So im getting ready to quit. Mostly because of the pressure from my doctors and family.  I don't want to quit. I love smoking.  Ive smoked since I was 16 and Im now 45.  But im at a family thanksgiving gathering right now, and again, I am the only smoker left.  The same as everywhere else I go in my life.  This part I hate.  Removing myself from the group to smoke.  Grrrrr.  Any advice is appreciated.  Ive been wearing patches and tbey do nothing. Even at the highest level.  I dont know how im going to get iver the cravings!! Which is why I haven't chosen a quit date.  I also have crohns disease.  And they think I will feel TONS of relief of a current flare up if I quit.  Im not even motivated by that.  I have an addictive personality.  Im addictied to a lot of things that aren't good for me.  But this is the worst one. Im so tired of the judgement and disappointment in peoples eyes when I smoke.  Help!!
