Day five not smoking...figured out a good tool to think of

every time I want a cigarette I ask myself without speaking…“why would you want to stab yourself in the chest with a cigarette? they are going to kill you if you don’t stop.” and the craving goes away…just like that…day five ■■■■■■■…haha…

Last time I was on here like a year ago u were quitting… U must of quit again?

You’ve quit cigarettes as many times as a vegetarian farts.

Dude I am epic struggling over here. I’ve tried everything. Chantix was working until my dose doubled on week two and I started vomiting every day I took it… had to stop. Was down to half a pack a day now I’m back up to a full pack.

I want the extra 300 dollars a month that I’d get from quitting but it’s such a struggle because I like to go out for a walk every hour. I feel like I smoke just as an excuse to get outside and stretch my legs. I’ve never found it this hard to quit in my life, before SZ I was an on-again-off-again smoker but now I’m just stuck :frowning:

have you tried vaping or nicotine replacement along with replacing smoking with a hobby for distraction?

I guess I could just go outside and go for walks without smoking. I don’t really want to switch to vaping because that’s still expensive… my primary motivation to quit is financial.

Go to that link. You can get a litre of ejuice for about $15. A litre could last you 2 months.

It’s unflavoured though which is what I use.
