Get a hold of your self.
Your are only 22 and have a hard to quit.
I has 30 when the wife and I went cold turkey!
That was 16 years ago went it was $1 a pack.
If you can do quit it will be the second best thing you can do for your body.
The first thing is SEX!

Hang on, I can talk you through this.

I quit cigarettes on 1/1/97. I went on the patch, 21mg, slept in it, had crazy dreams, etc., etc., etc. It took three months to work my way down, but I did it. You can too. I was smoking about 30 cigs a day from 1983-1997. I was young, too. I hate to think of what I could have done physically during that time had I not been handicapping my heart and lungs.

Depending on how much you smoked before, you may not need a 21mg patch. Maybe 14mg or 7mg will work for you. Regardless, what you're probably dealing with is the habit of breathing, having something in your hand, and putting something in your mouth.

Yes, the patch itches and burns for the first 10-15 minutes it's on. You can't scratch it, either. The only way to temporarily stop the itching is to slap yourself where the patch is. I know, it's crazy but it works. It's also good to remember that if you're having a nicotine fit during the day, SLAP THE PATCH--it will stimulate circulation around that area and give you an extra little dose of nicotine. No kidding.

The patch is the best way to quit if you smoke more than a pack a day. If you smoke less, go get some nicorette gum, 4mg. You don't chew it all the time, just chew a few times, then put it between your cheek and gum like snuff. When you start to get that little buzz, take it out. I still buy the stuff and keep it in my desk at work. Some days I still need it.

Try drinking a LOT of water. The swallow reflex is similar to the act of inhaling a cigarette. Play with a pen or a pencil. Make yourself a FAKE cigarette by rolling up some paper and drawing on it like you're smoking a lit cigarette. Take DEEP breaths and hold them as long as you can. Time yourself. Every day that goes by you'll be able to increase the amount of time you can hold your breath. This all sounds crazy, but it worked to get me through those "mini-crises."

If you can go THREE DAYS without a patch or gum or any nicotine at all, you have whipped the physical addiction. Nicotine is as mentally addictive as heroin, but it's physically not as bad to kick. You'll just be constipated for a few days. Mentally, smoking has to be the toughest habit to kick.

Don't give up if you've already failed by the time you read this! Just start over, and keep trying. It's worth it, your HEART, LUNGS, and WALLET will ALL thank you.

Have you ever thought of smoking weed. Gives you smoking pleasure plus a buzz. Also i think if everyone keeps smoking then we are gonna have to find a cure for cancer. there will be no other choice cuz everyone is gonna have some form of it.

If that's all you smoke, you don't need a patch. You need gum and lots of exercise. Your problem is mostly mental, not physical.

YOU CAN BEAT THIS!!! :2thumbs:

You bunch of freak'n QUITERS! Am I the only one that has any ambition left. Look, you're gona die of something, so enjoy your life while you can. Besides, do you really want to be some geriatric fool scream'n for your pills and complaining about not being reagular? I tried quiting once, and I ended up smoking more. That's when I was 17 and only smoking 1/2 a pack of reds. Now I smoke 2 packs of Camel non- filters. You know what, liquify it and hook up to an IV, Maybe that'll work. Here, this looks like a good vaine. Am I a bit excentric, maybe. But at least I have a good time, lol.

Good luck Stoney. You're a better man then I.

You GOTTA exercise and drink a LOT of water to get through this. The rest of the time, try sleeping.

Part of the problem is you're getting more oxygen to your brain now because your lungs are clearing out. This gives you more energy, and even though nicotine is a stimulant, it relaxes you. Part of you craves that relaxation. That's why taking the deep breaths works so well, it slows down your heart rate.


(did I mention that I still enjoy a cigar every now and then? :lildevil: That's what I've gotta quit next.)

Ok first, dont turn this thread into an Advertising string for ciggi'es... lmao, we dont want to get sued. Secondly, just for a cool fact... in the first 6 months of not smoking you regain almost all of your lung capacity back! Your skin looks healthier, and you dont smell. For people who think it doesnt really matter anymore if you smoke or not... i feel sorrow for. Go ahead and live a short life, no worries about wasting this one :rolleyes:. Stoneage, you baby... lol. Tough it up man! Once you get through this ... you'll be able to BREATHE. Breathing, sounds familliar?
