Re: Going to quit smoking need some help.

1st good tip is don't set a date it adds even more stress to a stressful situation. 2nd good tip don't beat yourself up too much if you don't quit when expected as it is the hardest thing you'll ever do. I don't think starting two things at once is ideal the new job/internship and quitting. 3rd tip I also think quitting cold turkey is the best way but others have been very successful using nicotine replacement aides. This site is pretty good for support. 4th tip Drink lots of water, sugar free candies, exercise and 5th tip tell everyone your trying to quit so when you are unpleasant they'll understand why.


6th and most important tip: go into thinking that you want to quit not that your have to quit and it's a punishment and your sure to be successful at it.

Good luck
