I used to smoke a pack of Marlboro Lights a day. Haven't had one since August of 2012. Chantix works.

Did the same and couldn’t agree more.

I was a social smoker in college until I was smoking most days. Made the decision to stop cold turkey. Easiest thing in the world. I don’t understand smoking addiction. Just make the decision

My Dad made that decision at age 40 in one day and put the money he would have spent on cigarettes in the bank. It wasn’t like he didn’t have the desire to smoke anymore he just made the choice not to smoke.

Go visit my fathers grave. He died to soon. He left behind a young wife and 3 young daughters. There is not a day that I don’t miss him. Even after all these years, Father’s Day is tough. Better yet go to a cancer unit and talk to a patient or the family. Best of luck to you.

Just say no. You can do it!

Turn to meditation or an accountability partner that can chat when you feel the urge to smoke.
