I have tried to quit sooo many times--patches, hypnosis, support groups, Chantex, cold turkey etc. Have smoked for 40 years, and tried to stop for the past 20 (seems unbelievable when I look at all those years). I think it keeps coming back to the fact that a big part of me wants to smoke, and wants it to be ok to smoke (I fully realize what irrational nonsense that is). I am almost afraid to try any more. How have others gotten past that ambivalence?
