    You all chickens. Can't you just stop smoking with strong will power? :D

    I just did that on various stages of my life. Just plain will power. In fact, I quit smoking 4 months ago, November 2016 or so.

    Did I suffer? Yes, but I've learned to live with pain, at a least I try. Pain for a lot of things life brings on every human being.

    If you're lifestyle, called job or private life, is pretty much stressful for you to concentrate on your will power then decide: either keep smoking and lower your daily dosis and accept the fact you might die due to cigarettes OR drop your current lifestyle and go for something a lot less stressful then you can quit smoking.

    I chose the latter.

    For a long time I was into smoking. A total of 5 years. The last time I had a smoke of Marlboro Menthol was 2010. It was difficult at very I mean very....becauseI would have always the urge to light one. The office way back then also was crucial in helping me cut down. It banned smoking in the offices. And then the parking lot (from where all of the smokers were diverted-- ha ha I mean you could see the smoke from there even from a distance) and then as a last ditch effort for all's safety it banned it from the factory. From then my consumption dropped from 2 packs a day to 3 sticks and then my girlfriend convinced me to quit.

    I was successful. But now I am addicted to coffee in replacement for the cigarettes. But I can now live with that.

    Try stopping gradually, cut a stick per day until you get used to not smoking anymore. Buble gum is also a good alternative..

    hello guys. I smoked about 5 years. But randomly stopped it. Recently I had pneumonia. In my work I felt bad and lost consciousness. My friend got taxi and took me to the urgent care clinic dallas https://frontlineer.com/ where doctor advised me to stop smoking, if I want to be healthy.

    The Evidence Is Overwhelming: Cannabis Is an Exit Drug for Major Addictions, Not a Gateway to New Ones

    "Scientific data also suggests that cannabis may reduce some people’s cravings for alcohol and tobacco. For example, clinical trial data from the United Kingdom finds that subjects administered cannabidiol, an organic cannabinoid, reduces their cigarette smoking by 40 percent compared to participants provided a placebo. Data published earlier this year in the International Journal of Drug Policy reported that over ten percent of Canadian medical cannabis patients acknowledge using pot in lieu of tobacco."

    I have never smoked before but some smokers are very embarrassing by subjecting non-smokers to secondhand smoking. It is having untold effect on my health. I try as much as possible to always avoid individual smoker who doesn't understand that smoking in public places is dangerous to the health of others.

    Find Your Reason. To get motivated, you need a powerful, personal reason to quit. Consider Nicotine-Replacement Therapy.
