Hello everyone!! My name is Alicia and My reasons for quitting smoking ... Hmmm I am only on day 8 and I feel great so far! I had really bad anxiety from day 3-6 and now I can distract myself from those little episodes. I honestly started smoking at age 15 and now I'm 20 and have met an awesome guy who has encouraged me it's possible take up a new lifestyle. I admit I signed up for the forum because I just need the support from people who have had the addiction and now are in the same boat as me.
