Hi everybody I'd really appreciate some advice.

I'm a 19 year od guy who used to smoke from the age of 16 around 20-30 cigarettes a day but managed to quit 8 months ago.

I had been using electronic cigarettes and found them okay but still craved cigarettes.

The other week however I had my first cig in 8 months on a drunken night out. I really regret it.

Over the last 2 weeks I'm up to smoking 10 - 15 a day. I really want to quit for good, I hate the lingering smell.

Any advice on quitting for good ? Any good e-cigs? A mate of mine quit using herbal cigarettes. Has anybody any experience of them ? Thanks

I don't know how much help this will be as I myself have never smoked, but many of my family used to smoke and quit.

The one thing everyone says makes the quitting process harder is "trying" to quit. To be in the mindset that you haven't quit yet, but are trying, is like a drawn out torture. They all agreed that it was easier to just quit and that's it, no weaning, no gradual taper off. Just stopping cold turkey was the only way they managed to do it. My grandma was the last to quit and she also "tried" for the longest time out of everyone. Eventually she just decided she was throwing out the packet and wasn't buying any more, and she didn't buy any more, and she hasn't smoked since.

Of course everyone is different so I'm not saying this will definitely work for everyone, but it seems that's what most of the ex-smokers I know agree on.

in America a lot of people use the drug wellbutrin stop smoking.my mother smoked 2 packs of cigarette for forever.they told her if she didn't stop smoking she would have full-blown emphysema.her doctor put her on wellbutrin to help her quit.I was impressed she actually quit for a long time. I catch your time from time smoking cigarettes. She can barely walk down the hallway. I have to take her to the emergency room once every 3 months because she's having problems breathing.quit smoking. the outcome is certain but nobody knows when it's going to happen.do your loved ones a favor stop smoking. They love you and would hate to lose you.

E-cig is what I can recommend to you since Dad is using it now after he decided to give up tobacco and the traditional cigarette smoking. He also said that he's having a hard time dealing with the process of quitting but through electronic cigarette, he's now coping because he gets the same sensation he wants from it.

I quit a long time ago and never looked back. I think it's easier for some people. All depends on your situation.
