I am quitting smoking

I am 18 years old and have been smoking since I was 12. I smoked my last one today and am ready to begin quit smoking. I have bought a bucket full of bubble gum and have a list in my pocket of why I am quitting smoking.

I suspect I may have throat cancer although I doubt it. I will have a doctor look at it just to make sure.

Wish me luck!

Re: I am quitting smoking

You can do this, at 18 you have realized what you want.Be strong and remember after 3 days the nicotine is out of your system.The rest is just cravings.

Re: I am quitting smoking

congrats on your quit! i wish i was that smart at your age! i am 57 and just quit 2 wks ago, which had done alot of damage to my lungs. i have been short breathed, respiratory problems and on inhalers for yrs now. really am afraid to ever be on oxygen! by quitting now, you can look forward to a healthy repiratory future. i found that lolipops and the hard plastic coffee stirrers are great to keep yourself from feeling fidgetty.......bevann

Re: I am quitting smoking

Hey LilCapone, are you using anything to help you quit other than gum? If not I hope it works better for you than when I tried it. Why do you think you have throat cancer? Definitely see a doctor if you are having trouble swallowing or breathing.

To Bevann26- I've got a grandma on oxygen and it's a nightmare to take her out of the house. Good thing you quit when you did!

Re: I am quitting smoking

I thought i had throat cancer because my throat hurt. It turns out it is just a infection.
