I stopped smoking 58 days ago and just decided that i was stronger than that stupid little cig....i still get the urge but i never give in, I smoked for 29 years and the last couple of years , just really did not like the way i smelled and looked and all that nasty stuff that goes with smoking... so if i can do it anyone can , just start working on it in your head first , imagine yourself not smoking , it wasnt easy but for about two years prior, that 's what i did and then one day after smoking half the day i never lit one up again , and its still a struggle, but i am starting to rip the benefits, my hair nolonger sticks like smoke my skin looks better and my car dont stink. I would go outside to smoke because my husband does not smoke , so that is a start too, dont smoke in your house, for any of you trying to quit, you can do it , you just have to want to , strong anough. Good luck :)

Congratulations on "just stopping." Good job Sini!! You're right, it's a daily struggle. I started getting ready to stop smoking about 5yrs ago. I decided not to smoke in my car anymore. I suffer from anxiety, so I'm never away from the house for more than 2hrs max and I figured I could at LEAST go without a cigarette that long. At the time, I felt like this alone was an enormous accomplishment and it helped me to start thinking like a non-smoker,
I had been a smoker for 33yrs before I quit last July. I've had a couple of relapses, but have been smoke-free now since Jan 25th. I seem to be dedicating an entire YEAR to quitting smoking. This is truly the most difficult thing I've ever done. I haven't smoked in my house in years, but I used to back in the 90's. Gosh, can't even IMAGINE I ever did that!
