    So had i tried everything... and couldn't do it... so i didn't even try for years, i figured i was doomed to be a smoker as i couldn't quit. I also enjoyed smoking which was another one of my down falls.. then a few weeks ago i started not liking it so much, so i decided to try quitting again.. 12 days ago i had my last cigarette, i have been smoke free for a 11 days... i did things my way, i didn't go with a program, i just made sure i had different things around to help me.. nicotene lozenges, inhaler, gum etc.. and gave myself permission to use any of those things if i felt the need to, i could not however have a cigarette.. so i have used them here and there.. the sad thing is.. i still don't feel good or right, or whatever.. but, anyway, it can be done..
