  •  I did it! (9+ / 0-)

    Thought I was going to be the last person smoking - quit 20 years ago using the patch.  Still drink to excess, occasionally. (I live in New Orleans).

    Getting out of the daily routine and camping with someone who didn't smoke helped.  Took me a decade to stop automatically reaching to scratch my patch for an extra kick.  The 24 hours after stepping down a level made me a raging idiot, but it went away after that.

    I always said it had nothing to do with willpower, everything to do with 'you can't make me smoke' won't power.

    My husband, who just got a heart stent today, is quitting slowly using electronic cigarettes.  He was inhaling one while waiting for surgery.  He loves the Blu classic tobacco.

    If a blues musician and I can do it, have hope! It can be done!
