Tonight, I have just subscribed to an interactive online site. I had to answer questions to establish my profile as a smoker, my degree of motivation, my strategy and ways I would put in action (When craving) to go through this whole process of becoming "sober". I was very impressed by the tutorial and all the information I read.
This site is: iQuitnow

Even though there is a forum, chat and help line, I will also attend this forum for extra help and support... I need to be covered with an all-around shield. I really do! I have a tendency to get very depressed every time I am deprived from this drug. Yes, I've tried before... I will need the extra help...
I live alone with my two cats, and I don't see many people.

I did start a fitness program at the beginning of February and am working towards becoming 100% vegetarian (I'm 95%). It has done me a lot of good so far. Being smoke-free would just make even more sense. I'm working so hard towards a healthier lifestyle...

By experience, patches (I wanted to smoke even more and that's all I would think about) and gum, were not effective in my case. My addiction is more psychological than physical. My motivations for becoming cigarette-free are: Money (My main issue), bad smell (clothes, hair and breath), clean air (my apartment), to eliminate toxins from my body and to breath even better. Yes, I know this is not the usual (Stop coughing, etc). I feel healthy already... My cardio is really good, but that means it could be even better... Imagine!

Thanks to Psych Central for being there. I really enjoy the forums for many other issues.

No. I tried and realized that it's too much of a challenge for now. I looked at the advantages and disadvantages, and really, I will keep on smoking. That took off so much pressure, you would not believe how relieved I am of just letting go of this whole idea.

I would love to stop this disgusting, smelly, expensive habit. Hopefully the support and advice here will help me stop. I stopped drinking, youd think it would be easier giving up cigs, again i shall try and try and keep trying till i am free..

I've smoked for two and a half years now (actually started on my 18th birthday) and I've never thought about quitting until this morning. I'm now on Day 01 of 4mg nicotine gum but my consumption of the gum so far is a little unnerving. I hope I can quit for good.

I have been smoke free for 5 days. I am not having too much trouble, because I just don't want to disappoint my family and those who seem to care so much.

Quitting is easy, it happens when you want to quit from within. Endless haranguing back and forth ain't taking you anywhere. Merely saying 'I want to quit' will only boomerang. When you honestly feel from within it happens with effortless ease. Just arouse that honest urge inside you.

But you're Californian.. (Not sure what I'm saying, I'm not from there..)

Thanks for the welcome and this place, Doc.J. I hear new year's just around the corner. That's all I'm gonna say for now.
