I know how you feel. I started smoking same year after my SSCE and continued until I graduated from the University of Benin. I continued after my you'd service. I finally quit the habit last year November and till today, am yet to feel the urge to smoke.

Here's what I did and I hope it helps.

1. Avoid friends that smoke.
2. Avoid areas that gives you the urge to smoke. Places like clubs, bars, brothels, kparaga joints etc.
3. Look for a substitute addiction besides smoking but please don't turn to alcohol. Instead do stuffs like reading, zen meditation, fasting etc.
4. Cigarette addiction is caused by dopamine. I suggest you read about it.

kindly send me an email for more info memehchinedu@gmail.com

The bolded is really hard but I'll work towards it.
Thanks bro. I really appreciate it.

Discipline is all you need. I'm also battling an addiction problem myself and I've been clean for many weeks now, but it's not cigarettes... You have to make a conscious effort and resist the urge whenever it arises.

I smoked my first stick of cigarette precisely in SS2 in 2007. Since then, I have tried to quit more times than I can count. Even though I know the health hazards attached, I do it anyway. I tried electric cigarettes but still went back to the conventional tobacco sticks. There are times where I smoked probably more than a pack a day, and there were other times where I rarely smoked a month. I just want to drop this habit permanently.

How can this be achieved?
The most potent solution I know: Jesus.

Give Him a chance, and He will turn your life around for good. God bless you bro. Amen

I see. So you have no idea If it was menthol or not?
Re: Enter Here If You Are Trying To Quit Cigarettes by Originalsly: 9:27pm On Jul 11
Bro...if you can do without smoking for a month....then you really don't have a big problem....it is easy for you to quit. For you...smoking is a bad habit..... to others who must smoke daily...smoking is an addiction. The addiction is not the smoke...but the nicotine in the cigarette. The Patch....like a bandaid to stick on the skin.... is very effective in killing the crave to smoke. Why?...because the Patch has nicotine that is absorbed by the body through the skin.....same addiction....different mode of delivery.Keep away fromthe patch.
For you...I suggest you simply do not buy or beg for cigarettes...if you do...wet the pack...if it's a stick...spit on it!...make sure it cannot light...by the time it dries..the urge to smoke will no longer be there.

You don't have to act childish Bro. Why would I even think of stooping that low? I guess you don't know the trauma he's passing through that's why you seize an opportunity to throw cheap shots.

Dolapo all I can tell you is to follow those steps. Have a band of friends that aren't smokers. This was the first thing I did at Asaba before I moved to Lagos this year. Temptation will arise, it depends on you to react positively.

people have this misconception that you can’t be addicted to weed. But its real. If you have a dependency on anything, it’s an addiction. Weed addiction is probably worse because it messes you up mentally, cigarettes is more physical.

In my 400 level I was smoking over 2 packs of benson everyday.
I was hooked.
If anyone had told me at that point I would stop smoking, I wouldn’t have believed it.
I wud wake up in the morning. First thing I’d do wud be to find my lighter and smoke a stick.
Brush my teeth, then smoke another stick. While Cooking indomie for breakfast, I’d smoke another one. While eating, smoke one or two.
It was so bad that if I didn’t smoke before, during and after a meal, I would be constipated.
I had lighters and cigarette holders everywhere.
I could pass a guy smoking and tell u correctly what brand of “ciga” he was smoking.
If a babe didn’t smoke, no matter how beautiful and hot she was, I wouldn’t send her.
There was a day i woke up late at night around 2-3am and i was out of cigarettes.
I looked everywhere. I started having tremors.
I got a sheet of paper and tried smoking thyme...
Yeye thing burnt my throat grin
I have walked long distances at night in the rain to buy “ciga”. Risked being harassed by vigilante groups for walking about in the middle of the night just to buy those white sticks of death...
Kai mehn...
Now the smell of cigarette smoke makes me nauseous. I can’t even sit where people are smoking.
It’s been many years since I smoked last and i have no desire to light a stick.
I thank God for delivering me I swear.

Go to government hospitals and visit those suffering from lungs and heart diseases caused by smoking, their condition will help you appreciate your health now before it's too late!!

Whenever you imagine their condition, you'll pity yourself and forget smoking for life!!

Quit hanging out with other smokers who keeps yapping "one thing must kill a man" yada yada...

Yes, one thing will kill a man but don't buy a painful death with your money!! cry
you are very correct.. I smoke slot also till I had a heart trouble. Had to call it quit before it kills me
Re: Enter Here If You Are Trying To Quit Cigarettes by LAGATA(m): 3:18am On Jul 12
Are you married? If you are not, try dating or marry a lady that dislikes cigarette. I was into this too for a very long time but while dating, my wife told me politely she dislikes my smoking & since then, (3yrs now), I miraculously quitted! It's a thing of the mind sha & strong determination

I know you’re trying to be helpful. When someone is asking for advice they’re looking for a physical/ practical way to solve the issue, not spiritual. Prayer alone cannot help he needs a physical solution. Please!!!
Answers like those are why I find Christianity so underwhelming nowadays.
