Just think about how gross it really is. That's how I've been able to kick it. The longer you go without it, the more disgusting it becomes and hence easier to keep avoiding. It's worked for me so far.

Best way to quit is cold turkey and without aids. You can do only do it when you're ready.

I have the book in pdf if you want it but you need to read it at one go and its best to attend the meeting. Takes up to 6 hours to read it. You can smoke while reading and i am 99% sure you will quit if you read it.
Just send me a message with an email you want me to send it to and i will.
Just make sure you read the whole thing at one go and not part of it per day.
9 out of ten that i know who tried it swear by it and quit smoking instantly!
If you are still trying to quit just send me a mail i can send you the pdf on this. trust me it will help allot!!!!!!!!!

I quit cold turkey again 8 days ago. Everyone has their methods, i dont need anything but willpower. I've used the gum and patches before, but if you're motivated you dont need any of that.

As some of you know i hate canadian cigarettes, so i used to keep at least a carton of marlies in the freezer. Gave those to the neighbor yesterday. I've failed in the past, but i'm sticking with it. (and smoking ****ing shitloads more weed)

edit: I've read some Alan carr, i'm sure that will be helpful for some people. As for a meeting, i'm 300km from civilization (edmonton? Civilization?) so i dont think that will work.

Like that is sooo much better. Now you will be brain dead with functioning lungs.

yeah weed is bad. See, if i didn't smoke pot, i'd feel that i'd have to question your sources (assumptions?) about pot, but i'm high, so i dont give a ****.

I have zero problems with my drug use. Smoking cigarettes for a decade bothers me a lot more and presents more serious health risks.

I am just saying, don't do either. Replacing one with the other is a bad way of dealing with smoking. (sounds like you want to be healthier)

No one has to justify their choices to me. I personally, drink, frequently and a lot. **** if I care about my liver atm.

I quit back in mid Jan. cold turkey after 28 years and it was one of the hardest things to do. I decided the cold turkey method was the best as to totally rid myself of nicotine as quick as possible. I hadf tried in the past but failed after a week or so. I guess it was just the right time for me. You have to finally want to quit.
I still get the craving but it only lasts for a second or two now.
I was smoking almost 2 packs a day when I quit and felt like crap. With an extra 15 pounds packed on and better breathing I haven't looked back.

Where the hell do you grab in the middle of nowhere? For the first time in my life I am living in a small town where you can't do a damn thing.
