    Had friends quit all sorts of ways: cold turkey when the reasons became important enough in their life (several other posters have mentioned things that changed their life), one used Chantix, a bunch used the e-cig vapor stuff. Got the solution with nicotine in it and then gradually lowered the nic content in the vapor until they didn't have a craving for it anymore. Some of my buds still "vape" but don't have any nicotine in it. Just need to oral fixation and they like the taste of what ever mixture they have. Still an expensive hobby though.

I have a best alternative for it just try or opt electronic cigarettes.it helps you to quit your deadly habit.electronic cigarettes does not contain tobacco products like traditional cigarettes have. That is why it is good for your health.

    Agreed, spam. I tried an e-cigarette, and all it did was make me want a real one that much more, but YMMV.

    I am replying without ready the 6 pages. So I may be echoing other posts.

    First, I regret having ever hurt my body. I enjoyed it while doing it, but am working so hard now that I'm aging. I quit smoking around 24 years old. I'm now going on 60. And it was very difficult. But I worked in a hospital, and saw with my own eyes, the tracheotomies, and all of the rest. I had a good reason to quit.

    I used two basic techniques. One is still smoking though.

    I smoked small quantities of cannabis whenever I had the urge. You still get to smoke, but eventually quitting is easy.

    But the one that I found to truly work was a kind of postponement. If I had an urge to smoke, I would switch my brain around by telling myself that I'd have that cigarette in 5 minutes. I know it sounds stupid, but it did help.
    Note to self: 85% of FTP for 20 min.

    Just keep making small strides and continue riding within your limits.

    I overcame congestive heart failure, from smoking and non-stop meth addiction. I went from being barely able to ride around the block twice...to doing 5-hour, 25 mile MTB epics, with 3,000ft of climbing.

    Here's some motivation- My grandfather, Rocco, smoked for about 60 years from about 1925 (when he got here from Italy) to his time in WWII where he went up to a 2 pack/day average until finally quitting in the late 1980's. Today, (July 13, 2013) we are celebrating his 98th birthday on Coronado island. He has no lasting issues that are attributed to smoking.

    Nice. Your uncle Rocco is obviously blessed with great genes. I've often heard if you can quit for longer than 8 years...the lungs almost entirely regenerate all lost/scarred tissue.

    Choose a date within the next two weeks to quit. Don't wait for the "perfect" day – just pick a date and work with it. Put it in your calendar.

    If you'd like:

    List your reasons for quitting - health, family, money.
    Write down some new hobbies you can do instead of smoking – exercise, knitting, making model airplanes- something to keep your hands and mind busy.
    Speak with friends, family, and colleagues and ask for support. Tell them about your plan to quit, so it feels more real to you.
    Start making the changes to push smoking out of your everyday life - stop smoking in the house and in the car. Make your house and car smoke-free, so no one is allowed to smoke inside.

    If I "wisely" invested every penny of what I spent on my 2-pack/day habit, for the past 25 years....I could easily be retired today, riding a top-of-the-line MTB.

    Tobacco is one of the hardest things in the world to quit - but it's so damn worth it.

    Just checking in. 6.5 months and counting.

    It's kind of sad seeing the people standing in the smoking area over by the fence at work.

    Re: Quitting Smoking

    Its been almost two years for me. I smoked for 18 years and I feel like my lungs have completely healed. It really was all in my head. The book posted in this thread was the solution.

    I hope you are already past the point of needing these but if you still do, do the math: the patch costs about the same as a pack-a-day habit.

    Having said that, I quit for 3+ months using the patch twice but neither time stuck. In January, I quit cold turkey and now I rarely ever have the urge to smoke any longer.

    Quitting smoking takes more than the will to quit. It takes commitment and a plan. It may sound corny but those guides that tell you to find shit to do instead of smoking are on to something. Stuff your mug with a donut if you need to or chew on a pencil when you crave. Better yet, do something healthy (e.g. go for a ride) instead. Think about when you normally crave (while driving, drinking, or after success/failure at work) and then pre-plan alternatives for those instances. Break bad habits by replacing them with better habits.

    Oh and some sort of detox program for your first week as a nonsmoker can't hurt either. Start with lots of water and garlic and take it from there.

    Good luck!!

    Exactly. My "plan" to stay quit, was to ride a bike. Little did I know that smoking for 22 years non-stop, turned my fitness into mush. Riding a bike at first was actually HARDER than the act of quitting itself!

    If I had to do it all over again....I'd still buy another bike.

    Congrats! I smoked for 20+ years a pack and a half a day. Ive been smoke free for 4 years now.

    Seeing as you have successfully stopped I'll skip the how to advice, and go straight to these warnings:

    • Each time you quit it's gets harder and harder to stop. You said "I'll never go back", GOOD, don't do it! You think that was hard? Next time will be much more difficult.
    • After a while (month, year or more) your brain may try to trick you into starting again, by trying to fool you into thinking you could be one of those annoying 'occasional smokers', or that it was not that hard to quit. Don't do it!

    Quitting Smoking

    Hey guys just wanted to send out a quick thank you to everyone on this post/topic. And a very special thanks to who ever the hell 1st posted about Allen Carr's easy way to quit smoking book. I am 29years old. I have been a "full time" smoker since the age of 14. I quit two times in the past 4 years. Both times using Chantix. 1st time made it about 6 months and the last time I quit for about a year. Well getting back into mountain biking after 14years, I starting looking into quitting again..... Hopefully this time for good. So I spent the $150+ on my starter pack of Chantix and was waiting for the "right time" to start taking it. Fearing once again how it make me feel taking it and how it messed with my head it is still sitting in my med cabinet. About two weeks ago I was looking around on MTBR and saw a quitting smoking post. Shocked to see that on here I had to take a look. Well after reading through all the posts I went on to amazon the next day and ordered Allen Carr's book. I can not even tell you the last time I read a book. But it was $12.90. What did I have to loose. So after 3-4 days of reading after work, I finished the book on this past Monday Aug 5th at 9:45pm. At 9:46pm I became a non smoker again. And I must say it was very easy. There are a few times that can be rough for the first few days but I must say it is worth it. Anyway..... Sorry for the long story. Thanks again for everyone on this topic. If you are reading this, still smoking and want to quit . STOP reading this post and go buy the book already. You won't regret it. I am so looking forward to my first non smoker ride this weekend and hacking up all the shit from my lungs the entire time. Thanks again all.

    Quitting Smoking

    So almost a full month without smoking. I must say I feel great !!!! Sure there are a few times now and again I'm like "hey shouldn't I be smoking right now". Like after a meal. But for the most part I have no desire to light one up ever again. I'm around them everyday at work and it still does not make me want one. I know now that I'm not missing out on anything. After about 2weeks I was able to feel the difference on the trail, I have made a few climbs that I could not do before and I only have to rest for a few moments after. I'm very excited for more to come. Also for those of you out there that are worried about the weight gain. I have not gained a pound ( and I'm a 290# clyde that does not eat all that well) but now its time to loose some..... Now last but not least the most important gain of all so far. I have finally had the energy after a long day at work to run around the yard chasing after my 18 month old daughter. I will never trade that for cigarettes ever again. Thanks again everyone for all the kind words and most of all thanks for telling be about that amazing book!!!! I truly did learn the "easy way to quit smoking". Thank you Allen Carr !!

    Quitter myself...twice.

    First time after 6-7 years of pack a day smoking. Used patches, but they only help partially, when I had cravings red crunchy apples helped. I would go thru few kgs a day.

    Second time this was me being stupid so I started smoking again but quit a year after. This was pretty easy because I decided I'll quit during Ramadan and did so successfully.

    tldr. crunchy apples helped me during cravings.

    Bought a Giant Talon 27.5 5 last Wednesday, and started back on the E-Cig same day. Haven't had a cig since, been riding ~15 road miles a night. Hitting some trails tomorrow, can't wait! Mind over matter. I will eventually quit the E-Cig as well. I'm sure the trails are going to be great motivation for lung capacity!

    That's awesome. You gotta make sure you handle first two weeks without cigarettes at all. First two weeks is when your body is getting used to no nicotine and tons of other chemicals.

    If you do smoke, you will delay this process by few more days if not a week. And it will not even worth it, it will be really disgusting, it will taste like the first cigarette you ever smoked, that taste after which you need a gallon of coke to make it disappear.

    Stay strong brother!

    I smoked for 27yrs and tried everything...I'd hit three months and depression would hit me and I'd start again for relief. Eventually breathing problems hit and I had to quit. A co-worker had an ecig so I tried it. I stopped the day I started with the e-cig. I've not smoked in over three years now. I do still use the e-cig though but all my breathing issues are gone (I have data measured by a pulmonologist).

    A key with the e-cig is to use a high enough nicotine level and powerful enough battery to suit your own need depending on your level and type of addiction. A physical habit smoker can use the skinny cig shaped types and it will work. For heavily nicotine dependent like I was, a bigger battery type "mod" like my pro-vari and higher nicotine level like 24 or 36mg will get the job done.

    The bigger battery gives you all day time and also higher intensity vapor so the nicotine absorbs properly. That was the key for me.

    I'll add that 18650 battery is the key. There are a ton of mods (the vaporizers) out there but the 18650 ones work best.

    Hey Guys I just wanted to say thanks. Because of the recommendations on this thread I went and bought the Alan Carr book and I'm about half way through. As per the recommendations in the book I will continue to smoke until I finish the book but I will report back after. Once again Thanks this thread was the motivation I needed.

    Quick update guys, I've been an ex smoker for 2 weeks. It was a damn sight easier than I thought it was going to be. I have had a few I want to stab everybody moments but not as many as I thought I would.
    Just need the shoulder to come good so I can get back on the bike and see the difference.

    That's awesome man. Congrats. I'm a little over two months smoke free after Allen Carr's book. It does get easier. There are still a few times a week I have a moment I think I should smoke, but then I remember I'm a non smoker. Other wise I'm around it everyday and does not bother me much at all. I feel bad for the smokers that still believe that It's way too hard to quit. If your ready to quit, this book will make it happen.

    Riding will help get the tension out for sure. After about six months I noticed the biggest breathing and sense of smell improvements. I could notice someone smoking in a car in front of me way up the road...I never noticed things like that before.

    3.5yrs later I still want a smoke if drinking or if I over eat heh. Not sure that ever goes away.

    In a couple weeks, it'll be three years smoke-free for me. I think I'll use that as justification for buying a new fork! Quit smoking soon after I started riding, my lungs just couldn't handle it. For anyone who's having trouble quitting, keep at it!

    The best thing about smoking cigarettes is the immediate boost in health and energy you feel when you finally quit. Nearing 50 I was feeling pretty worn, but 2 weeks after quitting I felt 20 years younger and had twice the energy. Non- smokers never get to experience that buzz!

    A year and a half later I still like the smell of them but never have even the slightest desire to light one of my own. I don't get sick nearly as often and generally feel a lot healthier but I've lost that initial power boost I felt when I first quit, so I'm considering taking up the habit again for about a year and then quitting to feel that rush once more.

    I'm kidding of course, congratulations to everyone who has dumped the nicotine monkey!

    Nice work mate. It does get easier 3 weeks in and I don't even think about smoking much anymore. I cant recommend the book enough though.
    My only regret is that I didn't do it sooner.

    I have been quit for over a year after 20 years of a about 7-8 smokes a day. I have always been active playing racquetball 3-4 days a week & never had any breathing issues & took up mountain biking 3 months ago, there are some days that I will have coughing spells for a couple of days, the trails I have around me have grinding uphills to get to the honey pot for the down hill fun. Just curious if anyone else has the coughing spells like I have? since it has started getting colder it seems to be getting worse, some days not as bad as others but when I ride with guys that want to talk & carry conversations while riding up hill it seems the coughing is worse. lol

    I quit smoking in '92. I wouldn't recommend the way I stopped. I was hit by a car working on a county road, compound femur fracture. After 12 days in the hospital, and a good supply of drugs, I decided to never start up again. It wasn't hard for me. I was so drugged up even food wasn't a concern. I was 27 and in great shape, minus the smoking. In 3 months I lost 35 lbs of muscle.

    Even after all these years of not smoking I still get an urge. It's not from the smell, or the normal triggers when you're in the throes of quitting, but it's the romantic foreplay of rolling a cigarette and the first drag. I guess it's the feeling of anticipation of the high nicotine used to give me. If I see someone rolling a cigarette I get a little nostalgic and for a second I'll go back to that place when I was addicted.

    Good to all that have quit.

    Poe4soul, it might be a good idea to read Allen Carr's "The Easy Way to Stop Smoking". I don't smoke, but after reading about the success people have had with it in this thread, brought a couple copies to give to people I care about.

    I skimmed thru it. It makes sense, and is a real eye-opener. He really goes into why people smoke, and explains how the perceived pleasures of smoking are really non-existent.

    He doesn't use scare-tactics, yet it made me glad to be a non-smoker. You may have the same experience with it :-).

    Thanks for the reference. I haven't smoked in 20 years. It will never happen again. I'll put it on the list but it's a long list of books. Reading Eat to Live right now which is about 180* from a smokers lifestyle as you can get.

    I gave up last January, not as a resoluton, was on 14th - so coming up for a year. I had been a smoker for 25'ish years, with a 5 year quitting period in there somewhere.

    What actually did it for me this time, is that I was prepared for the cravings and how hard it was going to be. I didn't use any gum/patches or whatever, just stopped one Monday with a guy at work (who has since started again).

    So - part of my issue when I gave up previously was that I would actually stress out about being stuck somewhere, having a really bad day and wanting to smoke, but not being able to - so for the first 6 months this time, I carried a pack with 4 smokes and a lighter in it... sounds really odd, but I think it actually helped.

    Good luck to everyone else who's trying to quit smoking or anything else!!!

    Quitting Smoking

    Really damn cool to read all of these success stories. I quit smoking about 5 years ago - time flies. Congrats to all of you on your journeys to a much healthier lifestyle.

    I've been smoking since I was 14, now 34. Tried quitting several times with no success. Cold turkey, patches, cloves, tons of pot, and lastly e-cigs. I am now going on day 4 with no smoking, although I cheated and got a couple root canals so I slept through the first 24 hours (severe dental phobia so I was sedated and am still on heavy meds and in tons of pain, going back after the weekend to have them finish the job, they obviously missed a root or something in one of the teeth) and now take a couple puffs off the e-cig every couple hours to keep me on the wagon. My original plan was to buy a nice new acoustic guitar, and hit a bike park and rent a DH rig to see what all the fuss is about with the money I save, but now its all going to the $16k worth of dental work I need. Dunno how I'm gonna afford that though, the 2 root canals out of pocket wiped me out.
    Still, even after 3 days of laying in bed hurting, I can already breathe better and my sense of smell is increasing significantly, which worries me because I already had a pretty sensitive sniffer, I'm afraid I'll never get the house clean enough once I'm back on my feet.

    How does everyone deal with being around your old smoking buddies or going to a bar where everyone smokes? I am a musician so I can't just stop going to venues ya know?

    Good luck everyone!

    Quitting Smoking

    It's always a fight and it only takes one to start everything all over and you have to start the suffering all over to quit again. 82 days for me so far
