I've smoked for 40 years, just realized that 10 days ago on my quit day, feb. 22. I have been smoke free since feb.24 th using e-cig and it has helped, lots. I have tried the patch once, cold turkey the first two times with no sucess. This is going to be the last time. I feel very strong about quitting this time, I love the way I feel without cigarettes. I smell better, I hope I look better and I don't worry about transfering the smoke smell to my two wonderful grandchildren when I hold them. I certainly don't want them to call me stinky!
