    So, I haven't had a smoke since about 11:00pm last night (its going on 1:00pm wher eI am now). Useing a medication called Champix to help with the cravings... Been on the pills for a few weeks now, and as always with any medication, my body has build up abit of an immunity to the pills, so the cravings are hittin me pretty hard right now, lol.
    This is about my 4th time tryin to quit, and I am damn well gonna do it this time.. The health reasons, to boost my vocals (lead singer in a metal band), and the money reasons... I ran the numbers, and I will be savin around 400$ a month... Crazy eh.
    Any other people out there quit smoking? How'd ya do it?

    Cold Turkey, but I have yet to disassociate drinking with smoking, If I am going out drinking (rarely these days) I usuall ppick up a pack or grub. Then the next day it's gone, just like that. So maybe a pack or two every 4-6 months. If you consider that quitting from a pack and a half a day over a year ago...

    Well, I've treid cold turkey prior as well. It usually starts after a few days of being ill like with flu or something when I normally couldn't even imagine smoking. It's the same way it happened last time, I was sick in bed for like a week, that was the boost I needed. Hey man, all the best, you can what ever you want to. As soon as you get a craving, get up and do something. Cravings typically only last a few minutes, it's when they come regularly that they are difficult but that subsides over time. I wish you all the best.

    I've tried quitting so many times the problem with me is if i try to use the patch or the gum or any other kind of medication I just seem to crave the smoke even more. After awhile I start craving the medication then I just go right back to smoking. Another problem tho is all my friends just give me smokes. I don't even have to ask and when I see a free one being offered I just can't say no. I'll try to quit after high school, to much stress at this place right now and when I'm out and moved away from here no one will offer me smokes for free since no one will know me.

    This is what you do, it's a weird trick my grandfather used-

    Get a cigarette, then just put it in your mouth and chew on it. It should taste like shit and you might not ever touch another one again.



    Nicotine patches!

    HaHa, things like that don't work for me. Cause I know if I chew on it, its gonna taste like my foot after i take my boots off, but inhaleing it is a different story all together, lol.
    Just gotta gut through it all until the end i suppose.
    Although, it has been about 24 hours since my last smoke, haven't even had a single puff of a cig at all today!!!!








    i'm ready to snap

    I actualy had some friends help me move my arcade machine home, 2 of them I told if they helped I would give them some smokes, (The rest of us dont smoke, so I promised soda) (I dont smoke, they wernt my smokes either (My Grandmas))
    They were kinda old, I figure like maybe 1-8 years old

    And heres what one of my friends said as he was smoking one on the way to school (When he found out how old they are)
    "They're that old! Jesus Christ man! Your gonna give me cancer!"

    When i was like 13 years old, my school arranged for a pigs lung to be brought into school, along with another pigs lung which had been in a smoking chamber for about 6 months i think.

    If i can find pictures i will, but the smoked lung had air bubbles popping out everywhere when you blew air into it...Makes me feel sick even now...

    Have you tried a nicotine nasal spray or inhaler?
