I'm a Smoker, and I want to quit.

  • I'm a smoker and i'm in the position to quit. Is it okay to quit the same time i'm doing my ignite phase? Or would that be too much stress for the body. Any suggestions??

    First of all, congratulations on trying to quit!

    Have you thought of switching to an e-cigarette?

    While the jury is still out on it medically, it's not likely to be nearly as bad as actually smoking and you can gradually reduce the nicotine concentration to zero. I've read a lot of reports from former smokers about how their breathing has improved along with a host of other benefits. The security guard at my work hasn't touched a regular cigarette in the month since she discovered the electronic option. She was doing half a pack a day before that.

    I just want to encourage you to quit whenever you are mentally and emotionally ready and keep in mind that the withdrawal symptoms you experience are temporary and mean that your body is getting back to learning how to live life without nicotine. I'm quitting too - we can do it!!

    I quit 2 years ago. I concentrated on the quitting and used MILD exercise at first, then increase. I was gentle with my body and my self and focused only on quitting. I gradually increased exercise as the days and weeks passed. I could not have done ignite and cigarette quit at same time. I would have failed at both. Check with doctor, of course, but I say, concentrate on quitting smoking first. That success will lead to others.
