    June 13th is my quit date, I've smoked for 25 years and I have a strong urge to end this addiction forever. Looking forward to hearing every ones struggles and triumphs, I am sure it will be encouraging to no that I am not alone, and to read others successes .Good luck to all those that are newly smoke free, and congrats to all those who continue to break this addiction.

    I wish you success!! I am really struggling trying to quit. I have several quits behind me and kept going back. I always wanted to quit but now I need to quit! CANCER-been very depressed trying to quit again and failing. It is not lung cancer but regardless cancer is cancer. Guess I am just a whimp-live alone, and feel so much more alone with this chemo. I don't know if smoking has anything to do with the type of cancer I have but I am sure it doesn't help!

    I, too, have smoked for more than 20 years and although I have tried to quit before, and like you I am having really strong urges to end this cycle of quitting and break the addiction. I have been quit for 1 month, and it is actually getting harder not easier. The urges to smoke are becoming less frequent, but much stronger. I feel sooooo much better and in so many ways. I wish you sucess in your journey
