Ugh, just wrote a long introduction post then lost it because I was not logged in.
I am 36, have smoked since I was 18. That's half my life.. though I quit when I was pregnant and for the first few months after each of my 2 kids were born. I really didn't start smoking regularly until the second or third year, either.
But still... I have to admit it is half my life.
I am embarrassed and ashamed to admit I succumb to doing something so stupid, and I want to quit.
I haven't smoked since yesterday afternoon. I skipped the morning coffee cigarette successfully.. actually chose tea this morning on purpose.
I am hoping to find support and understanding here, and to offer it to others as well.
