Smoking is bad for your overall health. If you decide to smoke then you must understand that it affects your entire body. I try not to judge people who choose to smoke or drink. It is a very personal decision.

Unfortunately there is no one solution to stop smoking. Everyone is different. Some people can stop smoking by "cold turkey", others can use stop smoking aids such as the nicotine patch or there are new medications out that you can take that can help with the urge to smoke. Some people go through hypnosis. Not everyone can stop smoking at their first attempt. First and most important, you must want to stop smoking for yourself first.

Quitting smoking is a very difficult thing and for someone that has never had that addiction its hard for them to understand. I quit smoking once for 2 years and then started again. I could kick myself for starting again but I was very stressed out at that time and seemed like a good idea at the time *sigh*. I still need to stop and I know I do. I will get to it eventually. For now I am finally getting my diabetes under control and losing some weight that I really needed to lose. I figure I will tackle smoking eventually. But I can only work on one demon at a time without going insane :)

The patches are supposed to be effective. I tried them but they actually burned my skin so I couldnt use them. There is a medication that is supposed to be very effective in helping you stop smoking,. When I am ready to tackle that issue I am going to ask my MD about prescribing it for me.

onaughma absolutely right, in this case we should be against the evil of ourselves, we must fight our own vices, it might be an alternative way I will try to buy a ebook about the guides to stop smoking, which has been given by my friend. he tried it and she said she managed to quit smoking,

I am one of the ones who was able to stop cold turkey. Part of that was because I couldn't afford to buy the cigarettes. At any rate, I just never lit up another one, and that was 26 years ago when I was 39 years old. But I gained weight, which is only now coming off since I started eating a low carb diet for my diabetes. Y'win some, y'lose some, right? :D

I had been a smoker for 8 years and recently tried to abandon the smoking aftern learning that i am in Prediabetic stage . I still smoke once in a while like borrowing a cig from a friend etc but have reduced my regular smoking from close to pack a day to almost none. My only motivation was to bring my sugar levels down and just stopped .i still get smoking aches but i try to overcome by simply not buying a pack . Think It is the will power that make you quit .
Hope it helps .

Even 25 years later, there are occasional rare instances when I get that hankering for a nice loooong draaaag . . .

I smoked with a neighborhood friend when I was 10. I probably smoked a couple of packs over a three week period. It made me sick and my BG was terribly high until I quit. I have never wanted to smoke since that time.

Hee hee. When I was in my early 20's I looked like I was about 15 years old. Everyone I worked was older than I, and they all smoked. I thought they looked very sophisticated with their ciggies and adult beverages when we went for cocktails after work. I developed the habit of lighting a cigarette and holding it as though I was one of the in crowd.

At some point I caught a glimpse of myself in a mirror. What a moment of clarity! I just looked like a 15 year old with an icky habit trying to look like a 21 year old:rolleyes:. I'm surprised I was never kicked out of the bar area. I stopped that silliness that night - saved a ton of money too. Those sticks were expensive!
