Hi there and welcome to Healingwell
Sorry for the late response but I've been under the weather lately with a nasty head cold. I feel your fear and frustration in your post. I whole heartedly agree that smoking is a no no (though I do it myself but I don't have asthma) and it's great that you are seeking ways to quit. Smoking is very difficult to give up but in the past I have quit myself for about
2 years and one of the things that helped me the most was to stay away from smokers even if it means avoiding your friends and family for 2 weeks. If they know why it is that you have to quit then I'm sure they will be more then accomodating and understanding and may even give you the support you need. It's the first few weeks that are the hardest.
Good luck and let us know how it goes.
