Wanna Quit

Ok I have been smoking for some yrs now. I want to quit. I have tried the patch and the gum. Isnt there a new shot out for helping people quit? If you use to smoke how did you quit what helped you the most? My mom said she quit cold turkey 16 years ago. She also says she still gets a craving for it but can't smoke since she has infazema (sp) and COPD. She is almost to the stage to be on oxygen. I don't want to be 50 and be on oxygen.

  • Apparently smoking is a horrible habit for some to get over. My Mom died of these same complications you're talking about, 8 years ago. It's a horrible and slow suffocation. I'm one of 8 kids and for some odd reason, the only once that never smoked. Even watching this horror never gave my siblings the incentive, or ease, to quit.

  • Ask your doctor if they can prescribe you something to take to help you quit.
    you can also try the stop smoking hotline for tips on how to quit
    sometimes it is just the matter of changing habits.
