My Quit:
I smoked for 47 years, usually 3 packs a day, and swore that I would die with one in my hand. I almost got my wish -- Emphysema!

I had not planned on such a painful, protracted agony. I could either smoke or breathe. I could no longer do both.

I made the decision to quit. I got a plan and set a date: September 11th 2004 at 11:59 pm I smoked my last stinkerette.

I have stayed committed. It is now 9.11.12 ~ Eight full years later and I am breathing easy. I am a non smoker!

Advice:
Adopt the attitude of a non smoker from the moment you quit. Then, when you get a craving, remind yourself that non smokers don't smoke!

photoStay true to yourself. NEVER doubt your strengths. NEVER sell yourself short. NEVER give up. And try to give back at LEAST a little of what you've gotten.
