My Quit:
I am married with three boys, all grown, and had smoked 2 1/2 packs for approximately 41 years and 1/2 pack for 3 years. I wanted to quit but couldn't stop those 10 a day. On 4-10-14 I couldn't breathe and was taken to the Hospital. They found I was in Arial Fibrillation instead of Sinus. I quit smoking that day and am still smoke free. I am much better now with medicines and probably owe my future health to that scare. Thankfully I didn't have COPD so maybe smoking only ultralights and cutting down had saved my lungs. I am very grateful that I was given a second chance at a healthier life and the freedom of a nonsmoker.

Advice:
Don't let fear be the reason you don't quit or stay quit. I was afraid of failing and I know now you can't succeed or fail if you don't try.

Frequently Asked Question
Q: Do I face fewer health risks as a cigar smoker? answer
Quitticism
HTBC
Hide The Body Committee- A secretive group whose function would be (if it existed, which it doesn't) to clean up after the mayhem created by frustrated Quitters. Many of our members claim to have not belonged to the HTBC (not that it ever existed). But if it ever DID exist and if Qmembers WERE ever in it, the HTBC would only disappear the messes of other Quitters- never would it initiate destruction on its own. If it ever existed in the first place. Which we're not saying it does. Which, of course, it doesn't. See also: Celery is Under the Left Rear Tire.

photoHave a plan; be committed and remind yourself WHY you are quitting; don't give up - it WILL be worth it.
