There is no magic cure to quit smoking. One must have some will power and gumption to want to give it up as it is an addiction. There is a prescription pill out now as well as several OTC items you can buy. If you have tried to quit smoking and succeeded, what have you found that worked for you?

I took commit longes now that I am finished taking them I want to chew a lot of gum but I guess it is a lot better then lighting up a ciggerate.

Yes, some people even substitute eating veggies like carrots or celery or even pretzel sticks. Congrats on being a winner!

Thank you. I am mainly worried about getting around freinds who do smoke and starting up but I think I can fight it. I have been without for 2 weeks now.

Hey that is awesome! Keep up the good work! Remember, every day that you don't smoke, is one more day of lung repair!

I tried all of the gimmicks out there at one time or another and quit for varying periods of time. I have now quit for good (years!) and this was by just making up my mind to do it and going cold turkey. Whatever works for you, do it. Just don't ever stop trying. Quitting is definitely worth it, and everyone can do it. Check out http://www.stopsmokingonline and http://www.quitsmokingonline.com

Sorry, the first link is no longer active. The second one makes up for it, though. It's a FREE online course for quitting smoking that I think is very well done.

I am a non smoker. I was asking the question on behalf of several friends and relatives who do smoke. For every day that you quit smoking, that is one more day that you are here on the earth.
