Commit lozenges worked well for me. They get you past the first few days and then you can have more strength and will power to quit because you're not going crazy from withdrawal.

Hey Dillion. I am so proud of you for facing this early on. I waited and tried to ignore it. I wish I was half the boy/man you are at your age. You can also talk your self through the nervousness. I used to do this to try to get in touch with my feelings to gain control of them.

I really am so proud of you.

Dillion,

There are a lot of things to help you when your in the middle of a craving. One is to take 3 deep breaths. Believe it or not oxygen is an enemy to those of us who smoke. Also, when you feel the need to smoke step away try to find something else to get your mind on. And one last one... wait ... most cravings only last about 20 min's... so wait it out.

Best of luck to you man. And welcome to MS.

James

It takes a lot of willpower, dillon.

I'm going to assume you're talking about cigarettes here.

I started smoking when I was 13, and it took me over 15 years to give it up. One thing to keep in mind is that one of the side effects of nicotine withdrawl is nervousness.

The next time you crave a cigarette, go for a walk instead. You already know that you crave a cigarette when you are nervous. Now, it is time to find out why you are nervous. Think about that while you're on your walk. Whatever it is that makes you nervous is called a trigger, and identifying triggers is a huge part of giving up addictive habits.

Remember that the longer you smoke, the harder it is to give it up.

Good luck.

Bryan
