I am 23 years old and i was a smoker for 12 years - currently on my 13th day smoke free using nicabate patches. I have had depression and generalized anxiety for 12 -13 years now which is one of the reasons i want to quit for good. My top reason would be to half my chances of getting a disease - in just the past year i have had 4 people be diagnosed with some forum of cancer, including operations...

I am not thin skinned. I appreciate what you are trying to say, but when what I was trying to portray, is something that is valid and pertaining to this particular issue ie smoking and the detriment of doing so, I considered it pertinent to my point. The fact that iCanQuit wanted me to water down my post, although it contained no offensive language, had information for which I ...

To rid myself of this demon called nicotine addiction, and build my self-esteem via more conscious and positive lifestyle decisions.
Just started my quit journey. Just got sick of lying to my loved ones about my smoking. Never used to smoke at home, but as soon as I left home and went to work. I would pull over to the side of the highway and and have a smoke with my coffee. I was always able to blame the nature of my job and the company i keep at work on why i would smell when i got home.
