Dealing with cravings

Posted in Reasons to quit 07 Nov 2021

Hello all,

I’ve been a full time smoker for a short portion of my life.

There are just so many things I would like to do but that involves money.

I have autism and often get use to a routine or habit.

If anyone on here has autism and has managed to give up smoking.

May I please have some advice please.

Thank you.

    Read and learn Lara. Adjust the way you think of smoking.

    I don't have autism, but I have been with this site for almost 3 years and have seen some who I never thought would stick it out and prevail. Some statistics seem to favour some over others. But I am a poker player and play the odds and if I don't have the cards in my favour, I play like I do.

    Don't use autism or anything as an excuse. Stick with us and learn to WANT to quit. BELIEVE that you can, as many had self doubt and surprised themselves. I smoked for over 40 years and never dreamed that I could ever quit smoking, but I did. There is no reason why you can't either.
