    One cigarette at a time. 

    A friend of mine quit smoking recently and told me that a cell phone app helped him because it gave it something to look at to gauge his success.  I think it's pretty cool.

    I think that people who have tried on their own and end up going back to it should seek help from their doctors (meds like Chantix).  It's just like alcoholism/addiction.  If you try on your own and fail then get some help with it.  For some reason the choice to quit smoking has ended up getting "individualized" as if it's only the smoker w/a problem.  If your friends smoke then they enable you and it's likely hard to be around them once you quit.  Smoking is a community action for some.

    The app is cool.  There are a few of them but the one mentioned in that article is the one my friend used.  Smoking sucks, smokers don't.

    I have been using a tablet called champix, I smoked for 20 years and give up with in 1 week and never smoked again. It just stops your craving for nicotine works wonders.

    I don't smoke, but a friend of mine recently quit cold turkey and replaced cigarettes with sunflower seeds, spicy gum, and fingernails. Anything to stop the crave for nicotine.

    Decide to quit and stick to it, find better substitute such as exersicing. Jogg, martial arts, tennis or whatever.... I quit smoking around 4 month ago and what help me a lot was boxing and jogging, going to the gym. Something as well, goal setting, why do i want to be smoke ┬┤free? Good luck and enjoy the ride

    It's easy to say on how to stop smoking... but believe me... it's hard to do. But I've read in one article that you can stop smoking by simply buying a gadget which is similar to cigarette but there's no contain tobacco on it.

    Try a behavioural theapy (you can do this yourself) to change how you feel about cigarettes. This will, in turn, discontinue the dependant relationship you have with them. Sadly, self control isn't always enough for persons to cease a bad habit: they need constant inspiration for continued control over their urges. For this, try keeping your cigarettes in a tin, say, in a kitchen cupboard or something, and then try to find an image that you find particularly disturbing of the end result of smoking (this doesn't necessarily have to be the end result of prolonged smoking, either!). This could be anything from a grusome tumor, to somebody with gangerine or amputations through smoking, etc. Now take that image and stick it to the tin containing your cigarettes, making sure you will be able to see it every time you open your kitchen cupboard if you have a moment of weakness, or if you're just getting some food (wall cupboards, if you have them, work best for this technique as the image will be at eye level!). In the mean-time, keep yourself busy by doing anything you enjoy: take up a new hobby; do a form of enjoyable exercise! Absolutely anything that gets your adrenaline going, and keeps your mind from wandering to cigarettes. Also, positive affirmations are always good for this kind of thing: choose a statement that makes you feel good and empowered like 'I will no longer be a slave to cigarettes', 'I am now a non smoker', I'm no longer going to allow cigarettes to control my life, I am now free', or something similar (make up your own!), and say these statements to yourself dozens of times a day!! Try and read literature about the dangers of smoking on as regular a basis as you can, as well! I recommend you look at some 'coaching' sites such as http://www.paulmckenna.com, http://www.matthewhussey.com, http://www.fionaharrold.com, http://www.achievemorelessstress. You might find some more tips on sites such as these that are more suited to you. That just leaves me to wish you the very best of luck, and may you always be in good health from now on!

    Since our reasons for smoking vary with each individual the approach to quitting relies on ways to combat the triggers that make us light up. Soul searching and having a plan may help. In the meantime check out this information....
