I am a 30 y/o female who has been smoking since the age of 16. I also suffered to alcohol and drug addiction for 15 years before I decided to get help. I went to a recovery centre for 10 days and I am currently 5 months clean and sober. Unfortunately, my smoking habit got a lot worse. I decided to quit smoking recently because it was controlling my life, destroying my appearance and making me feel icky and ill. Quitting the cigs have been a lot harder for me than booze. I hope there comes a day where I don’t think about it. Patience and persistence I guess.
