just my 2 cents.
IME, it help to get you started but once you are down to 1 or 2 a day you need a new strategy or you start building up again. then it becomes a never ending cycle. thanks though. but the wife and kids are a definitely a motivator. gotta keep that in mind more often.

It's not that hard. The biggest thing is not to be a pussy about it. No matter what you do, there will be hard days. That's when you need to nut the fuck up. People get in trouble when they start making excuses for themselves, or telling themselves that it's okay to quit because it's such a difficult thing to do. That dog don't hunt.
Things that help:
-Minimize free time: the hardest part for me was getting past lighting up whenever I was just waiting 5 minutes for shit to happen (the bus, meeting a friend for dinner, etc.) - at work all i have is time, its one of the hardest parts to quitting, posting helps tho to push of the ciggs
-Don't hang around smokers: duh also hard, all my co-workers smoke
-Cut out any drinking: another duh rarely do, for other reasons
-Exercise: endorphins and all that good jazz need to do this, good idea
-Sex: it's just good to have (though I occasionally miss the post coital smokerettes) also, great advise
-Sprints: it's like punishment for smoking. no fucking way
-Put your cigarette money toward a fun purchase instead noice!
Also, throw away the fucking cigarettes. You know that smoking them gets you no further toward your goal.
thanks gale. yeah you arent the first to not expect me to be a smoker. that would be my parents
