I've tried to quit many times before and always went back. I have been nicotine free for 96+ hours and the withdrawal symptoms are awful. I'm taking it one breath at a time right now. At the end of each day I'm thankful for the strength that stopped me from giving in. My husband quit with me although he is on the patch. I've wasted money with that before, this time I need to feel bad and remember the withdrawal so I won't ever want to go through it again.
