Desperate to quit!!

I'm a mom of three and a 17 year smoker. My biggest kick in the butt was in Feb. when my mom was diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer that has metastasized to her brain. My mom and my kids are THE MOST important things in my life! And being given the job of full-time care-giver to my mom, it is even more reason for me to quit once and for all!!

 I am new to this and don't know exactly what to do next...or first, for that matter. So any and all info is appreciated and welcomed! Thanks :D

Welcome to the group.  I am somewhat new to the program myself but have 30 days of being a non smoker.  It took me 2 years and 10 relapses to finally get my quit.  I hope it doesn't take you that long but view the sight and READ.  A lot of the more experienced EX smokers sent me articles to read which were very insightful.  If I knew how to send them to you I would.  Good luck and write me anytime you feel a need.
