    Has anybody out there successfully kicked the ol' tobacco addiction???? I used to smoke and when I decided to quit it wasn't too hard.

    HOWEVER, the Provincial Gov't just FRIGGIN' MAJORLY upped the taxes on tobacco products so I had to make a choice - Pay over $8.50/forums/images/icons/tongue.gif a tin for chew or quit.

    I chose to quit, but man, I can't remember the last time I felt this bad. I feel like I'm getting the flu and that I'm half-pissed at the same time. NOT NICE!!!! Any ex-chewers out there have any helpful suggextions???? I've already gone through half a bag of Apple/Cinammon Fisherman's Friends.............HELP!!!!

    Might sound stupid but get the nicotine patch. That 'stoned' feeling is nic withdrawal and will last for quite a while. I recently tried quitting smoking and found the patch really helped, even though I did start smoking again./forums/images/icons/blush.gif I found it killed the withdrawal symptoms dead...no 'stoned' feeling or crabbiness at all.
    I'm going to make another atempt real soon...and I'll use the patch again for sure.

    The only problem I can see is that a lot of my "addiction" is habitual, and if I replace chew with some other version, I'd probably start using that product instead.

    I think if I'm going to quit, I may as well go cold turkey. I just can't get used to this friggin' foggy feeling and these wierd hot flashes....../forums/images/icons/tongue.gif

    No, no, no! Drinking is probably WORSE than smoking!!

    Need to do something a little more safer....like jacking off!! /forums/images/icons/wink.gif That will keep your mind off the smokes and drinks and in the gutter thinking about the ladies!!!

    It may also make you blind! /forums/images/icons/tongue.gif

    I smoked my last cigarette on January 23rd. I used the patch and it made quitting relatively easy. Good Luck

    Get the patch. It won't hurt anything and will help a lot with withdrawl. Drink a lot of water. Get some exercise (aerobic) it will help move toxins out of your system. Take 1000 mg. B1 and 4 or so B-Complex and 1000mg. C every day. Find some Pantothenic acid ( a B vitamin) and take 2-3 a day. The vitamins will also handle cravings and adverse effects including depression like symptoms.

    I quit smoking 5 years ago.

    <font color=blue> Just stay strong, Paul ! Kick it's ass ! I agree with the replacing it with something else, although I know a few people that have done the patch and it worked for them but I know a lot more who didn't stop at all since they were still getting what they were trying to stop ......it was just in a different form ! I know in my heart you can beat this addiction !
