Things began to get better when I realized I would remain quit even if things never got any better.

We say here that it is better to be a nonsmoker with the occasional desire to smoke than a smoker with the constant desire to quit. Marciem
Being successful doesn't mean that you'll never GET to smoke again. It means that you'll never HAVE to smoke again.

Happy anniversary Garry, enjoy your first year celebration !

Nov 6, 2011 I decided " I had enough with this sh*t "

I quit because I just got tired of the life under a rock, dark and with not enough air to breathe waiting for the day to get crushed!

Alcohol to a quit is like Kryptonite to Superman

Stop, Think and then React. Not React,Stop and then Think

Practice does not make it perfect, makes it permanent. Practice the right things!

Quitting is by far the best decision for the rest of your life.

If a Doctor gives you 6 months to live, would you start living after the first three? Quit now!

" I am a puff away form a pack a day"

Once you stop puffing or having Nicotine in any form, then and only then your symptoms will stop.

I quit with a frozen turkey. Once I felt comfortable with my quit,  I ate it.

Life is such a good teacher, that if you don't learn the lesson it will repeat it to you.

Congratulations.  I enjoy seeing quitters make it to the lido deck.  It gives me inspiration to join the club in just a little less then 11 months.

Thanks so very much all of you. I came aboard 3 weeks after I started this quit and don`t believe I could have made it this far without the support and knowledge and encouragement of this sites members. A big heartfelt thanks to all of you oldies and newbies. I plan to stay around and help when I can and seek help when I need it. To all those just starting and us who have a little time behind us stay strong and keep the nope going.
