    I smoke a little over 2 packs a day@5.35ea. At my day job, I deal with addictions among other things. I mean this sux. I paid for 3months of chantix...didn't work. Saw a 'smoking councilor'..didn't work. I would truly piss on a spark plug if I thought it would help. I have tried everything short of locking myself in a room and sweating it out. Maybe that's the next step. I don't know.

    add e-cig..didn't work.

    If you continue that habit that bad you GREATLY increase your chances for cancer. You should start smoking less and less each day/week. Also start using the nicotine patches. Nicotine is what makes you addicted to cigarettes. Since you smoke so much, your body is craving more and more nicotine, ammonia (they also put that in cigarettes) and that high. If you don't begin the processes of stopping it will only get worse until you die of cancer which I doubt is the end result you want.

    That is also a big waste of money you can use for better and more important things.

    ewww. soo glad i dont smoke liek that anymore. i have the socail ciggerette every now and then because when everone around me starts smokeing the craving comes back and its always a lot better when i just puff one or a half of one then i can not think about it no more. trying smoking the ciggerettes without the filter. itll be so fucking disgusting that your brain will stop associating cigerettes with pleasure. also just stay away from the image of cigerettes. dont hang around ppl when they smoke also.

    Stinky-boy,

    I feel ya-I am in the same boat. Though not 2 packs a day. Only 1 a day.

    The only thing I haven't tried is : a padded cell and the inhaler.

    Allergic to patches, Chantix was a real trip-nice dreams:eek: and I actually smoked more.

    Tried the Wellbutrin/made me psycho and my chest tight.

    Gum tastes like crap. Tried Smoke Stopper and I won't go into gory details, but it does weird shit to your ass.

    Haven't tried Commit lozenges yet.:D

    The only way I have ever been able to quit for any length of time was just cold turkey. Exactly like you said too, I locked myself away from people for about 3 days. Sadly I have picked the habit back up, gets harder and harder to quit each time I start back up too.

    I honestly hate the things, they have just become such a part of my routine (especially when stressed of course) that I can't seem to ever truly put them down for good.

    See that little one in your Avatar?

    That right there beats any program out there, Look at him/her (cant tell cause the costume) But they will give you all the inspiration that you need. I used to smoke 2 packs a day, but when my kids came up and asked me if I was going to die soon because I smoked, that cut my habit real quick.

    My 'new' strategy' is do what a lot of addicts do and that's replace it with another addiction(one that's healthier), but my only problem is the only other real addiction I have is mr puter and when I work, I smoke like a coal processing plant.

    kayne, I smoked since 14 yrs old(with a few years exception) and I shut down when I try to quit. The only way I think it can happen is while Im on vacation because of withdrawal. Tried patches too.

    Very very true, I used to be like that also,

    heres what I did,

    When you get the urge, have some low fat snacks or fruits on your desk.(cause quitting will cause you to become big boned..lol)

    Get up and take a walk around the block, Do some push ups and sit ups, Jump up and play peek a boo with your little one. basically keep your mind going.

    If you have enough will power anything is possible.

    When I was addicted to Diablo II, I ran over the cds with my lawn mower and I deliberately got myself IP banned from d2jsp.

    Talk about balls.

    Sometimes I'd wanna go back and try to use a proxy,etc.etc. but I just say NO!

    If they go up anymore, Ill have to switch off Marlboro's and go cheap. My father quit by switching to a pipe. Maybe I'll try that. I know it sounds like just bitchin' and winnin', but that's exactly what I'm doing. Just needed to air it out and maybe it will give me some motivation.

    @gbmack..yeah, I have throw my cigs out the window and 5 min later bought a new pack..lol
