Each time you smoke, you are:-
1. Literally burning a part of your hard earned money
2. Feeding dangerous chemicals to your body
3. Going away from lofe with each puff
4. increasing the risk of unhealthy death
i believe none of the above is warranted in a sane person's life
I was diagnosed of Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) in 2012 at the age of 63. I had been a heavy smoker, my symptoms started out with dry cough and shortness of breath, i ended up in the hospital, on a ventilator.

Drink lots of fruit smoothies - I am 33 days quite after 40 years and noticed that I get so thirsty all the time. So I have been drinking losts of fruite smoothies and boy are they good.

And probably carry them when I'm done with the patch for awhile, just in case. I'...

I was putting myself to bed early each night. Then I would wake up in the middle of the night. I figured if I took up smoking because of lack of sleep I would never be able to stop. Lately I have slept...

Today is day 2, see whether I can succeed this time.
I am using a tea spoon of cream of tartar in a glass of fresh juice, morning and afternoon, meant to rid of any nicotine cravings.

After 25 Years and multiple times of trying to quit - I think I'm done with Cigarettes.
I tried everything to quit then a friend of mine introduced me to Pod Type E-Cigarettes - These were the small Pod type called Juul.
So I got on line and bought a couple with 5% Nicotine.

After 3 months I have recently given these away and now oc...
