I have been a smoker for five years now. I guess i got into smoking while i was in college and hanging out with friends. I used to go over to their houses and sit around 4 or 5 of them smoking and i was the only non-smoker at the time. Eventually i started to bum a smoke here and there then i bought my own pack and... wham just like that i was hooked. A couple years down the road i got married and had two wonderful kids. My son is now 4 and keeps begging me to quit smoking, and i know that my parents and wife are behind it. However, i am happy to say that i haven't had a cigarette in over a week. It was hard for the first couple of days, but i managed to talk two of my friends into quitting with me. They are not doing so good with it but they have definitely drop their consumption rate. But, just knowing that they were there and trying to quit with me made a huge difference. I think that the buddy system can go a long ways when you are trying to quit. So all you smokers looking to quit grab a buddy and go for it. Best of Luck.
