Maybe a week ago, I was chatting with a friend on the internet and said to him, "I think you and I should quit smoking together on July 4th". Tonight I was reminded of that ... and though, I had given it little thought, apparently he has. So... the plan is indeed to quit smoking on July 4th. I have been smoking since I was 21 years old. I have tried to quit numerous times over the years. Have had a few successes, once for three months, but some how always go back to the nasty habit. I do think it will help to have a quit buddy. I know from experience that it is a very hard habit to break! Seems like the more I think about it tonight the more anxious I get. But ... that does not mean I am not ready to quit because I am! I know the health risk and the monetary cost as well. it's just time to give it up for good.
