I've smoke for more years than I'm going to tell and I've tried to quit at least 25 times. I've never been successful. Are you still smoking? Have you ever tried to quit? What did you use to quit with? How many times have you tried to quit?

I just put up a post asking for tips on quitting. LOL I have quit once before for two years then it started back up. I unsuccessfully tried one other time since then but I was too discouraged. I had tried the patch and the gum but they actually increased my cravings. I have never found a suitable way to do it and cold turkey makes me grumpy and miserable. I just wish I could wake up tomorrow and the addiction magically disappeared.

I've never smoked, but my husband started smoking when he was 10 years old and after almost 30 years one day he just decides to quit and does. The bad part is I didn't even notice. About three days later he told me because I never noticed. He eats a lot more now and gained a few pounds, but not too many. I don't know how he did it, but I'm proud of him.

Yeah, that's my problem - I've tried lots of time but nothing has ever worked. I'm such an addict!
