I'm 68 years old and have been smoking since I was 18. I have never been a heavy smoker, guess that is why I am still healthy. I've been struggling a long time with patches and gum so i could give up my 5 to 7 cigarettes I smoke each day. I also want to add that I am a so called closet smoker. I never smoke in front of anyone, guess i am ashamed that I am still smoking. My biggest fear is that one of my young grandsons would catch me smoking. Anyway I decided no more patches, no more gum. I am on day 9 now. I miss my cigarettes but want to stay healthy to see my grandchildren grow up. God has been good to me but really how far can I push it. I want to be a non- smoker; first time cold turkey. Made it one more day.
