How to quit smoking

200+ additional stop smoking videos


Welcome to WhyQuit, a totally free nicotine dependency recovery forum that declines donations and is staffed by volunteer cessation educators. We hate to be the bearer of bad news but it's time someone leveled with you. If the only tactic you employ this year is to make a New Year's resolution to quit smoking, then your 2016 resolution's odds of success are about 1 in 17.  Yes, 93.8% odds of failure.

Most smokers have little difficulty seeing alcoholism as a mental illness. What's hard to accept is that chemical dependency upon smoking nicotine is a mental illness too. Despite being accompanied by alertness instead of intoxication, numbness, euphoria or a racing sensation, the wanting you'll feel for that next fix flows from the same brain dopamine pathways as the wanting felt by the alcoholic, heroin, cocaine or methamphetamine addict. Accepting who we are can be the most liberating moment of our lives.

The common thread in all of the below quitter messages is that knowledge became power, that we can easily and quickly become more dependency recovery savvy than our addiction is strong. No greater willpower than yours, they each once stood exactly where you stand now, with their next puff of toxins that included up to 81 cancer causing chemicals damaging and destroying additional cells, tissues and neurons. The most critical lesson they share is:

"The Law of Addiction"

Why? Because they appreciate that failure to master it is the primary reason why half of adult smokers already know the cause of death that'll be printed on their death certificates (smoking), certificates scheduled to be issued an average of 14 years early.

We invite you to explore WhyQuit, home to the largest collection of totally free stop smoking videos, articles, and ebooks. Discover how to minimize or even eliminate many common withdrawal symptoms. Allow understanding to lessen or destroy needless anxiety generating fears. Contrary to the message likely now playing inside your chemically enslaved mind, everything done while under nicotine's influence can be done as well or better without it.

Why fear coming home to a day where you'll go the entire day without once wanting to smoke nicotine? Your blood can become 100% nicotine-free and you can move beyond peak withdrawal within 72 hours of ending all use. Why fear feeling your healing? Embrace recovery don't fear it! Yes you can!
