I quit about six years ago...march 15 was six years. I decided to quit after watching my mom inhale her oxygen just so she could take a drag off a
It took me almost two weeks of cutting down gradually then the last few days I wore a patch and after three or four days of that nothing. Not a drag
since but i'm too prideful for that and I knew it. After I put my last cigarette out I said to everyone that I will never smoke again and because I
said it I had to follow through...but that's me. So cravings sucked but I dealt with it. The cravings lasted for two years and when they came they
were strong, now maybe twice a year I get them and they really don't bother me.
I was a Marlboro red smoker, I loved smoking too but I decide I like living more.
A few months after I quit my mom died gasping for breath, no one should die that way...she was only 48. You can quit if you truly want to. Take back
your life before it's taken from you.
Pick a plan and follow through with it...whether it's cut down slowly till nothing then never again, or to cold turkey it. Tai-Chi can work wonders
for your stress and anxiety during the really hard cravings. So can a good long jog.
