    Quitting

    Alright everyone I really need some help/ideas/motivation I want to quit smoking..Ive really cranked up my training and as I've posted recently im on cycle now and doing great in all aspects except that one. I know if I can kick the cigs my endurance will get that much better and in turn my lifts will also increase as well. So I have smoked on and off for years usually have no issues stopping but the whole pandemic really up'd me cigarettes intake and quitting isnt as simple as it usually is. So just curious what can you guys offer up? I dont want to continue this nasty habit, when I dont smoke i feel better, save money, smell nicer, theres just so many positives i just need to get over that first damn hump of giving it up. (I cannot stand the smell on my clothes either.)

    There is a product (supplement) that is a liquid and works for things like Cigs, Alcohol, etc.

    It's highly reviewed. I forget the name off hand but let me see if I can find it again this week.

    Or you can search for it on ur own. It does exist.

    And it's not a nicotine replacement or anything like that. Totally different, its an herbal concoction. Damn I'm drawing a blank atm.

    I smoked for 18yrs and quit about 15yrs ago. When I quit, I got rx that was popular at the time and one of those lame puffers. I then switched to the gum and have been using that crutch ever since. So take my advice with a grain of salt.

    Nowadays you have a few more options. Vapes seem to be pretty popular replacement and those who use them say they are much better for breathing. You could also use kratom to help take the edge off the nic withdrawal and the anxiety. I'd highly recommend that. Having said all that...with covid and the rest of the stress of this year...even after 15yrs quit, I've been craving me some smokes this year. But I haven't give in.

    Multislacking congrats man, keep going strong, it was this damn covid thing that got me as bad as I am. I have switched from marbolo to american spirits and as a result of them burning much slower ive acutally got myslef down to only two cigs a day, I do a half of a cig 4 times a day so its only 2 but still I'd really like it to get down to zero. Wes if that herbal concoction comes to you let me know, and I've really been leaning towards trying some Kratom to kick what i have remaining. I know i can do it, Ive been getting one or two days myself then i say f it get a pack it'll be the last one..right.

    NAC!!! I was hesitant as a smoker of 12+ years but this helped me out sooo tremendously. I read that it could help with alcohol and opioid addictions so I gave it a try. I'm now 6 months without a cancer stick.

    It does something with reducing the cravings and helping addictive behaviors. I'd recommend taking around 2400mg first few weeks OP and look at getting a vape for the times when you're really stressed. Good luck OP you can do this.

    im a smoker too. I smoke natural American spirit. It wasnt until this current tren cycle that I realized just how hard itís effecting me. I thought I was gonna die the other weekend jumping with my kids on a trampoline. Kinda embarrassing really. Keep us up on the progress please.

    I hate saying tonreade one vice for another, but switching to vaping is a good first step if you can't just drop nicotine outright. You get the same motions and everything that you've grown accustomed to. Then every couple weeks drop the nicotine dose or volume of vaping down incrementally. Start with a 50mg nic salt, drop some vaping volume off, then drop to a 35mg, then 25, etc until you taper down to nothing and then you can cut it completely. As long as you have the willpower to actually follow through with it, I think it's one of the best ways. I've helped several people quit smoking with that method.

    Yes once I switched to vaping I could actually breath again and do cardio its definitely a better choice than cigs

    EXACTLY what I was gonna say. It helped me stop cig in 2 weeks, Cus the first week you can still smoke away, but by the second week, you wont even wanna cig... you just wont! Its crazy, I got some crazy ass dreams where I would like scream in my sleep in shit cus the dreams were SO real.. wasnt bad tho, kinnda fun to have dreams like that really.. I eventually started vaping cus all my friends were.. I only do like 3-6 nic cus the flavors taste so dam good.. but imma kick it too. At 3 now and next lowest is 0 so yea.. maybe ill take the chantix I still got and just be done with it, but vaping is WAY better on your lungs than cigs for sure, I can do cardio with no issues really, not like cigs.. Still rather not even vape and see if I can push harder. Good luck bro!!
    Lets GOOOOOOO!!!!!

    I would agree. Chantix is the way to go especially if your insurance covers it. If it doesnít then your looking at $3-400 a month for 3 months. Another route to try is Wellbutrin. Itís an antidepressant and helps with anxiety and the like but one of its side effects is smoking cessation.

    I had someone years ago who was a smoker 20 years.

    She went to a chiropractor who did some kind of acupressure thing to her ear.

    She immediately was "unhooked" and hated the smell of it.

    Worked for her and I never forgot it. At least this was her account of it.
