Hi everyone. My name is Betty & I started smoking at age 16 & am now 59. Tomorrow marks 5 months without a cig. I actually quit 3x in my life but only while pregnant. I did not even have a problem quitting those times because 1) they made me queasy and 2) I’d picture my baby smoking with me. I went right back to cigs each time, the second I was released from the hospital. I had no urge to quit for real until a trip to the E.R. this past Nov when I was told I needed stents for heart blockages. They put me on nicotene patches in the hospital & I used them for 2 weeks before switching to low nicotene vaping. My plan is to get down to 0 nic & then quit vaping completely. I almost went back to cigs last month when I was told I had a blood disorder which was the real cause of my blockages & not the cigs but a voice inside told me this would be my last chance to quit. I knew it would be just a matter of time before cigs got me for real & I want to be alive to enjoy grandchildren, if I am ever blessed with them. So here I am. Anyway, been lurking and reading posts here for a month or so & decided to introduce myself on the chance I get weak and need some encouragement.
