Welcome. I found long term support gave me the most success. The quit itself is physically just 3 days, but the psychological addiction has to be extinguished over a long period of time.
I used to quit, but couldn't live quit long term. Then I joined the fellowship of NicA (like AA). I am proud to say that I have practiced so many of the tools this program offers that I'm still a member of Nicotine Anonymous, years and years later. The in person meetings are best, and going to more than one meeting a week is recommended, but how you work your program is up to you. There are also bridge phone meetings, and VONR meetings online. You can look up all this information on either my regional website or the national website. (Mine is easier to navigate at first.) You will ultimately feel so much better being nicotine free, you cannot imagine it. Just remember that we can do together what we cannot do alone. Keep coming back; it works when we work it.

I'm 24 and on January 1st I will be giving up smoking for good. I've been smoking almost every day since I was 13 (bad, I know!) so I know this is going to be difficult but appreciate any support and tips you guys can offer! My partner is giving up with me though so we can help eachother, but I would love to know peoples best tips for getting over the cravings!
