I am 26 years old and have tried to quit smoking 4 times, with varying levels of success. I got married last year and something inside me just said "it's time".
I quit October 1, 2004 and, unlike previous tries, I did it cold turkey. In the past I used the patch, but I didn't want nicotine in my system anymore. Let me tell you, this was the hardest thing I have ever done. 2 weeks of a lot of anxiety, mood swings and major irratibility. I never want to go through a cold turkey quit again. That is why I will never smoke again.
This website was so helpful, full of support and help.

Don't get discouraged if you slip up. When you are ready, you will succeed. The feeling after you quit is amazing. You feel as if you can accomplish anything.
