    Hi Vinnie. You should breathe easier in just a few days of quitting smoking. You can quit. BELIEVE IT.

    Start by setting a quit date and reading everything you can about nicotine and smoking. Make sure you read our stories and know you will get sound advice and a lot of caring and support. You are not alone. I just responded to another new member, so be sure to read all the postings and comments.
    Even after quitting, forums i think are a reminder of so far we have come. You will never regret quitting smoking and you have yet to learn of all the benefits of being a happy non-smoker.

    Knowledge is power.

    Welcome Vinnie, Our health is important and is one good reason to give up for good I would say, do not let it progress any further.

    As mentioned we are all here to support you in any way and I would guess you are in touch with your Doctor too, it is the mental practice that needs to be overcome perhaps more than the cigarettes themselves, and you can help yourself by reading other posts and staying close to this forum, there are a lot of newer ones to help you through too.

    Vinnie,
    remember your health condition at the early stages and compare it with your condition now. Now take the amount of time it took you to get here and voila - you can foresee your future. What are you going to do next is entirely on you. You can stop and feel really unpleasant for a week then start to feel better one day at a time or you can continue to smoke and feel worse and worse until your health collapses. It's not gonna be easy whatever you choose, but the first option has many benefits down the road. The latter has none.
