The person has to be willing to quit, if they don't want to then it's going to be hard to convince them..you could try and show them the disgusting truths, like pictures of smokers lungs, teeth and other things. Or give them facts about people who smoke and what happens to them. Hope I helped
stop buying cigarettes for yourself, go cold turkey, go into a sauna, do it frequently and spend about 30 min. to an hr. in there; you will sweat out the nicotine which is the chemical that makes your body crave cigarettes.
It's hard to stop smoking even when you start you can't get The taste out there is one way you can take chantic's it will help you to stop smoking warning if you take it and still smoke your stomach will hurt
Well im working out what my fears are and replacing them with the facts of each situation so i can stop worrying about bullshit and am going to let myself have my basic human needs met with me its a bit about fear of rejection and other stuff, im going to work through my issues take care of myself,do something i want to and handle my responsibility. p.s. imagine what i can do with the rest of my life without the need for my not so very nice most trusted companion, maybe a vision board [pictures glued to like cardboard of positive future i would like] ,dunno , Be honest with my self, and forgive me for all the uninformed choices that ive made learn and move on and look at whats likeable about me in my eyes and i can learn understand and change whats not, to be quite honest i feel a bit bad about something what ever it is so i smoke sometimes its like a reward too [i know that's bad],Their is other ways for copeing with the physical effects im going to try the flour essences ive got as mind redirection, nicotine, replacement therapy is not the option for me, in my opinion that will just drag things out longer
From pure experience.....COLD TURKEY and never look back!!!! Ignorantly I began smoking at age 11 and it would take me weeks to finish a pack (that was even giving alot away...you know, gotta be cool....DUMB!!) anyhow I quit at age 24 smoking 1-3 packs daily all by myself...quit ABSOLUTELY COLD TURKEY and have never smoked a single one since and am now 50. When I began, packs were like 49 cents, when I quit cartons were about $10....hell, I see packs at over $4 so I hate to know what cartons run these days. Not only are you slowly killing yourself in health, you are also quickly in wealth!!!
Chew gum, have a friend who is willing to MAKE you stop by being there for you and yanking that thing outta ur mouth everything it gets CLOSE. U can go to rehab and get those patches. Hope all goes well :D
I have been SMOKE FREE for 3 years now, I used Champix a prescription from my Dr. and also lots of will power. Also stay away from people who smoke for a while, so you aren't as tempted. The pills actually weaken your cravings for cigarettes. I have posted the website: http://champix.com/en/learn-more/ I hope it helps, and good luck!
Most smokers already know that it's unhealthy, expensive, a nasty habit, that we're socially unacceptable to most people that don't smoke; we've seen the films and the heartache from a close friend or family member that passed because of smoking. Smoking is an addiction for some and that's why we have such a hard time quitting. Rest assured, we have probably tried to quit yet failed many times. We keep trying. Our doctors tell us to stop, we're tired of standing across streets from where we work (or not getting a job at all because we smoke or have smoked recently), tired of standing in the heat and rain. Cold turkey works for some, chantix, the patch, e-cigs also help. Some people are strong willed and can quit from that alone. What I can tell you is if you are truly set on trying to help someone, what doesn't work is nagging them. We've all heard it 1,000 times and more, over and over again. Included are people who clearly see us smoking outside yet come close just so they can mutter "ugh" when they pass by or wave invisible smoke as they pass by. That's just another way of nagging us. I hope they don't have any bad habits.
I smoked for 20 years...one day I decided I had enough shortness of breath just from walking to the mailbox. I quit by carrying a pack of cigarettes with me but not carrying a lighter or matches. When I got the urge I took one out and pretend smoked it...without lighting it. Do this a few days and it will help rid your body of nicotine while satisfying the physical habit. You have to want to quit, no gum or drugs or hypnosis will help until you are ready to give it up.
Its easy just dont buy any and if it is tempting than just stop carrying it around and it might take a while but just say to your self every puff is 1 less day you'll live or 1 less breath you'll have later
Smoke your last one and never touch them again. Suck it up. Your body will lose the physical addiction within 3 days or less depending on the person. The mental addiction never entirely goes away but it gets easier with time. Eventually you will not want them anymore. The coughing will stop and food will taste better. You will have more energy then ever before. The patches and pills and the gum are just a waste of time and money. They just postpone the inevitable. Your mind will eventually change if you want to quit bad enough. Cigarettes actually taste awful. The nicotine addicted brain fools you into thinking that they taste good so you will light up. When the physical addiction wears off, it is all in your head after that. It was the hardest thing my wife and I have ever done but it is so worth it. In 2 months it will be 2 years.
My mother smoked for 27 years. Had a back pain, went to the doctor: xrays and then biopsy. Cancer, lymph gland. First the doctor said "a year" then it was "six months" and then it was "better celebrate Christmas early". It was three months from the time we found out to the day she died. Cigarettes did not taste good (mentally) after the biopsy. She just stopped. And the other smokers on her hospital floor? None of them wanted a cigarette, either. No one ever thinks it's going to be them..... and when you are looking at death it all seems stupid and avoidable how you got there. Maybe you need to find some people that are "paying the price" and your probable future may be avoided?
I smoked for 30 year's and after my neighbor told me one day that i had woke him up coughing one morning when i had my deck door's open in the summer time. He told me that he was very concerned that if i continued to smoke that i would not be around to see my youngest son graduate. I began praying to God and asking him to give me the desire and will power to quit. I picked a date that was special to me and it was my baby brother whom had died birthday. I also chewed on the coffee stir straws that helped a ton and was not harmful to my teeth. and one more thing that sounds odd but did help was when i had the desire to have a cigarette i would hold my breath for 15 seconds and the desire for the cigarette was gone when i exhaled.I know everyone is different but if you truly have it in your head and commit to it and understand it only has as much control over you as you allow it to to have, you can beat this addiction and you will feel so much better! But the first thing is to ask God for help and he will help you if you help your self. God Bless and to each person whom wants to quit i pray for the desire and will power to over come this addiction.In the name of Jesus i pray...
its very easy.. on first when you feel you want to smoking go and running 5 minute and after you feel again go to buy some sweet and eat it and dri nk water so much and everyday you should go and run or swim or you shoukd choice the sort you like it.. and should eat some healthy.. and throw all some for smoke out throw it all and dont think about it.. just try it 2,month you will be healthyand forgot about to smoke.. and after go to check in doctor i hope this helper its make you be healthy and believe it ... thank you^^
I've heard from friends that going cold turkey is the only way, but I would gradually cut down. Figure out about how many cigarettes you smoke every day, on average. Take that number down one cigarette every three days until eventually you are down to zero. The key to your success will be how badly you really want to quit.
in my opinion ,it is so easy ,just you stop to buy cigarettes , and stop to go with people who may invite you on some cigarettes ,, and it will be finished from your life ,, it is an irritating habit in my opinion ,not an addictive one as many try to show it ,, just be confidential and you can dominate everything not just in your life but all around you ,,,,
If you are smoking around a pack a day the best way to quit is cold turkey. As Fpike stated earlier you will get rid of all of the nicotine in your body within 72 hours. In that time try to do as many things that trigger your craving, ie drinking coffee or alcohol. because this is the time in which you will have the most will power to ignore the cravings. Something to remember is that by not smoking other drug interactions, like caffeine, will be stronger.
I think smokers have smoking as a habit, so you can try helping them to find another habit, e.g. having some sugar when want to smoke or walking. Smokers need quick it as a habit with strong awareness of being far away of it. Turn to a professional doctor when smokers replies on smoking heavily, even hurting their health.
I quit smoking in 1986 and I went through a smoking cessation class. I was given Nicorette gum and used it and chewed a lot of gum. Also sweets such as gum, hard candy, etc. is helpful. You have to really want to quit. You may gain weight but will lose that later. Determination is the key.
Good question Let me tell you my experience with Quit Smoking I smoke been I was 12 years old to now i am 27 years old One day I threw a pack of cigarettes and decided to quit smoking I stay Quit smoking for 6 months The results were fantastic Increased weight And more energy Cost-effectiveness in the work and a lot of vigor and vitality But when the first problem coom to me I went directly to the cigarette I do not know why or how smoked Remains Smoker :(
Seek God!!! Make a commitment to be free from smoking. Stay strong and don't go back to that old and ugly habit. Read the bible, pray, find spiritual help in your community. You are very young, think of your future smoke free, how wonderful and healthy you will be. Best wishes!
You have to convince yourself to quit. Think what is more important to you, your family, your health, job and/or your financial stability. We are all aware what cigarettes will do to you. I smoked for 33 years, quit twice and the last time, I asked God to help me quit and he did. it is very powerful. There are several ways to start you have to convince yourself. I can now smell people who smoke, it is stinky. To me the woman who smoke - does not smell a true lady.
There is no easy way to quit but there are some tricks to help you get thru. Try taking deep breaths when your craving a smoke. Often the only time smokers take a deep breath is when taking a drag from a cig. Your body still wants those breaths and the only way it knows how to ask for them is with a craving for a smoke. Excercise is a big help too. Keeps good endorphins flowing in your body, helps with cravings and crankiness. And most importantly, commitment required! If your not committed nothing you do will help all that much. Put a picture of your child on your pack of smokes, a picture of that flat screen tv you want to buy on your fridge, a flyer for the XboxOne with $520=58 packs of cigarettes written on it. Whatever your motivation keep it foremost in your mind. Good luck!
Go to the hospital, and stare into the face of a friend or family member after they've had half of their lung removed,....very motivating. Watching them wretch in pain, cause the drugs aren't strong enough is an extra. Months later, you can catch a friendly reminder when they can't seem to catch their breath.
The Truth is you cannot do it by yourself quitting smoking, there is no easyway to quit smoking. the only thing to do is Ask God..Read the Bible (Jeremiah 10:23) "O Lord, I Know that the way of man is not in himself: it is not in man that walketh to direct his steps". (James 4:7) "Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you". All this scripture will help you to Quit Smoking. Fear God..and let God will guide you the true Pathway.

I smoked for 30 years, a pack a day and surprisingly the RX Chantix worked like magic to stop the nicotine withdrawal symptoms and I completely forgot about smoking until so much time had passed that I finally noticed I'd forgot about smoking and thought "This is great, I don't even miss it!" That was at least 3 years ago and given the cost of the habit I'm just very grateful. Who can afford $6.00 a pack or what is it now anyway? I thought I'd tried every way there was including prayer but all that did was make me feel guilty which increased my feelings of withdrawal!

Well, I quit when the biopsy came back positive. High grade invasive bladder cancer. And the two weeks in the hospital recovering from a 6 1/2 hour surgery gave me more time away from the smokes. Then during the course of chemotherapy, everything make me want to puke (even a drink of water) so I still didn't restart. Still alive, though. Just quit, dammit!

To be honest, i've smoked cigarettes and i'm only 14, but it was only because my Grandma died and i had to get some stress off of me. The way I quit was not thinking about cigarettes and just thinking of other good things besides my Grandma's death. R.I.P Gram 8/4/13
The most important thing is the will of the Smoker. Chewing gums and taking meds is okay, but determination is the main thing which boosts the ability of achieving your goal. So smokers, trust yourselves... YOU CAN DO IT !!

I smoked for 24 years. One morning my husband and I were both out. We decided neither would buy any and we'd quit. I was miserable all day. When my husband came home I found he'd bought cigs right after leaving in the a.m. and had happily smoked all day. I was so angry with him I never smoked again. That was 24 years ago. The moral is: you must be REALLY motivated. :)
To quit smoking is really difficult task but remember nothing is impossible , I was also a smoker but soon I realized it is degrading my health so I had to quit it and I did it for sure that I choose was that I made myself feel that the taste of cigarette makes me feel vomit slowly I could gain over it and now I am no more a smoker.
To get rid of one habit you have to indulge yourself fully into another habit which fantasies you a lot. Get yourself involved completely to Yoga, and other exercises. Smoking cannot be quit in a single day. But if you have a determination and will power, remember that no one can stop you to quit it
