If you've kicked a habit, what method helped you succeed in kicking it?

I recently gave up smoking cigarettes. Cold turkey work for me but it took several attempts.

It was simple for me to quit smoking. Firstly, I had to want to quit. That was key.
When I came down with a really bad cold (coughing, sick in bed, etc) I couldn't smoke - and this situation lasted the better part of a week which was long enough to help me quit.

Yup... I get that the mindset has to be in place, first. Making several attempts and failing, I finally got serious about it and won it over for 10 years.

I've not smoked since Feb 8, 2005 (which would've been my mother's 100th birthday)

Going cold-turkey (from smoking). It was either that or have a cardiac arrest in a surgery car park, get the copious amounts of opiate based pain killers to replace the nicotine addiction, and then kick the hard stuff.

I used the patch... that took several attempts as well; that lasted for 10 years. I hated depending on anything getting me through the day.

Congratulations for your persistence and ultimate success! :D
