      I quit smoking years ago (cold turkey), because I didn't like the price of cigarettes. About a year later, my mother was diagnosed with throat cancer. She quit cold turkey as well. Unfortunately, there weren't any aids that far back to help people quit smoking. I think you just need to try every solution out there, but mostly you have to want to quit. My brother was diagnosed with throat cancer a year ago and quit last fall and started again a couple of months ago. He used Chantix, and plans to try it again as soon as he retires.

      The day I went into the hospital (before diagnosis) I sneaked a couple of cigarettes into the bathroom. That's how addicted I was. Once I got the diagnosis of pancreatic cancer, I made up my mind to stop. They gave me patches in the hospital but by the time I left I didn't need them. I had made up my mind. Too bad it was this that made me quit because I've heard that smoking can be one of the triggers of PC. I never thought I'd be without a cigarette but here I am, and my husband still smokes, which doesn't make it easier, but no- no no- no- way would I go back to smoking.

      Hi,I tried many,many times to quit! It was probably one of the hardest things I have ever done but I finally achieved it thru hypnosis.
