I have to share this with you, I have smoked 20 a day for 5 years+ now, probably longer but we all like to pretend we haven't been long term smokers.
I haven't bought a pack in 7 days and I have no desire to either, here is how I did it.
Half the battle is getting past your cigarettes running out which creates panic in your routine so you smoke again. You know the drill, leave one in a pack...

I know that the most important thing I have to do is get through those intense urges, especially the morning ones, which I can do by allowing the urge to pass, and distract myself by carryin...
