my name is Melba and I'm a smoker. But I have been trying to quit and I think I've done pretty good. I was smoking anywhere from a pack to a pack and 1/2 a day. It depends on my day. A little history I started smoking about 32 yrs ago. And I'm 50yrs old, now fixing to turn 51 in 4 days. I tried sevral times to quit with no sucess. But as of Nov. 15th of this year the place I work become a no smoking campass we can't even go to our cars to smoke. And I work at a Mental Hospital so you can image my day I work 10hr days. Any I started last week not going to my car and I went 4 days with out smoking at work so I thought If I can do that and (belive me it wasn't easy working with these people) then I can do it at home well I'm not saying I have not but I am down to half of what I was smoking. I'm not taking anything I am doing a lot of deep breathing and eating alot of winter mints. And so I am hoping to work my way down to nothing. I'm sorry this is long being my first but it feels good to write it out thanks for reading. You all have a great day.
