Join a supportive community that can help you quit for good!
I like this forum because there is no need to be shy. I registered using gmail and made up a nickname for myself just like many of you. I can post here and don't have to worry about privacy. So far, I've not seen anyone judge anyone else here and I guess if that happens then the community itself will expel those kind of things. I believe there is something powerful about these kind of communities, especially if you are someone who needs to tell something to others but you don't want to be judged for saying something. Even if you tell something thats not correct, I don't think it matters. Maybe for some of us its important that we simply share and make ourselves known. I think that we are all "trying" to find our way and maybe what we believe in the beginning might change later on as more experience is gained. That means that what you honestly share now is truth for you now at this moment. Maybe its a dim light compared to shining brilliance but its still light and maybe some people can't take too much light all at once, so your dim light might help them follow the light without the fear of being consumed by it all at once. Point is, everyone can share something useful if they put their minds to it, no matter what stage we are at.
I've seen here that some people try to cut down, some take NRT products, others with Champix/Zyban etc .. but the most important thing I guess is what works for you individually.
As for me, I can only share my own experience which is quitting cold turkey and staying away from any kind of nicotine in any form. That might seem harsh to some while understandable to others. Whatever works for you, then good for you! This is a quit smoking forum so I guess that at the end of the day if you managed to quit smoking, no matter how you did it, then you've achieved a goal!
