I quit over 3 weeks ago...mostly because my mother in law just passed away from a lot of different problems, but mostly lung problems...she practically drowned to death, awake and right in front of my husband...it had to of been the worst way to die...then after reading several smoking sessation techniques, I realized that the later stages of emphazima are much like gasping for air and the feeling of drowning! Then, ironically, I got sick with bronchitis, and didn't even want to smoke...so I put them down three weeks ago, and never picked them back up, and haven't been sick for two weeks now. My breathing is so much better, my senses are so much more broader! I just love it...I will not pick up another cancer stick for as long as I live!!! Good luck to you! It's hard. I still have cravings, and have even gained about 5 pounds because of eating so much peppermint and other hard candies!!! But it'll be worth it...I'll be able to do something about my weight gain. Not worried about that.
