That's awesome, an impressive accomplishment after any amount of years as a smoker - much less 40!! Keep it up for those grandbabys, the stress of quitting will be rewarded with more years with them, and better time spent to boot.

It took me 5 try's over 10 years using patches, pills even acupuncture. Sunflower seeds and drinking lots of water was my magic bullet. Been smoke-free for 5 years now.
Stay after it and you'll beat it. It's like an old friend but once you get past the urges you'll wonder who you ever had such a nasty habit.
