Show your dad my post... (and hey! give him my number too! Lol... Just KIDDING!). Let him know he'* not the only who did that... I understand him perfectly.
And to be honest... when people gave me **** about it, it didn't matter. The decision to quit is a personal one. You cannot quit for your firends, your kids, for anyone. It has to be for YOU. That could be why so many 'try' to quit and fail... I don't know... ??
For the record, i've "quit" for up to three days at a time but the nicotene cravings killed me...the patch solved that physical craving.
