I have been a smoker my whole life. Started at 13 - 14 was addicted for certain by 16. I am 49 now will be 50 in 2 months, and I have never even tried to quit.
About 2 months ago I took Chantix and I went from around 38 smokes a day to as low as 13 in a day. But I never tried to quit. So I stoped taking the med. and 10 days ago started taking it again, and this time I did pick a quit date. Today. So far so good. Many years ago I bought the nicotrol inhaler and I currently have one of those in my mouth. I have also prayed up a storm over this day too.
well done and good luck ,I am also 49 smoked since I was 14 tried at least 8 times to quit but to day is my first day also I am using a patch and try to keep busy the wife thinks its great as I am washing the dishes ha
