There is a brand on Instagram called escothebrand and it’s a vitamin B Vape pen that has no nicotine or tobacco, it helped my brother cut down his smoking & it helps me with energy when I’m super depressed/tired. It also helps with the hand to mouth feeling (I hope that makes sense)

I cut back gradually. First I started smoking only 1/2 a cig at time for a week or so, then cut back on frequency (stretching from every 2ish hours to 3-4 hours). After a few weeks of that I switched from cigarettes to a vape with refillable liquid. I started gradually reduced the nicotine strength from 9mg to 6mg to 3mg down to zero. I did that over the course of about 8 weeks. It took me a few months but cold turkey never worked and I didn’t have any withdrawal effects.

Cold Turkey and a tootsie pop every time I would normally go outside for one at work. I went to bed REAL early too 🤪. Essential oils can be beneficial as well…..peppermint, Thieves, Black Pepper. I also recently learned that the antidepressant Wellbutrin is often used to help someone quit.

I used patches. I’ve quit so many times and this last time (2+ years ago), I knew it was time. You have to really be ready or you’ll disappoint yourself. Allen Carr’s book is a great read, too. And I chew a lot of gum, it helps.

I did it cold turkey when I got diagnosed with blood clots in my lungs. My husband used Chantix

I stopped at the same time as doing a three day fast. When I could eat again, I didn't want to smoke.

I’ve smoked since I was 13/14 now 36 and I never take my cigs out my house (unless going out drinking). I can easily pass days without smoking when travelling etc. I’m not addicted. But I do enjoy it xx

I pulled every single hair out of my head. 🤣🤣
Seriously, I smoked two packs of cigarettes one night when I was out with the girls and woke up not being able to breathe. I never touched it again. It scared me. I guess that was a blessing in disguise…
Plus, my dad, mom and grandparents all died from complications of smoking. It was a wake up call for me. They all lugged around oxygen tanks… it was awful to watch and awful I smoked through that!

Cold Turkey and increased health anxiety made me quit after 20+ years. Been smoke free 3 1/2 years and would never go back to it.

Cold turkey! I use to smoke black and mile a pack a day or close to.. A box of cigs was nothing to go through. I tried the gum the ecig the patch nothing worked.

The first 3 days are the hardest. Any time you feel like you need to smoke watch a cancer video or a video on how to back smoking for your health. I use to do that and many pushups until the smoking urge went away. After a week it got easier. I also threw away anything that reminded me of smoking ( ashtrays lighters friends my ex ) focus Ion the goal of why you want to quit everyday. And then finally you would notice your taste buds are. back, I'm now 7 years no smoking.

Cold turkey. Stood outside the pub in a storm smoking one night and just thought ‘what the hell am I doing!!’ And that as my last cigarette. It was hard but only for a couple weeks then got much easier. 10 years now. Go for it. You will be so pleased you did. Sending love

Lots of prayer and asking people to pray for me. This went on for years. I am to weak for this addiction. Heavy smoker 30 years! I prayed and fasted and after knew it was time, today is 40 days.

My husband bought me a pack of hemp cigarettes just cbd no thc. They are none addictive and are pretty harsh. I had those for the hard moments. It kept me from buying a pack.
