Hello all -
I am trying to quit smoking.
First off, I have noticed that every time I try to quit smoking (this time included) it seems that I get sick, is there any correlation between quitting and weakening the immune system?

Second, has anyone tried the "smoke away" system?
If not what worked for you? What didn’t work.

I need help

ok...you think you are getting sick because your body is
ridding itself of the toxins.....

any anti smoking program will only work if you are
ready to quit....there is no majic pill..

i used "smoke away" and felt like i was going to
die for two days...you have to take the huge
smelly pills and the little nic pills at the same time..
the directions dont tell you that...

you can quit, you just have to want to...

I did not forget...I just misplaced the thought...

I know it sounds crazy that when I am doing something that is BETTER for my body I get sick, but I swear it is true. I know that tobaco is more addictave than most other hard core drugs, and I know that when users of thoes drugs quit they get sick, so I was just wondering

I know there isnt an majic pill, im just asking what worked best for thoes who tried.

So did the smoke away system work for you? Or no?

Smithfly, what's happening is you are going through withdrawl. Some people can handle that and some just need help. I quit cold turkey in '88 and have been lucky enough to stay 'smoke-freee', but not everyone can do that. It's very difficult. And I still have days I when I want one. I never got really sick, just sleepy and hungry and my partner will say BITCHY, but that passed. On one hand, you had to learn how to smoke, now you have to learn how not to. Stay focused and if you continue to feel bad or ill, see your doctor. There's a lot of aids that are now available compared to when I quit. Best wishes!

Ah, Summer, Fenway Park, Boston Red Sox and Beer.....

Would it work to just go a little bit at a time on yer own... like say if you smoke 5 a day, stay at 5 for a week, then go 4 a day for a week, then 3 a day for a week, then 2 a day for a week, then 1 a day for a week, then one every second day for a week, then every 3-4 days for a week, then one a week, then none??


What could possibly go wrong?

I think it's a question of a) wanting to quit & b) having the support of your surroundings. If you want to quit, the people around need to know that you're going to be a) miserable and b) cranky!

My grandmother, who has been smoking 2-3-4 packs a day for a LONG time quit overnight. She dumped her cigarettes and she haven't smoked since (except the one she smokes every now and then when the urge gets her).

I smoked a pack a day for 12 years.
I tried cutting down etc but, finally, about 16 years ago, I quit COLD TURKEY.
I have not touched a single cigarette since. The reason is, I believe that being an ex-smoker is like being an alcoholic. You may quit driking but you can fall off the wagon just like that!

If at first you don't succeed, skydiving is not for you
