    After reading up for a while now and cutting back on smoking for awhile now I finally quit smoking once again. I started smoking when I was 18 quit for two years in my 20's and tried several times since without much success. I went from smoking a pack a day for years, then finally down to a half pack over the last year. I change from smoking any where I could to first stopping the smoking at home, then cutting out smoking in the car, then finally now at work (the company went smoke free as of 4/1/13) I bought some patches and now with a lot of gum and mints I have finally stopped. So far I am doing alright in the fact that today was the first day back after quitting and even with the heck that went on first and foremost I didn't smoke and second I still don't want to smoke. It is tough I know and it is only been 4 days, but all I can say is it is a start.
