Hello Freedom, I'm Sam-
I have been off Nicotine for 3 whole weeks and I feel GREAT!
A little about me,
I was a smoker for six years from when I was 16 until 3 weeks ago and I remember very well how it all started. I was at a summer-school program in NYC
where ALL of my class-mates where smokers. I was offered a cig from one of my new friends and surely the need to feel accepted had tempted me to light up.
I definitely did not expect to be a chain smoker within the week, but guess what.. It happened. Since then I had struggled with the addiction, struggled with the pressure from friends and family to stop. People telling me how disgusting it was, I remember saying to myself "I'm a jazzy smoker and these folks just don't know what they're missing out on."
For the longest time I truly thought smoking was classy. It's not.. AT ALL
Being short of breath at 22 from mild activity is not classy.
Smelling like an ash-tray is not classy.
Having to bolt out the door every half hour for a smoke is not classy.
When I decided to quit three weeks ago I bought some NRT patches as this was the method I used several months prior in a failed quit attempt.
That night as I was about to open the box and apply the first patch I discovered this website (Whyquit.com) and decided last minute to trash the patch and go cold turkey. I'm glad I did.
Thank you WhyQuit. This has been the most WONDERFUL resource for me in my battle with Nicotine. I am finally beginning to feel like a healthy, independent, human being again!
