I quite New Year 2013 and have been without for one year. I did it cold turkey but I will confess I stayed away from all smokers I normally hung out with for two months. I did not want the temptation because I knew I would cave. Then after 2 months I simply limited my time so I would not be around them smoking so much. Now I can be around all of them and it not bother me. Everyonce in a while I think about it but really not that often at all. Take it one day at a time and don't put yourself in a position to fail. Good Luck!

As ridiculous as this sounds, I told myself I would stay quit until about 40 days after my quit day. In my head, it seemed reasonable that if those 40 days were horrible, I could always start smoking again. Here it is 8 months later, and still not smoking. Those first 15 days were hard-ish, but no harder than some other things in life. After 40 days, there seemed no point in starting again.

I found the e-cigs really helpful. The ones I had did not have nicotine in them, but were menthol flavoured (which is what I smoked). I also used the lung association website to help me with my quit. After several months, the amount of money staying in my account was AMAZING and I didn't want to start smoking again.

Don't beat yourself up about starting again. Pick yourself back up, dust yourself off, and come up with a solid plan that works for you! You can do this!

Take it one day at a time, sometimes I had to go 10 minutes and less at a time. Deep breaths of just plain air, can help with the cravings.

Hi my name is Denise and I've been a long time smoker I have quit in the past but find myself smoking again for what ever reason I don't know. I would like to quit for good this time but don't know really how to start or how to curve cravings. Any help would be appreciated.
