  • Not certain about the points made but,if anyone else needs to find out about how to give up smoking try Letza Quiter Lessons(just google it )? Ive heard some decent things about it and my partner got cool results with it.

  • I was a pack a day smoker didn’t wean off just quit and one of the things thatvhelped me when I’d had hardcore cravings was doing puzzles. Everytime I got an extreme craving I did a sudoku puzzle and it took my mind off of it. I haven’t smoked in 12 years.

  • To start off this profile pic is really old I’m actually 17. But I’m on day 3 with no nicotine which is supposed to be the hardest day for cravings. I’m trying my best

  • Hi I’m Leonie. I’ve been in my first semester of nursing school in Cali and I really want to quit smoking again. I get really down on myself for picking it back up a few years ago and I remember how hard it was. I clicked on this because I liked Chris’s face and exercise helped me last time. I glad there’s more where this came from. I’ll be watching more for inspiration. It can be so overwhelming but your making it so much more approachable! I’m an all or nothing gal and finding that balance has been a struggle so cold turkey is really my best option. I’ll let you know when I get my first 24 in. I feel it coming soon

  • Im 25 now, smoke since I was 13. I officially smoked my last cigarette 3 days ago and I haven’t been able to sleep at all. I feel so damn desperate, can’t stay still and I feel like punching stuff. This morning on the bus to work I heard someone scream my name very loud like right in my ear, almost inside my head. I don’t know if it was an auditory hallucination or I briefly fell asleep with my eyes open due to restlessness. I know this will be over at some point and it’s totally worth but man it takes every fiber of my being to not go buy another pack. If you are thinking about quitting do it now, don’t make plans for it just do it. If you are thinking about smoking, do yourself a favor and don’t.

  • The only two times I quit cold turkey I lasted for three months (I had switched from smoking to vaping a couple years before that and quit vaping cold turkey). The second time qas after a bad panic attack that sent me to the hospital thinking I was having a heart attack. It was a panic attack and nicotine overdose from chain smoking (I have fallen back to smoking because I can no longer afford vaping). That lasted five days and then wham! Wife pushed my stress too far (I have severe PTSD) and I caved and bought a pack of Cheyenne Menthols. Have been smoking again ever since. I hate it as much as I hate the cravings and panic/anxiety and BP issues I have as part of the withdrawal. Especially with my stressors and triggers to want to smoke. I don’t want to smoke anymore and this video has great advice. I am taking another whack at quitting again once my pipe tobacco runs out this time. Especially with kid 3 on the way and being tired of having BP issues that have appeared in the past year. I want my lungs back. I want my singing back! I want me back and am willing to do almost anything to get there. Thanks for posting this video!

  • I bought all of this until he said it’s been 5 weeks, I hope he succeeds but I did a lot longer than that and still eventually broke. Really do hope he succeeds though ��

  • After 2012, this is my second day without passing cigarette, please give some real life motivation which will help me to get over it

  • anyone and everyone can do it. if you know it’s best for you, and you know what it will only lead to, why allow it? quitting is extremely hard and most fail. the ones who fail never stuck with the thoughts and just felt too lazy to push though the cravings and pain. i quit a month ago and came back to the video to remind you all you can do it. be strong. be brave. steer your life in the right direction. only you can change yourself. remember that ❤️

  • Quit smoking for a month. I really got no advice to give, other than telling you that you are statistically likely to fail. Just wanted to flex on some people who didnt quit yet, because im the best.

  • I was/am an athlete as well and was also telling myself that I’m too old to get back into training. This was really inspirational. Much respect.

  • Great video content! Apologies for chiming in, I would love your initial thoughts. Have you tried Senarper Wordless Supremacy (probably on Google)?

  • There are many components to quitting smoking including eg motivation and support from family.

  • Heres my route to success. Quit 4 years ago and then vaped. Quit that fortnight ago.

    1/8th teaspoon of salt. And glass of water. Every hour. Wash the crap oit of you whilst leaving a tricky taste down throat. Works. Oh and running every morning and press ups. Also and key to starting the day well is apples. Yeah wow they guarantee a good wake up. Then lastly its early nights.. allow the body to have longer than usual for sleep by about an hour. All good. Water and salt the ticket though. Every hour. ����

  • I’m not sure but,if anyone else wants to learn about tips on how to give up smoking try Letza Quiter Lessons(should be on google have a look )? Ive heard some pretty good things about it and my buddy got cool results with it.

  • We peoples have comfort zones. Consider Smoking as a comfort zone. Now think what kind of comfort you have associated with smoking and what it has to do with the smoking?
    Such as you feel independent, you feel equal in socializing with peopkes who also smoke, you feel you need a fresh air or feel good with smoking after eating these are the things you have associted with smoking and they are your comfort zones. Now rhink how can you achieve these comforts without smoking or do you need comforts through smoking everytime after you eat or socialize etc?
    It will help with cravings and will help you naturally not to thunk negative or about smoking.

Ive heard some decent things about it and my m8 got amazing success with it.

  • Day 7 no nicotine and i have given up smoking only because I want to give it up. I got champix from my doctor and it really works. I save $30 dollars a day that’s one weeks rent since the day I stopped thank god I’ve kicked the habit and it only took 7 days.

  • “This program has been a big help to me [Go Here= 7wow.cc/rpv7 ]. As a chain smoker I knew it that my life is being wasted, yet I lack the will power to do anything about it. But with this book I was able to do what I normally wouldn’t have done. I finally quit smoking.”

  • On my alcohol and nicotine free journey with my husband. Yes I’m writing this with a cigarette in my hand… but hey watching these videos are a good first step right?

  • Im watching this for my 71 years old dad who’ve been smoking for 51 years now �� my father tried to stop smoking bunch of times already but he ended up smoking again, he tends to give up bcs he got many illness as he is very old now, my dad easily gets distracted from cigarette bcs he gets stressed often times, so anyone who has the same situation, any tips for me? I really need to help my father, he’s getting weaker every day but he said that it’s very hard for him to stop ��

  • I really wanna quit smoking. I started a few months ago due to extreme school-related stress/burnout and depression/anxiety issues. I’ve probably only smoked a pack so far, but I still feel terrible about it. I don’t want lung cancer, and I hate having to hide it from my family (I’m 16). Sometimes I feel like it’s the only way I can cope with my anxiety though. My plan right now is to finish what I have left (I have 7) and then quit cold turkey. If anyone has tips on how to get through withdrawal, I’d appreciate it ��

    Edit: So I’ve just had a bit of a late night epiphany, and I’ve decided to just throw them out (I think I still have four). My stepdad is currently having health complications because of smoking, and it’s really motivated me. Plus I’m sick of being addicted to nic and having to rely on it to feel ok. I know no one is reading this but I’m gonna keep updating to keep myself in check.
