    Reversing The Smoking Habit

    Greetings, I am a male age 76..... I smoked from age 20 to age 50...quite cold turkey at age 50....No urge to ever smoke again. In very good health....Play tennis most everyday. Cigarette smoking creates a very strong invisible craving force in the mind and body. Most people will try all sorts of ways to flee from this force.... Why? Because how can they confront such a strong incoming craving force that they cannot even see? I thought if I can destroy the closest thing to this incoming force...I....

    Hoarseness and dry cough days after quitting

    I quit smoking 11 days ago. I am using the lozenges and besides being irritable occasionally, I do not have withdrawal symptoms. I have no doubt that I will quit successfully. I smoked for 12 years, quit for 8 years, life happened and I started smoking after hanging with other smokers during a time of stress. This time, I have been smoking for 8 years and I am done. However, just a couple of days after quitting, I felt like I had a cold...you know the kind that settles in your chest. I guess I started....
  • Ladies: Quitting smoking

    Tomorrow (6/24/17) will be 3 weeks of quitting smoking for me. HURRAY! It was tough, don't get me wrong. The first day (a Saturday), I thought about having a cigarette every moment all day. The second day was a bit easier; I still thought about smoking but not as often. Everyday has been a mountain. 3 weeks in and I have to say, I wake up now not craving a cigarette. There are moments where I think: Wow, I'd really enjoy a ciggy right now. But it passes, every time. I'm using the patch....

    Must Quit

    No ifs ands or butts' I must quit smoking! It makes me angry that I still enjoy something that is so very bad for me. I feel like a loner because people cannot believe I haven't been able to quit smoking yet. And actually I can't either. Ive had so many opportunities, but cannot seem to carry through. I get upset, or angry, or need to just get away. So where do I head- to the back deck for a cigarette. Help?

    Vaping as a heathier substitute

    Switching from smoking traditional cigarettes to vaping was quite easy for me because I found great substitute - e-cigarette. Small, discreet, easy to handle. If someone is looking for something like that, there is a great place that has devices in great prices! https://www.migvapor.com/vaporizers/vape-pen For me it was a life saver, and now I am lowering my nicotine dose to give it up completely in some time! I recommend it to everyone!

    Desperate for help, with special circumstances!!

    I am a long-term 1 pk per day smoker, truly at the end of my rope! I've tried more times than I can ever count to stop, and failed repeatedly. I've questioned my commitment, tried different medical quit smoking aides, etc...all to no avail. Are there people out there, like me, who are truly beyond or too late to stop, you think? Oh, plz let me add this, many advise physical activity, ie: a brisk walk, exercise, etc to work off stressful moments and it makes sense. But, after suffering a brain....
