I am 26. Have smoked since turning 18, knew I wanted to smoke since I was 12, but waited until it was legal, never even tried before 18th b-day. I've tried quitting before, but I never lasted a day. I cry just thinking about never smoking again. I love the smell of it, both when I do it and when it's been a while and I smell it on someone else, I love the taste, the feel of it in my lungs. I honestly love smoking. But, it's costing $200/month for both of us. I go outside to smoke on the porch. I'm terrified of wasps and bees, and our porch is home to several big wood bees. But, I still stand w/them and smoke. I'll go out in the rain, snow, heatwave, storm, I don't care, I HAVE to have that cigarette. I smoke 1 pack a day. I've tried the gum, patch, and cold turkey. Heard bad things about the pill that makes you quit. What else is there? Please, only answer if you've successfully quit, no bashing about the dangers of smoking.

I smoked a pack a day for 15 years...what worked for me was the Commit Lozenges...they were very gross but I only needed to use them for a month. Quitting isn't easy but so worth it. I have been smoke free for 6 years....good luck to you!!
