I'm not a smoker, but my sweetie is (and she's a Brooklynite from Marine Park, by the way! I'm from Chelsea, in Manhattan, so we agree to disagree on which borough should be at the center of the map!
Anyway, she's a Marlboro girl who (reluctantly) wants to quit too, but is afraid to try. Please keep us posted on your progress, so I can share it with her in the hopes that it will spur some kind of action. I'm so worried about her health.
to you on your decision to quit -- I know you can do it, and wish you every bit of strength and resolve to help you along your way. You're going to kick that habit's a**.
