This is an interesting thread. I quit in May and haven't coughed much at at all. I smoked organic cigs and probably about 1/2 pack a day til toward the end when I really ramped it up and made myself sick on them. I think that helped make it easier to quit. I still want one Bad when stressed/upset but it really isn't the smoke I want it is the effect. I fight it off and get over that hump and am okay again. It will be worth it!!!! Good luck to your son L4L, tell him not to give up! yes

Thanks Lotus, he is doing well with it. He has had several major stress events since he started not smoking. Normally, he'd just go back to smoking but this time he has not. wave And thumbsup to you.

For some of the more stressful times, I pretend smoke. Deep inhales of air. Calms you down.

I haven't had to quit smoking but I have gone thru seminars about on-the-job stress reduction. The only 2 things that stayed with me are the deep breathing one you mentioned OldBroad and the one about visualizing something that makes you happy.

I had to think for a moment about what always put a smile on my face and then I remembered the comedian Gallagher. It just gave me so much pleasure when he would take a big old mallet and pound a watermelon into smithereens. grin Must have been the warrior within me. laugh
