Hi! I droped it after 7-8 years smoking. And i never did it later already more than 20 years. How did i do it?
First of all, i started to hate smoking. I have been thinking every time i felt smoke, how bed it is. I was thinking about all bed aspects of smoking for health, power, mind, bed attitude and so on.
Second - i stoped smoking. But in the first week it was hard anouth. And what did i do in that time? - I was running, swiming and pactised all activitys. I guess, you do not want to smoke when you are runnig! And also during recovery perid, you do not want to smoke! Right? So, if you will want to smoke in half an hour - start run or swim again! javascript:emoticon(':D')
In my case i did it just one week. Since that time i never smoked and still really hate it! :)
Good luck!

hey, i was a smoker for over a couple of years and managed to quit quite easily.

first thing to do is throw away your new or half smoked pack and don't have the "okay this is my last pack" mentality.

then use your ego, by telling yourself that you're stronger than any drug and you own your own body.

after a day or two you'll probably start falling sick. it's not a bad thing, because once you're really sick, you wont feel like smoking cos it'll make you sicker. and once you're fully recovered it would have been about a week or two since you last smoked, and the nicotine's effect would have worn out by then. then just ride on it and don't pick up another cigarette.

good luck!

Not sure why would it different for a woman, in your 37 years as a smoker did you look like a h*oker?
Yeah, a short fat bald male prostitute! :P Almost died of starvation!

And yeah, even when I was a heavy smoker I felt the same way about women smoking. Always made 'em look like tramps to me. Double standards? Yeah. So what? Just because I smoked and drank doesn't mean I want my daughter or son doing it. And there is nothing wrong with ex-smokers. I don't try to condemn those who smoke, although I am entitled to my own opinions. I figure, you want to smoke? Go right ahead. You are contributing to the economy. You keep the tobacco growers in business, you keep the lolly companies and mouthwash companies in business, and best of all you keep the doctors & hospital and funeral parlours in business. I personally don't care if you smoke or not. I didn't quit for anybody. I quit for me. It was a personal decision.

But I guess it's a good time for this:

Wow, that would certainly be a wake up call… Hope all is well?
