I'm 18 and I have been smoking since I was 12 years old. I started because I thought it would make me look older and make me feel more important. . . doing something I knew was wrong. I never thought about the consequences that would come of it. I didn't know I was addicted until I was already addicted. I hid it from my mom until I was 16 and will never forget the look of disappointment on her face when she finally figured it out.
I decided to quit when I couldn't excerice or walk up stairs without being out of breath within a very short time. I've haven't smoked for 3 days now and it seems like it's been the longest three days of my life but I'm happy and excited to finally be smoke free!
