So after 43 years of smoking, I had never had any luck stopping. I decided one day, while coughing due to pneumonia, that it was time to stop for good.
My 25 year old son was coming to stay with me for a while and I did not want to have him smelling that smoke as he did not smoke himself.
So I stopped, just like that, I had my resolve to stop for good and just did it.
I have my moments that I want a cigarette, but those pass rapidly and I remember that I can actually breath now! I smell things and taste things again, I do not get winded climbing the stairs, it feels great!
My house does not smell, my chlothes do not smell, I did not use a patch, I had a bad experience with chantix, so I did it cold turkey and I am on day 72 now, never going back.
I wish you all the best of luck, keep trying, keep going and remember, every day is a new day!
