Hey man. I smoked for about 2 years, 10 cigarettes a day or so. I quit, haven't smoked for about 12 years. Had a cigarette in my mouth with a girl some months ago, didn't inhale.

What was significant for me I think was a journal. I wrote the date, and then "Didn't smoke." It became a competition for me, to be able to write that line every evening before sleep. After a while it got boring, it was pointless, I got it.

I think it can be good to look at the psychology with smoking, and for oneself. For those addicted, it likely can be a defence mechanism. In your case, against what? Why did you smoke? What/when caused you to smoke? For me it was probably some kind of nervousness.

Also, feeling good because of smoking is a bit meh. It's like paying for sex or cheating on an exam or so. Not a win. Or feeling good because of being drunk. Well, I do drink (though these days I don't feel like feeling).

Regarding @Pan87's comment: A smoke once in a while is not that bad in my opinion. It's just typically darn hard to keep it at that level -- the next day you wake up with that pack of smoke in the pocket and on it goes. I just have a zero-policy because it's easy and requires the least energy -- at the cost of, indeed, looking cool with that smoke or whatever. I agree it's a bit cringe to be some conformist, health freak moma-boy, but being some worn-out "rocker" is also. I was a young lost boy at a tango place in a city once, and one of the seniors grabbed a smoke with me. He used to smoke, got anxiety from it nowadays. But did it in order to bond with this lad, I think. Now that's a good reason to grab a smoke.

Maybe his method can be discussed.

I used to run to/workout when I quit, mostly do strength these days. Guess all distractions and replacements are good in principle.

I smoked for years since 17. In 2013 I switched to vaping. I started off at 12mg, then cut it down to 9mg and eventually down to 0mg. At that point it was more of a mental habit and quit (though I was on 0mg for a year)

And if you vape, please use unflavored juice

I've smoked for 18 years, not heavy, 2-3 handmade roll-ups a day, probably equal to 1-2 cigarettes per day, I enjoy it.

My Aunt quit smoking cold turkey after her Dad died of Emphysema. It can be done, depends how motivated you are to quit and how you deal with the cravings.

I smoked a pack and a half a day at least 16 years or more. I tried all the other ways and nothing worked. So I finally tried a prescription for Chantix and it somehow worked for me. Been cigarette free for over 2 years now. Now later on down the road I heard theres been some recalls on Chantix so maybe something to think about. At first I still had the habit a reaching for one, sometimes had some urges or missed it. But Im saving money, smell better, taste better, healthier. Dont have to get up or stop in the middle of a movie to have a smoke, lots of advantages!!
