I want (need) to quit also. I'm sitting here at my computer with one cigarette left. I know I should just "let this be it" but trying to decide if I should make the 6 mile trip to town to buy more. NO NO NO NO NO

I smoked for 39 years.....and I'm on day #4 of being a non smoker. I planned to do this for awhile, and figure if I screw up, I can begin again. So far, so good. My complete plan is outlined in a two part old blog, and also at MY JOURNEY page on the Smokers Trying To Quit page:

I think the thing that made this as easy for me as it has been is the BRAND CHANGE of cigarettes. There are links to the list to choose a lower tar and nicotine as you back down on this plan, so even if you don't start the plan yet, at LEAST commit to ONLY buying a cigarette that is lower and maybe less addictive.

You can so quit! You have to want it more than anything in the whole world, but if i can do it anyone can! I smoked for half my life (13 years) and was such a crazy compulsive smoker. I gave myself bronchitis and was so close to getting pneumonia and I was still smoking!

I have quit using Zyban, it's an antidepressant. I only took half the dose they gave me, and for half as long as they told me to use it. I had to learn how to deal with my stress. I had a bunch of drama go down of course right when I quit and i felt like life was testing me, on how badly I wanted to stay quit, so that' why it's so important for you to want it. Zyban was 15 bucs if you have insurance, and what it did was it made cigarettes taste so bad. My cig tasted like it fell in a cup of water, then it marinated in its own brown juice, then dried in the sun, and when i smoked it tasted like i was drinking the water along w/ the nasty dried cig. Seriously, disgusting, and i didn't get a buzz anymore off of it. When it came down to quit tho, i had to go through the withdrawels for 3 days, after that it's all mind over matter.

YOU CAN DO IT!! You have to, your life is worth it :)

Welcome! I started young as well and it was not easy to quit. i tried over and over until i guess it finally stuck this time. it took years for me to finally kick this, even with my asthma. not everything works for everyone, so you might have to try a few different things before you can really quit for good. it can be done and it's totally worth it.
