Three Years Ago...

<r><SIZE size="80"><s>[size=80]</s>Three years ago, if someone would have told me that I would successfully quit smoking. I would have either laughed or called them a liar. <br/> <br/> Like most smokers, I thought that I was going to die a smoker. I have tried to quit smoking so many different times...

Filling the Pages

<r><SIZE size="80"><s>[size=80]</s>A common topic a quitter might talk about since they quit smoking, is the fact that there seems to be void in their life now. Now that they're not smoking it feels as if the days have grown longer and they are unsure of how to fill this time. Sometimes this can act...

Last night I held a cigarette.

<r>Hi Joseph, <br/> <br/> While this is something I would never ever reccomend for a newbie to try.

The Educated Addict Parade

<t>Whenever anyone asks me what method I used to quit smoking. I always respond. " I quit with education." The person usually looks confused and asks again. Did I use the patch or the gum? Did I actually use nothing and quit cold turkey? <br/> <br/> I explain to them that yes, I quit cold turkey, bu...

Looking For Comfort in a Cigarette

<t>Looking for comfort. This is one of the biggest reasons that can make a person's quit fail. I know from experience, that this was the reason that made me give away many quits in my day. <br/> <br/> It's amazing how I used to look for comfort in the very thing that I was trying to free myself from...

People Who "Get" to Smoke

<t>Everyone who quits smoking will be faced with a situation at one time or another where there they may get strong urges to smoke and may feel deprived, because they no longer "get" to smoke. <br/> <br/> A fellow quitter brought up such a scenario that she was concerned about. <br/> <br/> For years...

Looking For "Comfort" In a Cigarette

<t>Don't ever let the illusion of AAaahhhhh trick you into thinking that a cigarette will bring comfort. Cigarettes only bring misery. <br/> <br/> Cigarettes do not give pleasure. They only bring relief. Relief to an anxiety that the previous cigarette created. <br/> <br/> <br/> Eric</t>
