Update

Hey everyone,

Thought I would drop a post on this group blog, just to introduce myself and my progress in trying to quit smoking.

I made the decision to quit in early February, having been a smoker for over five years. Going from smoking one pack a day to nothing at all was a real challenge, especially as I'm in my final semester at university - probably the most stressful period in my life that I have encountered thus far. The first month was the toughest; all my friends would pop outside the pub for a cigarette and I'd be left inside on my own - those are the times when you really feel like giving in. But I persevered and kept focussed. Then came the set-back of having an influx of job rejections (I'm trying to find a graduate job at the moment). However, I stuck to it and didn't give in. Not once. No matter how much I wanted to smoke, I just took a deep breath, and said to myself 'No'.

I now haven't smoked for almost 2 months. I think I'm over the worst of it, but you never know what's round the corner. However, I'm confident of achieving success.

If anyone needs any advice on how to quit - I've come up with a few exercises that might be of help. Let me know if you're interested; I'd be happy to help.

Anyways, hope all is good.

Joey

It's great that you're trying to give up. Kicking the habit is so important, especially for women. The risks related to cancer are well publicised, but not many people know that smoking is a risk factor for developing an Ectopic Pregnancy. If an Ectopic pregnancy is allowed to progress it may rupture, putting the women’s health and future fertility at risk.What could be more important than safeguarding your health?

Asons said...

Please note though, I don’t mean that comment to make light of the link between smoking and cancer, just because they are well publicised doesn’t make them any less important. Also, there are Men who work in industry for whom smoking could excacerbate Vibration White FingerThere are so many reasons to quit smoking!

Hi Joey, thank you for the very uplifting and inspiring post. There have been people very close to me who want to quit smoking as well, but don't know where to start or find it very hard to start or continue their treatments. They key is to just keep trying and believe in yourself, dominate your addiction and do NOT let your addiction dominate you. Believe it or not, a very helpful and natural remedy is to undergo hypnosis, to bring out the part of you that WANTS to quit smoking and make it dominate the addiction to the substance. One of the sources I've seen my friend have success with is Natural Hypnosis, http://www.naturalhypnosis.com?l=447470, and I hope it may help all of you who read this as well. I also have a blog about hypnosis, if any of you are interested: http://doeshypnosis.blogspot.com

Hi Folks, I struggled quitting my smoking. I had quit couple of times only to go get into relapse within a few months. One of my friend Vipassana which I did for 10 days. It was hard, but then my inherent mental strength improved so much that I didn`t touch smoking. Its been 10 months so far.

I would ask you guys to do Vipassana (which is a form of meditation). best of luck

I know Will Power is all it takes to get over Smoking. Remember, this will power should be sustained over a period of time. There`ll be many highs/low`s in life & this is where the mind would seek solace in smoking. & the Will Power is overpowered by those "Highs/Low`s".

For me, Vipassana helped me. The 10 day meditation retreat helped me know and understand what`s going on in my own mind. The good part is its free (Boarding & Lodging). But yes, its really really tough.

Ghost said...

I agree with some of the ideas here. I myself recently stopped smoking, about 3 weeks now.

I tried a lot of stuff before like nic patches, nic gums, even professional help but to no avail all those didn't work for me.

Then my friend told me about how he quit smoking literally overnight! I didn't believe him at first but then he gave me this site: http://goo.gl/tRIXgw , everything turn around and very thankful for this because it helped me from 2 packs of marlboro reds a day to zero!

This will definitely help you stop smoking today!
