Cold Turkey. I had quit for 3 years when a smoker girlfriend moved in, well I picked the habit back up. When she left, the week before Christmas '99:doublefli, so did the habit.

Yea a buddy of mine used Zyban and for like 2 weeks you couldn't talk to him. He was always pissed off. The doctor told him he would have major mood swings. That's something I can't have because If I snap at the wrong person at work then I won't have to worrie about smoking because I won't have the money to buy them after I lose my job....lol

Cold Turkey. Yeah it sucks for a little while, but once you get over it, you never want to go back through it again. I smoked for ten years and was up to 2 packs a day, and I have now been off for over 2.5 years.

Just go cold turkey and never have the first cigarette again.

I quit once back when I was 18 for baseball. I don't remember it being this bad but I also wasn't smoking as much. I don't know why I picked the damn habit back up. Stupid I guess :shrug

Cold Turkey, is the only thing that has lasted.

I quit with the patch a few times befored didn't help, but the permanant deal has been just stopping.

Two big things that helped...

You pretty much can't smoke anywhere in Cali. anymore.

Smokes are about $4 a pack (soon to be raised again). If not for my health, I quit for the fact that I'm a cheap bastard.
