    It seems I have tried so many times to quit, that I am at a loss and a bit discouraged.  Today, I will give quitting another shot.  I've tried the patch, champix and made it a best total of 4 months.  I don't know if this is a 'will' issue or just that I don't have the courage, but I know I don't want to be a smoker anymore.  I hope I can quit so that I have more energy, $$$ and health.  I don't even really know anymore why I smoke.  I guess these are some questions I will have to address.
    Have a great day!

    Congratulations on deciding to give quitting another shot! I relate to what you’re saying. I am early into my quit. It is tough but the people on this site remind me that it’s possible.

    Wishing you a successful quit!

    Hi Franny,

    Congrats on quitting today! 

    I know it can feel a bit discouraging to quit sometimes, but you have so many important reasons for doing this. You've also had great learning experiences with quitting in the past. I'm sure that will help you with this quit. 

    We are all here for you. Look forward to hearing about your journey.

    I understand completely how you feel Franny because I'm a decades-long smoker who has tried to quit many times.  However, I know I'm going to make it, and so can you!  If you quit for 4 months before, you can do it again and just keep on going.  I quit New Year's Day - it seems a few of us did.  Please come join us in making this a happy, smoke-free year!

    Hi Franny,

    So glad you are giving it another shot.

    Try not to be discouraged.  If quitting were easy, no one would smoke.  But quitting is hard.  It is also a learning process.  If you have quit for four months, then you can quit for life.  You just have to be more stubborn than your addiction.

    Focus on all of the reasons why you want to quit.  You can do this, Franny.  Believe in yourself.
