My Quit:
I began smoking at age 12. By the time I entered high school at age 13 I was already addicted... had to rush outside for my "fix" during the 5 minute break period between classes. I enlisted in the Navy during WWII at 17 and thought I was in Heaven because brand name cigarettes were 50 cents a carton on all military bases. (Civilians had to pay almost 2 dollars.)

I continued my "pack and a half a day" habit for 62 years... and then I found the QuitNet... and my life has been "smokeless" ever since.

My advice to all you Quitters is:

"Keep a good attitude and be filled with gratitude that you are smoke-free".

Frequently Asked Question
Q: Do I face fewer health risks as a cigar smoker? answer
Hide The Body Committee- A secretive group whose function would be (if it existed, which it doesn't) to clean up after the mayhem created by frustrated Quitters. Many of our members claim to have not belonged to the HTBC (not that it ever existed). But if it ever DID exist and if Qmembers WERE ever in it, the HTBC would only disappear the messes of other Quitters- never would it initiate destruction on its own. If it ever existed in the first place. Which we're not saying it does. Which, of course, it doesn't. See also: Celery is Under the Left Rear Tire.

photoJust Don't Smoke, do whatever you have to do to protect your quit. Visit the Q often and realise that nothing worth having is easy, and this IS worth having.
