I'm sixteen years old, and I've been smoking since I was ten. I don't know what my ' triggers' are, except anxiety and stress. I smoke more than just when I'm anxious or stressed though. I smoke when I wake up. An hour later I smoke again. I smoke after I eat, I smoke when I look at the time and say "oh it's been awhile, it's a good time to smoke again." I smoke after sex (tmi but the counselor from 1800quitnow asked if that was a trigger so...) I smoke all the time. I smoke cigars, Swisher Sweets to be specific, and I smoke anywhere between 2 to 5 a day. When I have cigarettes, I'll smoke 7 or 8 a day. I've never tried to quit but I might be pregnant and if I'm not I do plan to be soon. My quit date is September 5th at the latest, that's when I will have access to the nicotine patches and gum. So my questions are.... What do I expect? What are withdrawals like? How do I avoid smoking in general? How do I use patches and where would the best place to put them be? What are they like? Does the gum taste funny? 

Thank you for your time.
