    Tips and personal experience on stopping cigarettes.

    I want to stop but I have no Idea where and how to start (stopping). The will is midly there but i dont know which path to take? Cold Turkey? Meds? Patches? Anyone has their story to share?

    I guess only you know which path to take, because different paths work in different ways for different people. Only you know yourself and what could work better for you. If you use patches then you might have to deal with quitting patches too. My boyfriend stopped smoking and started using patches and he's been using them ever since. When he wanted to stop the patches too, it was difficult and had to use them again.

    I stopped smoking when I got pregnant, and at some point after I gave birth I kind of smoked again for a short amount of time, just because I missed the habit, but it literally felt as I was poisoning myself and I couldn't stand the smell or taste anymore. It was giving me headaches and nausea. And I don't want to do this to myself.

    You need real motivation.

    VAPING is the only way. Do some research

    All other methods lead to failure.

    I have seen many people successfully give up the dreaded nicotine using vaping.

    I second this both my folks stopped when I was on the way. Pregnancy seems to be working fine.

    I was on and off for years starting at like 15. I'd smoke while drinking or getting high at parties... pretty much from 15-23 was on and off. I could smoke regularly for months and months and then just stop without any problems or serious cravings. I don't smoke at all now (25). It just makes my body feel like shit at this point.

    It's mostly a mental/habitual thing. After 3 or so days of not smoking your body isn't physically addicted to nicotine anymore and, as with most addictions, it's just all in your head after that.

    I quit cold turkey. For me, it was willpower and realizing I am poisoning my body.

    Don't smoke it. Eat it
