- I am new to this website so not yet sure how to navigate. I stopped smoking on New Years Eve and am now on day 10. I had quit before for 10 years and went back 7 years ago. Since then I have stopped and started again multiple times. So, here is my question. Where can I find help to stay off long term? I seem to have strong urges to go back to smoking around 1 month and 3 months. 2 years ago I made it 9 months and went back while at a social event. I want to stay off for good this time.
