I began smoking when I was 14 or 15. I am now cigarette free for over 30 years. I know your fears and your inability to quit this addiction. It's been a part of you for so long that you can't do without it. To give up my cigarettes was like giving up eating ... or, so I thought. When I was tired I'd have a cigarette. When I needed a pick-me up I'd have a cigarette. If I was Hungary I'd have a cigarette. When I ate or drank something I'd have a cigarette. There are all kinds of triggers that causes the desire for a cigarette. However, there isn't anything in this world that can accommodate all of these triggers. It is very complex because it's part addiction and part habit. Do yourself a favor and look up SmokEnders dot com. They will teach you how to quit. It is expensive (or it was for me), but that is part of it. If it was free you probably wouldn't do the program. I wanted to get my monies worth so I followed it to the degree. I was free from that ball and chain in four weeks. I knew smoking was killing me but I was afraid if I quit I would still have the desire (or craving) to smoke. I promise, you will not be sorry. You will be so glad to get rid of that noose around your neck. I am not affiliated with the company in any way. I'm just a fellow ex-cigarette smoker wanting to help.
