" The fact is, restating the simple concept of "not smoking today" is not only important when you first quit. You should restate this upon waking for the rest of your life. Each day you should start with "I'm not going to smoke today." Equally important, each day you should end congratulating yourself and feeling a sense of pride and accomplishment for achieving your worthwhile goal. "

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!

Baby Steps!
Abandon the concept of measuring success in term quitting forever and see each day as the full and complete victory it truly is. Why take big bites that promise only one celebration (after you're dead) when you can take little bites and celebrate each and every accomplishment! The next few minutes are all that matter and each is entirely doable! John

My quit's got legs and I pledge to not ever quit quitting!

For me the motto is not another puff. and when I get up in the morning and when i catch myself unconsciously planning to take a smoke break i tell myself out loud I don't smoke anymore. then i walk away if the anxiousness is strong. if its not too strong i can just focus on something. This past week has opened my eyes to how much I planned my day around having a cigarette. I like walking much better instead now!
