Hi, I'm Emily. I'm 26 with a 4 year old and I'm quitting for him. To stick around for him, to keep up with him, to set a good example. I smoked cigarettes from the time I was 12 to the time I was 22. I quit cold turkey when I was pregnant with no problem. Those hormones sure can kick your ass into gear. I picked up the Juul about a year after he was born and told myself this is better. Its less harmful and wont put out secondhand smoke. I was being stupid and wrong. It's not better. It's worse. I've never been so dependent on something. So my struggle is that I suffer from frequent panic attacks as it is. When I try to quit, which I have a couple times. I always get panic attacks. I can't get through the feeling of hopelessness. I'm so scared to get through this, but I've never wanted anything more. I have to do this. For me, for my son. How can I stop smoking the Juul and how can I prevent it from seriously effecting my mental health.
