I have been smoking for the last 15 years and truely want to stop. I dont enjoy it and i dont like the way i feel anymore. I have made numerous attempts to stop in the past year and after each one i have felt so silly that i have given in again!! I know that there is no physical pain involved in quitting and i know that it is my mind playing tricks on me to light the cigarette. The problem that i have is the FEAR!! I just cant seem to get past it. I dont know if its because i cant remember a time when i wasnt smoking or weather it is because it is like grieving or what it is. Has anyone else experienced this "fear of giving up" or not??? Are there any suggestions on how I can get past this and acchieve the one thing i want....to not smoke anymore!!!!!!!!!
