I quit because I felt guilty and embarrassed that I smoked. I was involved in a private organization where smoking was prohibited. I remember going to the meetings and not wanting to talk to anyone or be around anyone because I didn't want them to smell the tobacco on my breath and clothes.
I knew that I would quit one day, but that gave me an even bigger reason. I do not like lying or being fake to people. I remember wearing the Lance Armstrong band and thinking that it didn't make sense for me to smoke and support cancer research at the same time. Also I am a big health freak. My convictions were my biggest reason.

The only thing that helped me quit was prayer. I prayed day and night to stop smoking. I not only stopped cold-turkey, but I actually lost weight. Prayer works.
