Some words to live by--literally. You will live longer and better as long as you always remember to never take another puff!

Always a good one to start out a work week, or a non-work week for that fact.

Image Whether you are off for a day, a week, a month, a year, a decade, or, if medical science makes some major leaps and you make it off for a century, remind yourself each day of the favor you have done for yourself by quitting smoking and recommit for today to stick to your plan to never take another puff!

For our friends in New Zealand: this concept is as important on January 2 as it was on January 1, or July 1 or any other date in any other year for the rest of your life. Repeat "I will not smoke today" for the rest of your life and you will prove to the world as well as to yourself that it was within your capabilities to never take another puff!

Wow, haven't seen that one for a while. This really brings back memories. Waking up early, thinking about a smoke, remembering "Oh no, I'm trying to quit." Having a real argument/discussion with myself while lying there in the bed. Am I going to smoke today or not? Each time the decision was, one more day. Just one, but just for today I'm not going to smoke. Each day I told myself-maybe tomorrow, but let's give it one more day.

It worked.

Thanks Joel. This article, to me, is what cessation is all about. I Will Not Smoke Today. Plain and simple. I know the alternative.

Image Just a few minutes or even seconds a day can help to secure long-term quits.
