Reasons I quit

I thought it would be productive to post a discussion on why we quit or are in the process, it might help some of us consider things we nver have and give us inspiration.Continue

that's what i've been doing myself, and im making progress. im down to maybe 2-3 a day sometimes less, i haven't bought myself a pack in a month, but have gotten other people packs because they always give me some on break n stuff haha. but that's helped me cut back tremendously. now its just a leap of faith! i think..see if that helps you cut back to where you don't need them anymore, seems you've already got the correct frame of mind, they practically disgust you :)

I am going through the process of trying to quit. Or at least thinking about quitting. I just don't know where to start, I know all of the reasons that I should stop smoking and sadly they are not enough. Cigarettes are so da@$ addictive! I wish I had never started smoking in the first place. I don't like the smell, the taste or anything about it, yet I can't seem to stop. Maybe with support I will be able to kick this addiction. Any suggestions are welcomed and cold turkey is not an option for me. Baby steps, baby

Hey guys,

Firstly, my name's Dan and I'm not into dreading - I found this website because one of your members linked to my website (The Stop Smoking College). Cheers Andre!

I'm a fully certified smoking cessation expert and I'd like to offer my services free of charge to all members of this website that would like to stop smoking.

You can contact me via or via the chat or Live support systems at and I'll answer any questions you have about stopping smoking. I'll also give as many people as my time allows a free smoking cessation consultation (I do this voluntarily).

Although this may seem a bit spammy, I'm totally serious in my desire to help smokers break free from the chains of tobacco. I'm not selling anything - the program is totally free to use.

I just want to say I just stumbled upon this site and then this support group and I just want to say wow! My wife and I are trying to quit and we've tried many times and hope this time is our last time TRYING to quit and actually be ex-smokers.

You can do it. I'm a little over year, quit cold turkey. You can't have the occasional one, I've been through it so many times, it doesn't work and never will, you have to be done completely. Friends who give you cigarettes after they know you've quit aren't your friends, or are jealous that you can do something they can't.Set the example for them be the the strong one to look up to. I put myself in a situation so that I have no option of going back, a promise that I can never break. I forced myself to overcome the cravings because I have no way out of my promise. The things that you'll notice change are everything tastes better, when you walk outside everything smells better, you'll be happier and more confident, you'll live much, much longer and the government get's less of your hard earned money. Hang in there, your way past the hard part. I don't even remember it being that difficult even though it is, you just stop thinking about it after a while, then wonder why you ever started. Stay strong!

i made the decision to quit smoking about 3 weeks ago. the next day i bought a pack and smoked them all in about 6 hours that made me sick. after that i decided not to purchase any more cigarettes. so since then i have not bought a pack i still smoke the odd one evey now and then mostly when i am drinking with friends, but most days now i go completely without. if i wasnt ready to quit i would have gave in by now and bought some. my week point before was having just one after a decision to stop, i would convince myself that i had to start all over. im finding that having one every once in a while isnt really doing me any good so i think i will start turning down offers from friends who smoke.( i have alot of friends who feel they owe me somehow because iv given them smokes when they were out) i dont need it any more. i can do this!!!

12 complete months of no smoking!!!

Comment by fire dancer on April 25, 2012 at 8:40am

I quit smoking in September of 2010. I had to remove my self from situations that I once smoked...for 3 months I was almost a hermit. But after several attempts at quitting in the past I knew that certain situations made me weak. So I avoided them all together. Which can proved very difficult because, my husband was and still is a smoker. For me it was all about changing my way of thinking. I developed a mantra, " This to shall pass." Anytime I had a craving I would repeat it out load and then find something to occupy my mind, mostly I read...ALOT!  When I was in a place where I couldn't read (my car was a major hot spot for me) I made sure I had lots of peppermints or gum. After almost 2 years, I am still officially a non-smoker. I still have cravings, at the strangest times. But they are no where near as hard to overcome. Anyone can just have to REALLY want it, and there is no shame in not wanting it.

I quit smoking a year ago, and couldn't be happier. I smoked for 15 years and quit cold turkey for my family. It's hard to do, only 4-7% of people can quit successfully, but 95% of the people who stay quit actually did it cold turkey. My dad smoked non-filters for 30+ years and quit cold turkey.

I'm glad I found something on here about trying to quit. I'm at a bit of a funny stage, where I can go most of the week with out rollies (as I roll instead of buying cigs) but when it comes to the weekend when I have to work then I 'need' them. They kinda wake me up and I feel like I can concentrate more. Also, I drink at the weekend, and I'm so used to having a drink and smoking at the same time -.- I know on the good side of giving up is the fact that I wont smell of baccy and smoke and it lessens the risks of x,y,z. but at the same time sometimes I have a childish attitude towards it in the fact that i'd sometimes say 'hey, what does it matter? we're all going to die someday'. I guess one way I can feel more awake is by getting off my butt and going for a walk or run in the morning but I've gotten so used to having a cigarette at work on my break and smoking afterwards that I'm like...  "What do I do?" ._____.
