Recently quit smoking after 40 years of a pack a day. Nicotine is a horribly strong drug that is extremely difficult to detox from. Please don’t judge people who tried to quit smoking and failed. My grandmother, mother, 2aunts and a sister all failed and had accepted their fate and all are now dead. I am trying very hard to not relapse but it is very very hard, even being faced with death. Please never stop trying even if you have to quit smoking everyday. Realize that you made a mistake and try again. It is when you stop trying that you will surely die. Keep trying! You can do it!
