Call Me A Quitter

<t>It's refreshing to know that there are a number of people who have been smoke-free for many years. When I first ever thought of quitting some years ago, I attended an introductory session to a smoke cessation clinic. I asked what was the success rate and was told that it was 25% at 6 months. Ther...

Come on in and vent...Sharing and Caring : )

Pook, What's your secret in getting a raise when you have a fight with your boss? I threatened to quit once and my boss offered to help clean out my desk! Oops, I'd better get back to work.

Come on in and vent...Sharing and Caring : )

My day is doing great so far, so here's a hug to KathyJo and anyone else who needs it.
By the way, what's a break? Just kidding.

Zyban - It Really Works!

<t>I'm on both the patch and Zyban (recommended by my physician) so it's difficult to assess which one is the most effective. I had tried quitting 2 years ago by going on the patch alone and was smoke-free for 6 weeks before puffing more than ever. However, it was a reluctant quit for the wrong reas...
