  • I was 14. Quit totally at 21 just before I found out I was pregnant. Good luck to you. :)

  • I started when I was about 21 and quit when I was 30. I used gum and sugar free candy, also. It was really hard and I gained a lot of weight, but it was totally worth it. I smoked a pack a day of Marlboro Lights. Weird thing is, sometimes I dream I have started back smoking and I wake up feeling so guilty! LOL Even after six years still dreaming about cigarettes! But I never crave them, anymore, do you?
