Hi Reckenzie,

From what I have observed.

The only method that works, requires A) The desire to quit, and B) The will to quit.

Once that is sorted out, just not having the next one works, a smoking diary to record any relapses (with a score so progress can be seen), a new interest (to divert attention), and supportive (preferably non-smoking) friends.

Allen Carr's Easy Way to Stop Smoking. Totally worked for me.

Hey guys,

Thank you so much for your cooperation and reply. However, can e-juice, e-cigarettes, vaping help? I think so. But does there any bad effects if I follow those one of the method?

Please let me know!

The logic does not add up.

I am addicted to nicotine, which I get from tobacco smoke.

I will get my nicotine fix from another source, this will end my addiction.

As I said, the logic just doe's not add up.

Support willpower..

You could try hypnosis, which is non invasive..

Thankfully I have never been addicted to cigarettes. However like giving up/cutting back on something you enjoy willpower is key. So distance yourself from the triggers that make you want to smoke.

The day I was diagnosed / started dialysis my younger brother stopped from 20-30 a day (in the Royal Navy) to zero so he would be fit and considered as a living donor. Sometime you just need a little motivation.

Good luck as I can't imagine how hard it could be to quit.

Or this is a long running post to get round pushing a product........
