TIRED of the 'trying' yet?

When you have tried all the ways you can stop using any nicotine in your life anymore?

There are processes and tools and support that is ALWAYS there for you.

And it works.

If you really want to learn how to live nic free, post me and I will pass on what has worked for me. I'll hook you up to others, too, and this all is free.

Support group meetings were my salvation - I quit in 2008 and would never have made it without that face-to-face support!

Thank God in all things!

ps
a second meeting opened in Washington DC and I drove down to meet the folks who started it,
only to find TWO SMOKERS who were very committed to working this program and learn how to live nic free PLUS stay in program to continue to grow and to be of service for the next smoker who found NicA in that area.

Just two people make a meeting and those committed to serve their desire and show the example to others develop rewards they never could have anticipated. Our lives were a grand hoax.

emoticon Still here, still working my program which means I care about how I experience my world, inside and out.

I used to quit by cutting down, changing brands, making white knuckle solitude withdrawls... and I'd last for different amounts of time. Only to have something more to learn about all the triggers (happy and sad, good and bad) that were my stimulants to light up for another deep drag...

Once I realized my very breath of life was mixed up with controlling poison, I decided to join nicotine anonymous, and I've stayed in this program successfully ever since. NicA? I had no idea it existed until I was ready to do whatever it takes to break free of this powerful addiction.

I needed live folks to talk my issues out with, week after week, until I separated what the addiction was saying in my brain to the new skills and alternative beliefs I acquired.
While quit net has been a fun addition to track my stats, it is Nicotine Anonymous that keeps me honest and nic free and still attending meetings for the still suffering nic addict. This is the breath of life reward: a small committed group who support one another to grow. Never as free and happy before.

I have been reducing my cigarette consumption, too. I've gone from a mindless smoking one to two packs a day to 15 and now to 10. I know I really need to quit; but, I just can't make myself set that "quit date." I'll check out Quitnet on FB. Thanks for the post about it. Good luck, everyone.

I joined the Facebook group for Quitnet yesterday. I have a friend who has been successfully smoke-free for 6 years and Quitnet was her main source of support!

I went on Quitnet.com to help me quit. Just reading others' profiles saying they have COPD or emphysema and really have to quit was enough to get my attention! Gaining as much knowledge about this insidious habit also helped which that site provides. Good luck in your quit!

I have been working on step-down quitting, working down slowly from 1 1/2 packs a day and one less each week. Today started my 15-a-day week. Changing daily habits is hard, not so much the not smoking part. I will probably also have to quit drinking coffee!

I did find a couple of apps that are designed for this type of strategy, giving me a timer until I can have the next cigarette and tracking my progress as well as helping with motivation to wait longer & fight cravings.

Anyway, just wanted to share and any tips are appreciated!
