I have cronic COPD, I used to smoke until I spent 3 months in hospital when I was diagnosed. The staff were great they offerd patches etc whilst i was an in patient, and told me could have lots of help with staying off ciggies when I go home. I am not a martyr but I refused patches and just STOPPED. I have days when I want a fag, dont get me wrong, but I have a little mantra I say to myself when I want to smoke .... "I wont to live MORE than I wont to smoke" . Its been 5 years now and the number of times I need to say my mantra is almost never now. Good luck with stopping the FAGS
