I was just googling ''How to stop smoking'' and then I realized..what am I doing, and I put down my last ciigarette, with still 7 cigarettes left in my pocket. The reason is, I keep postponing the date evry time, and it feels as if Im never going to find the right day to stop. Is this an Ok way to stop? And what is my next important steps? Thanks for your support!!

Right now is always the best time to stop.     Throw away the last seven.  I threw away 2 unopened cartons plus 5 packs!  
 

I’m not telling you it’s easy, it’s not...but it’s doable.  Don’t wait until your doctor tells you your main artery is 100% blocked and you need a stent.  And you have a spot on your lung.  STOP NOW.  Good luck and stick close by and read read read.

Hi Annien, YES it's a GREAT way to quit! I had known for a while that I needed to quit too and just decided one day to not buy anymore. That was almost five years ago now :) The only REALLY important step to take is to not smoke! But as far as tips and clues go, I recommend getting yourself some sweets to suck on as our bodies seem to crave that when we first quit. Also listen to your body, it's going to go right to work to start cleaning the years of damage we did by smoking so if it's craving something, give it what it wants. And if your body needs rest, rest.

We also have great articles and videos about our addiction so be sure to look at all our various forums. The stuff we feel helps the most has been pinned to the top of the forum pages. 

Again, congratulations on choosing to quit, you won't regret it :)

Perfect.

 

The one incontrovertible rule for starting a quit is that you ash out the last cigarette and commit to never going back to smoking.  

 

You have done that.  You're on your way now.

There are options that will facilitate your quit.  The articles and videos that can be found here will help you recognize the traps and lies of nicotine addiction.  Making use of the resources available on this site will help you sort out most of the issues related to quitting.

 

As for the most important steps, never forget the two rules of quitting: (1) DON'T SMOKE! and (2) If you have any further questions refer back to Rule #1.

Welcome to our forum Annien.  Just stopping is the only way you can quit.   Smoking is such an awful addiction that keeps robbing us of life.  Stay close to the forum because there is plenty of help here.  You can do this!

Welcome aboard Annien, and yes just stopping with several left is the best way ---- that is how I did it.  Quitting is not the easiest thing to do but coming here everyday for help, support, knowledge or just to socialize will most definitely help you --- Keep Strong!!!

There is only one "OK" way. 
Put the cigarettes down and never smoke another so long as you live. 
Anything else is unnecessarily irrelevant detail. 
None of that other crap matters. 

There is one-and-only-one step:
Never. Smoke. Again. 
ALL successful quitters are stuck at this step and will never move past it.  
ALL failed quits fail when this step fails. 
Nothing. Else. Matters.

About us

QuitTrain®, a quit smoking support community, was created by former smokers who have a deep desire to help people quit smoking and to help keep those quits intact.  This place should be a safe haven to escape the daily grind and focus on protecting our quits.  We don't believe that there is a "one size fits all" approach when it comes to quitting smoking.  Each of us has our own unique set of circumstances which contributes to how we go about quitting and more importantly, how we keep our quits.
