madurofan:Good info Sirius. Good old fashioned cold turkey worked for me. I tried to have a piece of cold turkey about every hour .... LOL, I'm kidding. I just decided one day I was going to quit and I did.
zeebra:I tried to quit about a year ago, it didnt work. I really want to quit smoking ciggs!! I have no will power and dont know how I want to approach quitting. I dont want the gum cause I've tired it and I was chewing all the time and still smoking ciggs. I really have to sit down and write down what I want to do to quit.
Reading some of the posts above is giving some ideas though.
JHewey:i was a pack a day smoker. i quit about 1 year 7 months ago. but surprisingly i read this book. quit when i finished book like it told me too. i made sure it was at night right before bed. and i havent touched a cig since. i had cravings for about a week, mainly in the times i always normally smoked a cig. those went away and i been good since. i just recently picked up cigars about 3 months ago. i didnt want to at first cuz i didnt want it to make me go back into cigs but it hasnt and i smoke about 2-3 cigars a week if i have the time.
but as said before u have to want to quit for u to quit. heres the book.

KingoftheCove:Many good suggestions here.
If you do enjoy alcohol, my 2 cents is to quit drinking, period, while you are trying to quit cigs.
Cut back your cigar smoking gradually as well, and maybe substitue some small cigars for cigs when you feel the need, but do not inhale.
It will be difficult, but you can do it.
