For all who stumble upon this thread, I can feel the pain of trying to quit (and yes, quitting smoking will probably solve all the problems with high blood pressure), and felt completely overwhelmed, frustrated and alone in the process...the tipping point for me was knowing that I was in control of my life, and more importantly, that I had people I loved and that there are proven, scientific methods that have successfully helped millions to quit, and that if they can, I certainly can as well.

I hope that you'll reach out to the members of the community who can and are more than willing to help you with your affliction - do NOT try and fight this on your own...you'll end up with emotional distraught, upset and overwhelming frustration as you try but might not succeed without support.

Don't be afraid...you're truly not alone.
