My final advice to you, and to all of those that want to quit smoking is: keep trying different methods (e-cigs, patches, pills, etc.). There is no "magic method" that works for everybody, but the fact that you keep trying to quit will, at some point, "change your mindset" (as someone already mentioned on this thread). And THIS is what really will help you quit the habit.
anyone who doubts the high level of medical care in the USA just hasn't been to the hospital recently. It was nothing like I remembered or imagined it. It was superb.

I am still 2.5 years out from my stroke but continue to get little "gifts" each day as the neurons in my brain re route paths to bypass the stroke damaged sections. The other day I was scratching myself with my weak arm involuntarily and didn't even realize I had an itch.
