I quit almost 15 years ago. I was ready, and started with the no smoking in the house, then the car, then only after dinner etc. My husband and our best friends smoked so it was tough, but eventually I went to a hypnotist (sp?), and threw them in the trash at his office, and never started back. My husband went the next day to the same Dr.,and started back in a few days, so you HAVE TO BE READY. Best $80 I ever spent. I would think there are clinics in Michigan that offer free or almost free services to help people quit smoking.
