  1. Yes, I am pregnant and have been trying to quit got a few yrs now, this pregnancy was a surprise and I don’t want to use any of the OTC stuff as it could be dangerous to the baby so yes this was very helpful

  2. I tried quiting in December…. It was the nausea that did me in. I’ll try the ginger this time. Hope that helps me finally!

  3. Best way to quit smoking is to chose any week day when u do not smoke. Try it with one day then move on with two days and so on. You do not need anything for no smoke for the day, keep yourself calm and health conscious.

  4. I tried these methods to quit and it worked with some added help. I also got super body cleanse at Trader Joes and did these methods. I have been smoke free for 4 months now. I picked the first day of my 2 days off work to start. Then I started the super body cleanse and followed the directions exactly. Then I combined drinking water, putting ginger in my food, taking a multi vitamin and ginseng supplement, and skipped coffee in the morning. The reason I skipped coffee is because for me coffee and a cig in the morning used to start my day. This also helped my high caffeine addiction too, lol. The super body cleanse is a 2 week supply. I also worked out more during those 2 weeks which really helped. After 2 weeks I did not want a cigarette at all, improved my health, and cleansed my body. Now I can’t stand the smell of cigarette smoke and even e cig vapor. I had to quit because I smoked an e cig for a while to try to quit, really bad idea for anyone. The high nicotine levels in e cig juice caused me to develop an allergic reaction to nicotine. So I switched back to regular cigarettes because of the cravings. I tried lower level nicotine e juice and 0 level nicotine level e juice but I was constantly smoking the e cig 10x more than regular cigarettes. The allergic reactions were very minor but I needed to quit completely. So I tried this with my own tweak to these methods and it worked for me.

  5. I was diagonose of Emphysema in 2010 and Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) 3 years ago, our family doctor told me there was no cure but it can only be controled. Ever since then i have been running heather scepter looking for a solution to my problem because i was going to lose my Job if i dont get better, until i ran into this online testimony of Dr Lusanda who have been curing people of COPD with his herbal remedy i immediately contacted him via their email, to God be thy glory i bought this COPD herbal remedy and was cured within 3 weeks of usage, at last this is a break through for all COPD/emphysema patients contact this herbal clinic via their email drlusandaherbal(at)gmail(dot)com or website on www(dot)drlusandaherbal(dot)weebly(dot)com

  6. Transdermal scopolamine patches. Downregulates nicotine receptors. Can produce some intense nightmares. Can cause constipation. Not as nasty as the injection. The best way I have quit is through love. I think of the person who loves me and want to be healthy for her; it gives me strength. She would hold me lots. I am isolated, so I am on the nicoderm patches. Takes up to 6 months to quit, works. Stay away from people who smoke, places where there is smoking. In medical cannabis states, smoking a joint every time you want a cigarette takes about a week. A friend did it, has been off cigarettes for 30 years. His wife says, he ate everything in the house, was good for crap for the week, but well worth it.
