    Hello I introduced myself last year but I'm still addicted. I smoke 2 packs a day. I have decided to try again tomorrow. I am feeling despair at times to be honest as I've been trying since March of 2020 and the longest I could go is 19 days. I experience intense withdrawl especially mental. I live with 2 mental illness bipolar with psychosis and c ptsd which smoking I use to cope as bad and self destructive as it is. I do know my mental health can improve by leaps if I quit for good. I also am on odsp so I am having a lot of idle time my home support worker is helping me get more of a scheduele of activities going to fill my day. I'm not much of a TV watcher although I try. I want this. I have periodontal disease and cancer has ended the life of countless relatives young due to their smoking. My father just had a stroke due to smoking. I need all the help I can get. I truly can't do this alone! Please help me.

    Hi tinalee.  I can understand what you are going through  , as I smoked for over 50 years , and tried to quit many times. I used the patches for the first while then just said I can do this. So keep yourself busy and drink lots of water .  I am now 9 months smoke free and do not miss it as much as I thought I would. I keep saying nope, and all my family are rooting for me,  Yes I still get urges, but they are less and less. Good luck, I will be rooting for you also.
