    The patch and sunflower seeds worked for me. After the first few days it got easier and easier but still had urges. Just start eating sunflower seeds when you get the urge to smoke.

    Great man glad you finally kicked it. The biggest thing is if you slip up and smoke while you drink or something just let it be for that one time and don't start back.

    Patches unfortunately were absolutely useless for me, just like nicotine gums. I would like to try vaping , seems like a lot of guys managed to give up smoking due to e-cigs. I see vapers daily on the streets, and there are fewer and fewer nicotine smokers around, that's a good tendency I think.

    Glad i did it though.

    I hear the "brains" say vaping pg/vg can lead to something they call "lipoid pneumonia"

    I tried vapes , mod tanks, ecigs, carts, etc. Either they choked the shit out of me or gave me a nicotine buzz.

    I absolutely agree. E-cigarettes, vapors, poppers, all this stuff can be also addictive.
    My friend started vaping in order to quit smoking nicotine cigarettes, and became addicted to crack. He even received treatment in a rehab center https://addictionresource.com/drugs/crack/. In my opinion, smoking is much easier to overcome than alcohol or drug addiction. All you need is your desire and willpower.

    I stopped six months ago. Smoked for 15 years. Took 7 times reading the Allen Carr book, last couple of times felt especially stupid - I could almost re-tell whole paragraphs. But hey, it worked

    Can’t imagine myself smoking again unless I get back on the drink, which I will not. I prefer tren now lol

    That’s unfortunately a negative, the #1 carcinogen is tar - weed is way more full of tar than a cancer stick


    On another note: I tried the Jewel thing for the first time(the wife’s sister huffs this shit) actually it was a stronger cheaper generic according to her - holly hell. I have smoked cigarettes on/off since I was 14 - this thing hit me like ton of bricks - it felt to me like I pulled as much nicotine(+whatever other crap it’s full of) in one rip as 1/2 a cigarette has

    She’s 19, had a purse full of these darn things. But, she did completely agree - she feels that it’s no better than smoking cigarettes, just tastes better


    I have a strong feeling our generation & on will not have a lengthy lifespan. We’re just doing way too much, way too fast without knowing any form of long term effects - somewhat similar to folk from the 50’s or so - they smoked about 2-3 packs a day & dropped dead right over 50

    Look at the crap around us, from fen to tren . Let alone the abuse of stimulants is through the roof - from ephedrine to adderall. We use this shit like nothing - fuck, look at our caffeinated drinks


    Oh well,

    Lol, the mods here are good dudes and I know some ppl get all huffy about stuff like that (as is their right not everyone has my opinion) so I try to keep it within the lines..even though I was a bit of a smart ass, still trying to show respect..
    Swim doesn't give a fuck, but respects the guys who run the show..
    Swim is actually a decent guy, he thinks?

    Is it a good idea to switch from cigarettes to vaping and then try to quit vaping? I just thought that if I switched to nicotine-free vaping, it would be easier for me to quit smoking because my body would get this nicotine detox for some time.
    This idea pursued me for some time, and I even googled some information about it. There are contradictory opinions about this way, but I have not much left to do.
    I already found some good mint nicotine-free liquids on thevapecig.co.uk and will probably order them next week. Let’s hope that vapor is better than smoke.

    When you want something bad enough you do what you must. I dropped smoking, drinking and cocaine cold turkey at the same time and never looked back. I put everything into the gym now. It is my salvation.

    Shit. I smoked from when I was 13-25. Got up to 2 packs a day of Kool Super Long. One of the main reasons I never relapsed was that I never want to go through the withdrawals again.

    I think I had my first cigarette at 14 or 15. I was over in the homeland at a night club and my cousin asks me "hey, you want me to get us a couple of cigarettes?" So we got some Lucky Strike singles and puffed away, laughing, drinking, having a good time. After the first square he kept going back for more and we ended up puking in the park by the club that night.

    Well, the next day him and I went and got ourselves our own packs. Within a few weeks we had tried Lucky Strike, Winston, Camel, Marlboro, Pall Mall, Kent, Viceroy, etc. My other cousin got involved, too, but he sucked at holding his cigarettes... I'd always tell him "stop holding it like a fag," jokingly. We'd be walking down the street and he'd drop the cigarette and have to go back and pick it up. Some old man behind us once commented, "I can tell that you're amateurs.." after my cousin dropped his lit cigarette (again).

    Now he's the only one that still smokes. I never really got deep into smoking back here in the States, though. I focused so much on lifting and figured "weed is all I need." So now when I go to Europe I can't help but buy a pack, for old time's sake. I'm lucky that I can do it but not let it become a habit.

    As we all know by now, Europe has traditionally been a cigarette-friendly place. These last few years I've seen less and less of it, especially with the younger generation.

    Samson, didn't realize you were smoking this time. Throw those things in the trash bro, but give me one first

    I meant cravings. For me, I felt similar to when you hold your breath for a little too long underwater and your heart's pounding and your body needs a breath of air. I'm sure it was anxiety that I was feeling.

    I smoked passionatley for 10 years. I did 4 years in prison for posession and distribution of illegal narcotics (amphetamine). Right before i went in in my country they passed a legislation that it is not allowed to smoke in the premises of state owned institutions (that included prisons). I thank god for that legislation, i didnt smoke for 4 years and havent looked back since.
    Smoking is like the stupidest thing you can do... its like 5 eur a pack in my country, if you smoke a pack a day its like 150 eur a month. For what... to smell like shit, get cancer, cough like an old man and to be reduced to going out once per hour so you can feed your addiction ? Now when im smoke free it sounds so stupid to me how smokers say that smoking "is the only thing they have" or something in those lines, when i tell them to quit. Its the only thing thats holding them back imo. I have no need to smoke. You need to take control of your life

    At 5 euro a day, if they gave up smoking, they would have that 150euro a month instead of smoking! I would much prefer that to be "the only thing I have"...
