Hi, I just started this yesterday. My quit date is August 27. I am the mother of two boys, who of course want me to stop smoking. However, I'm not just doing this for them. I've smoked since I was 15 or 16 (can't even remember), that's half of my life. Also, being an RN, I've seen what smoking does to you in the end and it isn't pretty. For me, I smoke most when I am bored so I'm dinking around on the computer and doing a lot of chores to try to stop that. This has got to be the hardest thing that I've ever tried to do. I've failed so many times before. Hopefully this time it will stick.
