I tried to quit shortly after I started to smoke, many times, but it never happened. I could smoke 1 pack in 2 hours, one cig after another and together with alcohol. Almost every day of the week, so I started to find it sick. I was wasting my time and earning future health problem. That's my reason to quit, take back control of my time, body and become true to myself as I never liked smoking.

I didn't smoke long time comparing to others here (above 11 yrs I think), I feel I was not good enough smoker sometimes haha and that it's easy for me to quit, which might be true. But for years it felt impossible to do.

Oh I am sorry to hear that Anthony, but am so glad you found your strength to start your quit again. Such a wicked disease this is to constantly fight to keep us within its grips.  44 days will be here again before you know it and you will win the war. Much encouragement to you in both your physical recovery and refreshed quit!

WOW Oxsana, I have smoked like a chimney, one cigarette right after the other, thinking that when I would quite smoking all those cigarettes that I would quit.  I am sure I have smoked a pack of cigarettes in record time and then instead of quitting I would just go out and buy another pack of cigarettes!
I have started and quit so many times.  The reason I would start smoking again, EVERYTIME, is that I convinced myself that I could handle just a few a day.  
Glad you are here!
