    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.

    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.
