Kratom was extremely helpful in getting me off pain pills that I had been legitimately prescribed, now if only I could use it to quit smoking. Instead, Kratom seems to trigger the desire for a cigarette. :(

Oh no! Smoking is hard to quit. I mean some use pads, gum and vape, but it's still hard. I can't say kratom excels at helping quit smoking, but at least the worst (pain pills) is over!

I'm sure it'll still be a battle, but you can do this!

I waited a year after quitting pills before I finally ditched my chain-vaping nicotine habit. Chantix worked for me ONCE I WAS READY! I actually could not afford it any longer and that was motivating - LOL

It has been just over a year now and I am still struggling with not being able to eat/drink/vape/whatever constantly. Ate cakes and pies for a while and finally made myself sick of that. Just now getting the weight (from eating constantly-especially popcorn) off.

You have my sincere sympathy and understanding.
Laurie

Thanks. I'm sure there are many smoking stories here. I paid $11.06 for a pack just an hour ago. Is anyone else watching Willie Nelson on PBS? "Funny how time just slips away". . . . yeah, I guess so. Just for the record, I haven't decided to quit yet. I once paid a hypnotist $125. (I pretended to be "out" because I felt bad for her - she was trying so hard to hypnotize me). I went back to my car and lit up. We can drop it if you like. I'll work it out. =D>

If you decide to stop smoking, I can attest to the beauty of Allen Carr's Easy Way to Stop Smoking. I immersed myself in his book and videos for four days and it made so much sense, and gave me so much confidence, that I no longer feared "the little monster" of nicotine addiction. Stopping smoking became a series of victories as I now realized that any slight discomfort or pangs of withdrawal that I felt merely meant that I was slaying my addiction.

Allen Carr knew his stuff, he described himself as having been the worst nicotine addict in the world, and he walks you through the science of how you've been brainwashed into thinking that stopping smoking involves a sacrifice.

At the end of the book he especially stresses not to push his method onto smokers, and only mention it if they talk about stopping.

The desire to stop smoking is all that's needed for his method to work. :) I stopped smoking on April 5, 2011.

Funny enough Allen Carr talked about his experience in trying a hypnotist to stop smoking. It didn't take, but he saw that something had been happening, and that helped put him on track to seeing that smoking addiction is due in large part to the brainwashing that got people into smoking in the first place.

Edit: P.S. Funny enough, on page one of his book he tells you to go ahead and light up whenever you want when reading the book. It's important to be relaxed so that his message can penetrate, he says.

Spoiler alert: The book is a highly pleasant form of reverse brainwashing, and by the end of it you'll have shredded the sophisticated programming of the tobacco industry which worked its way into our culture which reinforced the power of nicotine addiction.

Edit 2: Lol, I was so comfortable reading his book that I took several days of re-reading it to make sure I was 100% confident in making the jump.

Sounds interesting. "Nothing to give up" - kinda Zen-like.
