Okay, I'm looking for some ideas on how to quit smoking. A few of my friends have tried the OTC patches and such at the stores, and have not had any luck. Any advice is welcome. I also need to figure out a way to get my husband to stop. I don't think I can quit if he is smoking in the same house as I am.

First I want to wish you luck with it. If its your choice and you want to then more power to you. I know my dad and brother both just quite cold turkey. It worked for them but I do know it's not for everyone. My mother tried the patches and it didn't work at all. I would suggest for cutting down making it more inconvienent to smoke. Make smoking outside of the house, that way you have to think about it to go out and have one. Limit how many in an hour or a day you can smoke and then slowly reduce the number. Again good luck

My mother and my step-father quit smoking using the "Patch" method. It worked very well for them, and they will be 10 years smoke free in August. They stopped smoking right after my sister got married. If anyone wants to stop smoking, they reccomend the patch.
