Those who have quit will tell you that quitting smoking is actually easy.
The following is a personal experience from Anton, an ex-smoker.
I know that if you’re reading this post, then you’ve tried to get rid of the habit a million times, and maybe you want to quit smoking easily. You may have the feeling that your plans to survive getting rid of your nicotine addiction will fall through, and you’ll be a smoker until the end of your days. One who perseveres does not give up on his decisions easily and takes up the matter seriously — even in those moments when you feel that such an unknown and “unattainable” victory is not worth the suffering. You know exactly what you want to quit, because you would not be here right now. You will have your good days and bad days; everyone who has ever had to experience pain to get rid of nicotine addiction has had them as well — me included. Good days will show that, indeed, it is easy to quit smoking, and hard days mean you just have to wait for a good day.
