What have you tried?: A formal program helps keep you motivated and gives you lots of emotional support. Nicotine replacement therapy (patches, gum, lozenges) reduces withdrawal and should be tapered over 3 months or so. Prescribed medications like Chantix and zyban (bupropion) reduce both craving and withdrawal symptoms. Multiple attempts to quit are the rule, not the exception. Keep trying and you will succeed! ...Read more

Distract yourself: You were a light smoker, but could still be dependent on nicotine. Plus the daily routine of having a cigarette can be habit-forming - a psychological way to keep you doing it. The key is to teach yourself to get through the day. Cravings can be like hunger pains - wait awhile and they go away! so, make a list of things you can do instead of smoke. If it's hard, nicotine gum or lozenge can help. ...Read more

Does smoking cigarettes improve your focus and memory? Btw i'm a non smoker and an aspiring architect. All architects smoke :p

Does smoking cigarettes improve your focus and memory? Btw i'm a non smoker and an aspiring architect. All architects smoke :p

No, but . . .: Long ago, even the cancer doctors smoked. It's just an addiction, so won't improve focus, memory, or anything else. But, once a person is addicted, his cravings will bother him constantly, until he gets his next smoke. That is why the addicted smokers need to smoke to bring their focus back up to normal (they've messed themselves up by getting addicted). One avoids that problem by never smoking. ...Read more

Cold turkey.: As far as quitting without any nicotine replacement, the cold turkey method is great. But plan it ahead of time. Pick a quit date in advance, maybe a meaningful date like a birthday or holiday, and gather people who are aware of your attempt that you can call upon for moral support if you start to falter. Good luck!! You smoke so little, should be pretty straight forward. ...Read more
