I just turned 50 and have been thinking a lot about my smoking. I have been smoking for over half my life. My memories revolve around smoking. My daily routine revolves around smoking. I desperately want to quit and have tried numerous times. I am unable to take medication that would ease the cravings. I’ve tried with serious side effects. So I’m left with will power and nicotine replacement. I had decided that since I was off today on New Years it would be easier to start my quit at home. Wrong. I gave in twice and felt so ashamed. Any advice out there to help me just reach 1 week??
