I stopped smoking one week ago tonight at 7:00 p.m. Friday January 11, 2013. Had a severe flu and then ended up in Er on Saturday with 2nd bacterial infection. That was enough to make me try to quit. I am 65 years old, have smoked since I was 16; I smoked approximately 12 cigarettes a day. I am still recouperating now from flu and bronchial bacterial infection, had to send my two dogs elsewhere for a few days as I cannot walk them. Wish I had never started - hindsight. Yes, I am struggling. I feel that I get worse each day and crave a cigarette something terrible. I am determined to make it though because I do not want to end up back in ER again. That alone was frightening.
