I just quit again last Thursday. Last time I had quit was 23 years ago. Had quit for 4 years and then a relative ( yes, of all people ) wanted me to join him in smoking. As I was there over a weekend, I did join him, and was hooked once again. I will tell you it was not that difficult when I stopped last time. I was totally ready - nobody had told me to quit, it was totally my own decision. That is the only way that you can quit - if you want to.
THis time, although I felt in a rational sense that I needed to quit, I found it so much more difficult. Tobacco is more addictive than even cocaine and other hard drugs. And this time - smoking for 19 years - was seriously taking a toll on me. Plus, 1 very important thing - I really did not want to quit as I like smoking.
Both times, I have done it cold turkey.
Every day is a struggle, but I know that I can do it.
And when you are ready, you will be able to do it, too.
