@Icon,
I've been smoking for over 20 years now and recently I have had really painful pains in my chest and I just know it's the smoking, I dread to think what my lungs are like. Now is the time to give up. Today I stop or at leat cut down alot.

The very thought of giving up makes me want one even more. Ok so I've had one so far and im off to out now with no cigs, see how long it takes before I crack. I've been smoking about 20 a day, most of my friends and collegues smoke so no support there! Here I go then, wish me luck, my job doesn't help but im going to try breathing techniques to calm me down, that's why people reach for the cancer sticks when they're stressed, smoking mimics deep breathing.
It feels like my throat is on fire but ahh the satisfaction.

Well, good luck Caroline! I had recently started smoking after kicking the habit for two years after the stress of my health problems and school. I am also trying to kick the habit again, and I am struggling. I am on my last pack, and then I am quitting cold turkey. The first week is rough, but then it gets easier every day. My advice, practice deep breathing when you feel the urge to smoke.

@Icon,
Thank you T.Smile Good luck to you too. I've had 3 today and my throat has just stopped burning and im really enjoying that my chest has stopped hurting, ive been bouncing around because I dont get out of breath anymore. I walk alot and I lose my breath whilst talking on the phone too and I didn't feel it so bad today. I still feel a bit flemmy in the throat. I want one now but I hope I wont, the burning feeling hasn't entirely left my mouth and lungs yet. I only had 3 yesterday, (I started yesterday), the day before I probably had about 25, so it's good for me, I have to do it this time because I swear it's a real painful death for me else. I have to lock out my friends though.

It feels really good/healthy and the thought of smoking repells me then the next minute i want one. Im wearing a patch so I think that maybe helping.
