Knowledge is the key. This is an addiction, just like alcoholism or drugs.

The difference is that the physical withdrawal from nicotine is quite mild in comparison, while the psychological withdrawal is for many people (and I think you are one) quite harsh.

That is why so many people say its a mind game or its all in your head or you need to really want to quit.

It is true that if you don't actually want to quit it is virtually impossible, but you can reinforce your desire to quit by learning to despise smoking. I found using affirmations helped, literally telling myself out loud that I didn't want to smoke and/or that smoking is disgusting, evil, stinking, etc worked. OK you might want to take yourself off somewhere private before you start talking to yourself :confused: but I know that others have used this technique to good effect as well.

Many years ago, when I was at school a "Motivational Speaker" came to talk to us, the only thing I remember from the experience is a phrase, "If its to be its down to me" in other words if we want something to happen we have to get on and do it, we can and will support you but the only person that can stop you smoking is YOU.

You are not a wuss, you just haven't got things sorted in your mind previously. This time can and will be different, this time you must take control over your own life, this time you must not falter. Read about, and understand nicotine addiction, sort out what to do when you get cravings, establish what triggers your cravings and never, never give in!

Best wishes, and I expect to see you in the penthouse 30th April 2010.


Good luck EBT, hopefully this time will be your last time :D

Good luck hun make this quit forever xxx.


You remind me of me. For many years I have been saying that I am going to quit smoking.(I can hear my OH saying Yeah, Yeah, Yeah!!)

Every time I would be determined the night before the quit and then the following morning I would last a couple of hours, climbing the walls, kicking the cats, shouting at whoever came close and then I would find an excuse to smoke, either that or I would become a secret smoker. This would entail trying to find somewhere private to smoke, never thinking for a minute that I would get caught or that I smelled so bad that people could smell me a mile off:o

This time I did my homework.

Went to the NHS Smoking clinic, got prescribed Champix because I knew that I would need help, got myself a quit buddy at work and found this forum and read loads. I have been quit for nearly 8 months and will never go back.:D

If you are determined, and by gods you have to be, then you CAN do this.

Good Luck
