Star I'm Doing It!
Well, in another thread about New Year's resolutions, I mentioned that mine is to quit smoking this year. So, I bought an e-cigarette and oil. After more than three decades of smoking, I hope this works.

But, enough about me....



I've created this thread for the purpose of being a support thread for anyone and everyone who has the intention of quitting smoking, or who has already quit. It's a thread about tips, methods, encouragement and support for anyone who wants to quit smoking cigarettes.

I haven't quit yet, but my smoking days are numbered.

I don't smoke. But my mom used to. She quit cold turkey, switched from coffee to tea and "smoked" slim Jim's. They felt like cigs in her fingers and it had the smokey taste.


Good luck!!!

RE: I'm Doing It!
Way to go, Bear!

It took me several tries, but what finally worked for me was the Patch.

They tell you not to smoke at all while you are on the patch, but I did, albeit a hell of a lot less than I did without it, as I was weaning myself away..

That was some 12-13 years ago. I don't miss it at all.


It helps if you don't drink alcohol, soft drinks, coffee, tea, or anything else that you might have drunk along with smoking cigarettes, that helps with the Pavlovian conditioning to crave tobacco along with it.

Good luck, and keep us apprised of how it is going


STAY ON IT, IT'S SOOOOOO WORTH IT!!!!!!!

I quit five years ago. The first week was the hardest, after that it was surprisingly less difficult than I would have thought.

RE: I'm Doing It!
Oh boy!

I dont even know how often I actualy tried to stop and failed.

Managed to stop when I was with my ex, because she hated it.

But after she left I stupidly started again.

RE: I'm Doing It!
I'm very good at quitting. In fact, I quit all the time. I've worked quitting into a fine art with every delicate step worked out to perfection. Quitting isn't the problem.........

When I want your opinion I'll read your entrails.
