    Try chantix. It's the devils medicine but it works. I got lucky where I had influenza so bad that I couldn't get up for a smoke... Never went back to it...

    I quit using cigars. even if you dont like them you can get flavored one's a company called drew estates makes a line called ACID they are all flavored cigars that are hand rolled and there r a few that are really good try JAVA, and KUBA KUBA were two of my fav's. I would smoke them at the end of the day at first while still blazing cigs too. Then I went from that to lighting a cigar in the morning instead of a cig , putting it out and lighting it up again when the need came on for a cig. I averaged 1 cigar a day for a few mo. until I lost the sensation b/c I was not inhaling the cigar it was ez to put down when I was ready. Now I smoke a cigar once a week or less
    Enjoy Your Ride!

    C'mon Pikiki you're a badass dude, just put your mind to it, use your willpower, and just smoke one less each day, get used to it for a few days, and then repeat every few days or a week. Piece of cake man. Once you're done you'll be so damn happy you stopped.

    Re: help a friend stop smokein

    I quit smoking a year and 4 months ago. Smoked a pack to 2 packs a day since I was 13 so 15 years when I quit. I used nicorette and still do. I get the generic cinnamon kind at Walmart. It's like $25 for 100 pieces. Even tho I use nicorette still it's a hell of alot better then smoking and stinking like shit all the time. It's amazing how much better I feel too. I've heard about chantix but I've heard alot of horror stories about it too, extreme moodiness, depression, suicidal thoughts, ect. I guess it's alot like tren in a way lol but I'm a sick twisted **** anyways do I figured it was better to go with nicorette. Best advice, even if you do slip up and smoke cuz you will, don't say **** it and keep smoking. Just start over. The gum helps with the oral fixation too. Although it hasn't helped my oral fixation with herm or cobra lmao

    Re: help a friend stop smokein

    I stopped smoking almost two years ago now. I think some people can really underestimate the addiction potential of cigs! My education is specific to substance abuse and nicotine is a drug. I have seen my patients stop heroin and crack easier than cigs. It's difficult because it is socially accepted and easily accessible. A crack head has to find a dealer to smoke crack. A cigarette smoker goes to the corner store. If I were to give you advice it would be to recognize that there are two parts to beating addiction to amoking.

    One is the physiological. This is the actual brain change that happens that makes you addicted to nicotine. Secondly is the behavioral. This is the moments you have become use to smoking. The key to beating cig. addiction is addressing both of these at separate times. The use of chantix, patches, or gum (what i did) can help tie over the physiological aspect long enough to began dealing with making new habits, like not smoking when the car get put into drive. Once those habits begin changing, you can start working on the bodies desire for the cig physiologically by weening off the chantix, gum, or patches.

    Stopping is easier for some than others. This is because everyone's genetic potential for addiction is different. Those that find it easier to stop have to be careful in assuming it is just willpower. In fact, there are neuro-chemical differences in those individuals that make beating the addiction more difficult. It becomes much more than willpower for most.

    Sorry for the rant... this is just a question I happen to know a lot about. Either way man, address both sides separately and under no circumstances turn back. If you have just one, the withdrawal starts all over again. If you are truly addicted to nicotine, there is no such thing as "cutting back." Good luck bro!

    Re: help a friend stop smokein

    I didn't even start smoking till I was 24 and quit at 29. Picked them back up at 34 and now I am 40. I have wanted to bring up this toppic for some time and take a poll of some sort. I decided not to as I was certain I was the only loser smoker amongst guys and gals who are so health and appearance driven. LOL! When the wife and kids are not home I actually smoke while on SI. I can't count the times I couldn't wait to finish my workout to hit the truck and smoke on my way home from the gym. So counter productive. I agree that the ritual of smoking is equally as hard to overcome. After sex, after dinner, starting the car for a drive and so on. Pikiki I will join you in your quest and welcome other members to do the same. The KICK THE BUTT CAMPAIGN!! As a collective we are here to promote better healthier and more knowledgeable members. We talk about the toxicity of compounds all day but we smoke 120 different poisons 20-30 times a day. Really doesn't make sense when put in perspective. I think an August date would give more members a chance to come aboard and prepare.

    Same boat here. Didn't bring it up also for the same reasons. Started smoking at 12 like one a day with a few friends. Been smoking a Pk a day since 18 to my 26 yrs young now. I've quit a few times for about 6 months to a yr here and there but resorted to dipping instead. So I never experience the real withdrawal from nicotine. Help!!
