Hi Carolyn

You're doing the right thing.  It's not easy, we've all been smoking for the majority of our adult lives.  For me it was so long that I had never been an adult nonsmoker until i quit when I was 55. 

It was tough at first.  I decided to use the 21mg patch, the strongest one, until I broke the habitual side of smoking. After that i would taper down to break the nicotine addiction aspect.  On the morning of the first day of the 5th week, I had to be at work earlier than usual. In the rush of things i forgot to put the patch and panic set in.  I thought about returning to get the patch but rush hour traffic didn't make this a reasonable option. So I white knuckled it that day and survived, and most importantly learned that I could live without the patch.  Since then I have learned to live without nicotine.  I am now ten years nicotine free.

I did it. You can too. Stick with the group, use the information here, it will help you.
