I quit smoking cigarettes by vaping and also smoking liquid cannabis. I am much more healthy now. I don't have the cough I used to have either.

My Mom quit cold turkey in 1988 after she started getting the beginnings of Emphysema. So proud of her then!!! It can be done Ppl! :)

ANY way you quit is good, as long as you keep trying and then stay quit! Smoking like any addiction is a symptom of a greater issue... lack of self respect. Raise that and it will be easier to quit.

Quit smoking maybe a good thing. But the downside of it is, Smoking might haunt U after so many years of not smoking. Vicarious experience is the best. Some who quit smoking after 20-30yrs.

To quit smoking I can either take a pill that may make me want to kill myself, or take no pills and want to kill someone else.

These scientists are well done, because he is working on it. Useful business. Start smoking is easy, but it is a dangerous trap.

When I have quit, I always do it cold turkey. Looking forward to quitting permanently on my 50th birthday. Hint: drink a ton of cranberry juice.

Throughout the second seven year stage of my smoking life, I was a moderate smoker puffing on about one and one-half packs a day. At this stage I started to need cigarettes while I was working. During most of this time, I was living and teaching English on Taiwan. Vividly do I remember smoking and allowing my students to smoke during class

I have lost so many family and friends over the years from smoking that quitting was something I felt I must do. I do not suggest this the best technique but I shamed myself into never picking up another cigarette.

I have never smoked anything in my life. Just the pictures and the thought of not being able to breath was enough for me.

Every puff raises your risk of: • Lung cancer, which is the leading cause of cancer death for Canadian women;
• Other cancers, such as bladder, cervical, colon and rectal cancers (women who smoke are 95 percent more likely than non-smokers to develop the latter, said a recent U.S. study); and
• Heart attacks, stroke and respiratory ailments such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (female smokers are 20 percent more likely to develop COPD than male smokers, according to a recent study from Nanjing Medical University in China).

James started smoking at age 14 in an attempt to be like his father. Thirty years later he decided to quit and adopt a much healthier lifestyle. Now 48, James has been smoke-free for 2 years and has made other important changes to improve his health. He became an avid cyclist and rides up to 10 miles every day for exercise. He also enjoys swimming and does some sort of cardio exercise every morning. He says if you smoke, you should quit.

I didn't use any help from a drug or hypnotherapy. I didn't eat to fill the void I didn't get upset, or agitated. I didn't get mean or violent. I didn't obsess over smoking or take up vaping or chew or gum. I didn't replace something I didn't need with something else I didn't need. I quit and felt amazing doing it.

It has never been a more unpopular time to be a smoker than today. Gone are the blanket endorsements by doctors (!) and — deceitful — advertising campaigns about the vibrant benefits of tobacco products.
