26 Days. Third Attempt. Quiting Smoking.

It's been 26 Days since I last had a smoke. Yay for me.

Advice for smokers trying to quit. Um. Try zyban. It's a pill u take or see your doctor and ask him to recommend a smoking pill.

This time I didn't really use zyban. One thing u should do is get rid of all your tobacco. Have none around. That includes friends with tobacco. Have no contact with tobacco at all.

I don't know how I was able to resist the temptation. It's like i had a voice or thought go off like "have a cigarette" and I was able to ignore it and it wasn't to painful and wasn't in control of me.

Having something to occupy yourself could help. I played alot of World of Warcraft. I used it as a crutch. And maybe some sort of reward system could help. Like rewarding yourself for how long a period of time you can go for without a cigarette.

I still count the days. So i'm still hanging out. Reading this won't really help you give up smoking but you should keep trying. I'll try think of some things.

I did find when i had a friend come round who smokes and my thinking was driving me crazy to have a cigarette that nicotine gum helped. It took a little while to kick in but it soon quietened everything down.

In NZ u can get nicotine gum really easy through some quitline. So i'm sure it will be easy to get in other countries hopefully. I found my first few pieces were completely digusting. It burnt. But it began tasting quite nice when i came back to it a few weeks later. It did help. But I have stopped using it as well though i might still for real tough times.

SO thats me 26 days. I'll keep writing. 23 of May I stopped. Had my last cigarette b4 I went to bed and that was me the next morning.
