If you have tried to quit and you were unsuccessful. Don't give up, try again! It takes some longer than others. Keep trying as many times as you need to. Onetime you will find the thing that makes it worth it. Maybe it's your health, a friend or your child, it could be a spouse or parent. There is something that makes it worth it to you to quit. Everyone is different! Keep trying!! Be strong!!
I really liked smoking. It gave me a reason to go outside. I always had something to do with my hands. It helped my nerves, it helped me to be calm and was soothing.
I AM A QUITTER!!!!!!
Almost 12 years now. Yay. It's the hardest thing I've ever done and that's what has kept me from ever touching another cigarette.

I still want a nice pack of Marlboro reds really bad! But I don't want to ever have to quit again. It was to hard to do, so don't pick them up.

If you have quit! Good job!!! Don't even look back...you already did the hard part. Why do it again?

I miss the chance to vent and how others that were here would reply. Last few posts says things about doom and gloom and ect. Well it is awful not to be able to breathe. Being on oxygen and being by yourself in the world is not fun. I miss the friends I made here.I try to look at the bright side but it gets hard some days. This used to be such a wonderful place for people with copd, what a...
