My past failures are mostly due to parents in the home who still smoke. I am torn between wanting to quit, and seeing the cigarettes lying around and being more tempted to pick on up again. There is no way I can get out of the home, seeing and smelling the cigarette smoke, and the withdrawl is what has me returning to smoking every time. I am at a loss of what to do, besides locking myself in my room and dealing with the withdrawl.

I plan once again to try and quit. I know that it is not going to be easy cold turkey, given the years, but it is something that I have to do to improve my over all good health. What I need is a way to accomplish that with smokers around me. I think it is a self-limiting belief to be honest.
I hated smoking. I hated this addiction. I simply did not want to take another single puff and from all the times I attempted to quit and stay off smoking, this time has been by far the easiest. In my opinion, you just have to deeply know why you want to quit and to believe that, instead of believing your self-limiting beliefs. So, before quitting smoking, I think I should find a solution for this issue first.
Can you give any advice or recommend a specific qigong exercise to help restore healthy digestion? Hi Igor. Yes, I recommend that you add Qigong to your morning routine before you worry about quitting smoking.
The article above will give you some tips, and when my book is finished, that will teach you everything you need to know in detail. I started smoking at 14 years of age, I will celebrate my 60th birthday in October,apart from 4 or 5 attempts at quitting , which lasted 24 hours at the most, I have smoked everyday. I am so glad that I discovered this site, as I have been wanting to quit but dreaded the thoughts of withdrawal symptoms.
Totally agree. I had the same experience, smoked 12 years and then went cold turkey. Was fortunate enough to have worked out the principles of the above method on my own, but had I not, this is an excellent guide, and I speak as a nicotine addict. Best decision I ever made — everything got better afterward as I started to have more ability to have control over my life and the other decisions I made. Life stopped happening to me, and I started happening to life. I have to say that I completely disagree with this approach. Hi Andrew. If his approach works, great! It does. Also, the latest theories about willpower and habit tend to agree with the approach I mention in this article.
Perhaps you could explain the differences to us? You have to keep smoking while you read the book, and only setting a date once you have completed the book and ready to implement the tips he outlines therein. Sifu Anthony has done here. I think doing both may be helpful to some people. I quit for two years using zyban and Mr.

And then I started again. But Allen Carr suggests cold turkey is the only way. I was on The champix drug to stop but was struggling 10 days in so picked the book up and it helped so much. Just goes to show the power of the mind eh!! The cough has gotten increasingly worse, and finally when I did research, I found out I had of lung cancer symptoms.
At times I feel so strong, like this will be so easy. And then I get these waves of feeling so helpless, unable, and frenzied for just a pack. Smoking became my lifestyle.

It was a part of my identity, and something I deeply enjoyed. I need your support. I can barely breathe anymore from smoking. I need to quit. Please help. Dear Camila I feel for you be-leave you me. This is unhealthy. Everybody dies regardless of whether they are a smoker or not: you have to make the distinction of whether you want to die gasping for air at 40 or peacefully while surrounded by love ones at This is great advice, after 16 years of smoking a pack or so a day I finally stopped smoking cold turkey. Stopping to Smoke is the best thing I ever did in my life. The withdrawal symptoms the first 2 weeks were very intense but knowing that the cigarette companies had specific engineered chemicals injected into the tobacco to make me feel like this was empowering and motivated me to stop even when I was feeling down and sad without a smoke.
No need to Quit Smoking, just stop smoking, if you fail and light up after a few days no need to panic you stop smoking again until you completely stop smoking. The idea that smoking is so hard to stop is part of the manipulation tobacco companies have subconsciously used. Nicotine will no longer be in your body a few days after your last cigarette. Good luck to everyone that wished to stop, in the short and long term it will be the best decision.
An honest Smoker will tell you that it is harder to live a lifetime Smoking then living as a Non-Smoker that is the raw truth. I really like that last line there, Mike! Coming in here a bit late, but I suspect you will be getting readers for years—even decades—on this particular post. I never set a date.
I turned to vapor, and decided to dial down my smoking.
I smoke half of what I had when I started vaping. I would set periodic time targets up to 3 or 4 hours and they have mostly worked. I have 1. Am I deluding myself?
Tell us what you think!
So with regard to other addicting aspects beyond the chemical , is this relevant? Hi Jeff. I went through a lot of the same kinds of thinking when I quit. Your line about being in sales and thus being unable to afford irritability stuck out in my mind. In the end, I chose to go cold turkey. There are other methods of quitting, but cold turkey, and committing to never taking another puff are the tricks that worked for me and many others.
Hi Valerie. My advice is that you quit cold turkey. Pick a date next week, and then quit. Start preparing your home. Tap into smoking cessation support groups. Tell your family and friends.

I am now on 3 weeks and it is absolute hell! I am on such a roller coaster and it is worse now than it was 1 week ago. However I have something very useful on my side. I have been there, done this and made it. I can say one thing though and that is that this is a different monster. I can tell you that in my personal experience so far cigarettes is more addictive than alcohol, cocaine, marijuana or speed! This has been a tough journey, but my first time quitting smoking ever.
