I smoked for 45 years and today I am 6 months without even a puff, I used champex, alberta quits and every smoking aid used by man, I still use the occational gum , but it is better than having a smoke, this week has been stressful for me and I have the urge to smoke , I was sitting in the hospital waiting room when I saw some old fellow in a wheelchair , with a cigarette hanging out of his mouth heading for the exit to have a smoke , it is -33 outside but that did not stop him. when he returned I could hear him hacking all the way to his room. I feel sorry for him , but lost my urge to have a smoke, if I have one I will start again, think I will have a Nicorette gum and think about how nice it is to be 6 months smoke free.
