40 Days and Counting
This has been my third and most successful time attempting to quit after 2 years of a 10-20 a day habit. I used 21mg nicotine patches, not even the whole box but maybe 12 patches over three weeks, and for the past three weeks I've had no nicotine. Its been great, saving money, feeling healthier, regaining my sense of smell, running around lakes and up stairs... but it's still very, very hard. I'm around smokers constantly and the only thing keeping me from starting up again is how much it would suck to make it 41+ days the next time I quit.
