I started smoking when I was 16.
By the time I was 18, I was smoking more than a half pack a day.
By the time I was 20, I was smoking a full pack a day.
A year later, my father died of a heart-attack. He was 54.
My uncle and grandfather also both died when they were about 54. They all smoked till they died. Big surprise, right?
Since then (10 years) I tried to quit four times unsuccessfully. Every time I tried to quit I tried alone and failed. The last time I at least tried nicotine replacement, and although it was my best attempt (3 weeks), I still failed.
I realized I needed help and went out and got it from a doctor and the Q and my wife and this time I know I’m not going to fail.
I'm also going to live longer than 54.

Think of quitting as YOUR QUIT, it's the most valuable thing you'll ever own.
