Long term ex smoker cravings

    Iv been off cigarettes for a year now but still get intense cravings when I see someone smoking or smell smoke or if I'm stressed out. I haven't been using any nicotine products or any e cigarettes or anything as I think it's a slippery slope and could make it worse. How do long term ex smokers deal with cravings without nicotine?


  • Same here, I am happy with my ecig though did you try getting one?

  • like that during stressed periods I get intense cravings too I just keep thinking Of one will do no harm but I think back to all the ones that I used to have and those led to boxes. Everytime I gave up was harder and harder so I jus keep saying I don't smoke I don't need them... I try to consider that I'm still addicted to nicotine so it helps me to think this way when I crave. Cold turkey was my only way and I'm a year and a half now Off them the longest time since I started as a foolish 13 year old.. Best of luck hopefully you'll find your way of dealing with your cravings...
