How do I quit smoking?

I smoke a pack to a pack and a half every day.

I badly want to quit.

I have quit a bunch of times.

If you have quit smoking and know some secret to quitting, please share.

I am willing to try anything, but I do live in a remote area and there are no smoking sensation classes around here, so that is the only option I can't try.

I am buying the patches tonight.

  • Get a good plan together, what will you do instead of smoking? draw,read walk, puzzles or jogging

    Work out how much you'll be saving and plan out what treats you will spend this on.

    write down all the reasons you hate smoking to remind yourself of why you are here x x

    drink lots of water and be strong and find the will power to do this!!

    You may not have a cessation nurse but you have our support 24/7

    Go for gold antony ;)

    you've already decided you want to stop smoking, which is great in one respect, DON'T THINK ABOUT THE PAST ATTEMPTS!! they're gone;) think of the future n how u want to feel!! the benefits....YOUR HEALTH!

    can't you go to your gp? you would get the support from there as well and they could advise you as well.

    Hi Antony,

    Welcome to the start of the rest of your life.

    You have done the biggest thing and that is deciding to stop smoking. There is no secret but you have to want to quit. Patches will help you get through each day and so will these fantastic people on the forum!

    If you get a craving, drink some water and go for a walk. Find something else to distract yourself - exercise, a hobby.:)

    Let your friends and family know what you are doing - their support is key.

    Good luck and we are all here for you.:D

    No Smoking Day

  • Hay we have a moderator;)

    I think the patches are a good start but you really need to want to do it. I have tried with patches before but always gone back to smoking. This time is different because i dont want to ever smoke again.

    I have read loads about the horrors of smoking. I think about this everytime i get a craving.

    I dont want to spend £5 a day anymore on smokes.

    I dont want to smell anymore.

    I dont want to smoke anymore, so i am not going too. A craving dont last that long, so you can do it. Think of a day at a time and count the days too.

    Its a great feeling when you go to bed at night and have done another day without smoking.

    And you have this forum. We are all in the same boat and will help as much as we can.
