Missy, you're going to call me either insane or something else, but it is relatively simple for me to quit as long as I have gum around if Im really needing wanting a cig and don't have any. I've quit twice..but it wasnt for just a week or so and said screw it, it was months at a time and something stressed me enough to cause me to "relapse" and start again.

Also, I don't like the Blu electronic cigarettes. I've tried them and I can't even take one hit of it without coughing up a lung. I can't see any point to it. Before I came to this realization, I actually told a friend that I'd completely quit if I were forced to switch to electronics. There is absolutely no pleasure in them like I get fromba nice Marlboro.

I tried the electronic ciggeretres, and your right, they don't compare to the real thing. If you can keep yourself from buying them and use the electronic one, then they do take the edge off just enough to get by. I use mine if I'm out and I'm too lazy to go to the store lol.

First off-good on you! It is not easy. I am another vote for the electronics, and there are many brands. I would suggest that you not try and change too many things at once......ie-giving up the drinks too......just a thought. I last quite a year ago, and when I do-I just go cold turkey. I don't really say anything to anyone, just decide one day to do it and do. Everyone is different tho-hubby has been on the pills to stop smoking several times with no success, and is just so miserable, I am ready to light one up for him! I am NOT happy about the weight I have put on tho....so that is next.I did not need 15 lbs.

Good luck-make sure you put that $$ aside seperately so that you can see it grow-that will be more rewarding and a good reinforcement as opposed to just letting it get absorbed into your budget. I don't know how I used to afford it, especially when I am in NY where they are about $10/pack!

Good luck!! I am quitting as well... hardest part for me is almost everyone around me does it, my boyfriend, his friends, my friends.

I find if I am not with anyone, I won't touch one... but when I am with someone that does I do, or if I am driving I just get bored or frusterated and need it! It's a tough one to kick, but if you put your mind to it you can do it! I am 5 days no cigerette right now and feel awesome!!

They seems to be one of those "hate it or love it" things. When I quit years ago I used one, the first time I used one I loved it and never smoked another cigarette. Btw, they have improved them, I think. Anyway, proud of my discovery I bought a kit for a friend - they tried it and felt about the same as you. I was a little disappointed it didn't work for them, but different strokes....

Take lots of deep breaths and good luck. I quit cold turkey over 12 years ago. Have never had the desire to have another one and have never missed it :) I do hear I am one of the lucky ones. Wishing you all the best!

Im actually going to put that extra $50 a week towards my truck. I need a truck to haul woth and can't rely on my BO because she just had surgery and can't shift her truck..She'd let me borrow truck and trailer, but since I don't know how to drive a standard, I can't take up that offer, haha.

Frank, Im just going to give up the monsters all but once a month..lol. I use to buy 2 big ones a day when I was working at FedEx..and that was adding up too!

Fulford, its the same thing for me! Everyone I basically know smokes..family, friends, coworkers, etc. Its mostly social smoking for me aswell or when Im bored driving. Quitting smoking is going to help my gas too, because I usually go for a nighttime, backroad, smoke drive after work xD

I wish you lots of luck. It can be one of the hardest habits to kick. I am not, or ever was a smoker; however my one brother was. He smoked for many years and decided to go to his doctor and get the perscription Chantix. It did work for him. He's been smoke free for nearly 2 years now and has no desire to start again.
