My Quit:
I have smoked since I was 14. I am 32 now. This is not my first quit, but this time it has to stick. I had a stroke on 1-31-07 and my docs say the only reason is because I smoke. The only excuse I have for smoking is that it is my only "vice" and I didn't want to give it up, but now I am paralyzed on the left side of my body. Looking at it now, I have 4 kids that I want to see grow up.

Another stroke would likely kill me and I don't want my kids' memory of me to be Mom sitting in her wheelchair smoking. I have finally realized that it is so not worth it, trying to get out of bed everyday, and falling because I can't stand on my own, just to go to my desk for a smoke...

Advice:
Make sure you're doing it for yourself or it won't work
