I'm trying to find out more info on the SmokeAway system (have you seen the ads on TV?)...I checked the website, and of course it has testomonials from their "customers"
Has anyone here tried it, or known anyone who has tried it and quit successfully?
I've tried cold turkey, the patch, the gum, and I just have had a really hard time with quitting. Any suggestions?

I don't think I had very much stress in my life ever (ok, sometimes I did).
I started smoking when I was 14. It was socially acceptable and sure enough I got hooked.
By the time I was 24 I was doing a pack a day and had 10 years under my belt.
I have attempted to quit many many times and succeeded for short times (a month, 6 months etc...).
When I turned 45 last Jan. something strange happened. I realized I was not immortal or something.
I started taking wellbutrin, bought some patches and quit.
I know I cannot have even one cig.
I still crave now and then but I want to be successful.
I want to see my kids grow up.
I don't want to die my fathers long withering death.
I want to retire someday and actually have a retirement!
I am enjoying long walks without gasping for breath.
I like the feeling that no cig will control my life.
My skin feels better.
I don't smell like my former smoking buddies do.
I am working out, lost 25 pounds and am starting to see a 6 pack take shape (at 45 mind you!)
My wife likes to kiss me more (her words not mine).
My kids tell me they are proud of me for quitting.
I can smell things I used to couldn't.
I have NOT smoked 3300 cigarettes.
I have saved 649.00!
It is a constant battle as I do not know when I will REALLY want one.
It is the one thing I am really proud of myself for.
If you want to quit. You can do it!
129 days quit!
