Cold turkey. Four or five days of nervousness and then after 40 Years I was a free man.

This is until the first deadline at work when the nerves just burn for everyone. If you smoke, bro, then the hand itself reaches for a cigarette at that moment. They say vaping helps reduce cravings for nicotine.

Vaping is just as bad or even worse than smoking, studies are showing . the only way to quit is cold turkey everything else is just a waste of money. Only when you have the true desire to quit will you succeed.

My wife, hah!
But really, when you really want to quit you will, quitting for others never works, work on your personal growth, and at some point you will drop the cigs.

I started when I was 15 and quit a year later because I was already up to 10-15 per day. I quit suddenly as, when I was having coffee with a friend, I didn't realize that I was chainsmoking and had about 17 I think in an hour and a half. When I got up on my feet to leave, I instantly fell back on the chair and felt nauseous. For 3 years I didn't touch one cigarette, but then, when I was 19, I started smoking again. Woefully, to this day I haven't managed to quit, although I tried a few times. Maybe next time I literally collapse because of the 'burning sticks' I'll quit again and this time stop taking up the nasty habit all over. But honestly, if you don't have your mind set on quitting, I think it's impossible to do it, no matter how many tricks you try.

I personally do not smoke, however my father says he quited smoking just because he hadn't already received any pleasure from this thing. Just your psychology works here.

There must be a real desire to quit this habit. I haven't come to this yet.

I used to have a really hard time without smoking. And it's not just me for cigarettes. What helped me quit smoking was this buy pure cbd oil from cbd magic at https://cbdmagic.ca/. I started using these oils to good effect. They helped me get over my addiction. Now I only use these oils when I am depressed and want to calm down.

I quit smoking about two years ago. After multiple tries, I finally understood that it was better to quit suddenly. I thought about taking Chantix, but having checked the info about it on the Canada Drugs site, I found out that patients have reported a great number of neuropsychiatric side effects, so I decided not to take it. Every time I wanted to smoke, I started playing my favorite game, called a friend, or ate something, I mean I did everything not to think about smoking. It took some time but I got used to it.
