I want to quit smoking

Where do I begin? My family and friends keep telling me to just throw away the cigarettes and quit but I can't. Everyone makes it sound so easy and I don't know what is wrong with me that I can't just throw these things away and move on with my life. Someone please help me.

Hi Phyllis and welcome to the board. If only it were as easy as just "throwing the cigarrettes away". Anyone who has ever quit can tell you that there is no easy way to do it. Some start at their doctor's office and others sweat it out. Breaking a habit is not an easy thing to do. I want to offer you some stories and advice from iVillage Health that hopefully you will find helpful: Quit Smoking

Please stop back by and let us know how your smoke-free campaign is going. :-)
