As a 14 year stroke survivor and a smoker of fifty years, this is truly the hardest thing I have ever done.  I only quit yesterday, July 16,2018.  The cravings are strong.  The withdrawal symptoms are ever- present.  But, time and money aside, the prospects of lung cancer and COPD are compelling enough for me to take on this fight.  I would love to communicate with other quitters.  I have a very small support group; I need all the help I can get. 

By the way, perhaps my most compelling current reason for quitting is music.  I have a beautiful, silver Yamaha Flute.  I have been taking lessons for two months and am seeing steady progress.  But, I have great difficulty playing long tones and controlling my air flow.  Big surprise, huh?  Quitting is the answer to my prayer.  Please join me in our quit.
