Hi guys tomorrow is the day I’m stopping this habit. I have thrown out all cigarettes and everything. I’m a little bit nervous because my previous attempts have failed. But I really want to stop this habit.
I’m cold turkey and a patch during the day is what I’m going to do. Does anyone recommend anything else to help me get through the first few days?

This was the 1st day I was worrying about, since I was back at work. I do a lot of work related driving and usually spend my days smoking while out and about.

this is day 81 for me. I have been told by my surgeon he would not operate on my back unless I stopped smoking for at least 3 months. This was the final push I needed to stay committed.

I thought it woul...

We know now that no forewarned health scares, no money problems, nor threats will stop you from smoking in most cases. It is the true desire to want to quit. I am not saying that you may not have mixed feelings and be a bit afraid of what life will be like without it. Nor that you have to say you hate cigarettes.
Its a journey, like any other. You don't just embark on it.

I thought it would be fun to get to know your fellow passengers.
I just joined this site and am not sure if there will be a response.

I suddenly found my self unale to breathe and ended up in the hospital with pnemonia for 4 days. I quit immediately. this was april 18. I am having a hard time staying off smoking, don't want ...
We had a bit of a discussion on statistics involving quitting smoking. The numbers in themselves may seem dismal, but statistics are set and presented to serve the purpose of selling products. Strangely enough, even the nrt manufactureres put in their small instructions to use their product with councelling. (That would include this forum).
