This is a billion dollar questions to smokers and even more to non smokers because passive smoking is as equally injurious. People find it very difficult to stop this habit once they have acquired it. So come on friends lets do a brain storming abt this topic here. What i came across recently is that there is a chewing gum introduced for smokers to stop smoking, what u have to do is to take a gum a chew when ever u r itching to have a puff. But one of my friend used it and said it is in no way going to stop making him smoke because it was not as effective as it was meant to be and more over what bothers him is it creates a burning sensation from throat to stomach wen he is chewing that gum. Friends do u have any suggestions or ideas to stop making people smoke because its not oly spoiling them but also people who are around them.

I think the best way to stop someone from smoking is to make him busy.Try to play video games with your friends or go out for a walk in the park.Introduce reading books to them.You can also watch mother together and have fun.:)Just do something fun so you can forget smoking.:)

Oh yes. I'm a smoker and this actually helps. I tend to forget smoking when I'm really busy on something I like to do. Hmm.. What I always thought, maybe kissing would really.. REALLY help. haha

Yes keeping them busy in other activities really helps, they completely forget that they have to smoke.

Ah, this is a universal question widely asked and judged by millions of people. However, everything goes smoothly about smoking. The most important thing I think in getting rid of smoking depends on one's determination. If you want to quit it and stick to it, you would make it. otherwise, no one can help you. If you are addicted to it, this is a good suggestion for you: to find as many things as you can to do. If you are busy all the time, you will forget it.

It is quite hard to let someone stop from smoking. A real motivation is needed but the eagerness of a smoker does really matter. When a non-smoker forces the smoker to stop, it is useless. The smoker itself should decide for himself/herself to stop the vice. And in there, we can help them cope up.

There was this religious organization where most of its members do smoke. One time, its head minister realized through the Bible that smoking is forbidden by God since this is a form of excessive living. When he preached to his members and pointed to them the iniquity behind smoking, the minister himself along with the God-fearing members of that organization were able to stop smoking abruptly. This anecdote suggests that smoking can be stopped effectively with the help of God as one believes and fears God. "In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness..."-- Romans 8:26
