00 a CARTON!) When you get a reason that motivates you, then you will stop. In my case, I had a toddler son and he was chewing on anything he could fit into his mouth, including my pack of cigarettes. Right then it struck me. How was I going to tell him not to smoke, while puffing on one. At the same time a co-worker challenged me to see who could stop the longest. (I won, and kept right on going.) I kept a plastic bowl of ice cold, bite-size pieces of veggies and fruits. I was a total bear / bi*ch for 3 days. It wasn’t easy and it took 7 years to totally lose all cravings, but I know that if I smoked one today, I could immediately be back on them. (That’s how addiction works. Once the genie has been called, it can return REAL, REAL fast!!!) The motivation that gets you to quit is different for each person. And I did it cold turkey. If you have some of the gums and patches, it may be easier. (But, does one get ‘hooked’ on those??)

Again, Good Luck!!
