I stopped smoking with the help of nicotine patches, for 11 months, till 4 months ago. I got them for free so I thought I'd try it, especially because I feel a strong need to stop. I have breathing problems; COPD (weak lungs). I wish I could get free patches again, I really need to stop and stay stopped. It's never easy but, nothing is impossible!
