I have smoked for 50 years and have recently retired and am unable to take part time work so I don't have any money for anything extra so I have to quit smoking. My granddaughter also just quit and I don't want to let her down. I am having a hard time am on the patch but it is a generic brand so don't know how good it is but I had quit for 8 days and couldn't stand it any more so bought a pack. I just finished it and am trying again. Hope it works this time
