    If you are an ex-smoker, how did you quit smoking?

    Cold turkey, nicotine replacement therapy, hypnosis...etc

    Cold turkey has the highest success rating and it is a gorgeous battle that pays a huge dividend on multiple levels.

    Cold turkey was the only method that finally worked for me.  I just had to knuckle down and do it.

    Ecigs, better known as a vapermate.  Start off with good dose of nicotine and taper off.  Detoxing sucks though. 10 months smoke free, happy and loving it.

      eCigs = smoking and still addicted to nicotine. Rip the band aid off.   It does suck but get it over with and be done.

      I slowly downgraded to zero nicotine.  My band aid is gone, but thanks.  I tried cold turkey-failed.  Gum-failed.  Ecigs worked for me.

      Congrats!   The End result is the same which is smoke free.  Are you still using the eCigs?

      Thanks David! lol...yes I occasionally still use them, but I use flavors w/o nicotine now.  It's a bit silly but it's like a hobby.  I do still enjoy the "breathing aspect" which honestly may be why I ever smoked to begin with, or part of it.
