Hi everyone.......They say support is part of the whole quitting process and I see here we plenty of it!!!! My name is Mike and I have been smoking 20-25 cigarettes for 14 years. I am now 31 years old and just sick of smoking !!! The way it makes me feel at times is just not worth it...you know increased anxiety, feeling heavy in the chest, that smokers tint on the skin, smell...etc, etc, etc!!!! I tried quitting five days ago and made it for one day when I found the withdrawl symptoms to be too hot to handle but I really didn't have urges just the symptoms. I went to the store and got the gum mint flavor which hopefully will reduce the symptoms. so I start now with Gum and all and the feeling that I rather not quit but at the same time I just want to become a non smoker already!!!! So everyone you'll be hearing from me and any advice I would greatly appreciate!!!
