Hey detox. I was wondering, what are some ways I can either reduce or completely eliminate my cigarette smoking? Should I buy a vape? Should I try to wear a nicotine patch for a while? I've been trying to quit for a month now and can't seem to pull it off. I'm only able to go for at most 2 hours without lighting up another one. I'm not planning on going cold turkey like that other thread's OP, and just so you know I'm smoking American Spirits and have been able to get myself off of the heavy black packs before, it's just hard to fully quit. I know saying they're American Spirits is just an excuse when I'm smoking every hour to hour and a half so it could still cause some damage. I really need some tips.

Patch worked for me
The key is quit smoking and go as long as possible before the patch like two days maybe. Than it will feel great and you will transition to it. Keep smoking weed if you miss actual smoke.
Don't go from a smoke to the patch directly or you won't notice it much and it won't work.
Fuck vaping it's another hobby that's half-75 percent as pricey, it has no end either (the patch is a taper down program). Also look up popcorn lung, vaping is not regulated and health effects are unknown.
Patch is like 25-30 bucks a week in Toronto here. A pack of smokes is at least 12 bucks. Just on math you should quit.
I'm rooting for ya dog.

Winstons I believe are lass hazardous than yes, even American spirits. ASirit was taken our by one of the BIG tobacco industries. If you want to quit, start by not just lighting up. Do something like wait a while, do a project instead. The longer you wait to light up, the easier it is to not light up by default.

Have dinner, no need to immediately light up, etc.

Quit fucking smoking. I work with equipment, if it smells like smoke, it is more likely to fail. Every (nice) doctor would say, the best thing you can do for your heath is stop smoking.

I quitted by using self-hypnosis and cold turkey after it. It will take some time, maybe month, maybe two. Just tell yourself how bad smoking are. You can get cancer, you waste money for it, it's an addiction etc etc. In the same time tell yourself how good would be to quit. I'm not smoking for like a year now. Good luck.

Peep into the RC with nACh inhibiting properties. If you asked me I would give its ability to remove cravings for tobacco a 3 out of 3. I can't give you its name plain and simply because it would be one more reason to make it illegal and it's the most important drug ever created. Just don't go Lurch on the internetz for giving you this information.

I read the book, Easy Way to Stop Smoking by Allen Carr. If you really want to stop smoking, it actually is easy to stop immediately without using patches, gum, or vape. Here is a link to a pdf of the book: http://prdupl02.ynet.co.il/ForumFiles_2/15119301.pdf

No it's not bupropion or anything related to the NRT pharms, the government gets plenty of money with NRT to replace the money they lose with the waning tobacco tax. It's a piperidine with a cyclohexyl ring incorporated into it. The government will absolutely ban something that cuts through the profits obtained through pharma but will come up with a bullshit excuse to ban said substances under the guise of protecting its countries citizens...I know, this isn't /tinfoil/ and it's all conspiracy and the government is completely honest and transparent ;)

Do you work for the resistance? I can see why you wouldn't want me to share this information because of blowback from the men in black.

Do you drink a lot of caffeine as well? Quitting caffeine won't eliminate the cravings completely, but it can help. Also, the obvious, stay away from alcohol for a while.

I read this book 10 days ago, actually I read it twice.... This book is absolutely amazing.

OP dont go fooling yourself that you need to cut down, start vaping or using patches. What you need is to unbrainwash yourself and realize nicotine for what it really is, a prison

Cutting down on nicotine only makes it worse, unless your willpower is almost superhuman. So read the book and just stop. You're not sacrificing anything by stopping, you only gain good things (with the right attitude, and this book helps you)

I've also been smoking for ten years, have subjected my lungs to all other kinds of smoke/vapor but as i get older i notice the weed + cig combo is killing my lungs, and i need to quit at least the more harmful one or else im gonna do even more irreversible damage to my health. I am going to be using patches cause im currently too emotionally frail to risk a nicotine-withdrawal influenced panic attack. I think i will check out that book eventually because i hear about it everywhere. Day one here we go

Ok, instead if 2 hours, make it 3. Go for a walk exercise. be active for 2 3 hours.
Without cigs nearby. Just deal with it. Pretend instaaead of cravings withdrawawls, that you are feeling kind of ill and trying to get back to a healthy state again.

I have lost family members to lung and other cancers. Avoid cigarettes. Feel craving, feel somewhat abnormal anxious without smoking them. Feel anxious smoke a cig, until the next wave of feeling anxious appears, then smoke another. Just go though a week two of feeling anxious off and on. I ca assure you the anxiousness would be about the same.
Will come and go while not smoking.

You can really quit in a week. I had smoked, not some year long term phase, but always had money o always had cigs. Years passe by and I said, this is enough for me.

Reality it is easier to quit than it is to smoke. Smoking, people smell like piss and shit, it is a simple fact. Their clothes, hair breath, houses apartments furniture all smell repulsive. Smoking takes some effort., take more than that effort to quit.

By the way, American spirit is not exactly healthier. It was bought out by rj Reynolds?
Some big tobacco corp. There is no real oversight on tobacco. Unless you think off lobbyists and politicians of over-sighting how to maximize profits from a less productive
smoking society and the ultimate usually death from smoking.

Just quit, it basically does nothing whatsoever except keeping people anxious for a smoke.
every half hour or so.

i really enjoy the act of smoking so i feel you, ive been on the patches which is an expensive way to quit but once i completely ween down from the 7mg ones im gonna try everything i can think of not to pick up smoking again, its been nice just to weeks without smoking a cigarette though, getting my sense of smell back has been a trip. Also another bonus is (pause) my dick has seemed to actually gotten slightly bigger and my erections are getting back to normal. chain smoking caused serious ed for me at times which was one of the main motivations for me to quit, might be different for you but it definitely makes the necessity of quitting more urgent.

If you wanna ditch nicotine, avoid a vape.
Don't be the "Oh Ill taper down my nicotine use".
You wont.

The ONLY thing that has ever worker for me to quit was 100% Cranberry Juice, "Lung Tonic" by Herbs ETC, Alkaline Water and sheer willpower.

The cranberry gets rid of headaches and jump starts detox.
The tonic helps clear your lungs out of nasty shit.
Alkaline water helps negate carcinogens within the body.

goodluck

>and sheer willpower.
I quit with Allen Carr's book a little over a month ago, and while I don't miss the cigarettes at all at this point, I still get cravings, so my brain clearly does. Some will claim that, with the right mindset, willpower isn't even needed. But even as someone that's quit, has made a serious commitment to quit, and knows for 100% certainty that I'll never go back to smoking, willpower is absolutely a huge part of it.

At the same time though I think that people make it out to be harder than it is. I was a pack a day + smoker for 10 years, and if I can fucking do it anyone can. It's just a matter of doing it. Unsurprisingly, if you want to quit smoking, you have to put down the cigarettes. And it really is that simple. Of course, you deal with breaking the routine of it, dealing with the slight withdrawal for about a week or two (honestly this is the easiest part of it, it's barely noticeable), and of course dealing with the cravings (the hardest part, these are noticeable), but as long as you know that that's what's in store, and as long as you know that you can deal with that without breaking down (I promise you, you can deal with it without breaking down or caving in), and that it doesn't get worse as time goes on, it only gets easier, then quitting isn't a huge deal.

I'm not trying to trivialize anyone's experience with quitting here either. I'm just saying, it's honestly only as hard as you make it on yourself. Quitting is objectively easier when you, guess what, actually quit and don't pick up that one more cigarette.

Don't replace your cravings with anything. Just let them play out. They don't last very long. Like, just give yourself 5 minutes, do whatever it is you were doing, then see how you feel.

If you do find it just too difficult to let them play out, and you are going to replace them with something (again you really shouldn't) then at least make it something healthy, like drinking water. Doing that really helped me with my cravings in that first week.

Ive discovered recently from smoking cigars that nicotine rly chills me the fuck out. I might get more into vaping cause my e cig is cheap. I had a few cigars yesterday and now feel hungover but that could just be from the weekend. Either way Im gonna try not to develop a bad habit and if I need, like really need the nicotine in my life Im might get a better vape.

Quit now. Nicotine is nothing more than a trap that literally doesn't do anything for you as the addiction to it will only manage to stress you out further. Whatever calming effects you're getting from it now will soon be completely meaningless and replaced by feelings of anxiety between every single nicotine fix you get if you continue, you're gonna fall into a huge money trap, you and all of your clothing will smell terrible, and on top of that you'll be risking your health.

I know I shouldn't preach about it, do what you want. I'm not your mom. But as someone that recently managed to quit, I'm telling you the truth.

How I quit cigarettes, SUPER SECRET METHOD, I INVENTED IT!!!!:

>Start to be unable to breath when going to sleep
>Absolute hell
>Hide my tobacco in basement
>Run several times, even in middle of night to grab tobacco
Later
>Hide tobacco at park, 500 meter away from home
>Have to go in middle of night and smoke
>In 1 week, go from chainsmoking 24/7 to smoking 4-6 times
Later
>At apertment
>Craving come
>Suddenly Im in the park WTF? I JUST TELEPORTED?!
>Start to understand my addiction, A: Cravings comes in wave and last 5-7 minutes before it fucks off B: Nicotine addiction hijacks your brain/reasoning center, you are not a super ninja with iron will, it litterly hijacks ur brain and put you in autopilot, thats why I "only came to" when i was about to enter the park Walking removes cigarette cravings pretty well

Later
>Decide to bury my tobacco under rock in forest, 800meters away from park
>Goes from smoking 3 times every 24 hours, very cold, raining, middle of night, pitch darkness, spooky
Later
>Oh man, continue sleeping or go to cold rainy fucking forest? Maybe sleep
Later
>Smoke once every 3 days
later
>Smoke once every 5 days
later
>smoke once every 11 days
later
>Smoke at end of month
later
>Stop smoking, but promise myself to buy a few tiny airplane bottles of whiskey, and smoke in two months

I am on month 4 now, I can get an occasional dream where this guy gives me cigarette, but they always get wet at tip, or i accidently break the cigarrettes bottom so i never get to smoke them, really strange. Sometimes my head feels kinda toasty in a way, going for a jog or a walk and it disappears.

The 3 first days are the hardest.

TLR: Secret to quit smoking is hiding tobacco far up in forest, cravings disappear before you even walk halfway, and you get your reasoning back. HIDE YOUR TOBACCO AT FAR DISTANCE; BUT NOT TOO FAR SINCE YOU'LL JUST GO BUY A NEW PACK. MY METHOD IS BEST!

I would like to quit smoking in the future, a few months from now after I'm done my suboxone taper. Cigs have affected my breathing, cardiovascular system and the ability that I'd use to have before I started smoking which was me being able to jog/run without feeling so winded so quickly. But, now I have that problem unfortunately. Really sucks. But, when I quit I know my lungs will heal themselves back to normal. I've been smoking for 7 years, less than a decade. But, still a long time regardless.
