One of the most useful tools i have found in my quit journey is research.......yes RESEARCH, im all for community based help forums, but everybodies journey is different, and what works for one does not necessarily work for another, i have spent 12 months and countless hours researching into all sorts of things, from tools that other people have used to give up smoking, what it takes to keep weight off when giving up, and of course other methods besides the ones mentioned on this partifcular site, including the use of e cigarettes (both non nicotine and nicotine based) which are of course not popular on this site, because of sheer ignorance and fear of even looking into this method, of course im going to upset a lot of people by even mentioning this, but i do honestly believe that e cigarettes may help some people who are willing to look into this; many doctors see this as the future in quit aids, nicotine of course IS addictive, but is NOT carcinogenic, it is deadly in its pure form, but then so is caffeine. People are using patches, lozenges, sprays etc, what do you think are in these? In fact do you even know what is in them? Its not just nicotine. E cigarette contain vegetable glycol and propylene glycol which are both used in everyday products for human consumption, food flavours and your choice of whether to add nicotine or not. Its atomised by batteries, into water vapour via a low voltage coil through a filter medium. There are a couple of great australian forums which are related to e cigs (it is called vaping, due to vapour NOT cigarette smoke) and lots of willing people who are more than willing to help new members to get off the cigarettes. Search online for vaping communities! I myself am over 300 days quit, i have a number of family members/friends who have quit cigarettes in this way. I acknowledge this may not be for everyone, but i put it to you, for those that are willing to look at other methods, especially those who are struggling with cold turkey, patches, lozenges, and other quit cessations.
