I read a book called "The easy way to stop smoking" seems cliche but it actually worked where the patches and tablets failed and the only reason I failed was because I was offered a ciggarette when drunk then went to buy a packet.

    Staying away from that scene until you know you wont cave would def help.
    Every time you say no though it will be easier to say no.

    There is a stop smoking ad here and it says "Willpower is like a muscle. The more the use it the stronger it gets."

    The best way to quit is not to quit but to stop smoking, we are not quitters, another thing I found when I stopped all the patches, tablets, books, donít help at all simply because they remind you of the cigarettes I tried to quit few times but I last about seven days and one day I was smoking and the smoke it was burning my eyes so I put the cigarettes in my locker at work and never touched them again. Avery time I open my locker where there but it was like any other thing that can hurt me I stay away from it

    That make a lot of sense actually! Maybe you should get Martyn to train you - get him to repeatedly offer you a cigarette at random times throughout the day, and then if you take it he can slap you in the face and say 'don't be daft - you're quitting, remember'.

    Oh and then take the ciggy back, of course...

    I'd like to see a video compilation of slaps on this project. It could be fun

    Sounds good Renee,

    And in fact, even if he changes his mind and decides not to quit, they could still do the slapping video.....

    I totally agree with you, but smoking is a very selfish habit and the smoker has to really really want to stop in order to quit.
    I have tried everything in order to help my husband to stop, but finally I realized that there is nothing I can do to make him stop.

    Did you know that dying is not the worst thing that smoking can cause? Take a look at this link http://www.amputee-coalition.org/abs...wer.asp?a=1261

    I supposed its worst for a person that stopped smoking to have to cope with a smoker, coz youíll always have the craving for a cigarette.
    I think I may have smoked around 3 times in my life, so itís very difficult for me to put myself in a smokerís shoes. It must be hard to quick, but not impossible.

    to me now it stinks like ****, the smell doesn't make me crave at all, especially when it is on the person and their clothes. but understand exactly what you mean about when trying to quit, she didn't help thats for sure haha

    I quit 2 months before I met my other half and it was torture! He still smokes a crapload, even though he is trying to quit.

    I have to agree that it is a selfish habit. It didn't bother me a lot to start with but over time I have grown to also hate the smell. I can't even stand walking behind people on the street who smoke.

    Currently at 6 days without a cig. Well, I had a moment of weakness and smoked half 2 days ago but non since.

    Im on the champix tablet and they seem to be working very well. I dont even feel the need for a cig.

    Just remember Stephen that as soon as you have even one drag, the timer starts again.

    Try and challenge yourself with it. Say you will go 3 days without. Then at 3 days say you will go the rest of the week without. Then another week and another week until one day you have gone a year without and it will not even be an issue anymore.

    I went cold turkey when I quit and that is the mindset I kept. If I had a drag of a smoke, it would mean I would have to start my timer again, and I would like to be able to say "I have not smoked for a year". By the time I got to 2 months I didn't even need to think about it anymore. The habit was gone. Although sometimes I do still crave at times that remind me of it, and I still dream about it after 5 years of no smoking, you don't really think about it on a daily basis.
