I must have tried to quit smoking dozens of times. I never thought that I would be doing as well as I am right now. I have tried almost every kind of medication out there but nothing seemed to work. When it came down to the gum or the patch it never did the job. As much as I wanted to quit I was still feeding into my nicotine addiction. So as my 33rd birthday approached I said to myself enough is enough. I was spending up to $70 a week on smokes. I found myself cutting back on things I needed for the home just to buy a pack. But it has been 2 weeks cold turkey and so far I am proud of myself and so are my family and friends. I know in my heart I can do this.
