53. Thanks for this. I've been very seriously trying to psych myself up to quit
Trying to get mentally prepared and all that.

I've quit before, but obviously not permanently. I quit during both of my pregnancies and breastfeeding times, and I quit another time back in about 2000/2001 for several months... only to go back to it. It sucks, I feel so weak when it comes to this. I don't even really enjoy smoking anymore, because I feel like I HAVE to smoke to function properly. I smoke about a pack a day, Marlboro Lights. I've used the patch in the past, but it doesn't seem to agree with me. It seems too strong or something... it makes me feel nauseated and dizzy, completely knocks me on my ass. I wonder if using a "step" patch would work, on a step 3 with lower levels of nicotine. I've also wondered about the gum. I tried to quit cold turkey a few months ago and caved after about 36 hours, so I think a crutch would help with success.
