    Going to hypnosis next Monday night...

    Smoked for 30 years, tried it all but always started again. I think I could probably just stop without anything at this age and time. Haven't tried to quit for 10 years. Wife wants to see if hypnosis could be a simple switch. I read an article that indicated you cut your chances of dying in half over the next 15 years by quitting at the age of 50. I don't like those odds. At all... I'm 47.. I need to quit. I gotta 4 year old that I may not see graduate high school.

    Need support for quitting smoking.

    I have smoked for 20 plus years. I am 45 years old and have been diagnosed with COPD. I continued to smoke after the diagnosis. I know stupid. I have been short of breath and wheezing a lot in the last 6 months but still did not quit. It wasn't until this past Saturday that I got a big wake up call. I had to go to hospital by ambulance as my pulse ox was 66%! I had a blood test that basically showed my body not being able to expel the carbon dioxide from my lungs. Had to be put on a BIPAP machine....

    Allen Carr or Chantix

    I used Chantix and read Allen carr book. I was not actually regular on Chantix and many times miss. I stopped o Feb 6th and now reached 45 days. I had 5 cigarette during this first few days as I was not strictly pushing me to stop until I reach March 1st. Then onward, it is real and so far I dont see reason to go back. There is urge always but easier to control. A small relapse is not a reason to start again. Use it as a way to understand your weakness and vulnerability to reaffirm the decision.....

    Hoarseness and dry cough days after quitting

    I quit smoking 11 days ago. I am using the lozenges and besides being irritable occasionally, I do not have withdrawal symptoms. I have no doubt that I will quit successfully. I smoked for 12 years, quit for 8 years, life happened and I started smoking after hanging with other smokers during a time of stress. This time, I have been smoking for 8 years and I am done. However, just a couple of days after quitting, I felt like I had a cold...you know the kind that settles in your chest. I guess I started....
