How can I quit smoking ?

Posted by @zoey101 in Healthy Living, Oct 26, 2011

Please someone help me, I have been smoking sense I was 15, im 18 now and I get strong cravings when im stressed or someone gets on my nerves. I'm starting to get wrinkles under my eyes and that scars me. I have had shortness of breath two years ago and that's REALLY scary. I really want to quit without using them nicitene replacement things, I wanna do it cold turkey cause well I can't really afford anything im still in High School and I don't have a job. So please if you have any advice or anything just let me know. Thanks.

Shalom Love, If you realy want to quit, accept JESUS as your Lord and personal Saviour today, through the help of the Holy Spirit, He is ever redy to help you out.Just give him a trial. He wish above all things that you may prosper and be in health, even as your soul prosper. Read John 3:16 of the Holy Bible. Best ot luck.

Not one to buck the Lord, however, a more practical solution might be for you to check a few places. 1) many hospitals offer free stop smoking classes with support groups. 2) Many states also have free smoke enders meeting and support groups. 3) Stop smoking and stop hanging with anyone that smokes in your presence.
If they are truly your friends, they will honor your wish not to smoke when you are present.
I quit after 55 years of smoking 3 packs a day, 8 cigars and an occasional pipe. I always had something smoking somewhere. I just desided it was time to let go of the smokes. (Of course I am stage 3 COPD, Emphysema, and one lung, so the doctors said quit or buy a coffing so I quite...... but ot be safe I paid for my cremation just to avoid the rush when I pass.)

Zoe, so sorry to hear you find it so difficult to quit smoking. A few friends of mine did they following. One bet the other that he (the smoker) will not be able not to smoke for one month. The amount of money was quite good, so the smoker had some good motivation to quit. For some people it helps, especially for those who live on a budget, you know?! 🙂
Another friend of mine got himself an electronic cigarette kit, one of those: but I don't know which one exactly, so cannot be more specific. I think there is a liquid that he buys that does have some nicotine, but very little of it. So, he keeps lowering the nicotine dose and hopefully, with time he will be able to say "enough is enough".
Other people buy little snacks to keep their hands busy, like sun flower seeds or candies or nuts, whatever. Some people just are used to holding a cigarette. Hope it helps.

Let your friends and family in on your plan to quit smoking and tell them you need their support and encouragement to stop. Look for a quit buddy who wants to stop smoking as well. You can help each other get through the rough times. apart from this you can try these home remedies as you told that you are in hogh schools and you can't afford any expensive treatment...

- Massage Vitamin E or almond oil around the eyes without touching the eyes (massage must strictly be external). This improves blood circulation.

- Get a lot of sleep. Sleeplessness is a culprit for most health problems. Have a set routine and have regular sleep timing. Make sure you get at least 8 hours of sleep.

- Include a lot of green leafy veggies in your diet. Also include food rich in Vitamin A and E.

- Indulge in some kind of exercise like walking, jogging. Yoga, especially pranayama is known to improve skin health.

- Take two thin slices of cucumber and place them on your eyes. This removes the puffiness and cools the eyes - Dip cotton in rose water and place them on your eyes.

- Reduce salt intake in your food. Excess salt encourages fluid retention and leads to puffy eyes
