I smoked for 23 years and used the patches to help "ease the pain" . The easy thing to do is pick one up, Good luck !!!!

Don't kid yourself Ed. If your Mother's been a serious smoker for 65 years, though she may still be alive, she's not in good health.

One thing that needs mentioning to quitting smokers is this: By quitting, think of the lives AROUND you you might be saving, as well as your own. If it is truly better to give than to receive, then you, by quitting, might be giving the ultimate gift to those around you. My wife quit in April, and we're quite aware of the hugeness of this gift. I like to tell people that even though she's the one fighting the demon, WE quit smoking (a little like "we're" pregnant). THANK YOU ALL FOR LOSING THE CIGARETTES.

Roy (ex-smoker)

I have never been a smoker, but both my parents were. Even though my dad quit smoking in 1965, he had a chest xray done in 1999, and the first thing the pulmonologist asked him was how long ago he quit smoking! The sooner you quit, the better...but, I am sure you have heard it all before. I watched my mother lie about her nicotine addiction, then hate us when she finally decided to quit...her oncologist insisted.

Anyone with the strength to quit smoking has my deepest respect and admiration. Your health and the health of your family can only benefit...
