    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.

    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.

    Whatever it takes ...

    I'm so happy for you! I smoked for 45 years! (Wow, can't believe it was that long lol). I had tried Chantix but it wasn't right for me. I used the patch for about a month then stopped that. It's been over 5 months and I'm feeling so much better! Keep it up and good luck!
