I can't quit smoking...

mehn!! it hit me sooo hard that i cant help myself thinking on how to quit smoking but i cant!! anyone who wants to help?? lols... everyone's told me to quit. i realized it's bad for my health, but i just can't seem to quit!

ive heard that smoking damages health (im tired of hearing it). my mom was once a smoker.. thats why she keeps on tellin me that Nicotine does have a euphoric effect which makes people feel better in the short run. As in all addictive drugs, this effect decreases over time, and increasing doses are needed to obtain lesser feelings of well-being. Smoking also provides other side benefits which are real. These are some of the other reasons it's hard to stop. its really hard to stop!! Smoking can be the "relaxation" in times of discomfort. And difficultto stop when things are going poorly.. i tried nicotine patches but it doesnt work on me.. grrr.. well to all those who wants to start smoking.. please dont!! please... hahaha

why bother quitting now?
