I'm wishing you good luck and perseverance in quitting. I really enjoyed smoking and thought it was the only way I could relax. Now I haven't had even one puff for more than two and a half years. I still think the cigarettes smell good but have convinced myself they wouldn't taste so good, remembering how they tasted when I first had to be part of "the group".

YES you can quit !!! Please purchase a book called "The Easy Way To Quit Smoking" by Allen Carr. I promise this will change the way you see smoking and your health. This book is not medical statistics or scare tactics ~ it is WONDERFUL !!! The man who wrote it smoked 3 packs a day for 40 years and he quit.

You can do this and I pray that very soon you will feel better and be free from this monster.

Yup. You're alright here.

Hello,
I have been told I have COPD. Surprise, after 40 years of smoking and bronchitis which landed me in the hospital for 5 days. I truly enjoy smoking and I have turned to an e-cig to help, but if turmoil hits, I'm back on the smokes. While I was in the hospital, I think I have come to the conclusion of why I won't quit other than enjoying it but, when I was caught smoking in my room by my mother, she told me she'll make me quit -- she made me smoke a whole pack of cigarettes + she went an grab my grandfather cigar to top it off, all in one sitting. I guess I showed her but lost the battle with this lung disease. I have to quit, hit hard on my e-cigs and it has helped (sometimes) I'm not back to smoking an actual cigarette but I have fallen a few times since I've been released from the hospital and I really don't want to go through that again. Can I say I've quit with the e-cigs, enjoy them and (praying) not to have a regular cigarette? Can I truly give up smoking? Can this defiance run deeper that what I think? I know, hounding me will only make me light up (my family has learned that). Am I alright here?
