I am 51 years old, smoked little less then a pack a day for over 30 years. I have quit hundreds of times over the years. Never stuck, tried Chantix on two occasions, another pill, patch, hypnotism and other different methods. Always went back to smoking, but I never gave up quiting.
I quit again this last Sunday, decided to try the patch again. On Tuesday afternoon I said this silly. If I am going to quit then I am just going to quit and be done with it. So I ripped off the patch. I was waiting for the earth to shake and my body to go into revulsions or something. But nothing happened.
Here I am day 4 and it just feels different than any other time I have quit. I feel like I have done it. Is it to soon to feel this way? Am I kidding myself? Is this a sure sign I will fail again? I honestly don't think so.....I get the urge to smoke still but it doesn't seem that strong, I say a quick "Hail Mary" and the urge is gone.
