    I started smoking about 6 months ago.

    I think I'm addicted. I stopped for 2 days but I think it's more out of habit now. I just feel like I have to have one even when I feel like I don't need one. I'm going to stop because my eating habits are off. I just stop taking Zoloft for my depression. I'm all over the place...

    I didn't start until a year ago.

    Cigarettes I mean. Wretched cancer sticks that I loathed and loved simultaneously.School had been the only thing I've ever been truly good at which is very rewarding, but also kind of sad. But in my junior year of college, things got hard, courses got more intense, relationships...

    I've been smoking since I was 16

    and I need to quit. When I breathe deep it sounds wheezy and wake up coughing. I've quit twice only for a couple months, but I'm recently single from a 5yr relationship and just can't find the motivation. I absolutely must find motivation.
