I smoked for over thirty years. I tried to quit numerous times using a vaiety of other smoking cessation aids and techniques including the patch, gum,hypnotism, cold turkey etc.. Over three and a half years ago, Within two months I was smoke free and have never looked back.
I’m curious as to peoples position to electronic cigarettes? I read a few posts on here that were published a few years back on this topic — just curious?
I’ve tried 2 electronic cigarettes, simplemist (www.simplemist.com) and greensmoke (www.greensmok.com) and I have to admit I was presently surprised.
Though I know the answer is quit cold turkey, but the real question is not about quitting but thoughts around the alternative?
Before the crisis in Greece, a lot of people in smoked , lung cancer was a large problem. Today is better, people don’t smoke too much,it this one good thing, what did the crisisne.
Smoking is bad habit for health.Most of youth generation have smoking habit.we get blood and lung cancer.you are already tell that U.S.A is big market of smoking.
Is it a wonder how ingrained we have become, that its so hard to break the habit? Still to this take people take “smoke breaks” that don’t smoke. I guess it takes more than 1 generation of effort to change a mindset. I laud the efforts discussed however.
I remember my first job in a warehouse, everyone smoked. It was almost expected. But in the last 20 years you see less and less people going out for a smoke break. I can’t remember the last time one of the new workers asked where the smoking spot was. It is amazing how a small change can have such affect on our society.
