Are you wondering how to quit cigarette smoking? That must mean you are ready to kick the habit.
Good for you.
I myself was asking that same question a few years back.
I had been a heavy smoker for many years and tried to stop smoking countless times.
The one thing I did right was that I kept trying.
I was persistent in my attempt to stop smoking cigarettes.
I was tired of feeling physically bad, tired of wasting my money, tired of smelling like a cigarette, tired of everything that had to do with smoking.
In my journey to become smoke free I tried most of the traditional methods to quit my smoking habit.
You have heard of them; the patch, nicotine gum and pills, and I tried quitting cold turkey numerous times.
These methods work for a lot of people but they can get expensive in the case of the patch and nicotine replacement gum or pills.
There are also several alternative methods available to quit smoking.
If you have tried to quit smoking using one of the above traditional methods, or if you want to try something a little different (and possibly more economical) here are some alternative methods too quit smoking you may want to give a try.
