I am 34 years old and I have successfully quit for three years now. I had smoking induced asthma and was coughing up phlegm every day, on a bad day I could smoke more than 50 cigarettes.
My asthma has gone and I rarely even cough now... my skin is so much better too. Due to mental health issues I decided to quit during a quiet stable time in my life and that plan worked.
I am so happy to be a non-smoker, sometimes I even forget that I used to smoke. It gets so much better the longer you have quit for. I have nothing but positives, there was no gloom and doom. It is tough, but once you get through the initial stages there is no looking back. I used nicotine patches they made me feel calm and in control.
If I can do it, anyone can!
