My dad stopped cold turkey after over 40 years of multi-pack a day habit. Quit in the middle of a carton. Sometimes you just have to bite the bullet. His motivation was that his first grandchild was born and he decided that he wanted to be around to see her grow up. She's no a teenager and he never looked back. I know it's hard, but gets better with every day. Good Luck. [ Reply | More ]

Quest cigarettes. They wean you off the nicotine first. By the time you get to Quest 3 - - there is no nictotine so you don't crave them at all. [ Reply | More ]

I quit 202 days ago have saved over $1900 and feel SO good. I actually went to this place out in SI where they do laser accupuncture on your ear. AND a "motivational speech". I made myself available to the speech and it was enough to get me past the first week or so (not sure how much the accupuncture really does)...then it's just 1 day 1 craving at a time. I hated everyone and every thing until about 1 month in, but then it got much easier. [ Reply | More ]

Go buy Allan Carr's E-Z Way to Stop Smoking. I swear by it - I smoked for 16 years and quit just from this book 5 yrs ago. And it really was no sweat. And I haven't wanted to smoke since. [ Reply | More ]

Ditto for Triumph. We bought it for ds when he was about 7 mo old. We went with lighter, because it's a few less pounds to carry on the bus/subway, etc. [ Reply | More ]

the least expensive option (but biggest pita) is rent on days off. I found,though, when I didn't have a car, that it meant I would rarely rent and therefore did less stuff that would involve driving than I otherwise would have. [ Reply | More ]

rent on the days you need it. though in manhattan people rent them for the summer and so many places dont have much inventory. also it can be pricey. if you do it, make sure you reserve it way in advance [ Reply | More ]
