I smoked since i was 15, a pack a day. Everybody around me smoked and that's pretty normal since I live in Croatia. I thought I'll never quit, maybe only during pregnancy (I'm 25 now). My boyfriend hated my smoking since he is a non-smoker, and we faught a lot. After getting my Master's degree I moved back to my hometown. Suddenly everybody in my surroundings were non-smokers and I felt really silly having the need to go outside on a reeeeally cold days just to smoke. I used that opportunity to ditch the cigarettes and I can say it's a real pleasure to be finally free. I hated the lying about going to the store just to smoke one or two cigarettes on the way or having to smoke in front of all the non-smokers who hated me for my bad habit. I'm only 11 days smoke-free but I hope I'll endure a lifetime. I'm only afraid I could relapse while drinking coffee with my friends who smoke. For now, I try to avoid those situations, but other than that, I have no physical symptoms.
