Re: Trying to Quit...
the first thing you did right is post on these boards. i am 57 yrs. old and started smoking, like you, at 15. i am now on my third quit in a month, i will not give up!
unless you quit smoking, you will get a smokers cough, short of breath, wheezing to the point of needing inhalers, and then go on to carrying oxygen around with you!
it use to be the cool thing to do when i was 15, it is not cool, cigs are killers leading to a terrible life and dying younger than you should. they smell, making your hair and clothes smell also. as smokers we don't notice the smell, but others do, and it reekes!
please, please give them up right now, you have already done the hard part, which is getting the toxins and nicotine out of your body. now all you need to do is don't dwell on them, they are evil, and you will have control!
a good board to go on is the lung cancer, ck out some of their stories, and see what they are going through. you will feel real sympathy for them and it will help you realize that you don't want to ever go thru that, you have a long, wonderful life ahead of you. please, please live it smoke free!
enjoy the rest of your holiday....bevann
