I am 43 years old. I started smoking when I was 16. Both of my parents smoked all of my life. When people ask me how long I have been a smoker, I used to say, "Since conception."
9 months ago today, I finally quit for what I believe to be the very last time! I love being a non smoker. Love it! I love not buying cigarettes (I don't even know how much they cost anymore). I love not smelling terrible when I walk past people at work. I love that my daughter is so proud of me. I love that I can breath again! I joined a gym 2 weeks after I quit smoking so I never had to go up a size in pants thank goodness.
I found the patch an amazing tool! I could not have done it with out the great jokes from QuitNnet. I also love the certificates! I print and hang them proudly.
