I've tried Wellebutrin, patches, gum, willpower. I know I need to quit. I'm almost 38 and have been smoking for 20 years. It's way past time I quit but every time I try, I get to a certain point where I just can't stand myself anymore and I always break down and buy a pack. Last time we tried to quit (my husband and I) we made it nearly 2 weeks, which is the longest I've ever gone, and I hate that I started again. My aunt tells me that when she smoked they didn't have all the chemicals in the cigarettes like today...she swears this is why she was able to quit so easily 25 years ago and why I am struggling so much.
What did you do? What was successful for you? Any advice is welcome, any tips or help greatly appreciated. And before anyone says it, no, I do not smoke in my home or around my son. And we always wash our hands after :)
