I puffed like a steam engine.
In 2005 I used the nicotine patch and it was not that hard to quit.
The patch cost about the same as a heavy smoking habit.
3 step program over about 4-6 weeks.
There are other ways just check with your doctor the next time you get together.

I am in the throws of quitting, I have two small kids and I do not want them to see me smoking. I started by not smoking at home, that meant when I was on the property I would not smoke. Then I moved to I would not smoke in the car. and now I wont smoke on my breaks at work. So now I found that I am too busy to take the time to stop get out of the car and have a smoke. I am now down to just a few drags off a cig every few days. It took me awhile but the patch and the gum didnt work for me. getting my mind made up to quit worked
thanks for quitting for the kids .
Daniel it can be done and you have the best start ever because you Know you have to. other people are counting on you.
I will pray for you. God Bless

I've never smoked but I wish you the best in kicking the habbit..... Just think on the money you will save to buy more tractors!

gave me Zyban to stop smoking. Zyban is the same thing as Buspar, which is an
antidepressant. It made it a lot easier to quit & I didn't have any side effects from it.
The 1st week was a little rough but I wanted to quit bad enough that I got thru it.
The next problem was Thanksgiving & Christmas. You know when U have a big meal,
U want a smoke. I got thru that & then it was all downhill. I don't know if Zyban is
still used or not. I have seen the ad for Chantix on TV, but it look like the side effects
for that are worse than what U are trying to cure.
Good luck & if U want to quit bad enough U will make it. Like somebody above said,
look at the extra money you'll have for tractors.

I'm always glad to hear when people stop smoking. I imagine it isn't easy, especially when it something that has been a part of your life of 10+ years. Best wishes to all the "quitters"!
Been 37 years of bad habit. Not committed myself yet, but is on my mind constantly.
