Robin (41 year) - Nationality: American - August 25, 2003

"I am 41 years old and started smoking when I was around 12. I stopped smoking around 6 weeks ago. I thought about quitting for several months before actually quitting. I stopped cold turkey with the help of a website. This was my first attempt to quit and I am reasonably sure I won't ever start smoking again. The first three weeks were very hard. All I thought about was smoking and why I didn't want to smoke any more. I suffered with headaches but eventually got over them. The withdrawal was worth the trouble. I was so afraid of getting emphysema or some other lung related disease. I couldn't imagine having to spend the rest of my life hooked up to oxygen and spending all my energy stuggling for every breath. I guess fear was my number one reason for quitting. The way to stay quit is to NEVER TAKE ANOTHER PUFF. If I never take another puff, I'll never have to worry about getting hooked again. If you don't smoke, please don't start. If you do smoke, quit now while you can still breathe on your own."
