I just finished "Easyway to stop smoking" book by Allen Carr, a british author. Before reading the book, I tried so many times to quit smoking but i could not quit. The craving that made me mad.

The author has explained best way...
My hubby will be 30 days smoke free May 26th. We are both on Champix, he quit after the starter pack and I’m on the continue pack & am still smoking. I have cut it back to 4 or 5 a day from 25, but I can’t get this nicotine monster out of my brain. Arrrggh

Will be quit for 9days at 9pm tonight. Cold turkey and strong will power ,even though my partner smokes I haven't had the urge.

I started preparing for a half marathon in next 4 months. So I desperately want to quit and I tried many times but failed. This time I wanted to use my full effort and concentrate only on up coming marathon
10 days since I decided enough was enough and stopped cold turkey. Today has been the worst day of all. On the drive home, I found myself doing a lap of the supermarket carpark with the intention to stop and buy a pack. Luckily, my usual spot was taken. I took that as a sign and came home instead. Close call. Too close! Hopefully I can be stronger tomorrow!!
I’m on my third day, and my withdrawal symptoms have been very trying I’ve been feeling nauseous, dizzy and experiencing head aches, the withdrawals are very difficult and want to feel normal again but staying strong
Im on day 2 not smoking, using nicotine patches and quick mist mouth spray.
I've had numerous failed attempts over the 22 years of smoking, always cold turkey which was miserable for myself and everyone around me.
The patches seem to help, don't feel so edgy. I've been planning this quit day for some time I've put my name down for half marathon at the end of the year so have a focus.
