I'm new to this, but I thought that after 43 day without smoking I needed to try something to keep me going. I'm 60 years old and have smoked since conception, since my mother smoked during pregnancy, and my dad smoked all the while I was going up. I took my 1st puff (not second hand) at age 6. Started smoking everyday at the rate of a pack a day when I was 16. I have tried to quit many time thru the years, but always had to have that one at a moment of weakness.
This time will be different! what helped me was turning 60. I looked on line at a longevity calculator, and found that I could keep smoking and live another 10 years, or quit smoking and maybe live another 25. would be nice to meet my grandchildren! I just have to remember that with any addition, just one, is one too many. It's getting easier with everyday that passes, but there are times that I could die for just one, and I guess that's what I would be doing!
Wish me luck, John W
