I went Cold Turkey in 1991 and quit for 20 years, then a girl left a pack of smokes on my table at a bar and like a dummy I smoked.  I have tried Chantix about 10 times and it would get me down to 1 cigarette a day, and then I would be right back at it.  I try quitting about once a week.  I am 71 and trying to build up a good exercise routine, and I need to shake this addiction again so I can do what I want to do.  Right now I am only walking 3.75 miles at a 3 mph pace, but I want to get up to 5 miles at a 4 mph pace and for that I must quit smoking.  I am trying to get back the mindset that I had in 1991, and using my desire for exercise as my motivation.  I may try Chantix again.  I was the Poster Boy for quitting smoking, and I can do it again.  I know that if I go 3 days that I can quit.
