    Iv been on the forum a while now and never actually spoke about myself. Im 33 and living in Scotland. I have been a smoker for 20 years. I stopped for a year or 2 with the ecigs a few years back. I had to give them up as they started making my heart beat funny sadly. Not long after this i ended up becoming really ill with anxiety/panic attacks/social phobia and landed in hospital for a while. When this happened i lost my factory job of 13 years and having 3 kids to bring up,the stress just made me be weak and go back on the fags. I still suffer from all that stuff and thats how i found IM. For the past 2 years or so iv relied on ciggies like a new born with a nipple. I heard from a few people i know that they had tried this laser thing and they stopped smoking. I thought i would give it a try as it was only £45. Im really glad i did now. Its hard to explain. You still want a cig but your body doesnt crave it the same way. Like after a meal, your brain signals its cig time but you just say no to yourself and it goes away. I dont wanna say thats me did it incase i wake up feeling differently but if it stays like this im pretty confident il not go back on them. If anyone is thinking of stopping,honestly give it a try. Anyone else here had any experience with it?

    "Laser thing"?

    Could you please explain what you're talking about? I'm not a die hard smoker but I've been smoking 3-5 cigarettes a day for the past few years. It's not a very serious habit but I still wake up some days with a dry, sore throat.

    What are these laser things you're talking about?

    To be honest I don't see why people put themselves through the trauma of all this ecig, stopping stuff. If you like smoking, just do it, your going to die anyway, you may even die sooner if you stop smoking.
    If you have the willpower to stop through using nothing, then that's because you wanted to do it, anything else and your just bullshitting yourself. Same with people who use nicotine replacement, for example gum, the minute they run out their running to buy cigs due to still having the addiction.

    Unfortunately we were just raised in a generation where cigarette smoking had none of the warning you do now, so this will clearly be a thing of the past, and this generation will die out soon enough.

    Its a thing they put in your ear for around 20 mins. Would never expect it to work but it really does

    As a former smoker, the only working advice that I can give you to stop smoking is: stop smoking. That's it. First two weeks are the worst, but afterwards you just cruise through the whole thing.

    Under any circumstances do not light another one, for any possible reason. And that's it. Worked out for me (2 packs a day, couldn't last 1 hour without one).

    you got to find a reason to quit smoking.. a real hard reason.. Quitting smoking is easy compared to other things you can become addicted to IMO, you just need a real hard reason to quit and you can do it.. otherwise it's just something that sounds like it would be nice.. Everyone's different though, so for some it's probably more addictive than others. I quit pretty much cold turkey from a pack a day due to some circumstances..
