Want to Soooo Bad

I've been a closet smoker since my 19th birthday, I've kept it pretty light though.. like maybe a pack a week but I really really wanna give it up and get back to my old in-shape and fit self again.  Any EPers have any good tips On how I can cut this disgusting habit out once and for all? I'm willing to try anything lol

Man, I hope you can quit that addiction. I am a nursing student. My patient yesterday had COPD (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease) due to smoking a pack a week for fourty years. He is in his mid 60's and needs someone to wipe his butt and get him into a chair because it takes too much energy. He will tell you that he thought it was cool at the time, but wishes he never even started. <br />

When I was in High School, we got to spend an evening at the local Med School. There we saw cadavers. One was a 17 year old male with pink, sponge cake like lungs. The other was a mid 50's woman who smoked. They looked like liver, black, slimy and filled with holes. I could even smell the cigarettes even after having been embalmed. <br />
<br />
Those are my two stories. It is one of the hardest addictions to quit. Do not fool yourself, you can not do it alone, and it IS a lifetime battle. Quit now, while it is easier.<br />

Good luck, and good health.
