  • I had two packs of cigs left when i decided that when those packs where gone i would quit cold turkey. Today im 4 months and 24 days 2h free.:) And i aint looking back! Willpower is key! Also took nicotinespray, but only 3 times, and those 3 times were the 2 first days then it was all me:D <3

  • I quit smoking because its either smoking or starve. This year in my country its going to be $40.00 dollars a pkt of 20s. If you buy these pills “Varenictine Pfizer” it works to but you still have to have will power and faith.

  • This is just superb, I been tryin to find out about “do routine blood tests check for nicotine” for a while now, and I think this has helped.

  • ripped fatty rips and milky ghost for 2 years but everything must come to a stop eventually, day 2 anxiety and cravings hitting me hard

  • Cutting down doesn’t work it makes the cigarette more precious as the time between each cigarette increases. Just stop and if you’re worried about the withdrawal period look at it this way as a smoker you are in a permanent state of withdrawal and it doesn’t get any worse after you extinguish your final cigarette. The hardest part is removing the brain washing, habits are formed patterns are established and associations are embedded in your subconscious i.e going for a drink.

  • 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 ❤️

  • i have quit drugs and alcohol with ease. but these damn cigarettes… it’s so hard and I really really need to quit smoking. i’ll quit for a couple of days then relapse. the longest was 12 days. Tried a lot of methods but to no avail. I hope this time it’s for good… 4 days strong and the mere fact that i’m still youtubing “quitting cigarettes” shows that it’s still on my mind.:(

  • I made a video on my channel about how to quit! I hope everyone here can prove to themselves that they can do whatever they put their minds to! ❤️����

  • I always end up the same way when i want to stop smoking, i burn through all my cigs and i think “okay no smoking from tommorow onwards” but then some oppurtinity arises to get some more whether from a friend or just buying some and i just can’t bring myself to say no and then the same situation repeats itself and i still end up smoking, i hope that one day i muster enough determination to actually stop but it’s bean a sisyphean task so far.

  • Quitting is hard I been trying to for a long while. If nicotine was the only reason you crave it why do things like nicotine capsules,gum and other quit smoking aids do not work even tho they deliver more than enough nicotine to satisfy the craving. I tried it all and still want to smoke even tho said nicotine cravings are met. Does anyone know why this is?

  • Day 28 after quitting smoking.
    I still workout on a daily basis.
    I did endure the smokers flu ( sore throat, sore lungs )
    I regained the ability to smell and taste by day three. I can breath much easier. My resting heart beat dropped from 87bpm to 55bpm.
    Thanks to walking five miles every day it really helped give a boost to my lungs with clearing the crap out of them.
    I highly recommend quitting.
    I haven’t felt this good is ten years.

  • I have been smoking since I was 16 turned 18 now and have to stop its killing me psychology i can’t think straight without a cigarette in my hand this video is giving me good reasons to stop thank you I hope I can do it��

  • I am now 6 months smoke free. I quit cold turkey, using NO nicotime replacement NONE. I came to comment specifically to say how hard it was up to 4 weeks and how much easier it got after that.  

    I live alone and have a high stress career. Smoking was my pacifier. I would not smoke all day at work at the hospital just to com back home and smoke 10 cigarets in the first 90minutes at home. Totaling +15 a day but to me more specific… say 4 hours. You can do the calculations… it was extremely habitual. The first 3 weeks was… not gonna lie… TOTAL SHIT. I LIVED for those after work cigarettes and coming home alone… It was like losing a companion. Got a little depressed, but got over that as well. Sometimes my co-worker would come home with to wait for her carpool and she would smoke in front of me, say 3 days a week, after work, for about half an hour. I stuck to my plan and told myself there is no bargaining… quitting is now or never and I do not want to smoke the rest of my life.  

    My reasons was 1. knowing (working in the health sector) HOW bad it is; 2. Allan Carr saying you would not cross a highway blindfolded hoping not to get hit; 3. I got into running ove a year ago and realized how bad my lung capacity was ( I would feel like puking, gasping for air while co-runners didn’t.) 4. With shitty economy… i was scared having to decide one day when I am old/not able to work… if I will be buying a bread or a pack of 20. 5. I hated the smell on my hair and hands and in my car (never smoked in my house). 6. I hated the feeling of failure… how can something with so many cons be so overpowering and stronger than me?

    ANYWAY, my takeaway is: Nowadays (at 6 months) I never crave a cigaret. Not when someone smokes in front of me, not when I drink my morning coffee, not when I take a long distance drive, not when I am in a crowded private bar where smoking is still allowed, not when I have a beer after a tough day. NEVER! HONESTLY! 

    Not gonna lie… 3 months ago the cravings were long gone, but I would still think…”A cigarette would be perfect in this situation or setting”. Now I don’t even think of it. In the beginning a cup of coffee without the cigarette was like half the pleasure was missing… now I don’t even think of missing the cigarette and can actually taste the coffee. I will also tell you that the majority of my family and friends are smokers. It didn’t keep me from stopping smoking. They didn’t try to pursuade me to have one last cigarette, and I do not ask them to not smoke in front of me… not even in ther own homes/cars. I actually encouraged them to carry on as usual.  

    I never thought I would get to this point. I honestly thought I would crave it forever in certain situations but it really went away for me. I can now run a full 5km in my mid 30’s, I could not even do that in high school. I will never look back, and I will NEVER frown upon a smoker/ talk them down etc… I have been there. I enjoyed it while I did smoke and was convinced nothing could replace it. I though so, but in the beginning it was torture, then I told myself tp not keep focussing on it, to think of something else when I crave. Eventually old habits died and new ones replaced them. You will only succeed if you want to stop for yourself, not for someone else. 

    I wrote this friggin essay to show you what a die hard habitual smoker I was. I believe I succeeded. I am very confident now that I will not budge. One drag will be your downfall because nicotine is addictive. Even though I have 0% cravings, I will never take one drag to prove I am invincible. I have heard of peeps who quit fr 3 years, got hooked after smoing 1 cigarette to prove themselves. They smoke to this day. I hope this boring essay helps at least 1 person to commit. Let me know how it goes:)

  • As someone who’s stopped smoking with nicotine replacement therapy, went back, started ‘vaping’ electronic cigarettes… and wend back to normal, I have serious doubts that it’s the nicotine responsible for the feel good effect of cigarettes alone. I believe a cigarette is like an orchestra of several chemicals that are active in the brain that enhance each other. Nicotine alone is ironically probably the least harmful chemical of those.

  • My theory is that when you cut down, the body goes into withdrawal anyhow. So the more times you cut down, the more withdrawal you endure. If you cut down 4 times, you go into withdraw 4 times. If you cut down 4 times you’d be in withdrawal for 12 days (it takes 3 days to readjust to a new lower dosage of nicotine 4×3) If you just quit you go into withdrawal once for 3 days, and it’s done, and then you have to deal with the psychological cravings, and have to wait for the body to down regulate.

  • Sarin 82
    Why not smoke herbal cigarettes then if it’s not the nicotine, don’t kid yourself, your addicted to nicotine just like millions of people are. I’m lucky and got out of the trap, by reading Allen carrs easy way to stop smoking, best thing I ever did and trust me it’s easy. Hope you quit soon mate, and remember smokers are not dumb in fact they are very smart people, to convince your self and others smoking is good is a hard thing, and to keep up the excuses is very hard, anywa

  • There are several factors in stopping smoking including eg motivation and support from friends.

  • 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.

  • It’s not the nicotine I miss… but the rituals I got used to.
    In the morning: coffee with a cigarette.. after lunchbreak: smoke a cigarette.. waiting on the bus/train: smoke a cigarette etc. etc.

    It’s not the “reward” from nicotine…. it’s the smoking itself that got into my daily routine and the first week it feels very weird if that part of the routine is suddenly left out.

  • im 18 and I wanna stop using snus, but its so hard due to the high amounts of nicotine in it… can someone give me their best tips??

  • 1week in and Its pretty hard ���� I wanted to comment so I can come back next year and either be proud of my self cause by than I would’ve hopefully quit, or laugh at myself because I gave in ����either way Fingers crossed ����currently 2:08am Tuesday 11th of August ������

  • Drinking water actually really helps I’m on my first day getting a glass of water and drinking has made me feel the cravings less and helps me to flush my body of the toxins

  • I dont know man, I can stop drinking alchol, weed, but not ciggaretes, I think is one of the hardest addictions to break free of

  • Nice video content! Sorry for chiming in, I am interested in your opinion. Have you tried Lammywalness Huge Victory Guide (google it)? It is a great one of a kind product for discovering how to quit smoking without the normal expense. Ive heard some amazing things about it and my mate finally got excellent results 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.

  • I quit cold turkey on the 13th of March when the pandemic started.
    Well at least I gained something from this nightmare of staying home.
    I still crave a smoke sometimes, I live with it, I feel like I will always feel and live 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.

  • “Think about how you’re going to fill that time with something else.” This is hard. Don’t beat around the bush and only focus on achieving that. Keep smoking but become obsessed with thinking about what you will do to remind yourself to not have the cigarette when you have the urge after quitting, until that is a habit. Then you can go for it and will probably be successful, even if that also takes a few trial runs. Just don’t give up. Tell yourself firmly that this WILL work. It IS the answer. I WILL do this and I WILL quit.

  • As a graffiti artist; your marker control is amazing. Especially with the letters if not edited. I have been nicotine free for 5 years and have started up approx. 3 months ago due to a snortin’ clean heroin addiction. Because; if I’m doing the most stigmatized drug on earth; f*ck it.
    Well about 3 months into my addiction and recovery, my quit date is March 30th. Us Canadians are exposed to the little cards and I’m planning on keeping my promise with one of them.

  • If when i wanna smoke i would call soneone then that would be even hard because i enjoy having a cig while i speak on the phone or in person��

  • On day 40.
    I just remembered today that I use to smoke �� I don’t even think about cigarettes anymore. I can’t stand the smell of them now.
    For everyone who wants to quit it is easy.
    A task is only as difficult as you make it out to be. You can either envision a mountain or a hill. You are only as strong as you allow yourself to be. I can say that to you as a former smoker and as an amputee.

  • I quit 3 months ago and it’s not easy. People around me were being diagnosed with Cancer at an alarming rate. I’d been a smoker for 30 yrs and loved every cigarette I had. Not only are the physical benefits incredible but I’m saving £60.00 per week!

    My one tip for kicking the habit is.. avoid people who smoke (they’ll understand) and places where the smoke is until you’ve cracked it. If i can do it ANYBODY can. I thank ‘Champix’ from the very bottom of my lungs for the help:)

  • Quitting is easy. Staying on that path is difficult. I’ve have successfully quit smoking before but eventually I started smoking again after a long year.
    I wish to quit again, thanks for uploading this video hope it would help me quit.
