Fuck Quit smoking more than 3 months ago, still have cravings

What the fuck.

I used to be fine for weeks at a time. Now it's like at least once every 2-3 days I'm craving this shit. Been debating a trip to the store for at least 45 minutes now.

I know there's like neurological changes, neuron pathways that get readjusted and shit, but 3 months should be long enough.

I wanna get work done, Jesus.

My grandfather still felt regular cravings after 40 years off cigarettes...

They only got less and less frequent but never went completely away.

Always thought that three months would be enough! Maybe you could try hypnotherapy.

Find a substitute like munching on some carrot sticks or chewing on a pen, or whatever else you can do. Don't sit there considering going to the store...that's torturous.

It's been about a year and a half for me, and I still get cravings...sometimes pretty strong.

I chewed 1-2 packs of 5 gum daily to beat the craving. Now I lowered it to 4 packs of gum/week. You can replace teeth but you can't replace your lungs. Stay strong dude like the other people are saying, you can fucking do it

I don't get cravings anymore. Only when I'm drinking because the buzz will never be the same without those cigarettes so I drink till I drop LOLZ

I take super deep breaths and think about how clean the air is that I'm breathing and how good I feel now compared to when I smoked. By the time I would exhale the craving would be gone. I quit 18 months ago but haven't had cravings for the past year.

Stopping smoking is one of my greatest accomplishments. I am incredibly proud of it. It wasn't easy. But it was one of the best decisions I have made.

i smoked for seven years and quit just over a year ago now (ty ecigs for the assistance.) when people smoke indoors around me now i find it absolutely disgusting and it reinforces my excellent decision to quit.

at the same time, i know how it is, don't give in! mind over matter yo.

chew gum like .hack mentioned. I quit 15 years ago, don't have anymore cravings at all and haven't for a long time. can't stand the smell anymore.

I used to chew gum every waking hour for the first couple of years. Now just 1-2 times a day. Hang in there, it will eventually get easier.

I've been smoking since I was 7 and "quit" several times for periods of a year or more. Last time I quit about 3 years ago for about a year. Then slowly started to smoke again. No matter how long I don't smoke, cravings never go away.

3 days ago I got wisdom tooth pulled, and decided to quit again while I had another reason. Didn't smoke for 2 days and now thinking about going and getting some clove smokes. I hate them and now I am thinking whenever I'll get cravings, I'll make 2-3 hits and throw it away.

Also, since I stopped smoking 3 days ago, coffee consumption went way up. From a standard 0-1 cup a day to 4-5... :-/ Just get this feeling that I got to do something every time I feel like smoking...

I quit drinking coffee when I quit smoking. It just made me want to smoke because they went so well together.

Once I got past the worst of the withdrawal of smoking, I was able to start drinking coffee again.

a friend of mine quit after 10 years, and has no cravings. i think its only mental issue, you just need to fully accept that smoking is no good, and your mind will stop tricking you into thinking that you want it

ecigs, reducing nicotine levels to zero FTW

I smoked for 20 odd years and gave up quickly, painlessly and easily using ecigs and now don't smoke them and haven't smoked a cigarette in over 3 years, with no cravings.

I can give you a link if you like

It depends on how you gave up. I've given up many times and always came back. The last ime I used Allen Carr's book and it helped me realise and teach myself that I'm not "giving up" anything. The trouble with thinking that way is seeing that you're depriving yourself of something. You have to realise what the act of smoking is (and what it will deprive you of) and then see that not smoking is providing you with things that smoking deprives you of.

I recommend you read that book. You need to realise, as I finally did, that when you're "giving it up" and waiting for the moment of no longer being addicted it doesn't arrive. When you stand against them and look at them and the addiction for what they are, the craving to have a fag just disappears.

I look back now (1 year or so off the fags) and actually can't recall when I stopped missing them and when I realised I was free from them. I just know that now, even when drunk, I'm actually opposed to, even angered by, the idea of having a fag. Shift them paradigms and don't give in.

Look, nicotine is out of your system, you no longer have a physical addiction. If you have one here or one there, suddenly you slide down that slope into a full blown smoker again, which sucks sooo much. Few smokers, if asked would they have started smoking if they knew what they know now, would start. So why start again? There's no positives. (Also, try to avoid replacement, because you're masking over the issues. Tackle it head on and tell your mind to fuck off.)

Sounds stupid, but go see a hypnotist. My old man went to see one 8 years ago. Hasn't had one since without even really wanting one.

Me on the other hand. I'm weak and need the thought of death an an early age.

This^. God has spoken.

Anyways, stay strong, and to avoid cravings, try to always stay chewing on anything sweet/salty and crunchy/chewy.

You can do it man, I think the hardest part is that people who don't smoke just don't get how strong the cravings are... A friend once told me that cigarettes are more addicting that Heroin, no junkie shoots up 20 times a day.

I'm in the same boat, 1.5 months in. I chew my Fruit Chill Nicorettes with my morning and afternoon coffee. Takes the edge off but sometimes I get ridiculous cravings. I'm quite optimistic that this time I'll stick to it, but then I hear things like this and lose all hope...

Fuck man don't go to the store - just think how bad you will feel if you have a smoke after being off the fags for 3 months. 3 Months is a long time to go without smoking, you should feel proud of that and that should spur you on to stay off them. Smoking now will just ruin all your good work.

Its a slippery slope and your mind is just trying to trick you into having that 1 cigarette, once you give in to this you'll soon start back on that slippery slope and before you know it you'll be back to smoking as much as you did before you decided to give them up.

After 3 months your lungs are just starting to heal. Just a few will stop all that - keep it up. And I second e-cigs if you just can't help yourself. Just get the no nicotine versions.

I've never smoked, but I get the craving to buy a can of dip every time I drive by a 7-11 or stop to get gas. I quit for almost a year and fell off the wagon several months ago. I've been off it again for about 3 weeks, and I'm through the nicotine withdrawal phase (which is a week of hell), but I still get cravings about once a day.

Keep at it Ar Scion. You've gone this long, just keep that shit up and stay away from the liquor stores and quickie marts. They're the DEVIL!

As mentioned above a few times, maybe buying yourself an ecig would be helpful. You can get the eliquid for it with 0 nicotine - just the feeling of inhaling the vapor may help.

And don't forget weed. THC - To Hell w/ Cigs

I knew a guy who quit smoking, and he started carrying a toothpick around everywhere just so he could have something to put in his mouth. The muscle memory involved in habitual smoking is nearly as bad as the chemical addiction.

I personally quit by switching to chewing tobacco. It tasted like shit, so I eventually was able to break that habit easier than the cigarettes. Not sure if that approach would work better for anyone.

I quit smoking two years ago, and the cravings never stopped. Oddly enough, I quit as I was going through a divorce and didn't backslide. About a month ago, I had a particularly brutal urge after over two years and just said, "fuck it." The rationale, "I'll just have one," never works...

With eCigs the trick is to start with full nicotine and work your way down to zero over a period of months. Don't go from cigarettes to zero as it wont work.

This strategy is great for people just starting to drop smoking, but if he's already been off cigs for 3 months there is absolutely no reason to go back onto nicotine.

Well if he is thinking about going back to the cigs it's a better option to just go to ecig full nicotine and move down. Otherwise the better option is not smoking anymore of course.

What helped me was a chart similar to the one below, post it somewhere in the house where you'll see it every day:

Quote:
Smoking cessation timeline – the health benefits over time

* In 20 minutes, your blood pressure and pulse rate decrease, and the body temperature of your hands and feet increase.

* Carbon monoxide in cigarette smoke reduces the blood’s ability to carry oxygen. At 8 hours, the carbon monoxide level in your blood decreases to normal. With the decrease in carbon monoxide, your blood oxygen level increases to normal.

* At 24 hours, your risk of having a heart attack decreases.

* At 48 hours, nerve endings start to regrow and the ability to smell and taste is enhanced.

* Between 2 weeks and 3 months, your circulation improves, walking becomes easier and you don’t cough or wheeze as often. Phlegm production decreases. Within several months, you have significant improvement in lung function.

* In 1 to 9 months, coughs, sinus congestion, fatigue and shortness of breath decrease as you continue to see significant improvement in lung function. Cilia, tiny hair-like structures that move mucus out of the lungs, regain normal function.

* In 1 year, risk of coronary heart disease and heart attack is reduced to half that of a smoker.

* Between 5 and 15 years after quitting, your risk of having a stroke returns to that of a non-smoker.

* In 10 years, your risk of lung cancer drops. Additionally, your risk of cancer of the mouth, throat, esophagus, bladder, kidney and pancreas decrease. Even after a decade of not smoking however, your risk of lung cancer remains higher than in people who have never smoked. Your risk of ulcer also decreases.

* In 15 years, your risk of coronary heart disease and heart attack in similar to that of people who have never smoked. The risk of death returns to nearly the level of a non-smoker.
Keep in mind it only takes a couple puffs to go back to 0.

He's been off long enough that the dependence is psychological, not physical, and 'moving down' isn't going to fix a psychological dependence.

Next month will be 3 years since I quit and I still get cravings. The good thing is that I hated the smell of smoke before I started (picked up the habit when I was drunk lol) and now that I quit I feel the same way. You'll slowly get over it, but there's always going to be those cravings. The good thing is that even when I tried taking a drag, I wanted to vomit. It's disgusting again. You just have to continue to stay strong and it'll go away.

Hmmm.......If you really think about it that is not logical.

Unless that couple of puffs make you restart smoking long term again it does not reset that table back to zero.

If for example you haven't smoked for 10 years and then take a couple of puffs and no more you will not be at any higher risk than you were before those puffs (except for a tiny tiny negligible amount), it certainly wouldn't put you back 10 years.

Going through a similar scenario, but I look at it now as a life destroyer, and now I just want to get fit,as someone said smoking is nil positives, keeping clean is the way, if your thinking is I want one, think what happens if you do and it`s effects , beating yourself up about it, feeling shit, health etc
trust me it ain`t worth it, when the thought/craving comes hit it with another thought...a challenging good thought, envisage something good , such as looking and feeling healthier it can be done, read the success stories above

LOL. I've been smoking since I was 14. Seriously. Have tried quitting a couple of times, but I realized it was impossible. Besides, I really do enjoy smoking - I don't want to quit. So here's me smoking my lungs away.

Good luck!
