    9 Days And Counting

    I quit nine days ago with the help of the patch. This is my 3d time quitting after smoking for 45 years, but for some reason it feels right this time.I realize it's too early to say I'm a non smoker, but that is my goal.

    I've been smoking a lot more recently. I think I've officially picked it up as a habit. It turns me on so much. I don't know how to tell my friends or family though.
