I quit smoking about 15 years ago. I would’t wish smoking on even my worst enemy, I’d rather toast them with Mustard gas or something than put that demon on them.

It all boils down to just wanting to quit in your heart and in your mind. You can’t be half hearted about it at all. If you are, you’ll never do it. I used the patches to help with the cravings. Towards the end, I would duct tape them to my arm to keep it on. I can’t imagine anything being more addictive. I gained some weight, but I tell you, I’d rather be fat than smoke again. The biggest sensation that came back was my ability to smell, it came back with a vengance. Even after 15 years I have momentary flashes about wanting to smoke, but they’re gone just as quick as they come. I’ll be rooting for you smokers trying to quit. A 5 lb back of Jolly Ranchers and lots of Ice Breakers mint gum helps too.

Good luck and my best wishes.
