From John's post above:

Freedom is primarily an education resource, simply a tool, which cannot be held responsible for being used, nor can it accept any blame for being ignored.
Freedom today is doable and can even be made inspiring if you will only dig deep in your mind and recall the full honest truth of what it was really like living an entire day - day after day - from fix to fix to fix to fix. Was that the "real" you or a chemical bond?
Go the distance! You've earned the right to see who you are. You've earned the right to experience entire days where the "thought" of "wanting" to smoke nicotine never invades your thinking!
Yes, those pesky thoughts are annoying and yes, it would be nice if they were no longer a chore but the remaining thoughts will soon start becoming almost laughable and the alternative is captivity, destruction and a 50% chance of dying an average of 14 to 15 years early.
There is no excuse for killing you and no chemical worthy of dedicating the remainder of your life to. Today we're free! Let the healing continue!
Breathe deep, hug hard, live long, John

Although, to some extent, to do already have some external reminders of the damage we are causing but obviously enough is still hidden, to get away with the illusion of the Joy of Smoking...

Just a quick reminder to you recovering nicotine addicts who are now beyondImage that 10 to 14 day chemical adjustment period and toying with a new excuse to relapse - FORGET IT !
The millions of smoking memories that remain in your mind were created by a drug addict while they rode a 20 to 30 minute lifetime cycle of nicotine highs and lows. There is nothing left to relieve. Your blood is clean, your body physically adjusted to the absence of nicotine and your chemical cycle of dependency has been broken.
There is nothing in that white wrapper now except the exact same message you received with your first smoke ever - hot nasty tasting smoke, dizzy and maybe a cough - but no sense of relief - none, as nothing is missing!
You worked hard in journeying home toward "you" again and it would be crime to flush this amazing recovery like a toilet in exchange for addict's promise that can't be kept.
