As of feb 14 2010, I have not had a cigarette, yay!!!!! Have tried evrything, hypnosis (TWICE) nicotine patches, natural herb patches, aricular ear therapy, cold turkey (Many, many, times) and weaning by cutting down more and more each day, also more times than I can remember.
I finally got so disgusted with myself, I had turned to God and was asking for His help, praying, promising to quit if He'd just help me through it. It has been just truly amazing, and the easiest time I've ever had with attempting to quit smoking. I was really concerned about being left behind when the Rapture occurs, because of me sinning by putting poisens into my body which God gave me to house my Holy Spirit, and the Bible clearly says we are to take care of our bodies, so now when I even think about a cigarette, I also realize that I am not suffering at all, and remind myself that when that trumpet blows I'll be among those I was so afraid would leave me behind. I also feel so much closer to God, I have smoked 41 years. And all I had to do , was ask for help from Him. And now I will be healthier, won't stink, won't have to avoid nonsmoking get togethers. So for all you who have had so much difficulty trying to stop, why don't you give God a try. If He could help me, He can help anyone!!!!

Well done re smoking. Big push down under here to get people off with lots of TV ads and Quitline a free support counselling quit line. Gave extra training to people to help. Know my son involved. Told him his mother was a thirty a day junkie for a while (only that high a couple of years when working in Lesotho in Africa where temptingly cheap...) Took me a while. Used to repeat old joke \"Quitting smoking is easy, I\'ve done it hundreds of times\". So know how hard it has been. Never too late!
