I started smoking age 13/14? I was allowed to smoke which I think may have contributed to the problem. Going to school, I was given cigarettes because I did ask for them. From the ages of 13-18 I smoked about 20 cigarettes a day, I am 25 now, the smoking varies....sometimes 30 sometimes 50. So we will say about 40. I was born with asthma and I am in trouble with my lungs, I have lung appointments every so often. Last christmas I got recurrent pneumonia and was very ill, I was hospitalized. There is no way I am going through that again.No way. Now the problem is I LOVE smoking not going to deny it, I LOVE it, it calms me, helps my anxiety but it's a dirty habit that I would love to kick. I have tried everything to stop smoking the e cigs(they did not help at all, don't care what others say about them, absolutely hate them and they are no help), inhaler,gum,anti smoking tablets(champix), patches. The best of those were the gum. The gum was strong and felt like cigarettes, in 2008, I managed to quit for 3 weeks using them. I HAVE to stop. I have got 210 pieces of the gum off the doctor at the strongest strength. I need to find the strength to kick this habit but I CANNOT find it! Could anyone advise me please? Any advice is greatly appreciated! Thank you in advance.
