i'm a 37 year old female who has been smoking since i was 18 years old. i tried to quit one time before and the longest i lasted was around 34 hours. because i have crippling anxiety, smoking has always helped me. with every thing going on in the world right now, i figured my time has come to try and put the cigarettes down. my biggest hurdle right now is the withdrawal symptoms that comes from putting the cigarettes down for good. i have major health anxiety and have for the past several years. i feel like quitting would trigger me to go into a full fledged panic attack or worse. felt like i should go ahead and join a forum where some may understand where i'm coming from as i try to stand up to this journey.
this was an introduction part of the forum, so wanted to say hello. i do hope everyone is happy, healthy and safe during these crazy times.
