Hey smaller dosage is better than nothing, right?

Like it's been said here: you need to really want it and be willing to stop seeing yourself as a 'smoker'. It's hard after all these years (15 for me - more than half my life!) to suddenly say - no more cigarette breaks, but whenever you do decide to do it know that it's not as hard as you might think.

RE: how i quit smoking (in reply to xirdneH_imiJ

My solution is simple.

I smoked for years and gave up every birthday, every Christmas, every national no smoking day, every anniversary of when I last gave up etc etc... all to no avail.

I was the same person. So I decided to change that person.

I bought a pair of running shoes and swore I would not buy any more cigarettes until I had 'paid for' the shoes. That took three weeks. By then I was thinking of myself as a runner, not a smoker. My change of head enable me to re-position my attitude to smoking. The more I got fitter the better I felt and the less I needed to smoke.
A creep 'friend' tried to get me back again (he was basically resentful!) but other nicer friends in the room persuaded me to resist. That was close - there'll still be times. But here I am 25 years later and I haven't smoked since. I occasionally dream of smoking but it feels great when I wake up with a shock only to realise that it was a dream. (There's always the beer mat, pin and upturned glass for the other type pf smoking!)

Good luck.
