    Quitting smoking was one of the SINGLE BEST things I ever did. I quit over ten years ago now. I began when I was in college to "calm my nerves" during exams.

    Find a way and do it. Cold turkey worked for me and GOOD LUCK!

    I have quit more than once and I went back.....nicotine is so strong...but when we get off it, don't we ALL ask ourselves: What was I thinking? I hate nicotine, but I am addicted. A horrible addiction.

    I'm another who quit cold turkey. See your family doctor if you have to. He can help.

    As for the dark 'groin,' that's perfectly normal and is determined by such things as ethnicity and inherited gene traits.

    My wife says that the only way a person will be able to quit is if they have a desire to quit that is bigger than the desire to smoke.

    i would see your primary care physician.....although the dark groin can be nothing if you have always had it, it can also mean something bad if it just occurred......A possibility is acanthosis nigricans which is a darknening of the skin that can occur with new onset diabetes, and even gastrointestinal cancer

    Don't know about the groin coloration, but I do know that quitting smoking, though difficult, can be a measure of your will power. I smoked heavily for more than ten years before realizing that I needed to quit. I selected a Quit Day on which I threw away my cigarettes and abruptly quit. The first few days were difficult, but since then I have had little desire to return to bad breath, morning hacking, and not being addicted. I doubt I would have been as successful with the patch because I like a challenge and didn't want to rely on an external support to accomplish something. Cold turkey, at least to me, was the only way to go. Good luck!

    Yes....QUIT! I knocked the habit almost 20 years ago. Besides improving my life span, think of all the money I have saved. Cigarettes now about $3 a pack?
    Consider a carton a week app. $30. Monthly that would be app. $120.
    Yearly? You figure it out and good luck to those considering quitting.

    I stopped 25 yrs ago, one of the best things I ever did.
    It was the 3rd attempt to stop, before I lasted 6 months
    or so.
    As an earlier post said if the urge to quit is greater than the urge
    to smoke then you WILL stop.
    Sounds harsh I know but thats all there is to it.

    Here in the UK its about £5 a pack of 20, I guess that will
    be around the $9 a pack!!

    Good luck, you CAN do it.

    Exact same thing for me, Stronzo.

    Did it just to relax when I was stressed, Decided it was time to stop, and did. I know it isn't that easy for most, but to be fair, I never really was into it. Maybe that is why I quit easily.

    jeff-

    Once I'm "done" with something generally I have a goodly amount of resolve. I really didn't have a difficult time stopping. I know many do. So I would never diminish that struggle.

    A doctor once told me that the addiction to nicotine is second only or perhaps on a par with heroine. Don't know how factual it is.

    Your Doctor makes me smile. :rolleyes:

    I can't imagine smoking or alcohol compares to heroin, in which ONE injection/snort/however else you take it, CAN (but not always) leave you addicted and experiencing symptoms of withdrawl.

    But, you are correct. It is a struggle, and I still think about it on occasion. I just dont' want to spend 10$ on a pack of smokes anymore.:rolleyes:

    Thanks for all your support guy!!!!!!!!! I really appreciated your thought. Im just 21 and this is my 8/9 years. I did really slow down the last 3/4 years. I used to do 3 packs and then to 2 packs and now 1 pack a day or less. Its easy to cut down from 3 packs to 1 pack but going less than half a pack is nearly impossible.

    I tried it with my ex girlfirend. We both quit but when thing started to fall apart it came back. With all that stress I'm having I cant really stop. The longest I ever done was 1 1/2 week.

    Thanks Again

    I smoked for twenty five years. I quit at 40. The best motivation for me
    was VANITY !!! How many older men look good smoking?
    How does their face look?
    How does their teeth look?

    How will they look in 10 years iff they continue to smoke?
    That along with the patch worked for me.

    Good Luck !
