Flying pig mate...everytime you feel like lighting up do push ups,sit ups etc. If it's not convenient,close your eyes take deep breathes and count to 10. If it's not too troublesome,you should perhaps have a fruit handy.. gd luck, I know it's tuff but initially anyways.

Try the book: Allen Carr 's "Easy way to stop smoking".
It helped me and 3 other people I know. I never believed in book's therapy until I read it myself. You should have a strong desire to stop smoking though.
I quit 2 years ago and feel sooo gooooood!

Or use my method- Go cold turkey! Dun think abt it, it's normally pure habit that we smoke!

Hi maybe you can do reverse Physiology .... just think of "End picture" in mind.. and so horrible enough that you will think twice/3x when u pick up the cigratte butts..

Are you married?? Do you have kids..?? Or r u staying with parents.. ?? So if you know abt how smoking can cause cancer.. imagine if you got cancer... or if your loved ones got cancer coz of taking in your 2nd hand smoke.. Ok.. "Touch wood". I dun meant to curse you or your loved ones.. dun get me wrong.. but more of having such picture in mind.. will make u hesistate to smoke.. After all .. cigratte is expensive.. but.. being sick is MORE expensive!! :???:

Of course, u can also picture urself.. in a fantastic End image.. just like how happy your family is of you.. or how proud your gf is when you can quit ur smoking ... or u can then encourage more smokers how to quit their smoking .. and thus become their inspiration.. :wink:

Or you can try to be involved in something that it is going to make you very very busy.. such that you have no time to think of lighting a cigratte..

It is great that you have such desire to quit.. next is the action.. It maybe unbearable during these period .. but it is all going to be worth it .. =D> Kan Pa Te!! :D
