I can feel ya...I just turned 50 and I've been smoking 37 years and have COPD with emphysema, Stage1. You would think with that diagnosis and many other illnesses I would have quit by now. All I can say is just keep thinking one day you will be smoke free. I try to go back and forth with a regular cigarette and the e-cig. Pulmonary Doctors dont like e cig either, but we gotta do whatever it takes.  Just keep trying, the rest is in Gods hands.
