I smoke and in the process of stopping smoking. May go to a hypnosis. Haven't tried to actually "stop" i have this "love/hate" relationship....smoking is my crutch and helps me deal with feelings like anger, anxiety, sadness, whatever pops up. I need to stop for health purposes.

I did smoke, And have sucessfully quit. It's the truth when they say to just take it a day at a time. I just have never given into stopping to buy another pack. I get in the car sometimes, and almost to the gas station, then I feel like, "NO" and I get a tramendous rush when I pass the place and keep going. One more temtation conquered. I have not heard much about hypnosis, but...maybe that will work. I wish you all the best, it's not easy, but you can do it. We can do anything! ~Jenn

I smoke but am trying to quit. I have gotten down to 1/2 a pack at most per day. I smoke about 1/2 a cigarette at a time then wait an hour or two to smoke the other 1/2. It seems to be working except when I am at home when everyone around me is smoking. I just dont want it anymore and it is so hard. I wish you luck. Maybe we can quit together!

Another mind trick I play with myself is "what else could I spend this money on"..I'm usually pretty broke, so it works. Just a little thought.
