I am one straight up front. I have smoked for 44yrs. The only time I did not was when I was in the hospital for 3 months then 3 days late another month. It was no problem being on the patch during that time . But when I got out It only took 3 days to lite one up and that was all it took. Why can I not quit? I want to, I can. already seeking counsel but I still smoke. I feel my time is limited so why suffer the annoying symptoms of quitting. What is the real benefit here and is it really going to make me live longer. My damage is done and way beyond repair. I have lived a full life done my job so I really dont see it yet to just kick my little friends to the street and suffer cravings the rest of what life I have. I would like you smokers to share your reasons and you non smokers please dont this is for smokers only with copd. I will also share I am in a tobacco state of NC and they are still under 5 bucks a pack here and that is one factor for sure 10 bucks I definitely would not do. I may have to move out of state if and when I decide to quit these coffin nails.
