I started smoking at the age of fifteen, and am now 30. I just woke up one day last week and decided that when the cigarettes I had in my possession (which was about 5 packs) were gone, I was quitting for good. I was about a pack-and-a-half a day smoker, so I knew it was going to be a challenge, but I just have to do it. I couldn’t breathe anymore, was a terrible wheezer, my heart was beating irregularly…all that good stuff. To top it all off, I had a great singing voice, and am aching to have that back again!!! So…it’s been four days on the patch, and I still haven’t taken one drag of a cigarette. Let me tell you, it is the hardest thing I’ve ever done in my entire life!!! Sooo worth it, though. Even though it’s only been four days, I can already breathe, taste, smell and sing a lot better…I hope I can keep up the good work…Good luck to every person reading this…believe me, if I can do it, so can you!!!
