My name is Ron. I'm an American that has been living in the Philippines (cigarettes about $00.30 a pack here) for about 10 years now. I will be 62 on Dec. 19th and have been smoking since I was 15 . I made myself a promise that I would quit on my birthday. Well, I didn't wait that long. I put out my last cigarette a little over 12 hours ago. The last couple of hours have been hard because the afternoons are usually when I go outside, light up and have a few beers. I also drank the last of my beers last night so that I wouldn't have the urge to smoke while drinking. Anyway, it is now a little after 5:00 PM here, and I put out my last smoke at 4:54 this morning. I've tried to quit I don't know how many times before, but this time I'm giving it all I've got. Wish me luck. I know I'm going to need it!!
I'll be back tomorrow to report on day 2
