"I have quit twice. The first time for about 6 years. This time for almost 9. Yah, the first step is hard.....but the relapses can be a bitch. I can go for years without thinking about it and then one day be checking my pockets for a smoke."

"I believe that an adult should be able to ingest/smoke/inject/etc. anything he chooses for whatever reason he has. That being said, my libertarian beliefs are as irrelevant to this particular discussion as your smoking habits. The OP asked how to…"

"Dear god. First of all the irony was intended, so you dont have to take everything dead serious. And second of all dont make judgement based on knowing nothing. I started smoking late, i smoke because i enjoy it and when i dont enjoy it i quit.…"

"Nah to stop smoking isnt that hard, already did it a few times. You just have to keep yourself busy to get over the first few days of insanity. When you sit around beeing bored all you are going to think of is to go for a smoke. One way to do this…"

"Sorry but the best way to stop smoking is to "just quit smoking". Yah....it's tough. I know. But no drugs or patch is going to make you stop. You have to actually want it. The eating thing can be difficult if you are having trouble…"

So, I have come to realize over the past couple weeks that there are some things that need to change in my life.  My primary goal is to quit smoking.  I know smoking is unhealthy, and I never should have started, but at least I'm understanding now that I have to quit, after about a year of smoking.  I can no longer run or be as physically active as I used to be (I was a cross country/track runner and tennis player in high school), and my best friend and my girlfriend have both expressed their…See More
