Very true Kathy...and welcome! I do get so much negative feedback from people, not my family, but co-workers usually. Sometimes I just can't get over how rude and unsupportive people can be and of course not smoking makes it annoy me a whole lot more than it should right now No, I haven't tried the accupuncture, but it is a good idea and something I should consider. I have been using the patch, which I'm sure is just as bad for you as smoking, but it was a quick solution. Thanks for all the feedback and advice, I really do appreciate it!!
