I am nearly 52 and started smoking at 14. I have quit oncwe for two years and once for 8 months 3 months ago. My quit date was July 24, 2012. I am using 14 mg patches and lozenges (2mg). So far I ahve stayed with the N.O.P.E. program. Today I found out my mother has less than a year to live, uterine cancer. I intend to use this to strengthen my resolve not diminish it. I have only used 2 lozenges today. I am committed but, any help is appreciated. Thanks for letting me share.
