Quitting smoking is taking control back over an addiction. This is no simple task--thousands of people die every day because they never personally mustered up the strength or resolve to fight to take over the control that cigarettes exerted on them. People must see quitting smoking as a "do or die" issue. Nowhere is this term more applicable than in quitting smoking. Every person quitting must see this is a fight for his or her health and very life--one the person must win if he or she wishes to save his or her health and your life. Smoking is an all or nothing proposition. To make sure you keep the ability to make it nothing--always remember to never take another puff!

An excerpt from Joel's original post:

So why choose our clinic? Only one reason we can think of. Because it works. We are a no-nonsense program. We recognize smoking is a true form of drug addiction, and we treat it as such. Being an addict means there is no magic cure, no easy way out. But the nicotine addiction like any other drug dependency is treatable. We offer the most comprehensive and sound support to beat that addiction. But do not let us give you the wrong impression. We won't quit for you. You will have to do the hard part. We will simply help show you how to stop and then how to stay off.

We are not the program for everyone. If you think you can quit anytime you want, do not call us. If you are offended that we put you in the same category as alcoholics, heroin junkies, or cocaine addicts, do not call us. If you want an easy, painless method that requires no effort or responsibility on your part, do not call us. But if you are sick and tired of smoking, and you really want to quit-give us a call.

Ever vigilant? Yep. But after a while it becomes akin, as Marty once said, to remembering to look both ways before crossing the street. No big deal but something you do to make sure you stay safe.

Thank you Joel...

Everyone who has ever quit and relapsed did it the same way--they took a puff.

There is no in-between choice. Smoking is now and always will be an all or nothing proposition. Don't delude yourself into thinking you can have just one cigarette or just one puff. You can have a puff anytime you want, you just have to be willing to take the other 20, 40, 60 or more cigarettes a day that goes with that puff! You must also be willing to accept all the consequences which accompany being a smoker!
