Stop Smoking, Helping Each Other to Quit

Recommended Posts

"Stop Smoking Project" - Thaivisa.com online self assist programme

JOIN UP NOW - just reply to this topic and stop smoke!

Male, age 69, smoking since age 13, approximately a pack a day, sometimes more and seldom less. Do not consume any kind of alcohol due to alcohol allergies.

Cigs in Canada now over $80.00 for a carton, in the USA around $45.00. I just asked via PM what a carton costs over there and if the stores carry the regular non filtered Lucky Strikes.

Have never seriously tried to stop before. All of my friends who did passed away years ago, they were all smokers, they quit and within 5 years, they were gone. That's not an excuse for continuing but it is a fact. Peter Jennings, ABC Network Anchor is a few years younger than me, he quit 20 years ago, now has lung cancer.

This will be a tough one.

This thread has been established to run a step by step programme over the next few weeks with the objective of trying to help as many smokers as possible become non smokers.

I am not a doctor or hypnotist and do not guarantee success, however I am a reformed smoker who hopes that his experiences will help some one else quit the smoking habit.

The first step is registration; if you would like to join this online programme please submit a post giving your age, sex and brief details of your smoking habit.

Registration will be open only for a limited time, once registration is closed, only registered members will be allowed to make posts within the thread. This is necessary to maintain the continuity of the programme which will follow a pre-determined step by step process and thread rules which the registered members will be asked to follow.

Dear Malcolm

If it is not too late, I would like to register :o

I often find that, despite trying to give up, it only happens when I want to i.e. when I have consciously and subconsciously decided and make myself aware of my actions.

I am a 34 year old female and currently smoke less than a pack of Marlboro Lights a day. I have given up on a few occassions, mostly when I am changing my daily routine; such as going on a visa run, flying to another country, or completely changing my whole timetable (including not seeing friends for social drinks - I have gone that far before!). I read The Easy Way to give up Smoking by Allan Carr and stopped for 3 months, but didn't take his advice of keeping the book with me at all times - I leant it to my sister so she could give up too!

I am hoping this thread will give me the inner power to quit these cancer sticks. Thank you for helping me with this chance as I know my willpower won't pull me through alone.

I am 60 and smoked since I was 13. Had a quad bypass at 48. Now have emphysema and smoke 30 cigarettes per day.

I have quit a few times for a few weeks or few months but find I can't stand the misery. It does not get easier for me as the time goes by, it gets more difficult, even after 9 months. I quit for 9 months after the bypass out of fear. But the misery outweighed the fear.

Tried most things, even hypnotism... It is not the quitting that is so difficult, it is living with the craving that I cannot stand.

I'm a 31 yr old female from Victoria, Australia. I smoked for 6 yrs then gave it up but started again after my marriage dissolved! Now i can't stop, i think it's lack of support or the actual motivation but i hate it!

Sign me up... with reservations - I want to know what the program is first.

I'm 35, male, and get through a pack of LM Greens a day same as Michael (h90) - and if he can do it, so will I.

I regularly stop for a few days, but it is mostly boredom that makes start again. There's just nothing to have/do without a smoke.

as a smoker for 27 years, i tried different ways to stop it. nothings worked. than i found a book about positive thinking. and i could stop the smoking within 1 minute. and never smoking now for 18 years. very easy to say : "i am a non-smoker." or: "why do i hold a cigarette? - i am a non smoker", or "i am free and there is no need for me to burn this waste."and it works.
