There's lots of great advice on how to quit smoking all over this board and in various books, etc. I thought it might be cool to put together a thread where people can post the ONE tip that was most useful to them in their quit.
For me, it was so impactful I put it in my signature file, below. I was told to ask myself one question: "How long will you smoke just to avoid three weeks of discomfort?"
That sobering question kept me on the straight and narrow throughout the first few weeks of my quit, until the worst of the cravings were long over. I knew then, and I remember now, that having a cigarette during those first three weeks to relieve the craving, anxiety, or other uncomfortable feeling would inevitably lead to YEARS of more smoking.
So that's the one best tip I've received.
How about you?
