    So good to see you here Martha! This is a fantastic place to pick up knowledge and tips, I still come by to read often - but don't usually post much.. There was something in your post that struck a chord with me though - that about being mad at yourself . I shared that feeling for quite a while - bu...

  • Don't GIve Up!
    One of the many wonderful moments I have experienced since stopping my use of nicotine was when I realized that I truly no longer want a cigarette. It was especially wonderful since I thought that I would always "suffer" as a result of quitting. What an amazing revelation when I realized it was the ...

  • 21 months and so grateful for this site
    I have not smoked (or used any other form of nicotine) since March 20, 2006. For the past 8 or 9 months I have rarely even thought about cigarettes, and when I have it is to think how happy I am that I quit (I had smoked for 20 years prev). I've now hit a rough period in life, and today I suddenly w...

  • Golden
    One year and one day ago since I had my last nicotine fix. Anybody out there just starting their non-smoking journey, or hitting a bump along the way - comfort does come if you just never take another puff. I smoked for over 20 years, well over a pack a day. Smoking was imbedded in my identity, my d...

    I reached a remarkable milestone today (at least from my point of view!) - six months smoke and nicotine free!! I am posting this for two reasons: First, and probably foremost, I am just so happy with what I have accomplished that I just have to shout it out to the world. I don't really think about ...

    Thank you all so much for your kind words! It means so much to feel the support of others who have gone/are going through the same experience.

    I just had to post here on my "bronze day". Three months and a day ago I would never have believed I could reach this point. Not only have I reached it - but I have actually had some days recently where I haven't even thought about smoking! Unbelievable. After 20+ years of enslavement to my addictio...

  • World No Tobacco Day Parade
    Thanks for the parade! This site opened my eyes after over 20 years of smoking. I never thought I could quit - and a lot of the misinformation out there reinforced that idea. But here I read and learned, and that education has led to freedom from nicotine. Read everything, and then decide to NTAP. M...
