My Story
Nov 6, 2006
I have been lurking around for awhile( I am a member on some of the other boards) I just wanted to share my story. It's not terrific, or long, but I wanted you guys to know that if I could quit, ANYONE can do it.

I am 53 yrs old, haven't had a cigarette in 4yrs and 1 week(who's counting) I started smoking at age 8.( I was stealing my moms cigarettes) At age 12 she gave me permission to smoke, and bought my cigarettes. I tried to quit from the time I was 25 till up to 4 yrs ago when I quit cold turkey. I was a 4 pack a day smoker. 2 years ago I was DX'ed with Emphysema and Interstitial Nephritis of the Kidneys from smoking.

Quitting was the hardest thing I have ever done. My neighbors all STAYED out of my way. Murder was not far from my mind for weeks. I had anxiety attacks, and panic attacks, for the first few days, until my Dr prescribed Zanax. It helped me to get over the hump. Today I HATE the smell of a cigarette and can smell one a mile away.

Please ask your Dr's for a script for something for the anxiety to help you. Do the patch, gum, or whatever, but please don't give up trying to quit.
