It amazes me to see a person smoking prior to the gym. I live in L.A. and people sitting in their car smoking weed is much more common.

I've never smoked in my life, but I've chewed tobacco since I was 17, about 2 cans worth every single day. Finally made the decision to quit, what a disgusting habit and I'm ashamed to admit I've ever partaken in it. This is a great article.http://forum.bodybuilding.com/showthread.php?t=172590831 <<< New training log as of 10/7/16

Very good article. I've lost loved ones to lung cancer, due to smoking and it's such a slow, painful process to watch someone with lung cancer. Hoping anyone here struggling with giving up smoking, continues to fight the good fight.~ Body - Mind - Spirit ~

Smoking horrible i smoked for ten yearz. What helped me quit was my metabolism was extremly high and i was trying to bulk eating stupid amounts of Food. Leaving the gym and lighting up. Most peopld can get through the nicotine withdrawl but not the actual habit is what people miss. I quit cold turkey and and been smoke free for almost three years.

But I just smoke once a day. Still though......
Flushed the rest of the pack down the toilet
Cold TurkeyThe primary rule is self discipline - the severe self discipline of dedication and destiny, of great tyrant and master robber.
If you fail the first test then go no further.
Melt into the acquiescent herd.
When the heat is not too hot, shadow-box a few rounds.
Pontificate from the pulpit & snicker through the editorials.
All the while, endure the ghetto deprivations, enjoy the suburban barbeque, dissipate the unearned inheritance.
Great power is not your cup of sassafras.

Good chit op, it was my New Years resolution 1997. I smoked my last one at 11:55 that night, threw the remainder of the pack in the trash and that was it. I had a lingering headache for about a week and a half, cravings were a beast after meals but I did it.I love eggs.

(without reading through the thread)
Haven't had a cigarette since 3 October 2014 and feeling great! Just thought I'd throw that out there.
For me, quitting sucked azz for the first week then it gradually got easier and easier until now, I don't even think about it except to write this post.

I never got addicted to smoking (I hate the smell), but I understand how people have problems with it. From therapy to self-help, sometimes things get too complicated and a little simplicity goes a long way. Fine article here, thanks.See all my protein bar reviews at jonsupps.com

I smoked from around 13 years old for 28 years, between 2-3 packs per day. I always had in my mind I would stop when I would turn 40, for some stupid reason I thought I would be old and wouldn't need to party a lot. Never did.
When I woke up, on my 41st birthday, I just went to a pharmacy store, bought a pack of champix and stoped it. No previous thinking, setting a date, excusing my self to enjoy my birthday, waiting for Monday etc. It was just my mind that cliked, also champix was heavily promoted with a succes rate greater than 60%.
I was nauseated for some time, headaches etc but I hunged in there. I had experiences from late nights with drinking and smoking that felt as bad or worse. Made it with my first serious effort, best gift ever to my self.
I did try nicotine patches etc previously with zero results.

I'm coming up on my 2 year "Quit-iversary" and it is the best decision I have ever made (and the worst was to start in the first place!) But there are definitely times/days I still (psychologically) crave a cigarette. Honestly, what keeps me motivated to STAY quit is exercise/lifting, because I just don't really see smoking + exercise working out too well.
So, I'd just like to add to the OP's suggestions -- CONTINUE to find reasons to STAY quit even after you have. I think that's important. If you lose sight of WHY you quit in the first place, it can be easy to get caught back up in it again (which, happened to me in the past, the first time I quit)

Nice article! It has been so hard for me to fully quit. I have stopped and then started back but never fully quit. One day...soon!

I have a client who smokes and I haven't been able to understand why he hasn't been able to quit after the stress it causes him, but now I feel I grasp his struggle.
Quitnet money and time savings is pretty cool. I hope it'll help motivate him to quit.
As for the nico-gum replacement, I agree that it would still feed the addictive chemical and tastes unpleasant. Gotta find a total substitute, like regular gum or drinking water.
Awesome, awesome. I'm really glad you posted this, thank you for the insight.
My father was a smoker so I've been around it but he always looked shameful when I caught him smoking, so it was never something I thought would benefit me. I had no idea there was such a strong community of people looking to quit smoking and stay off it.
Be strong and carry on.

Have been smoking a pack a day for 6 years now, and I've not smoked for 2 months now and thought I'd share what I did.
I heard very good recommendations on laser accupuncture in the ears, so I gave it a try even though I was pretty sure it was either a scam or placebo, but it really made a world of difference. It took all the cravings for nicotine and the withdrawal symptoms, it really made it very easy to quit. The habit was what got to me though, I had to get an e-cigarette and juice without nicotine to stand it, without it I kept "searching" for something with my hands. However every week I use it less and less, I've come to a point where I often forget where it is and don't care about it for several hours.

The last thing you need circulating in your blood as a bodybuilder is carbon monoxide. It''ll totally impede nitric oxide production and prevent maximal amounts of oxygen and other growth-inducing nutrients/elements reaching the muscle.

It was interfering with my progress so I cut back. I feel it's almost impossible to quit though if I'm drinking or post sex. Or if I'm pissed about something.

thread still alive, nice.
but we've had a few main site articles on smoking since 2003...
