    its gonna take awhile, but dont give in, i did and im not happy about it.
  3. the intense physical craving that you are experiencing right now will DECREASE after 24 hours..... after 48 hours will be A LOT better and after that....

    well, after that you can handle it.

    just want to quit and make it two days and it's so much easier.

    the mental part will be hard but the physical will subside A LOT!!

    honestly, I just wanna like start over tomorrow so I can have one smoke tonight, but then of course I would have a whole pack to smoke, and by the time I finished the pack I probably would have forgotten whatever put me on the quit smoking kick in the first place, so here I sit.....feening
  5. kay, listen you gotta be ready..

    plan for it.

    before you quit...

    rid your house of all ashtrays, lighters, etc.

    tell yourself over and over why you hate cigs. and smoking

    always start first thing in the morning

    and reward yourself when you do it. :)

    A little pot might chill you out. I quit once for about six months and that was my savior at the time.

    The craving goes away? I was off a year and still got it
  8. No, the craving does not go away.

    according to my great grandma it never does. BUT, i quit for a yr. and it gets A LOT better. A LOT...

    its managable.

    just like anything else, at first you think about it all the time and it decreases with time until you will prolly almost never think about it.

    Pot is what started me smoking cigarettes. I retired the pot and kept the cigarettes.

    I'm caving!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  11. if you're thinking about seriousy quitting....like you REALLY want to

    do the patch then

    i quit for over a yr. on it

    (i smoke again now, but not soon)

    when i quit for over a yr., i REALLY wanted to and then i got the patch and used it as the directions said (use it for the two months, dont worry about the money cause it's the same price as buying a pack every day....... remember to follow the guide in the box too)

    you CAN do it ...........

    Good luck!! Be strong. I know a couple people who quit with the help of the patch.

    What I did was cutting down. I slowly cut down from 2 packs a day, to one, then to just a couple of ciggs, and finally to practicly none (other than smoking when i'm drinking, or having a cigg every once in a while when i feel sad.... yet, that is not an adictive issue)

    it's much easier this way, to me, it took about a month to completely stop...

    If you're a strong person, then you can do it, it all depands on you.
