Jazzy, just take it one day at a time. I've given up for a year and a half, then again for a year and now I'm on day one again. Don't beat yourself up about it. Just focus more on the successes you have and not the failures. I just keep thinking how many cigs I would have had over the periods when I wasn't smoking. It would of easily been in the many thousands:eek:

You can do it, dude, and you will. Just keep reading your signature line:thumb:

Very true, thanks Surf!!! Only smoked the other day and didn't find much enkoyment then, so I hope things will happen on their own as I don't have any cravings. Thanks for the advice butty:thumb::thumb:

The only way I have stopped smoking is firstly avoid the boredom/automatic fags, find something to do....and when having a few beers (toughest time) drink more :rotfl:

In saying that I have had a major problem with my sinuses this year so thats helped me to quite simple say no as I can't breathe the next day.

Quit cold turkey about 3 months ago, work out at the gym 5 days a week too.....I feel great.....funny though because my mind is starting to crave it hard now after 2-3 months, I quit for a year and a half before and went back, but I think I am done for sure this time.:idunno::D

I had that at about the same time, and again at 6 months if I remember. Don't give in though! Every now and then I would suddenly want a cigarette for a few years after giving up, it took me ages to get it out of my system. I don't have any such cravings now.

It's almost 10 years since I stopped my 2-pack-a-day habit. I did it cold turkey. I had cravings for maybe the first 2 years or so, but they gradually diminished. Will power is probably key, but I would suggest a lifestyle change, ie, health/fitness interests, etc. It will help immensely. Someone mentioned early that they easily reignited their habit after 18 years. I believe this would be easy to do for those of us that have smoked previously, as there is a "well worn path" in our brains, or trained receptors that are on standby, to help this along.
I still consider myself a smoker for this reason, but one that chooses not to smoke.

Some people have told me they haven't smoked in 10+ years and still crave it, but I am really disgusted by it at this point and just can't see myself going back now. My habit was maybe 5-10 cigs a day which wasn't too crazy but there are those little moments when I want it, but they are definitly not strong enough to make me actually pick one up and light it.....I would be too upset with myself.
