I smoked for 21 years and am embarrassed to say that! After several half-quits, I finally "got it" and was able to understand how to quit. Thanks to QuitNet and all the inspiration, encouragement, support and all of the tools to help.
Before you quit, make a list of why you want to. Make another list of what things you will do instead of smoking, your new ways to stay occupied or cope. When you quit- keep your list close by and read often!
