My Quit:
I started smoking when I was 16.
By the time I was 18, I was smoking more than a half pack a day.
By the time I was 20, I was smoking a full pack a day.
A year later, my father died of a heart-attack. He was 54.
My uncle and grandfather also both died when they were about 54. They all smoked till they died. Big surprise, right?

Since then (10 years) I tried to quit four times unsuccessfully. Every time I tried to quit I tried alone and failed. The last time I at least tried nicotine replacement, and although it was my best attempt (3 weeks), I still failed.

I realized I needed help and went out and got it from a doctor and the Q and my wife and this time I know I’m not going to fail.

I'm also going to live longer than 54.

I highly recommend Zyban, it'll HELP you. I highly recommend the Q. We'll all HELP you.
Think of quitting as YOUR QUIT, it's the most valuable thing you'll ever own.

Frequently Asked Question
Q: Why should I quit? answer
Nefarious character frequently blamed for human weakness to nicotine addiction. Also the cloudy looking monster sort, nemesis of the Q-ster, who sometimes cartoons around the QuitNet pages. Nicodemon is always trumped by Q-ster.

photoYou can do it, set your mind to it-be strong! Plan a trip to treat yourself with the $ saved. Feels good to be a "quitter." Good luck to you!
