Has anyone on here quit smoking??? If so what method did you use? 

AnonymousWife --- 10 years ago -

I went to smoking cessation classes offered through the naval hospital and used the patch. It was hard but I did it and Im glad I did.

Good for you!!! I hope you are successful. No advice though, sorry.

Same here, but I got Chantix, still working on quitting.

Chantix works, everyone i know who has quit has by using it. And the VIVID dreams you get as a side effect is an added BONUS. hehe

My hubbys "vivid" dreams were not a "bonus". He would get crazy and start attacking in his sleep. Funny now, but then it was scary as heck... And he still smokes... :(

that sucks, mine were nothing short of good, everyone has different side effects.

Chantix. The vivid dreams are weird. I woke up crying bc my dad died in a car accident. Weird shit. I had about a week of insomnia which sucked. Other than that im smoke free for two weeks now. 

Allison --- 10 years ago -

I just quit cold turkey. Had my last smoke October 1st and haven't had one since. 

Alanna --- 10 years ago -

I went to the smoking cessation class at the Naval Hospital and took Chantix to quit. I would take the pills a few days and then miss some pills. Then stop trying to quit for months. Eventually I decided to try it again paying particular attention to not missing pills. I was a two pack a day smoker and everyone in our social group smoked including my sister who lived with me and our roommate. My husband was deployed at the time. I asked myself when I least liked to smoke. I found that just after brushing my teeth. I didn't like the mix of mint and tobacco so I kept white tic tacs on hand. I also liked to smoke the most when driving so I would bite the ends off a twizzler and "smoke" it while driving. At work if I got stressed I would go outside and breath like I was smoking. I also changed my daily routine. For me there were so many factors that helped me quit other than a class and a pill. My husband came back from deployment still smoking. I quit March 6th, 2010 and haven't had a single drag since. And I didn't have any weird dreams either.

I would love my hubby to quit chew. He does not seem motivated at all. I have been trying to get him to quit for 8 years. Yesterday I offered to buy him a Harley! 

Charlies mama --- 10 years ago -

Nicorette. And having hubby for support. We were ttc at the time too so that was a huge motivation! Haven't smoked in over two years now. And I was a two pack a day smoker. Would go through cartons in a week or so. It was awful.

My uncle did that because he hate menthol cigarets and he figured it would taste the same lol Must of worked because he quit in less than 3 months :)

When I stopped chewing it took me a few weeks, I had to put everything in fast gear because I found out I was pregnant. I went to the classes at the hospital and put hot Jolly ranchers under my tongue (I used to spit pouches under my tongue) and it really helped. I also drank a lot of fluids for some reason, felt like my mouth was always "dry" and need something lol? Good luck!!!

I just started refusing to kiss Dh at all, even after he brushed and rinsed. He quit chewing that week!!

It took longer to get him off the cigarettes. He started by not smoking when he was driving his new car. Then not smoking at home on the patio, then not being allowed to smoke in MY new truck.

The hardest thing for him is field ops, so we load him up with a big bag of shelled peanuts for those. It gives his hands something to do.

This last field op, not one cigarette or dip, WooHOO!

I quit cold turkey 6 years ago. 

Poe --- 10 years ago -

I used suckers, it wasn't really hard for me to quit for some reason. 

Alisa --- 10 years ago -

I have tried chantix, the patch, cold turkey, and the most recent is the e cig. With the chantix I did ok until I had to bump up the dose and then I had a.really bad reaction. With the patch it took care of the withdrawals but the oral stimulation is what I had a hard time with. The e cig was a flop because I didn't get the feeling.from the nicotine. With cold turkey the withdrawals were insane (throwing up, cold sweats, shakes) I hate smoking but haven't found a way to kick the habit. Hence why I was asking for suggestions. 

Thread Killer --- 10 years ago -

I have been smoking an electronic cigarette since November. So far, I haven't "needed" a real cigarette and I can select the dosage of nicotine that I intake. Once I run out of my current e-liquids, I am going to buy nicotine free liquid.

My husband also switched to the electronic cigarette and has recently quite cold turkey.

For the price, the electronic cigarette has been a huge savings on my pocket and my health. I plan on quitting all together by summer.
