  • Too old to quit ? Too late to benefit ?
    I quit nearly seven years ago at the age of 59 after 44 years of smoking. I had plenty of reasons to quit, and most of those were what I would broadly describe as "defensive". I wanted to avoid cancer and heart disease. I wanted to stop coughing. I wanted to live longer to be with my family. I want...

  • Finally free at age 42
    Hi XdDog That's a terrific first post, and probably the most important thing you said was that "this is a HIGHLY educated quit". It's obvious that you've been doing a lot of reading in the Library, and that is without doubt your greatest asset in ensuring that you will keep this quit ! There is no e...

  • Silver...but sad
    That's desperately sad, Deanamom. We have many members here who have lost dear ones to cancer, and that's a double blow to take. It's bad enough when any relative falls to that disease, but after we ourselves have quit and have come to understand how avoidable it was ... You have to hope that your b...

  • Britain goes (almost) smokelss
    Last night on television, I counted a total of EIGHT adverts by NRT manufacturers on TV in just ONE HOUR. Niquitin advertised their nicotine gum in "four exciting flavors" as "THERAPEUTIC nicotine". I think that's disgraceful, and surely almost as bad as the disgustingly dishonest tobacco adverts of...

  • Wednesday's Little Victories Parade
    Today is a very special day for me, so I'm taking the liberty of starting a parade, which was inspired by a post by Salubria1 (Jennifer) We spend a lot of time posting about the BIG results of our quits, but all those little victories along the way are hugely important too. They give us those littl...

  • Quit January 2006
    Hello Katie [/size] A quit is not an event, not a series of events, it's a changing way of life. That means that your quit will not be a simple, even process of moving from smoking, thru not smoking but wanting to smoke, to not smoking. You will find that over many days you become easier and easier...
