“How can I get my family and friends to quit smoking?”

<r>Personally, over time, I've found that being an example is the foundation for persuading others to quit. People that I know who smoke eventually find out that I quit many years ago, and they see that I'm visibly comfortable with it, and happy I did. Eventually, one of them will ask me how I did i...

Last Line of Defense (or Trump Card)

<r>Another thing to remember, Connie, when you hear about people who have been quit longer than you still ocassionally facing triggers, is that, as a rule, those triggers get fewer and further between as a quit matures. This is particularly so when a quitter, as Pat has suggested, confronts that tri...
