Hello everyone from Chicago,
I stumbled upon this forum today and am glad I did, was reading all the old posts I could. I am 30 years old and have been smoking for 16 years without a break of more than six or seven days for the entire time. The one time I did go six days without smoking was when I had bronchitis so I don't really count that. I am about to complete my third day cig free and had a bit of a rough time this afternoon with it. Intense craving, zoning out, failure to concentrate, shaking, rapid heartbeat, sweating. Other than that doing just fine
I chose to quit because the price out here is so ridiculous and I couldnt justify spending my hard earned money on killing myself. I look forward to using this forum as my support group to get past this horrific addiction.
