I have been smoking since I was 9 and I am now 43. I just had a double bypass surgery 2 weeks ago. I have been trying to quit for over a year. My problem is that because of my heart I can't not use the patch and the gum and lozengers make me sick. The pills make me crazy, I am bipolar and suffer from depression. I really want to quit but for me it is like saying good bye to a friend and that is hard. But I want to live so I have to give them up.
