im 20 years old, and have been smoking for almost a year. I started smoking really quickly, from 3 per day to almost a pack a day in about 6 months. I decided today that my lungs have hurt for the past week and I’m blowing through my money on cigarettes, and so much time during the day smoking/thinking about smoking, which is severely hurting my productivity. ITS TIME to QUIT. Just quit and not look back. I had my last smoke 15 minutes ago, and I have a box of patches to start in the morning. Joined the community because I think some encouragment would go a mile right now!
