Thanks for responding kam6400,how are you doing? Day 3 I can not believe this,started crying for no reason,go figure. I guess it is all the stress in quitting, I am doing this alone,yes alone,My husband who I thought was a wonderful man,just said to me get over it,everyone quit, He quit 20 years ago,and believe this had no problem...I was so proud of him, But did I quit,no just change smoking places like you,and would not smoke around him. Thanks for reading this,having a hard time...I am glad there are people out there like you..I am going to do this!!!View Thread
