After reading this i will never complain again about quitting smoking. i will never touch a cigarette again. i feel like the luckiest person in the world to have found this website & to have quit smoking while i'm still healthy. I get scared just thinking about the ticking time bomb I was playing with all of those years. I will continue to read something daily written by Joel so I don't lose track or perspective on why I quit. I can't say thank you enough!
I have been quit for 2 Weeks, 5 Days, 21 hours, 19 minutes and 32 seconds (19 days). I have saved $59.66 by not smoking 238 cigarettes. I have saved 19 hours and 50 minutes of my life. My Quit Date: 3/25/2008 12:00 AM

No one else can really say if quitting was the hardest thing that another individual ever had to do. I do think it is relatively safe to say that quitting smoking helps to minimize the risks that a person will have to face the much harder future tasks that many of the people in these examples had to endure because they did not quit smoking in time.

This surely helps a new quitter to keep his own woes in perspective. Thank you so much.

Quitting may be the hardest thing you ever do. I know it was one of the hardest tasks I have ever undertaken. The hard part may be brief and painful, but life after that hump is worth every bit of suffering. One thing that keeps me off nicotine today is knowing that if I start again I will have to quit again and go through feeling horrible. You really only have to go through it once. If you choose.

It puts the quit in perspective.28days today and instead of celebrating I felt a a bit sad and lonely untill I came across this article. Boy did it make me come to my sences, appreciate my quit and be grateful that I  have managed to quit before hopefully I have done irreatreavable damage to myself. Not alone the suffering I would have to injure,but my family,to put them through the pain would be completely selfish.I have tried to quit before but did not have any support and failed time and time and time again. Drawing every bit of strength out of this site and my fellow quitters and its working.28 days nicotine free.
