Disclosure:  I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for CVS/pharmacy MinuteClinic. I received promotional items as a thank you for participating.

I tried everything to quit smoking.  It was one of the hardest things I’ve ever done.  I liked to smoke.  I liked the camaraderie of sharing a break with other smokers. I liked the slow tempo of having a cigarette after a meal.  I liked the accessories – the lighters and cases.  What I didn’t like was knowing that it was going to kill me one day.   When there were more non-smokers and smokers became unwelcome in public places, I also didn’t like the feeling of being disliked simply because of my habit.  It was time to quit.

I tried to quit on my own and that didn’t even last a day.  So I tried other ways like nicotine gum, patches, acupuncture, even hypnosis.  It was a long time and a long journey, but what mattered was that I didn’t give up.  What finally worked for me was being in a program and having weekly sessions that provided a place for accountability, advice and support.  One such place available now is the MinuteClinic’s  smoking cessation program.
