I've been a smoker for 10 years now. It's a bad habit I can't shake off. I crave for it every time I finish a meal, upon waking up, during coffee breaks and even when I'm not doing something. I have tried to quit for 1 year now but all my effort seems to be futile. Nicotine patches doesnt even work for me. Do you have any idea on how to quit?

I quit a 30 a day habit 14 yrs ago. I think i talked myself into it, everytime i lit a smoke i kept telling myself that i didnt like it and it tasted revolting. I ended up with a realy bad cold and was realy sick and wasnt able to smoke for 2-3 days and from there i was able to quit. My friend wasnt so lucky she said the first 2-4 days are the hardest (withdrawls)but then it is all about changing your habits, after a meal instead of a smoke have a glass of water and do something. You could always see you Dr and see what new meds that they have now. Goodluck and i hope that you succeed after 3 months you will be feeling so much better and if you are a chesty flu tpye person like i was , that has all stopped and i hardly ever get chest colds anymore (from 2-3 per year to 1 every year or 3) best wishes.
