    Here in South Dakota they have a quit line you can call. They will pay half the price for the patch, gum, pill, ...ect. I chose too use the patch. The SD quit line # is 1-866-737-8487. I'm sure they can refer you too a number for your state. It's really not that hard too quit. Once you're ready, just don't buy anymore ciggerettes. I do think the patch has helped curb my cravings for nicotine at first. I'm currently on step 2, a lower doseage. I've skipped the patch a few days and really didn't notice a difference, but I try too only skip like every 3 or 4 days.

    Wow. Good job man. I quit completely for about ten months a while back, now I'm back to like 3 or 4 a week (cigs not packs) and can't stand it.


    Keep it up! Maybe you'll inspire me to get back on the wagon.

    Way to go Paul!! Pretty soon you're gonna be the picture of health.

    Its' been about 14 years since I quit and I still like the smell when somebody first lites. I think its the burning paper. Sure saves money !!!

    Good for you dude! Once you have the mental part down quitting is easy! I started chewing to quit smoking. It took me another 30 yrs to get my brain staightened out to quit chewing. I fooled myself into thinking it would be easier to quit chewing, what an idiot I was. KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK!

    I quit 18yrs ago . no patch or shock treatment . Just cold turkey . Man I remember a carton of marbroll reds at the px was $3.50 or $4.00 . It's what $34.00 a carton now and a pack is ? $3.50 . Do the math . a pack a day habit is over $100 a month and over $1200 a year ! What if your better half smokes also ? x2 . What if you smoke 2 packs a day like my neighbor + his wife smokes almost a pack and a half . That's over $3000 a yr for cig's :eek1: . in a 5 year period that cash could have bought a new car . just think , all that cig money is cutting into your 4x4 rig money :wink1: . that money could go into better places :k5: and you would possibley be in better health for it .
