    I lasted two days and eight hours without a cigarette. I keep failing at quitting. This is like the sixth time since January that I've failed. If you have quit, what is your best advice for me? I plan to try again on wednesday.

    Also, I am somewhat manic, which doesn't help(but is no excuse) so for those who've quit and are either bipolar/schizophrenic/or schizoffactive, your advice would especially be appreciated.

    Look up some article that has the damage cigarettes do and the benefits that quitting smoking has and print those out. Look at that list every time you want a cigarette. Something else that can help to stay motivated to quit is to do the math. Add up exactly how much money you spend on cigarettes each week, month and year, and that can help.

    If health is more important than saving money, many people have successfully quit smoking by using electronic cigarettes. Numerous studies now show that electronic cigarettes help people to quit smoking far more than any other method including medication, the patch and nicotine gum.

    One company, Halo Ecigs has numerous styles of ecigs. The best one for a first time quitter is their G6 model. It is simple and is what they call a cigarette look-a-like. One of the hardest parts of quitting smoking is the hand action. The reaching for a cigarette, the holding it and the inhaling. This mimics that action perfectly.

    In just 10 days of using an ecig, and not smoking real cigarettes at all, you will being to feel your lungs clear, no more wheezing, no more sinus problems, and your sense of smell and taste will also become much better. Electronic cigarettes do not have smoke, and they do not have the 4,000 or so chemicals that a burning cigarette does. Your lungs will clear and heal using electronic cigarettes and you will get to the point you do not want a real cigarette and in fact they will stink to you.
