Nicotine Addiction :: I Want To Stop Smoking

I want to stop smoking. I used to smoke in high school and then got pregnant and stopped cold turkey without any problems, then 7 years ago I started smoking again (long story) but started smoking again due to some very stressful events in my life. Anyway, my father in law just passed away about a week ago from a heart attack (but he was also fighting lung cancer that spread to his hip and brain). So now I am really thinking about quiting. My question is how/ what is the best way to quit. I have no health insurance right now, so taking prescription meds is out of the question. I also have high blood pressure.

Nicotine Addiction :: Feeling Ill After Quitting Smoking!

I quit smoking exactly 1 week ago today (though it feels much longer) after smoking for almost 7 years. 

For the past month and a half, I have had shortness of breath, which came on suddenly. I went to Urgent Care for it, and the doctor, after listening to me breath/listening to my heart, said "everything sounds good", and she said my shortness of breath is due to the fact that I have severe anxiety/panic disorder and a sinus infection. That was in the beginning of February... A couple weeks ago, my best friend's mom (who has been an ER nurse for over 20 years) listened to me breath, took my pulse/blood pressure, and she, too, said my lungs sounded "perfect", and my other vitals were good as well.
However... here I am, late March, and I still experience shortness of breath (though it has gotten somewhat better). 
Like I said, it's only been a week since I quit smoking (which I did BECAUSE I felt it might be why I was having shortness of breath), and the first couple of days? I felt great!

Now, I feel awful. I feel like I am dying. My depression has gotten much worse, my anxiety is acting up, I feel "empty" both mentally and emotionally... I have HA (health anxiety) and I fear I might have cancer, or COPD, or some such thing. 

Also, physically I just feel completely drained. I feel weak all the time, exhausted, sluggish, my heartbeat feels weak (to me), etc... I have difficulty thinking clearly, my concentration is horrible... 

But mainly what bothers me is how weak I feel... Sometimes I feel so weak that I am SURE I am dying. I lay there and think, "this is it, I am dying". It's absolutely terrifying! 

I use a nicotine patch, and it DOES seem to help when I have it on, but it only helps so much...

Is this all normal? Before I quit this past week, I had been quitting on and off for a couple months, but my "quitting" would only last 2-3 days. This is the longest I have quit smoking.

I just feel something must be terribly wrong with me... Could this all be just because I quit smoking? No one ever tells you what to REALLY expect when you quit...

Nicotine Addiction :: Hypnosis Helped Me To Stop Smoking

I used to smoke a lot. I won’t exaggerate if I say that I smoked almost 2 packs of cigarettes daily. My friend got me into quitting smoking. At the end I agreed to try with hypnosis. And I must admit that a hypnotist helped me to stop smoking. Are there any similar people here?

Asthma :: I've Quit Smoking

Well I'm 21, coming 22.

Quit smoking after doing it for 6 years and 2 months!  

Last cigarette 52 hours ago and I'm NOT going back!! I've been using the eCig - they're brilliant.

But I'm so worried - could my asthma have progressed into COPD?! Sometimes when walking vigorously, I get tight chested, but it goes away by itself.. I think I've always had that?

My lung capacity hasn't changed (yes, I actually measured it all those years ago when I started).  

Reading about COPD is what made me give up.  Basically, is smoking for 6 years long enough to change my asthma into COPD? 

* Smoked 10-15 a day for first 2-3 years, then 20 a day the past 3 years roughly

* Used reliever inhaler 2x per day during that time

* Since stopping smoking, I've only used my reliever in the morning

* Have a very dry cough with tiny amounts of phlegm - when smoking had more phlegm!

NEED To Quit Smoking - Too Scared And Too Weak

But I don't know how! I am soooo bored with my life, I only work part time, I have nothing to do half the time and I smoke and smoke and smoke just to pass the time away. I constantly think about smoking, I smoke to do everything, I smoke driving and I smoke before I go for a run and when I get back! I smoke all day and all night long, without stopping for more than an hour. if I go more than an hour, I get nasty, snippy, grouchy and miserable. I can't be around anyone else if I have no cigs and if I can't smoke somewhere, I am just too miserable. I don't know how to quit, I keep saying, this is my last pack and then the next day comes, I have nothing to smoke, so I go buy some by 10am. I am weak and lazy minded and undisciplined. I can't cut down and I can't go cold turkey. I can't take the patches, I have nightmares from them, I can't chew the gum, I have crowns and I had no success with the nicotrol inhaler. I have electronic cigarettes that I used when i'm in public and can't smoke but never tried just using them and not buying a pack of real ones. I'm too scared and too weak.

Hypnosis To Quit Smoking Works?

So my friend has heard about a guy who gave up smoking after single visit to a doctor. He said that he was hypnotized and when he woke up he felt like he can't smoke anymore. I am really puzzled by this. I think its just a rip off. I don't know, it sounds too good and to easy to be true. Could it be?
Has anyone heard of anyone else getting hypnosis to  help prevent smoking? Maybe its just a placebo effect, i mean you already know that you should quit smoking after the hypnosis and maybe that's why he felt like he does not want to smoke anymore. That and the fact that he paid for that session.

What are your thoughts?

Cannabis Addiction :: Why Should A Successful Person Quit Smoking Pot?

I'm a 30 year old single guy. According to social criteria I'm a successful person. I have a PhD degree in engineering from a university which is always in top 30 in the world. I started my professional job 20 months ago and during this period I have got two promotions and now I'm a manager. I have lots of friends and people enjoy being around me. I have a very good relationship with my parent and sister. I speak 3 languages and now working on the 4th one. I have traveled a lot and can socialize with anyone from any country on any subject. Financially I'm doing OK but not amazing. I work out 3 times a week and have a athletic body. I'm very energetic and I have told that I'm hyperactive.

I started smoking pot when I was 26 and since then I've been smoking from once to 4 times a week. The weed has really changed my life because since I have been a smoker, my brains works much better and I'm much more concentrated. I can solve more complicated problems and understand engineering facts much better. When I'm high, I always come up with brilliant ideas which motivates me and drives me in life. I'm more artistic when I'm high and enjoy the music to the end.

The only down part of my life is that I haven't had a girlfriend past 3 years. I have dated lots lots of girls but find them either ugly or not bright.
Since 6 months ago I came up with the idea of quitting smoking weed but I'm unable to do that. I have no good reason or no motivation of doing it. I think maybe by being high in past 4 years I have built a fantasy world that not most of the people can understand and enter and that's why I don't have a girlfriend.

Today I came up with the idea of going to a rehab center but then I though if I don't convince myself that I have to quick, if I don't have enough reasons then I will never quit. So I thought to share my story with people and see if they can give me some reasons to quit.
