    Congrats Paneristi, you beat the first day cravings, so the worst is over. The cravings will start to go away gradually and faster as time passes. Once you reach and keep your blood nicotine on zero (3rd or 4th day), you'll be, technically, an ex-smoker again.

    Well done. You will probably experience sporadic cravings though. If you do, keep yourself busy and try to remember the first day pain. You should be fine.

    Chantix is one of those FDA approved drugs which can be used to get over smoking habit. It works on body by giving you the same feel good effect like smoking and hence reduces the craving for nicotine. You can have all the information on chantix here http://www.chantixhome.com/ This medicine should only be used in accordance with the instructions of a physician as there are various side effects which may vary from person to person and it includes change of taste, sleeplessness and many more. I have smoked for more than 10 yrs, but now I am spending a smoke free life from last 2 months. Thanks to chantix. Along with having this medicine, you should also have will power and feeling that you want to get over this habit.

    I smoked approx 40 a day for 20odd years...tried to give up using acupuncture, patches, wheatgerm oil, zyban (which did actually work but made me feel really strange - mentally, so chucked that).


    The only thing that ever changed me towards smoking was Alan Carrs books. I know it sounds strange but my whole mentality towards smoking changed...I didn't actually want to smoke! Highly recommmended!


    Went cold turkey in Feb, gave up sugar in March and discovered paleo/crossfit in April. I dont think my body or mind has had a chance to crave cigarettes its too busy dealing with everything else I've shoved at it!


    I honestly cant recommend his books enough...I honestly haven't given smoking a second thought and have never felt better!

    I smoked casually for about four years and about two years ago became a habitual smoker, 3 packs a week or so. i quit this summer pretty much cold turkey. i have one or two occasionally with friends. i know i will always crave them and cave from time to time but my breathing is easier, no more coughing up gross stuff and i dont stink anymore. its worth it

    My grandpa, who smoked several packs a day from his youth, quit by throwing them in the trash and that was that. But he didn't mess around with much of anything.

    Holy thread revival Batman!

    Allen Carr's book did it for me too.
    After 30+ years of 20+ fags a day I quit with ease two years ago. Not fancied one since and I'm definitely a non-smoker, not just an ex-smoker.

    I used to smoke 2-1/2 packs a day. I quit by tapering off, little by little. When I got down to 5 smokes a day, I quit. I had withdrawal symptoms for 12 days. I did not use the patch or gum or anything. It's been 18 years since I smoked, now.

    I smoked a little over a pack a day for around 13 years, but I quit cold turkey 13 years ago. Yeah, it was really hard at first, but now, no cravings, ever, and I feel better for it.
