When I had my job I smoked at least a pack a day but then I lost my job and about 2 weeks later I quit cold turkey.

I tried to start smoking once, I wanted to see how hard it would be to quit, well, I smoked about 5 then I found it was too much of a hassle, and I stopped, I don't see whats so addicting about it, maybe I didn't smoke enough, it tastes like shit though, how can people like that shit?

From only experience all I can say is; You're in for one hell of a hard life for the next 3-ish months.


It's not the lack of crimes that values your morality but your capacity for contrition.

I smoked for 7 months when I was 16, then I quit cold turkey. My mom did end up finding out and offered help, but I refused nicotine patches and nicotine gum, and while my withdrawal was total shit, it was very short, only 5-6 days. If I had patches/gum, it's would have been a month or two. You need to go without nicotine as long as you can, when you're in withdrawal and you put any nicotine in your system, it will only make it worse and take longer.

Now I'm 17, I started smoking again after I was nearly killed in a motorcycle accident. My bike was totaled, I broke my arm, my back was injured, I needed some way to cope an yeah. I only smoke 4-6 cigs a day though, which was my pattern when I was 16. I don't know how much you smoke, but by the sound of it, you're probably smoking a pack a day or more.

Here's what worked for me:
-Get rid of ALL your cigarettes. Even if you think you can hold your temptation, two days later you won't. Trust me.
-Don't hang around anyone that smokes until your physical withdrawal is over. The smell or just seeing it will induce a craving.
-When you go to the gas station to get gas, don't even go inside. Just use a card at the machine if you can.
-Tough out the withdrawal and don't use patches or gum, although since you're probably a more heavy smoker I stand to be corrected here.

It was easier for me because since I've always been underage, I can't legally buy them and it makes quitting easier. But stay away from sources of tobacco/nicotine until you get out of withdrawal.

I know it sounds crazy but I kind of want to get addicted to something just to see if I have to power to quit.

There was a study done showing those who talk about what they want to do are a lot less likely to follow through with it than people who keep it to themselves.

Drop the money you would spend on smoking per week in a jar instead. Give the jar to a friend so you don't have the urge to use the money to buy more smokes. At the end of the month look at your cash flow, you'll be surprised at how much gas money, beer money, or spending money you've saved.


Yea, I farm Anal Penguins. Do something about it.

Well my uncle's an ex-smoker (Among other habbits) and he's quit since the 80's or something like that, and I visit him quite a bit since he's the only family member I have that doesn't live all the way in the states, and he still to this day says "I could use a fuckin' smoke right now!"

That sucks. I can't believe it stays in the mind that long. The lesson we have learned here? Smoke weed.

All of my mates at my college hate smoking, and they keep telling me 'don't get started'. I give you props if you give up smoking.

This is why I smoke weed and not cigarettes, my father still smokes cigs and I've always hated second hand smoke as a kid, and there were also second hand smoke adds which were kind of scary at that time.

Most of my friends smoke cigs and herb, so quitting cigs for them would be completely separate from their weed craving.

I've quit plenty of times. Heh.

But, don't do the patch, or chew gum, you're just switching what you're addicted to doing. Just quit cold turkey. first 2 days suck, but after that its relatively easy.

Why quit once when you can quit several times!

I smoked my first cigarette with the drummer from DOA a few months ago haha. The whole time I was just thinking "What's the point of smoking this if it isnt gonna get me high?".


"Is this not a reasonable place to park?"

Nicotine is a psychoactive substance, meaning that it does get you high. It's a stimulant that causes feelings of relaxation, sharpness, calmness, and alertness. Just because it's not illegal doesn't mean it's not "hhhrreeaall bro".

A while back when I quit smoking (ended up taking it up again, though, cause I got a smoker girlfriend, then kept smoking when we broke up, and still do) I sort of did a whole lifestyle change. And along with that came eating healthier, and exercising/working out.

I found that after working out, I'd realize exactly how winded I was, and how much smoking was holding me back. I just slowly cut them down to a point where I was only a social smoker (when drinking with friends, pretty much always at bars)

But you'll definitely have some withdrawls, but the best thing about hitting the gym is that feeling when you're walking out the door after a workout. You look back and always say to yourself "That was the best way in the entire world that I could have spent that last hour of my life"

Another thing to look forward to by being healthy all over is getting healthy friends. Less peer pressure.

So put some cocoa oil on those stretch marks, you fatass, and get to the gym.

Never smoked before but the hardest part of breaking a habit is trying to avoid seeing things that got you into the habit. Kind of like people who try to quit fapping, try to avoid looking at or talking about fapping/porn/hentai and it helps. With smoking I guess you would wish to ventilate all of your rooms and maybe use some stuff that produces a nice scent like fruits or flowers.

20 days to form a habit, 20 days to break a habit, good luck to you SevKat
