    Quitting Smoking - Staying Smoke-Free

    Many of the changes you feel when you first quit smoking don't feel good. Nicotine withdrawal can make you feel grouchy and nervous. You may have trouble sleeping or concentrating. These symptoms can last for a few days to several weeks, but they do go away, especially if you take medicine. You may struggle with changing your smoking habits and rituals. This is a lot to deal with, but keep at it. You will feel better.

    Your worst cravings will probably pass in a few days. But you may keep getting cravings for months. Most people who quit report that they later stop thinking about smoking.

    The following tips may help you stay smoke-free:

    * Deal with temptations and cravings when you quit smoking.
    * Make positive changes in your life, such as starting an exercise program or learning how to manage stress.
    * After you quit, don't smoke at all-not even one puff. Prevent a slip (smoking one or two cigarettes) or relapse (returning to regular smoking) by avoiding smoking triggers, such as alcohol and stress. Don't keep cigarettes in your house or car. If you do slip or relapse, stay calm. Remind yourself that you have a plan, and think about how hard you've worked to quit for good.

    If you have the money, you can buy electronic-cigarettes for like 100-200$, which are basically non-harmful cigarettes, which are easier to quit on.

    My mom's quit smoking 15 times, and it always gets harder. It only takes one moment of vulnerability and a cigarette craving, and boom, you're hooked again.

    Trust me, don't smoke, not worth it.

    I tried to quit once. Worked for ~3 weeks and then a friend asked me if I want 1 cig from him...
    I don't really care about my health so I'll just keep it this way.
