I dont want to buy any patches or anything as well. If anyoine could give me a few tips on what to do instead of smoke, Id really appreciate it. Thanks a ton!
    Also, chew gum and deep breathing works quite well.

    It's hard to quit smoking, but it is possible if you have a will. I started when I was only 14 and quit when I was 22. Now I'm 24, and I'm still free of the addiction. I just decided firmly one day that I would give it up and did not buy cigarettes anymore, when I felt like smoking, I drank a glass of water or juice, took a lollipop or chewing gum... whatever. And I spend the money saved on small trifles to please myself and encourage myself to do without cigarettes further.

    It will take a least 3 months, it gets easier afreer that, I used to smoke heavy for 15 years, have not smoked for 17 years now, best thing you can do is stop this nasty very costly health and financial wise habbit, after a year you will ask yourself why in the hell you started smoking in the first place, will power.

    My girlfriend is 27 and has been smoking since she was 13. She use to smoke pot but quit that about a year or so ago. I'd say she probably smokes 8-10 a day, maybe more under stress, haven't really counted. I'd bought her patches a while back and they seemed to work but like a child does cold medicine, once you see it take effect, you stop using it. I recently tried again but this time she didn't stick with it at all. She lacks any motivation to really kick the habit right now but the smell and constant "smoke breaks" drive me insane sometimes. I was considering buying her the E-Cigarettes, figuring that way she could still smoke if she wanted wherever she wanted, but it wouldn't be as harmful to her or those around her, as well as alleviating me and other non-smokers from the horrible smell. Any of you have any experience with them?

    Look man, its hard. Even to this day after not having a cigarette for 6 years you still get the urge. It just lessens with time. Just look at the money you will save! You will no longer be killing your lungs and now you can justify the new Droid every year!!! Even if having to pay for it outright which would only happen every other year!

    Really though, when you get the feeling just go do something. A walk, gum, whatever.......best advice.....stay away from other smokers for a while until your body has had time to adjust to not smoking. 72 hours and the nicotine is gone from your body. After that its all mental

    If it weren't bad for you and so expensive, I'd be burning one now!!! LOL

    I don't smoke and haven't touched a cigarette in my life, but I have heard these e-cigarettes are very effective. I've read that they give almost the same "feel" of a cigarette and it's not smelly and I think can be used almost anywhere. Alot of people move to e-cigs and then try to quit cold turkey, they said it was easier for them.

    No I wasn't looking into picking up smoking, the technology behind it was just fascinating to me so I read up more on it. They used to be quite expensive, but I'm sure it's been tweaked for more cost-saving methods and parts. It's the cartridges that were expensive.

    I sincerely thank you all for your help! Since I have made this thread, I have not had 1 cigarette. Thats the truth. Im still not completely over the temptation, but every passing day it is easier to say no. =)
