I'm only 17, i started at 12 stopped because i no longer could get them anymore and then started again consistenly at age 14. I tried to quit before but it never worked, ever, i just couldn't do it and after like the 3982394 time of tryin i then started smokin cowboy killers.
One day i just threw the pack out the window and just stopped. Cold turkey. I smoke maybe a puff of one every now and then, but only if i have to light my friend's cigerette for him since he can't do it while hes driving for some reason. I tried those patches and those didn't work, the gum didn't work, everything i've tried didn't work.
I just stopped, i didn't have a reason to quit, my parents cared that i did, but they never really said anything cept "that shits gonna kill ya one day and then you'll be sorry".
I'm now glad i did it. I feel better, i sleep better, i lift better, my gains are better, everything is better except I still can't find a girlfriend, all the girls i liked used the excuse "you smoke, i don't like people who smoke" but other then that all is better now.
My parents don't bitch at me, my sister doesn't cry cause she thinks i'll die of lung cancer, i have more money in my wallet and i feel better then ever.
