Ok, I just smoked my first cigarette of the day. I feel like I am going to topple over. I am also having trouble typing. I must of pushed delete like 50 times already. I feel like I am high, is this a bad thing? This happens every time I smoke my first cigarette of the day. I am trying to quit, but its hard.

Your first cigarette of the day will cause that, as your body loses oxygen. It's like getting stoned. If your gonna smoke, get used to it.

bklyn started a giving up smoking thread a while back, she might be a good source of giving up tips..
i gave up.. i smoked weed daily from 1983 to 2001.. cigarettes from 1998 to 2001.. then i stopped just like that.. no weaning.. i had tried stopping before but always found an excuse or a trigger to start up again.. i stopped in 2001 because 9.11 made me sad and i was already supersad as 2000 was the hardest bag of bullshit i ever experienced.. a six day old son death.. so.. phew.. giving up just seemed to be a good move and it was.. i was trying to make everything more positive in my life and cigarettes and weed were negatives..

of course now i have weird lungs, i got a non-smoking related lung disease and i can't start again but i haven't missed it and like having tastes in my food.. and anyway, smoking cigarettes gives money to the enemy.. ;)

How to stop smoking, in ONE easy step:
1. STOP SMOKING.
I'm a loser with no life, and even I quit cigs without turning back. I quit back in july of last year and I haven't touched a cig since. Just having the right reason and an unshakable resolve to obey that reason (such as "my wife will not respect me if I can't do this one simple thing") will properl you to success.

i quit smoking for a couple years. i used the patch and some nasty ass herbal cigarettes (aversion therapy ftw!)

unfortunately my wife didn't quit with me, so when i broke my knee i started up again on her cigs.

i also quit when i was 20 or so by rolling my own. that slowed me down to about 3 a day. quit because my ex wanted me too (not my ex at the time) started up again out of spite when she left :p i'm dumb

HOw long were you a smoker and at what age did you start. It makes a difference. Not that I can't quit. I just can't right now.

I started just after I turned 16, and I smoked for four and a half years at around 1 - 1 1/2 packs a day.

Isn't that a nicotine rush ? I haven't had one of them since i started. Indeed that the first cigarette of the day is orgasmic.

did it.. takes attitude adjustment that's all.
not willpower, not tenacity, not patches, gum or hypnosis..

you just need to say 'i don't like the person smoking cigarettes/drugs that is me'.. and act upon that.
