I've been smoking now for about 37 years and finally decided to quit. Does anyone know the best thing out there to help me kick this habit? I know there's gum and patches, but which one is the best? I really want to do this but need a bit of help.

  • Hi there,One of my friends also was smoking with tobacco cigarettes and he wants to quit them due to several health risks associated with them. He found unable himself in quitting them because he gets addicted of nicotine and he wants to quit them anyhow. He asked many people that which thing can be helpful for him in quitting them without getting addicted anymore and someone suggests him for electronic cigarette. He decided to try it once because he wants to quit tobacco cigarettes at any cost. He purchased an electronic cigarette and started vaping with this. He became very impressed with its taste and nicotine hit and decided to continue them. After some time, he became able to limit his nicotine habit and still smoking with electronic cigarette and very happy as now he is not addict of nicotine.Electronic cigarettes

  • New Way To Quit Smoking: -Low-level laser therapy operates on principles similar to the 5,000 year old ancient Asian healing art of Acupuncture. Acupuncture is known to reduce tension, increase circulation, and enable the body to relax more deeply.Laser Therapy treatment is a noninvasive method used to balance the energy low between meridians. Laser therapy is considered a non-medical procedure. Treatment with low-level laser helps to promote the release of endorphins in the body. Endorphins are natural chemicals in your body that signal your system to decrease stress and increase energy. Omega uses a low powered (soft) laser to treat nicotine addiction. The laser is no more powerful than a 60-watt light bulb. Energy points related to addiction are identified and treated with a combination of a helium neon laser and electrobiostimulation.The entire procedure is external, non-invasive, and non-thermal. Laser Therapy is painless. During the laser treatment energy points on your hands, face, and ears are treated. If a client feels the sensation from the low-level laser, they may feel a warm, pulsating and sometimes-tingling feeling. Some clients may only feel a calming sensation from the laser. The low-level laser acts as a tool to assist the client through the initial physical withdrawals from nicotine. The first 72 hours of quitting is considered to be the crucial detoxification period. The laser mimics a similar endorphin release for a period of 3-5 days following treatment, which aids in alleviating stress associated with giving up nicotine. The treatment has been used for over three decades in Europe and Canada.What to expect after a treatmentThe treatment is very relaxing and some people experience a degree of drowsiness.How the laser is usedThe laser is placed on various meridian and auricular points on the body around the ears, nose, hands, and wrists.Laser safetyLow power laser light is completely safe. It is a bio-stimulation laser not a surgical laser. We are using the latest technology without needles, so it is totally painless. Your procedure will be given by a certified Laser Technician, specifically trained in low power Laser Therapy.___________________________________________________________“Cigarettes and coffee: an alcoholic's best friend!”http://www.smokefreeliving.net/smoking-cessation/

  • I used Champix (Chantix in the US). I took it for longer than recommend before I quit, about 4 weeks as opposed to the one week they suggest for a quit day. I didn't notice I quit though. I was down to one a day for the last week or so, I guess I was scared to totally quit. I just decided one day I wouldn't have one and that was it. No withdrawal, cravings, weight gain, nothing. I had few side effects from the drug, just hard on my stomach. Expensive pills, well worth though. Good Luck!
