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 and things removed. I've known 2 people that lost their lives because of it as well. Yesterday i was told a family friend is having issues with his kidneys and is close to renal failure, this man doesn't smoke. I'm terrified of what the outcomes will be if i continue to ignore the health issues that come with lighting up a cigarette which is what keeps me going. I hope to have a family one day and i can't do that if i'm not around.
