Trying to quit Smoking - November 26th 2014, 08:28 PM

So i've been smoking for 3 years now its not that long. i play professional soccer at college and recently i've been feeling a lot more tired than i usually do so i'm trying to quit smoking but it's not that easy.

Anyone who tried it before and if not any advice on how to fight it.

I had this same problem for ages. You can always talk to your doctor about it. It's not like they'll tell the team if thats a concern. There are many medications that reduce the urge to smoke. I found them very effective. You can also try electronic cigarettes and nicotine gum. I didnt have success with those but i know people who have. You can also wean yourself off, and buy smokes with lower nicotine content, like ultra lights. With a little digging on google there are a myriad of ways. You can always pm me, I'd be more than happy to help you organize a plan.

How can man die better? Than facing fearful odds, for the ashes of his father, in the temple of his gods.

I'm trying to quit myself right now. I'm using e cigs and I'm down from a pack a day to three cigarettes a day in just under two weeks. If you use e cigs to quit, make sure you get the right strength otherwise it won't work. I'm using 48 mg strength. That's 48℅ nicotine and is the strongest on the market.
