I tried smoking at 13 and never stopped, not even when I was pregnant.
I always said I would quit before I was thirty. Around age 33 I had a huge awakening of my soul and realized that I wanted to live!! I knew health and long life were not going to be mine if I continued to smoke.
I quit the first time for 4 1/2 yrs, with the patch. It was one of the hardest things I'd ever done. You should have seen the way I carried on, crying and everything like I had lost my best friend. But I got through it. Then, because of stress in my life, I started smoking again. How stupid could I be?
So, here I am 2 1/2 yrs later. Easier this time because I knew what to expect and also because I have the Q this time around.

It gets easier and easier with time. Just don't ever give in to that urge to try 'just one'. You know you can't!!
